I know that the Bolex has a 135 degree shutter angle and the shutter speed needs to be at 1/80. I've been told the easiest way to adjust is when you set the ASA, move the knob down one notch. I know that the Bolex looses 25% of the light and moving it down a notch should increase the light by 1/3. Would this be close enough.

Also, when shooting african american people shoul you open or close the fstop one increment after you take an incident reading?

Thanks.

1. I'd say it's close enough.

2. If you take an incident reading you should do nothing. If you take a reflected reading, then it's a good idea to close down one stop.
