    Hey guys

    Good news. I've watched all the YouTube clips in a bit more detail and read all the posts etc and this week I've shot another two rolls while I was on London.

    Though my shots were not fantastic, at least they're not all white! So the unrolling was clearly the cause and not the camera. Now 'all' I need to do it work out how to better meter a scene. The two shots below were taken by using an incident light meter that I held in front of the lens pointing it AT the scene. In most cases it reported EV values of 2 or 3 so I usually shot at about 3 or 4 EV to account for the brighter areas.

    Ted, doesn't look like the metering was massively off although pointing it at the scene is using it in reflectant style.
    Stop worrying about grain, resolution, sharpness, and everything else that doesn't have a damn thing to do with substance.

    Ted your using the incidental meter the wrong way, you should point the dome from the subject at the camera lens.
