1) I was going to create a controlled lighting situation at night in my backyard with artificial lights to test the in-camera meter versus a hand-held (which I don't have but can borrow). However, because the old K-3 can suffer from light leaks, I don't know if night testing makes sense, which won't accentuate those leaks.
2) So if I do daytime testing instead, using a clapboard, I would do that seem meter testing, but do it first without taping the film door...then taping the film door..and then also taping the film COUNTER, since I read about a K-3 owner here who had a problem with this.
Anything else you can think of? Like, should I test all of the fps settings as well?
I don't think I want to screw around with the zoom yet, because I'm pretty sure that's going to be okay. Bit I know that can wreak havoc with the tests, so for now, just ignore that?
