    Is there a US equivalent to the StopClock Pro sold in the UK? I really like the features of that timer but the US cost plus shipping comes to $325 after the currency conversion. That's a bit steep for me, but I imagine I'll end up saving for it if I can't find one sold here.

    In contrast to this question, I have the beseler digital timer (will 1/10ths of a second) and I would like to start using the f-stop method. Can anyone point me to a good source for the actual numbers to use for the test strips? I've become slightly confused on the concept.

    Jeremy:

    http://www.ktphotonics.co.uk/pdf/FstopTiming.pdf

    http://www.photo.net/bboard/q-and-a-...?msg_id=004lft

    Here are two links I found today on the subject of f stop printing. The first is an excerpt from 'Way Beyond Monochrome' and the second is a thread from photo.net. You can also find a program for your computer at http://www.bonavolta.ch/hobby/en/photo/labsoft.htm but I havn't tried it yet. If you find anything else in this subject area let me know. Thanks!

    Thanks, the pdf is exactly what I've been looking for: a table of the times to use when not using an fstop timer. I'd seen the photo.net thread and it's all over the place (as they usually are) and what sent me into my original befuddlement.

    Sorry, I cannot answer your question, but have you asked Dr. Ross if he has a distributor in the US?

    If you are interested in the Stop Clock Pro I would be happy to bring one with me when I come the the US in November and post it there to help reduce the carriage. I've used one since RH Designs introduced them and firmly believe they are the best timer available anywhere, and yes I've used the Metrolux too. Please let me know if you would like me to do this.

    Les, what would the price be then? I'm quite interested.

    I'm very interested as well. November would give me more than enough time to have the money, and I can just do everything by hand until then.

    I'll speak to RH Designs about the price if I bring them to the US and post the answer.
