Polaroid Photo-Tip #10: When to use exposure correction
by Thomas Preyer (last updated: Dec. 22, 2016)
Today's tip is an important one for using Impossible color film. When should you use the camera's exposure correction?
|Exposure correction slider on your Polaroid 600: Default position (middle)|
Your camera has a slider to control how bright or dark your picture should be. Adjust it to manually tell your camera to change the exposure of the next picture. With the Impossible color film (Dec. 22, 2016) we recommend leaving the slider in the default position.
|(1) Adjustment in normal bright daylight|
Your pictures turn out too light? Move the slider further towards the black arrow (2).
|(2) Adjustment for a very bright setting|
Your pictures turn out too dark now? Move the slider towards the middle position (3).
|(3) Adjustment for when your pictures turn out to dark|
you wouldn’t move the slider towards the white arrow. |
You might want to move the slider as shown in picture (2) when either the sun or the setting is very bright.
