Hopefully this has not already been asked... I searched the forum for "sekonic," but did not find what I was after.
I have a Sekonic L-558 (non-Cine) light meter. As many of you know, it has cine frame rate settings in addition to standard shutter speeds. There is no mention in the manual of what shutter speed each frame rate setting corresponds to.
Does anyone know where I would find this information? Or do all cine cameras conform to the same shutter speed at any given frame rate/shutter angle?
To be specific, I am using a Krasnogorsk-3 16mm camera. According to its manual, it has a shutter speed of 1/60 (when using a framerate of 24fps), and a shutter angle of 150 degrees. The Sekonic manual indicates that the meter assumes a shutter angle of 180 degrees, and to compensate using the ISO setting for other angles. I am using 250 ASA film (Kodak 7205), so have been using an ISO setting of 200 on the light meter, and a shutter speed setting of 24 fps.
Do I have my meter correctly set up for my camera, or are there other factors I have not considered?
