Hi all. I recently purchased a Soligor digital spot sensor. Unfortunatly it came without a instuructions manual.
Anybody know where I might get my hands on one, info about translating the ev reading into F stops. Cheers

Exposure value number 1 (EV 1) corresponds to a 1 second exposure at f1.0

Here's a table of other possibilities of shutter speed and aperture combinations: http://www.chem.hels...s/photo/ev.html


Edit: Yes, unless you have calibrated it differently, a spot meter will give you a reading that will place the tone you measured in zone 5.
