    hi charlie --

    just the opposite in my book!

    you know more stuff than we can imagine.
    i had a mentor who was a lady trained in the 30s.
    i've seen first hand what you folks can do, and it is pretty amazing!

    as always, thanks for posting!

    Good morning all, my G690 arrived yesterday, what a brute! I've loaded it with HP5+ and after work, armed with 2 slide rules, 3 charts, 1 grid and 4 meters am ready to go make some photographs. Just kidding. I've been looking at all the info you've shared with me between Fred Parkers ultimate exposure guide, Black Cats universal light code & exposure tetrad, the exposure mat, and some of your rules of thumb based on the sunny 16, and see many similarities. I feel confident now to go without a meter for a while, keeping copious notes, for comparison later when I break down and buy a meter. I will be sure to share my experience with you once I see the prints. Thanks again.. 9fingers.

    The important thing to me is to enjoy your journey! The note idea is wonderful, but somehow I always seem to lose them along the way.

    May the "force controling great exposure always be with you."

    All the guidelines should converge on the same answers. BTW, I have one of the little inserts of exposure instructions big yellow used to put in Tri-X boxes. It's really easy to follow - has pictures. If you would like me to scan it and send you a copy, PM me.

    Sorry, can't totally let this one go. Patented in 1932, most photographers had one in the mid 40's. Didn't Adams co-create the Zone System in 1940? Is it not conceiveable he had one? After all, he was pounding out polaroids when it was only a rumor to the public. Just additional thoughts.
    Thank you.
