Hi everyone,
I have an old Russian Smena 35 camera (http://media.skateboard.com.au/forum/im ... na35-1.jpg)and always wanted do try it. I decided to do it now. My worry is that I am pretty bad at guessing apertures, f numbers and so on at the first try, and I don't want to waste too much film. So, if I put the same sensitivity on my D5000 as the film and take the reading (and a picture and experiment) and then apply that to the Smena would it work? I know the Smena is not graduated in numbers but still...
Has anyone tried this?

Well thanks in advance...

Ivan Manko

you could always use an external light meter :)

Sure, that should work, provided the lens you use has almost the same focal length :)

it will work, i have tried it and works, but you need to make sure that you get the same light into the digital lens as you will in analog (same focal lenght)

also you can improvize if you have different lenghts...

Thanks for the answers guys. Unfortunately I couldn’t use the film camera because the... (Haw do you call it?) the thing you use to roll the film was somehow broken :( I still hope to get a film camera somewhere one day. It will be a good story to tell my grandchildren. :lol:

The film spool, or winder I think it's called. But that's too bad man. Be sure to visit thrift/secondhand stores. Plenty of old film cameras there.

Hey, Citruspers, as it happens, a couple of weeks ago I was given a Canon EOS 650. So I have a film SLR loaded with a 400 B&W. Really love the noise. And also fear it, since it costs money. (One unchargeable battery 13,5euros + film 4.5euros + print…euros :shock: ) But looks like a good fear, one that pushes you to work hard. Hard and slowly, hopefully I can finish the film before the expiry date. :D

That's awesome! Yeah those 2CR batteries are bloody expensive. Also, printing black and white is roughly 3x as expensive, so you may wish to watch out with that ;)

if you have an iPhone you can download a free reliable lightmeter app.

Damn! I try to dislike the IPhone but it's getting harder and harder.
