View Camera



While meters that fit in the back of the camera where the cut film holders go can be used to measure exposure, most photographers using a view camera use an external hand held meter and the readings then transfered to the camera lens aperture and shutter. 



Many photographer using these cameras will often use a spot meter, but it is very important to know what the meter is reading tonally
and a grey card is often used along side the hand held or spotmeter.

With studio flash the readings are taken with flash meter in the normal manner.
