    Brightscreen with Hasselblad PME meter?

    I'm in the market for a screen with a split prism. Hasselblad 42215 and similar... but the prices are exorbitant to say the least.

    I'm using a PME with an Acute Matte screen - are the Brightscreens the same brightness as the Acute Matte screens, or would I need to adjust the meter?


    cheers,
    Raoul.

    Ive got a acute matte screen on my 500CM and like it. Its my understanding that the Acute matt is ia brighter but I never used a Bright screen, so no first hand knowledge.

    Any brand of "bright" screens shows you a "bright" image because they are so designed as to concentrate most of the light coming from the groundglass toward the eyecup... and your eye.

    But the photocells are not there, they are beside the eyecup ; so, the screen may not be so bright for them, and there is no evident relationship between the brightness that you view and the brightness that your photocells see. Maybe even that this relationship depends on the lens aperture at which you measure the light with the photocell... "Sursum corda !" and use a separate lightmeter.

    right - same here, Accu-mate screen plus a PM45 with meter - the question remains, will the 'Brightscreen' brand screens require adjustment to the meter or not? (i.e. with the older Hassy screens I would need to adjust the metering by one stop).
