Hi,

I just got Nikon R10 today. It is cosmetically in a mint condition. I put batteries on and the camera ran fine. I plan to shoot a short B&W film mostly on Plus-X. I'd appreciate your advice on any of these issues:

1. What should I shoot on a test roll?

2. Do I need an external light meter to countercheck the internal one?

3. If I use a Sekonic L398M light meter, do I have to worry about the shutter degree? Can I just set to the 24 fps mark on the meter?

Thanks in advance.

There'a a user manual here http://www.apecity.c...ual_English.pdf - I had a quick look and it looks like a 160 shutter angle (works out I think at 1/54sec at 24 fps)

Thanks. One more question. I have a couple more light meters I could borrow from a friend, which are Sekonic Flasmate L308B and Minolta Flash Meter IV. Which one should I use?
