Hello,
I just got my Bauer 508A camera, which is read only 40 or 160 films, that?s why I have to use my external light meter if I want to shoot on 64T, triX and 500T.
If I know well, my camera has a variable shutter, but I don?t have any fact about the angles,its not written on the camera, and I don?t have the manual, but I think its 180 when its totally open (?) In that case, on 18 fps I can use 1/36, and 24 fps I can use 1/48. Is it right or there is something else I have to take attention? Maybe some light loosing in the viewfinder, I don?t know.
How can I do the most exact lightmetering?
If somebody has an English manual for this camera pleas email me!

thanx
