    Thanks!

    Use the box speed. There are very good reasons that the manufacturers supply them. Experience will tell you how to compensate for reciprocity failure. See the data sheet for Tri-X 400.

    Warning!! Handling a Hasselblad can be harmful to your financial well being!

    Nothing beats a great piece of glass!

    I leave the digital work for the urologists and proctologists.

    A tripod and possibly a cable release.

    Tim Tams and Twinings is nice, too.

    We're none the wiser as to just what it is you are photographing at night: streetscapes, statues, desert, cityscapes, night sky, star trails, moonlit scenes... Each of these requires variations in technique and approach, and a couple (eg night skies, star trails) a bit of careful planning.

    However all those scenes are included the the newJiffy Night Calculator. See attached pdf.

    Thanks!
    Of course you could go get the answer from the horse's mouth...

    See post 23 - Vaughn shared his notes based on a handout he got directly from Michael Kenna
