weston euro master

This is a weston euro master I recently bought for metering with my manual cameras. Testing with the D200, it sems (at least in the low light scale shown) to be -2EV. It may be normal. I really don't know. I have no experience on light meters. Anyway, as the shot shows, I used ISO 25 for the meter. It measured "6", that gave me 1/15 @ f/1.4. This is -3EV than ISO 200 that I used for this shot, giving me 1/30@f/1.4 ISO200, what I used on the D200 to get this shot. In the future, just using two stops down ASA, it will suffice. I have to test it in daylight to see if daylight scale also holds this -2EV behavior...



Es un Weston Euro Master que compré hace poco para medir con las cámaras manuales que tengo. Comparado con la D200, normalmente da -2EV en la escala de baja luz (tengo que probarlo más detenidamente a luz del día). En la imagen, tengo puesto el medidor a ASA25 (-3EV de ASA200, con lo que tomé esta foto), y la lectura era 1/15@f/1.4. Como estaba a 3EV de diferencia y el medidor está a -2EV, usé 1/30@f/1.4 ASA 200.
