    To help with the dodging, make sure you turn on the 1 second bleed function (actually it is a nice sounding "tock") and count the seconds as you would if you have ever used a metronome.

    The Stop Clock is a extremely well thought out piece of equipment and you will quickly learn to appreciate its many virtues

    So, when I set the second step of the program and if I enter as you say the "+1 stop", the SC will compute this +1 stop from the first exposure and it will not correspond to the 22.6s -3stops I wish to obtain, am I right ?
    No - they are the same. If you are using 1/4 stop steps for example, 22.6 sec - 4 steps = 11.3 secs and 22.6 secs - 3 steps = 13.4 secs. The difference is 2.1 secs (13.4 - 11.3 = 2.1). If you press Store with a base time of 11.3 secs and enter one step, that step will be 2.1 secs - exactly the same.

    That's the clever thing about f-stop printing - everything becomes predictable and you effectively have a linear control of print density.
