I need some guidance on exposure for black-and-white film with my Nikon F100. On Aperture or Program, the Matrix metering looks like it tends to underexpose the shots. This is especially true when there are dark tones near the bottom of the photo (or anywhere else, for that matter). The film is metered at its rated ISO. I was wondering if I should change the metering to Center-weighted and the exposure mode to Manual, and see what that does. The F100 does excellent work with Kodak Ektar 100, at its rated speed, FWIW. What is your collective experience with this camera and B/W film?

Thanks to all who reply.

With best regards,

Steve
