Night Shots w.Belair

So the auto-exposure doesn't work so well on my Belair :( About halfway through the roll I realized that the exposure of the camera was not adequate for the lighting (based on calculation from my Pentax digital lightmeter). I switched to 'B' mode for the rest of the roll and the exposures were perfect base on my calculation. I will have to investigate this matter because it seems the auto-exposure is not accurate for low-light!!!! (more info to come).

    great album. yup I noticed that Belair's auto metering isn't as good as lc-a's. I am going to try to set the light metering of the belair at 1 stop lower the next time so it get's properly exposed.

    thanks! Yeah I'm going to do some tests to determine the shutter speed in different light conditions and compare that to my light meter readings to see how far off it is
