Re: How to shoot fast with a slow camera

Hi, I sometimes try pre focusing to about 2 to 3 mtrs and set aperture to f8 ish I use evaluative metering and use exp compensation where needed.

I think manual focus is far superior with legacy lenses. I really like the focus tab on manual lenses, some have a really short throw and can go from close, mid to infinity with a 90º rotation, my film rangefinders are great for this, my mamiya rangefinder goes from roughly 5 o'clock to 7 o'clock with 6 being mid distance.

Cheers, jon
