the meter on my canon 814 doesn't work and so i need to work out the exposure another way
i got given a lux meter and told this could help but i don't know how, i have found a conversion chart using film speed and the lux reading
but would the shutter speed and fps not effect it?
help?

You could just use a digital still camera and calibrate it to the film speed your using. It will be slightly more contrasty than the actual image, but it would give you a good idea. You could measure it in lux and use a chart, but that sounds more complicated and time consuming than just using a still camera.
