Broken Light Meter
Posted 19 February 2007 - 06:35 PM
I was wondering if anyone could help me out. I have a Canon AE-1 with a reliable sensor. Both cameras have lenses with a 52mm diameter, my only question is does the size of the film affect the exposure? Should I assume that the AE-1 lets more light in because it has a larger film format or would the light meter be the correct reading for the super zoom-8? Any help with this would be appreciated.

Plus compensation for the prism of the reflexsystem. Normaly around 1/3stop.
Figure out the Nikon's effective shutter speed
Shutter degree of the nikon is 170, gives 1/51 @ 24fps with the 1/3 compensation you should set 1/68 on your meter, 1/60 is the closest on the AE-1...

I'm curious as to where you found out that information about the camera, and how do you know what kind of reflex system it has? Or were all consumer grade S8 cameras made with that kind of reflex system(cheapest kind?)?

I'm curious as to where you found out that information about the camera,
the 1/3stop compensation is approximative, but most reflex-systems with prism eat about that amount, some people say 1/4, but I rather overexpose b/w reversal than under
