Quickie Tipster: Table for the Calculation


I often long pondered the same set of preferences for this or that shot for the camera “Lubitel”. I do not know what causes it, because with all the other cameras I shoot very fast.

I decided to help myself and made a small table to determine the required settings. This inspired me to work the table from the Lubitel 166 +.

I’ve added to this table based on 800 ASA film and stuck it on one side of opening near the top-down viewfinder. Perhaps it is useful to someone ― not necessarily for the pro. Do memos and stick them on the camera ― it helps when shooting!

    Nice shots you got there!
    I've been trying to figure out a way to come up with an easy guide for shooting at the highest aperture for all settings. Sunny 16 requires that I change my aperture but not shutter speed. (as you already covered in this article) I wonder if there's an easy formula for keeping my lens at f/1.9 or f/2.8 and shutter speeds graphed accordingly based on various lighting situations. Hmm....
