Hello everyone, im new to super 8 but have always wanted to give it a go (so this might sound like a silly question)...well finally i broke down this year and got myself a Nalcom camera, but these beast are a little ungainly so im swapping it for a Nizo 156XL which is in wonderful condition. I have read a few posts that some nizo cameras cannot meter with 64t without a ND filter, however I have never been a fan of reflective metering or automatic modes so i was wondering if i switched to full manual mode can i use my handheld meter without any camera modifications (if im correct i can calculate the correct exposures based on the shutter degree?)

Cheers
Steve

Yes, setting to manual works just fine, the shutter speed would be 1/28th of a second at 18 fps, I guess that's what you're looking for? I don't know the shutter angle though.
