First, I want everyone to know that I've googled all of my recent post and searched this forum before asking my recent questions. I appreciate everyone's patience on here throughout the learning process, and I'm hoping to get to a point where I can provide input as opposed to just taking it.
Tonight I shot a roll of 500t in outside with just a few outdoor lights and a fire. The aperture setting was pretty easy to guess - wide open. Since it was fairly dark out, I didn't pay much attention to my meter inside. That being said, I forgot to change the asa speed. Now I'm pretty sure that I understand super8 cameras well enough to know that it being left on 200 when I had 500 in the camera shouldn't affect my film - Right? Is the film speed dial on a beaulieu 4008 just for operation of the internal meter, or did I completely misunderstand its function?
