    A weighty subject...several stones worth, at least! But when trying to photograph a horse with rider, which has just run a couple furlongs, from a distance of 100 meters, on a hot 90F day, the real question is: Will 990 millibahrs pressure keep it from raining? Or should I scrap the shot and go have a pint or two??? Or a dram...or a shot, jigger....

    As a communications engineer used to dealing with dBs, the DIN system would seem to make a lot of sense with the advent of films in the 1600/3200 ASA range, if only because DIN figures of 33 and 36 would fit more easily on to a film speed dial!
