Was playing around outside with a Crown Graphic and Lumedyne 400 single strobe (with reflector only), in the late afternoon, about 8-10 feet from subject.
I was flash metering 100 and 400 Polaroid (Type 54/52), and _really_ was blowing out the highlights for both.
I'm pretty sure the synch was set to X. What would the result have been if on M?
I compensated a half stop, because the shutter speeds available on the Synchro-Compur closest to 125 is 100,
I set the meter to sync at 125 (don't think I could have set it to 100), and the shutter only has 100 (and I didn't think I could guesstimate 125) - (can this shutter sync at any speed)?
For 100 vs 125 I added a half stop to the aperture, e.g. if meter said 125 f/22, I would set it to 100 f/22.5, and if the meter was a little over like 125 f/22.5 I would compensate that as well by closing down another half stop.
Still, my Polas were what looked to be 2 stops overexposed.
