Hello users of a Nikon R-8,
recently I received the first cards of the E 100 and tested it with the Nikon R -10 and with the R-8.
If I insert the new E 100 into a R-10 , the cart presses the pushbutton under the film gate and the built-in filter swing out . If I put in the filter-key the meter-needle ramains stationary.
With the R-8 and the E 100 :
If I push the filter key in , the camera does not register that the built-in filter swung out , because the meter-needle moves 2/3 f-stop toward higher level. If I press the pushbutton in the cartrige-box the meter-needle does not move .
So you have to insert the filter-key if using the NIKON R-8 and a DAYLIHT-FILM. With the R-10 not.
Anyone else with similar experiences ?
Nikon R-8 : If you place in two 1,5 V cells instead of 1,35 V cells you have to overexposure 1/2 to 2/3 f-stop.
Kind regards
Henry

"So you have to insert the filter key using the R-8 and DAYLIGHT FILM"

Not correct.
I did some tests with the R-10 and R-8 and K 40 compared with E 100. Inserting the filter key at the R-8 the film will be underexposed 2/3 f-stop. Now I am waiting for the test cart I shooted.
Kind regards
