hello,

I have just bought a pentax adapter for my Beaulieu 6008s camera. When the lens is mounted, by how much should i over-expose by?

Cheers,

Tom

Hi Tom,
I don't quite understand the question. why should you overexpose your film when you're using a lens adapter?

Cheers, Dave

i thought that perhaps because i am using an adapter, i would lose some light. And also i am using 35mm SLR Lenses. I just wondered if this makes a difference at all?

No it shouldn't make any difference. A lens is a lens, and an f-stop is an f-stop. Just set your stop on the lens as usual.
