  1. Hello Martin! Thank you very much for the information that will surely help us! I'll let you know what we'll get from the tests we are planning to do by the end of this month0 thank you very much! Mario
  2. Hello guys!!! I've came here with a question. We are planning to shoot a stop motion film using the single frame mode on our Nizo Pro, so the question is, does anyone know the shutter speed for the single frame mode? I know people saying it should be 1/30, is this correct? thank you very much!! Mario
  3. Martin thank you! You've been very clear and I now have a clearer view of the workflow I should use! We have to try shoot a rool like you suggested! Thank you very much Martin!!! Mario
  4. Martin! thank you very much for your help! So basically there is no difference in using (what I call) a normal light meter versus a spot light meter? Should I measure the reflected light or the incident light on the gray card? I attached the set up we used while filming. The red square marks the place where we placed the gray card. So what we did was to frame the entire gray card in order to cover the frame and take the exposure using the Nizo. We took a note of that reading, set the exposure manually and started to shoot the frames. As you can see from the picture the video is
  5. Hello! here I am again Me and my friend Giacomo shot a short animated movie in super 8 (https://vimeo.com/347293219). As you can see it is overexposed even if we measured the exposure using a gray card and relying on the internal light meter. So from what we see we think the Nizo light meter is not reliable. I was thinking about buying an external light meter to use in cases like these (in studio) Based on my budget I've found these models out: Sekonic Flashmate L-308B Sekonic Twinmate L-208 Minolta Spotmeter M Spot Light Meter do you have any opinions? suggestion
  6. Martin! thank you very much for your explanation! I do not think my heart is strong enough to open the camera 😄 I will continue using the px625 putting the sticker back in place to preserve the life of the batteries. thank you very much guys for the help! ciao! Mario
  7. Hello Nick! thank you very much for all these information!! I definitely gonna try the tape trick on the batteries. Do you think that different voltages, 1.5 or 1.4, can mess up with the camera circuits? again guys thank you very much!! Mario
  8. Martin thank you very much!!! do you think an adapter wich convert the voltage (they say with a chip) from 1.5 to 1.35 is reliable? has anyone experience in using this adapter? I've also found an adapter for the 1.4 zinc air battery whithout the voltage conversion.. do you think the 0.05 difference in voltage will producen well of course will produce wrong light meter reading, but I mean, do you think this will be a neglectable difference? thank you very much!! Mario
  9. I own the 801 macro but i used both and to be honest I'd change mine with the pro for a couple of reasons: 1 - the pro does not have separate batteris for the light meter although I it is not so difficult to find the light meters batteries (I use these WeinCell MRB 625 - 1.35 V) 2 - you can use the pro on a tripod without having to unfold the handle, which I find very handy I think these are the reasons for me and from my experience that make me go for a pro but to be honest I do not know the price difference between the models. I think the price makes the distinction. Mari
  10. Hello! I've got a question about the batteries used by the light meter. The nizo 801 macro light meter uses his own batteries so I've always used the kind I attached to this post. My question is: I've bought a pair in february and so far I've used the camera with just one super 8 cartridge. The rest of the time the camera was on my shelf, switched off. Yesterday I tried to use it and the light meter was dead. So, is it normal? I mean, in 6 months I used the camera once and the rest of the time it was resting, switched off, on my shelf. With very low usage is the lifespan of this ba
  11. Thank you michael! yes we tried with the power zoom and everything seemed to work fine.. we are waiting to see the result. Thank you!
  12. Nick, thank you very much! It is clear now, I just tried and everything seems to work right. Tomorrow we're gonna shoot... finger cross! Thank you!
  13. Hello guys! I've got a question for you that could sound stupid but I am thinking about it for a couple of days. I've got a nizo pro and that has been used by me only one time, just to test if it's in order. Everything seems to be ok, but I forget to try the macro setting. Now I have to shoot some macro scenes with this camera and I am looking for suggestions on how to get the frame perfectly in focus. The manual says to always use the longest focal leght to get the focus, (use the telephoto setting for focusing. To focus (...) set the focal lenght to 80mm). Now my question is, how c
