    1/2 step test strip, works other values as well...


    08|08|04|04|02|02|04 <- incremental exposure L-to-R
    ------------------------------
    32|24|16|12|08|06|04 <- resultant exposures

    I don't know about you - I find the progression from f/stops on the camera to the f/stop timer much more easy. Or, if you want to make it cheaper, the f/stop table.

    And I think you can bend Tri-X or HP5+ to whatever you want it to be (within reason - of course you can't make Delta 100 or Tmax 100!). The negative is just a start.

    I've spent a whole chunk of my life using the 2.8, 4, 5.6, 8, 11, 16, 22, 32 progression on my camera (s).

    I guess it just gives me comfort .

    Comfort is good. I just want something I can keep track of with a metronome. Even seconds work best for me.

    Thanks for all the great info, whether on topic or not! I've learned a few things that I hope to try soon.
