    Tom, another method to try is to figure the factor and then divide your film speed by that factor. For example, if you use a 150mm lens drawn out to 300mm then (300/150)²=4, then (ISO/4)=new ISO. If your film is TMY-2 and you rate it at 400, divide that by your factor: 400/4=100. Measure your scene at 100 to get the proper exposure.

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

    I have this chart in my bag with me. If I do the math of (180/135)²= 1.7. This is 2/3 of a stop. This chart shows that the difference between f/13.5 and f/18 is 2/3 of a stop.

    That's a good match to the actual number of 0.83 stops! A 1/6-stop error is more than acceptable.

    Cool, that makes sense.
