Hi,

I’ve just ordered some Vision 2 200T & 500T stock and will be conducting tests with my Nizo Professional. Has anyone any advice with regards to light metering for these stocks - I have a minolta IV and will be shooting 25fps. Do I have to compensate much for the light loss through the prism? ⅓ stop maybe?

I'm not sure about the actual light loss through the prism, but I shot some rolls of 200T with the same camera and they came out very well. I kept the daylight filter on the camera set to tungsten and then used an external 85b on the lens (when shooting in daylight). This camera then meters the film as 160asa, which gives the 1/3 stop overexposure Kodak recommend when shooting negative. I pull processed by 1/2 a stop, and the film looked pretty nice, particularly the interior shots.

I regret using it for exteriors though, very grainy compared with 64T.

Good luck

Matt
