    A Foot Switch is a great help for burning in - it leaves your hands free to hold the mask

    Before I got a StopClock Pro (which bleeps) I used a metronome to count the seconds – an idea borrowed from AAs’ “The Print”

    I saw Fred Picker's video recently (a good deal on DVD at Calumet and well worth watching). He standardized to a series of 3-second exposures which also makes good sense but not my preferred method.

    Used timers are cheap. Even if you don't get an f-stop timer, get one with a metronome function so you don't have to watch the clock during dodges and burns.
    Agreed. Look at the 'Library' section at my site and scroll down to 'ClockDial' to find the poor-man's f/stop timer! It works with almost any analog timer, turning it into an f/stop timer. Not as convenient as the 'real' thing, but a lot cheaper!
