Can anyone give me a few pointers on how to correctly expose a LCD screen for a 16mm film shoot? I have a spot meter.
Thanks.

In addition to creating a medium grey,I also like to set the display to a full white, this will allow you to make two measurements and have two points of reference to judge your exposure. Also,remember to color balance the monitor.For example, if you are shooting with tungten film,set the computer systems white point to 3400 Kelvin (or warmest possible). This will make the monitor look warm to your eye, but properly balanced for film.
