I bought a beaulieu 5008 s. The accus are dead, so I opened the accus and replaces it with new 6 AAA cells. Worked fine.
But the light meter gives wrong results.
When I switch to "auto" the aperture motor works and adjust an aperture. But comparing to e.g. my panasonic G3 the results are wrong. It chooses a much to closed aperture.
beaulieu 5008 s is set to 24fps so its 1/60s.
When I switch the ASA setting to about 40 than the values are nealy ther same compared to what my G3 shows at 400 ISO and 1/60 at apurtures around 2.8 to 8.
Thats a factor ot 10! But it measures the bright sky too dark. Here ther G3 shows f16 or more but the beaulieu goes to 11 ... only.
Seems the measuring is wrong.
Can someone tell me something about it. I really dont need it. But it would be fine when it works.
