The latest changes by on June 5th, 2010[edit]

I own the Bolex 233 compact S and the Eumig Nautica and I can definitely say that they DO NOT meter a 100 ASA daylight film correctly. I don't know about the other cameras added by, but I have to say that I am doubtful.

Eumig Viennette cameras[edit]

Question: Some weeks ago, all Eumig Viennette series cameras were listet below "Cameras, that can meter properly".

Now, the Eumig Viennette 3 is listed below "Cameras that ignore the "daylight/tungsten"-notch and that will therefore treat all "100 ASA Daylight"-films as "160 ASA Tungsten"-films ".

Can anyone explain, why the Viennette 5 can handle the 100D and why the Viennette 3 can't. On the Viennette 5's page is written "Same as Viennette 3 with better lens. F-stop can be locked manually. "

Thanks a lot!

Answer: This "some weeks ago"-problem is probably caused by changes made by on June 5th, 2010 (s. above). As for the "same as"-comments: Unfortunately it's only a "basically same as" as other minor details might also differ. Those "minor details" might include the fps-rates (especially for the "slow-motion"-fps-rates), the colours and differences regarding the camera's cartridge-sensors. This is because the majority of those "same as"-comments were already part of Anssi Puistot's list that was used to initially fill this wiki.

I own a Viennette 3 and exposed E100D with it. It needs the correction as described in the list. As I already wrote above somebody put a lot of cameras in the "can meter properly" list; some of them I own and I definitely can say that they need correction of the exposure (Bolex 233 compact S, Eumig Nautica, Viennette 3). With the other ones I have no proof so I would not move them in the list but I'm quite sure that the Bolex 233 Compact and the Eumig Viennette 5 also need correction to meter properly. To check yourself: if your camera has a filter pin press it in and watch whether the aperture changes - if it changes you need to correct the aperture by +2/3 (two thirds) stops. If your camera has no filter pin then put the filter key in or if you have a filter switch move it to the bulb symbol and watch the aperture again while you do so - if it changes you need to manually correct by +2/3.

Question: I've got a realy nice Viennette 2, I want to use the Ektrachrome 100D. What do you mean with the "lamp symbol" in filter key? How does that look? Is it the "lamp symbol" that looks a bit like the symbol used in cars? I don't want to mess up.... many thanks!!

Answer: please take a look into the manual. There are basically two methods: in some cameras you'll have to insert a key to disable the filter. In other cameras, there's simply a switch where you can choose between "sun" (filter enabled/used) and "bulb" (filter disabled/not used). I don't know to which category your cameras belong, but I can show you how the symbols look on other cameras:
