Hi all, I recently responded to a local ad and purchased a Honeywell Pentax Spotmatic camera with a couple lenses. I really went to score some cheap manual focus lenses (since I already have an adapter to use them on the Panasonics), but once I got everything home, I really enjoyed everything about that little spotmatic. The feel in my hands, the way it meters light through the lens, proper dials for shutter speed and an aperture ring. I'm sure all this seems like no big deal to all you veteran photographers, but the tactile experience (and focusing through that big, beautiful optical viewfinder) is something I definitely want to try. It seems in good overall shape and I'm gonna throw a roll of film in today. My idea is to also bring along the gf1 and try to take similar shots and see how they compare. Nothing scientific or anything, but I figure it might help to see if the metering is accurate and stuff. What I'm not 100% certain of (and hopefully you seasoned old hands can offer) is whether the setting will more or less be the same on the 2 cameras? Now, I understand that the spotmatic uses something like a center weighted average metering (and depending on how it averages, it might be metering some trickier scenes a little different than the gf1), but if I'm using 400 speed film and set the camera up for that would i also want to set the gf1s ISO for 400 to match the speed of the film. Or is telling the camera that I have 400 speed film in there like using using a camera at its' base ISO? I will also try to use the same aperture to get "similar" depths of field (don't overwhelm me with your answers being TOO technical about differing DOF on different film/sensor sizes) as long as the shutter speeds won;t be problematic for "freezing" the action. Any other tips or suggestions or things for me to consider before I start off on this un-scientific comparing of 2 different "systems"? I look forward to your responses.
