Hello everybody,

Just another question.
I would like to shoot on Super 8 using my incident light meter. i just don´t want to rely on the internal one on the camera.
The question is: how can I set the exposure since there´s no iris ring on the lens itself. It seems you still have to use the internal light meter also in "manual mode" and then lock the exposure without even knowing the T-stop you´re shooting at.....

Any tips and ideas are very welcome!

Thanks,
MAtteo

What camera are you shooting with?

I use my Sekonic incident meter most of the time and shoot with a Canon 1014 XLS. In the viewfinder I can see the F-Stop and set it manually. In general I open up a half to a full stop from what the meter indicates.
