Hi,
I'm planing to shoot a music video using the bolex h16 camera i just bought.
I don't have a light meter now and getting one soon won't be possible so i's thinking about using my trusty nikon F4 camera as light meter....what do you think? will it work?

the bolex i bought comes with a Vario Switar RX 86EE f2.5 18-86mm Zoom lens, and someone down at film lab said that with this lens i should use 1/65 as shutter speed because RX lenses conpensate that well known 25% of ligh loss.

I will shoot kodak vision2 200t both for INT and EXT

that being said, if i'd set my F4 to shutter priority and set the shutter speed at 1/60, will i get good resoult in terms of exposure?

thank you very much guys!

sorry for my english

Can you get an 18% gray card to use with the F4?
