I have a Minolta 400XL, shooting at 18 fps (http://super8wiki.co.../Minolta_XL_400)

I will be shooting on 100D and 500T, but I don't entirely trust my light meter and from my limited understanding, the mechanical nature of my camera makes it so that it doesn't reliably choose the right settings for these new stocks. Is that correct?

Basically, I don't believe I can simply set my exposure to Automatic and just go shooting wherever my heart desires. I need some help understanding how my camera will react to these stocks.
