I have sekonic 408 and use it all the time.. but I thought just off the top to make snap call on Fstop it would be great to know.
With B&W, I use kind of a bastard zone system which doesn't leave room for error, either.
I miss those little fold up sheets that used to come in the film boxes.
Sunny-16 rules. Last summer I made a mistake of trusting my in-camera meter and a whole roll was drastically over exposed due to a dying meter battery.
I should remember the habit of sanity checking the metered settings with Sunny-16 observations.
For me it's more like Sunny 8. :) I like thick, bullet proof negatives. :)
I meter or rely on experience, depending on the details of the situation.Quote:
What do you do under difficult conditions? Meter.;)
When I was playing around last weekend. I double checked with my sekonic and found out that sunny 16 was accurate to sekonic for most cases. Pretty cool.
I broke my meter about 2 months ago and don't like the Mamiya's built in so have been using sunny 16 exclusively. More proper exposures than using Aperture priority.
I use sunny 16 rule when my meter battery goes 'dead'.
