Hi,

How do one adjust the light meter to the shutter angle? The only thing that I can think of is adjusting the FPS...

If your meter does not allow shutter angle to be input, you need to figure out the shutter speed based on frame rate and shutter angle, and then input the shutter speed.

So at 24 fps with a 180 degree shutter angle, the shutter speed would be 1/48.

I use ISO changes to adjust for everything.
