    Ansel Adams had the Zone System... I'm working on the points system. First I points it here, and then I points it there...

    Thanks. The use of a mirror to reflect the image to the film is the same method used in the Tessina. The film must be printed with the emulsion away from the print to take out the left-right reversal.

    An interesting background story. Hulcher was always an esoteric to me, the sort, like the article said, where a missile development budget does not bat an eye at the processing cost of several thousand feet of film. It is great that they are still in production.

    If anyone ever comes across an article, if ever desclassified, about the designers of the original film based satelittes, that would alos be a neat article/book to take in. .
    my real name, imagine that.
