complexity of camera settings "Zenith" depends on whether he has the complete exposure meter.This is a special device with a photocell, to measure the amount of light and allows you to set these values ​​aperture and shutter speed at which you get good at light and color photos.In the "Zenith" light meters are of two types: selenium and TTL.Selenium typical for models E, ET, and others.TTL exposure meter is characterized in that the photocell is located right in the lens, it is much more convenient.Determine how your camera is equipped with a light meter.
If your Zenith TTL-exposure meter is installed, be sure to replace the battery, even if it works.As a conseque
nce, the use of old batteries leads to underestimates of the meter and overexposed images.TTL-exposure meter has an indicator directly into the lens.This is a small arrow, which must be exactly in the middle, if the exposure setting is ideal.It rises when the frame is too light, and lowered when it is dark.Arrow meter shows the value only when the shutter button is pressed.To check the exposure, press lightly on the shutter button, but not so much that the shutter responded.
aperture and shutter speed controls the amount of light that hits the film.The easiest approach is to exhibit self-control, close in meaning to the ISO film and adjust the aperture of the exposure meter.This means that if the film has a sensitivity of 100 units, the shutter speed should be 125 200 units - 250 400 units - 500.
If selenium light meter, can not pay attention to his testimony.The fact is that such solar cells are rapidly degraded, and since stopped making them for a long time, then your light meter, too, most likely, does not work correctly.If you do not have practical information on the selection of the exposure, it is best to get an external light meter.Set the shutter speed, the aperture of the exposure meter to adjust.If the maximum open aperture light meter shows that the light is low, you can set a slower shutter speed (the lower number extracts, so it is longer).When fully closed the aperture is still a lot of light, the shutter speed must be reduced.Some modern amateur photographers use digital meter instead of "Soap".
When put options by shooting the exposure meter is not possible, you can use the proven recommendations in this regard.Alternatively, you can use the exposure value recommended in the table.
Experiment.First-time use film to 12 frames recorded shooting parameters under which the pictures are taken.So you'll quickly see what options to put in different conditions, even if you have no light meter that can help.Remember that the delay determines the time during which the light will affect the film, and adjusts the amount of light exposure.Try different settings, you'll quickly get used to the possibilities of the camera and be able to make good shots without worrying about the shutter speed and aperture.
When the exposure and shutter speed are displayed, focus on the subject you are shooting.This is the easy part of the setup.
