    Kodak Color Separation Guide with Grey Scale Small Size

    I have just bought a canon film camera (EOS elan 2) in a local second hand shop and I would like to Adjust the meter to match actual results in the camera. I looked on google and i found this link :

    http://super.nova.org/DPR/Ratios/
    This is for adjusting the meter to mach actual result in a digital camera but, unless I am mistaken, it would work with a film camera (i intend to use slide film)
    the guy recommands to user a Kodak Color Separation Guide with Grey Scale Small Size as seen here :


    Do I really need a chart like that to adjust my meter and if so, I was wondering if that stuff was still manufactured.

    I realise that it might be a silly query but i am treading in uncharted territory here (no pun intended) an I would appreciate some input from you guys.

    Search on the web led me to one available on Amazon.co.uk website but I am not sure about it because there is a bad review. I looked on the Calumet photo UK website but did not find any, same with ebay website.

    I am at a loss.

    The chart in the top center is a MacBeth Color Checker. It is still sold. The chart at the bottom is a Kodak chart that used to be in the Color Dataguide. It and several others similar to it are still sold in two sizes at most camera stores.

    Yes, I just recently purchased one about a month or two ago. I use them regularly for checking color accuracy in art reproduction.

    Did millions of people suddenly disappear? This may have an answer.

    That is the correct one. You can search for Kodak Q-13, the official label for this scale.

    One very much like that is included in the Color Dataguide as well.

    It also has a gray card in it.

    back to my original question if someone would be so kind to answer it : Do I really need a chart like that to adjust my meter to match the actual results to my film camera.

    Check Amazon

    If you do decide to buy one I just checked on Amazon and there are several of them, new and used, for sale. Just search Kodak Color Dataguide under Books.

    I have checked in amazon. problem is it take up to 4 weeks to deliver. Hence my original question : Do I really need a chart like that to adjust my meter to match the actual results to my film camera ?
