    I'm not one for "weaning" myself off my light meter, I see no value in that; someone said, estimating with greater accuracy, I belive that. But I do believe in being ready when I may not have it or the batteries die, like the author is suggesting. I think it's great stuff, very practical.

    I'll definitely agree with what CPorter wrote but I'll add... ALWAYS bring an extra battery.

    I have an extra meter for road trips (Pentax Digital Spot in the LF pack and a Pentax V Spot meter in the car). And a Gossen SBC in my MF bag -- nice for the low light situations. And an extra battery or two..
    At least with LF landscape, a bad day of photography can still be a good day of exercise.

    Explanation about incident metering in BTZS book is invaluable.

    Holga 120GFN: Amazingly simple yet it produces outstanding negatives to print.

    O-n-F
    glad you know how to use a spot meter ...
    but the majority of people have no idea how to use a light meter ( spot or the other kind )
    or if they don't have a meter for whatever reason how to translate the light they see with their eyes
    and their experience in similar situations ...

    Maybe someone needs to start a "How To" thread for scene interpretation and final print visualization then explain the use of a spot meter to transpose said interpretation/visualization to film exposure and development. The ZS need not be explained... just provide "ballpark starting figures" which the reader can tweak as he/she experiments.

    Reading Adams is plenty good for that. Then it comes down to practice, learning to think through the end-to-end process in the field (film exposure to final print, as opposed to just blindly using zone system formulas to make a negative).
