    Hello,

    Yes, this is an interesting book.
    And of course you can read 'Beyond the Zone System' by Phil Davis, that is just about sensitometry.

    Beware of the error in that Kodak Sensitometry Workbook:

    Page 17, right side above, task 100

    The log of 4.17 is not 0.8 but 0.62.

    Hello,

    'Beyond the Zone System' is a book published by Focal Press, current edition is the 4th, I read the 3rd. The web site has the same name.

    The View Camera article is interesting, but just a glimpse of what you will read in the book. Take the time to read this book and you won't have any trouble with sensitometry...
    The Kodak pdf is just as interesting.

    If you really want to learn about sensitometry just go tell your sig. other that you purchased yet another new camera without telling them. Sorry, me bad.
