Quick question: Using a Canon Scoopic with Fuji 250D. What is the recommended exposure to leave a safety margin?

-In outdoor daylight?
-Indoors with Mixed lighting (big windows)

When shooting negative, I usually open up about 1/2 of a stop beyond the meter reading. It gives you more room for error so that you can adjust the exposure in post if needed.

A word about the Scoopic: Having used that camera I know it has an internal light meter. DO NOT RELY ON THAT READING ALONE. If you have access to a hand-held light meter, use that as it will be far more accurate.

that stock like to be overexposed. Like Bil said, 1/2 to even a whole stop over is good. It holds the highlights really well. this all depends what look you want.
