I'm planning to do a time-lapse on a spring wound Bolex H16. I will be shooting Kodak 500T 7219, around twilight on a busy street in London with lots of street lights, neon sigs etc. I will be using only a tripod and will not be able to use any additional lights. I do not have an interval meter so I will have to do the time-lapse manually using the single-frame option. I plan to expose every 3-4 seconds.
The lens will be the prime lens that comes with the Bolex (sorry, I need to check the focal length on this one and come back to you guys).
1. What can I do to get a decent exposure?
2. How do I get a proper light reading?
3. What else do I need to keep in mind regarding time-lapsing by hand, the 7219 stock and shooting on london streets in general?
Any pointers will be much appreciated.
