Are you using transparency, negative/colour or B&W film? If you are using transparency, exposure will be more critical than the quite relaxed allowance of negatives.
OK. I will bring my Canon 30D with me tomorrow just to test some reading against my Luna Pro. Even a reflective reading against my wall panel in my room has a 1 stop difference comparing to the incident reading. I am not sure what the reflective meter would be metering if my subject is some distance away. I am shooting with color negative, Fuji Reala 100.
