Default How to use sunny 16 with fz35?

Hi,

I have been reading about rule sunny 16 but when tried today my FZ35 can only go up to f8.

Is there another rule for this situation ?


Thank you.

The same rule applies. At f/16 and bright sun, you use the reciprocal of the iso as a shutter speed. Example: At iso 100, and f/16, you would use 1/100 sec shutter speed.

If you open the aperture up to f/8, more light is coming in, so you have to shorten the time the shutter is open, proportionately. In this case, the shutter speed would now be 1/500 sec.

Here is a link to ALL the information you can stand on exposure.

so if f8 is two stops from f16, then shutter speed should be 1/300 with ISO at 300?

I looked but I don't see a table for a sunny f8.

thank you.

Sunny 16 rule ISO = 100 Shutter = 1/100 Fstop = 16.

Z35 ISO = 100 Shutter = 1/400 Fstop = 8.

That's all folks =
