I'm working on my current restart with an OM-1 with a dead meter and a new-to-me Luna Pro. Last weekend, I went out and shot two rolls of film that ended up excessively under exposed, and that had me puzzled as to what I'd done wrong. I'm also reading through The Camera, and trying to take in all that St. Ansel has to say about metering. So I pulled the meter out for a quick look this morning, and while fiddling with things I noticed that the exposure compensation ring wasn't zeroed. It was, in fact, set to drop exposure by 2-3 stops. I feel really stupid, though less so than if I'd found that *after* this weekend's shooting. In retrospect, I was surprised at how much light the meter said I had in deep shade.
