Hey everyone, I used to post a tiny bit here on this forum when I bought myself an EOS 400D over a year ago. Now, recently since being at university I've bought myself a Minolta XG9 and I was wondering if anyone has any tips about using the camera in manual mode, the reason being that in manual there's no light meter. Is this just a case of getting used to the settings that give you good exposure? Or are there tips that will help me use the camera without the help of the meter? Alos, if anyone's interested I can post a few of my favourite pictures I took with my 400D.
