Hi!

I´m going to shoot my first rolls of Super8 with my S560 soon.Any advice on exposure using 64T? Like do I need to expose differently when using the daylight-filter and so forth... I don´t have a separate light meter, so I will have to use the built-in one.

I've recently shot some 64T with the exact same camera. I used Wein cells for the auto exposure, did not use a separate light meter and had excellent results.

I wasn´t aware of the fact that one needs "old type"-batteries for the light meter. So my 1,5V Varta 625 batteries won´t give me accurate exposures? Any tips to where I can order Wein cells on the net?

I believe those Nizos will detect the rare ASA 64 speed-indice. I say 'rare' because I don't ever remember any other films that were rated at that speed, maybe an old GAF or something.

Here's a semi-complete chart about what to do for those cameras that cannot read the ASA 64 speed notch:

This site sells them and includes a chart of which type Wein's go with which camera.

Haven't been able to find an English manual for the S560, but Martin Baumgarten does a pretty thorough job of explaining its features on this site:

Here's some footage taken with the 64T and the same camera on full auto exposure:
