A kind of nonsensical test

Because we don't know if we ARE measuring light.

What we're doing is asking the camera to give us an exposure reading for pitch black. It's nonsensical because even if we DID expose for as long as the camera suggests, we'd get nothing but black.

So the camera is essentially giving us an upper limit reading that perhaps does NOT relate to a usable exposure.

When you turn the LCD backlight on it's giving us a different upper limit reading but one that STILL probably would not result in an exposure of any kind.

Sometimes I wonder if these forums would be better served if people stopped photographing the back of lens caps and actually photographed the world out there.

I'm a rebel I guess.
