Does anyone have an ASA Speed for the PD-150? I need it to choose a base F-Stop for my lighting design? Any help is greatly appreciated.

I guess the specifications must be 2000 lux N = 10 (11-1/3) typically (Power HAD Sensors) , set your meter to 640 or 500 ISO. If it's only to have a base to work on, you'll be fine.

seems like it's not easy to find the specs of this camera - Sony gives a minimum sensitivity that assumes at least a + 18 dB gain and even considering that, that goes to 2000 ISO ! So there must be at least one stop that comes from somewhere else (low speed ?) I don't know

If you want a more precise setting, you can figure out by yourself, depending on what you've got : meter ? luxmeter ? waveform monitor ?

Search on these forums, the way to do it has been discussed several times. If you don't find that, ask again.

Regards,
