Well, you could just open up another 1/3 of a stop to compensate, or change the ASA rating a third of a stop slower to roughly compensate for the difference between 180 and 150. Or you could calculate with the actual shutter speed would be at 24 fps. My quick math makes it out to be 1/57.6 instead of 1/48th, so you could use 1/60th in your light meter instead of 1/48th.
