my camera has a 160 shutter and the speed is 1/85 sec
I have a minolta digital meter and the speed selection is 1/25 then it jumps to 2/50 so how do I get the 1/85 sec reading? will there be a diffrence is I just use 2/50? im not sure how many stops over the will be?
any feed back would be great! Thanks!

I'm no Math major, but isn't 2/50 the same as 1/25? ha ha

Are you shooting still photography? What camera has a 160 degree shutter?

Anyway, yeah, 2/50 (or 1/25) won't do for 1/85. You can make your own compensations in t-stops though.

He'd have to open up, what, 1 2/3 to 1 1/2stops more? People? Tell me if I'm way off.
