I have a question about using an old school light meter, Gossen Luna Pro with the battery adapter. I shot my first roll of medium format film last week and using my Canon 30d to meter the scene. It works and the shots were a bit overexposed. With the Gossen Luna Pro light meter, I can meter the scene with ambient light or reflective. Let say I want to take a light reading of some tree during the fall foliage and there is a body of water (lake) in between me and the trees. The sun is at my back, 8 o clock. Do I meter this scene with the incident mode? Or do I meter off the reflective light coming from the trees? Would the reflective mode be accurate even when I am no where near my subjects?
In order to answer that question we need to know what type of film you are using.
