    Paper light meter question

    I have a technical question about a paper light meter which I found here:

    Paper light meter

    Can anyone explain to me why one side follows a sort of 'sunny-11' rule? I understand 'sunny-16' and use it all of the time, especially with my Canonet. Why 'sunny-11'?

    Thanks,
    Kent

    Some folks prefer Sunny-11 for more shadow detail.

    I actually found a link to in on RFF (rangefinder forum) when I was looking for info on the Canonet.

    Thanks Ralph and Michael for the information...It makes sense.

    Cheers,

    Tomsk 1d

    Kent,

    hey, thats mine, the Tomsk1d! ;-)

    Itīs based on a design by Rick Oleson... I added the Sunny 11 for us mid-european folks who know that Sunny 16 just doesnīt do it over here. Some even asked for a Sunny 8 version...

    If you guys have any idea on how to improve it, tell me. Havenīt changed it in more than 2 years and I am eager to rework it...

    Tschüss,
    Roman

    Sunny-11 works fine in Northern Europe, sunyy-16 leads to underexposure. Further south the Sunny-16 will give correct exposure - my first few rolls in Egypt were consistently overexposed by one stop

    That's brilliant Roman! A really great idea and an excellent execution. Thank's a bunch for creating it, it has really been helpful.

    Roman,
    Actually, I do have an idea!

    After reading Fred Parker's article here: Ultimate Exposure Computer I thought that maybe adding EVs to the scale would be a good idea. I'm going to put them on mine and test it out.

    Just a thought,
