Help with Minolta Spotmeter
I am trying to understand the behaviour of my digital minolta spotmeter f in this regard:
If a measure my scene looking for a mid grey zone i get a certain exposure, lets say f4 at 1/500th.
Then, if i click on the S button(for shadows), according to the manual, the minolta should give me preference for the shadows letting eventually highlights to wash-out.
So, why after i press S the meter changes to f8 at 1/500th ? Shouldnt the shadows preference give a exposure with lower f stop, hence more light?
Anyone? Many thanks.
