Hi everyone,

I was helping a friend move, and she found an old FM2n camera that she let me have. I know very little about it, but after reading the manual, and playing around with it for a bit, it looks to be in good shape (except that the depth of field preview lever is completely stuck).

I tried to check the exposure meter by comparing it to my D90, and it comes up with the "+ 0" rather than "0" at the exact same settings and lens. As I'll be using black and white negative film in the camera, which should be overexposed rather than underexposed, would it be okay to set the iso to be lower than the films actual rating (so if the film was iso 400, set the dial to iso 200) and shoot when the exposure meter shows anything from "0" to "+ 0", or am I overthinking the situation?

Any advice or recommendations are gratefully appreciated.

Nick Richardson
