My latest headache is trying to find out how to expose Kodak's Vision 3, 200T and 500T films.
My camera only meters up to 160ASA so I'm having to use Kodak guidelines.
The problem is: In order to have something to go by, I loaded a Kodak 100D Ektachrome, and took a reading with the cameras internal meter, it set the aperture to 16. I took a light meter reading and that came out at 10 footcandles, the problem for me here is that on the kodak chart an aperture of 16 should be used with over 1000 footcandles, something is not right here, and although 100D film has been perfectly exposed by the camera, it goes against the tables published by Kodak.
Therefore, I dont have a clue how the use the ext. meter along with Kodak charts for, say, the 500T.
Hope someone can help :-)
