I've searched the board for threads about how to set your lightmeter for working with the z1e. Many say it's between iso 130-180. I'm using the cineframe25 setting in 50i mode, shutterspeed is at 25. Now, if i set my sekonic l-558cine at 25fps and iso 400, i get f-stops that really approximate the autoexposure of the camera. How come? Is it the shutterspeed? I'm just pointing the camera at regular stuff in the room, so no greycard or controlled lighting. It's overcast here today, so no big changes in sunlight. Gain is at 0db.
