View Full Version : Calculating Exposure Compensation for Very Wide Lens & Tilt
I am using a SuperAngulon 58 mm XL in the 6 x 9 format (with a Horseman). I und erstand the basic principle of how to calculate exposure compensation (i.e. if t he lens is 25% further away from the film plane than it would be if focused at i nfinity, you need to make a 1/2 stop exposure correction). With the 58 mm, howe ver, it starts off very close to the film plane. Thus, when I use significant a mounts of front or rear tilt, the upper and lower halves of the image will requi re different exposures. . . . Is there any way around this problem?
Howard, is this a theorectical question or is it a real problem? Have you tried a center weighted filter?
Or a graduated neutral density filter?
...or dodging and burning the final print? ;^D>
What you're going to find is that with a lens that wide (for that format) the max camera movements you will be using will very tiny
