The exposure window in the VF that shows F stops. on my Elmo 1012 XLS has a broken microprism so I thought about marking the manual exposure dial to the appropriate stop.I've thought of several methods of doing this.One is to light a grey card to F 5.6,locking the auto iris on it,and mark the dial accordingly,eyeballing the iris changes through the film gate.Anyone else have any suggestions?
