Ektachrome 100D in Zenit Quarz cameras

Post by Muckymuck » Thu May 06, 2010 7:12 pm

Just a note for the users of these tank-like cameras on using Ektachrome 100D.

As you know, the camera has no notch readers for speed or colour balance.

The correct settings for 100% correct and accurate exposure using the automatic meter on these cameras is to set the exposure meter dial to -1 and the filter switch to bulb (tungsten). Seemples!

It's an oddity, I know, that the camera meters for 200, 100, 50, 25 and 12 ISO WITHOUT filter in place, but it's a boon in this case.

How about use in tungsten light?
100D is 25 asa in daylight, so should you set the aperture -/+ dial to +1?
Should an 80a filter be used?

-2 = 200 ISO
-1 = 100 ISO
0 = 50 ISO
+1 = 25 ISO
+2 = 12 ISO
