I am about to shoot my first short and a music video with my newly purchased super8 camera. It's a Nizo 6080. Since i really dont have much experience with super8 i was wondering if there are any DO's and DONT's i should remember and keep in mind.
I am considering a "test run" and spend like 1 or 2 rolls of film to test the camera with diffrent lights in diffrent locations.. however, since at least some of you seem to have a lot of experience with super8 i thought maybe i should take to oppertunity and ask about some things i've been wondering about.
1. How many of you use the internal lightmeter as oppose to an external one?
2. At the moment i have 10 rolls of Kodak vision2 200T, does anyone of you have any experience with this one? Did you notice any conditions when this stock was extra good/bad?
3. now for the big one: Is there anyone who can simplify all this stuff about exposure, aperture, light, shutter speed, F/stops etc? However, i do want to point out that I am not a total newbie in this matter.. I do know what the terms are and what they represent etc. -- however, what i cant seem to get heads or tails from is the part when you get all this numbers and reading and make something useful out of them.. that's the area where i need some pointers? (..anything - webpages? personal experiences? what ever can help me..)
i hope i made myself clear about that last question cause i found it a bit hard to explain my dilemma. Anyhow, thanks in advance
