Exposť for histogram or manual meter?

Hey guys, I'm noticing the manual metering on the lower screen seems to indicate I expose til I get a 0 reading as to balance the exposure but if I do so, the resulting video is dark......if I expose using the histogram, I get a more balanced exposure.....why is the mm giving me false readings?

If I try to get a 0 reading using the mm (manual meter) I'll get underexposed video......anyone else noticing this with adapted lenses?

Thanks guys-
