I have a minolta 7hi and am very pleased with it. I am doing a photography course at the moment, and part of it is getting to use a proper studio lighting setup. My camera is ideal as it has a flash sync socket so I can plug my camera directly into the setup. Unfortunately the majority of people on the course are using normal SLRs. Which means the lighting is setup for their needs. The light meter is giving a ready of f11 using ISO 100 film at 1/60 of a second. The maximum my digital camera will do, in fact any digital camera I know about is f8. I seem to be getting reasonable results but I feel my pictures are a little over exposed because of this limitation. Any ideas on a workaround?
