Shooting a student project on the Bolex H-16 camera, I understand that 25% of light is lost by going into the viewfinder. That means that on a normal light meter it has to be compensated for right? I will be using 250D stock, would setting the ASA on the light meter to 160 compensate for this?  and then could I use the light meter as normal?

 

Also is there any common problems or tips and tricks that might be useful for me to know before the shoot?

 

Thanks

Will

Hey Chris,  that was your turn at the polite social policing I guess.  Did you feel some deja vue while writing that commentary/comment.  That's to say,  did you enjoy the humour of satisfying both functions at once?
