I was wondering if anyone could suggest an appropriate external light meter to use with a Beaulieu 4008ZMII camera, (as I understand that this exposes at 1/87th for 24 fps shooting?). Also does anyone know what film speeds this camera will 'read' automatically so that the TTL meter can be used accross the range?

Thanks in advance!

On all Beaulieu cameras (with the exception of the 1000 series) you set the film speed (ASA/DIN) manually.

The 4008 can be set to any ASA from 12 to 400 - there is a knob next to the fps knob.

Any standard light meter should be fine I usually just set mine to about 1/90th.
