    Sunny 16 and a meter in jacket pocket to occasionally see if I'm on the right track.

    I have found with negative film, Sunny 16 is perfect, and my exposures turned out fine. It's gets harder the darker it gets in my opinion. In broad daylight, I find it very effective. I'm in London, and I did the same in Hawaii, results were just as good.

    Ha good one Ralph!

    And the change in 1960, did it have anything to do with space?

    I bet scientists at NASA were anxious to get the negatives developed from the walk on the moon to verify if the sunny 16 rule applied there too.

    The "Solar Constant" bears that name for a reason. The sun's energy output is quite uniform.

    The f/16 correlation should be accurate at mid latitudes for subjects illuminated by direct sunlight
    without intervening attenuation, like high clouds, haze, smog, etc, and without abnormally high
    ground-level reflectivity (sand, water, etc)..

    A lot of human existence is due to human error.

    The camera catches light. The photographer catches life.

    I too have seen inconsistency with the sunny 16 rule in South Georgia. It's mainly sunny 11 dropping to 8. I just attributed it to varying levels of hazyness; humidty, pollen, and polution along with composition. There have been many times when I thought the meter was underestimating the amout of light on a seemingly sunny day but in most cases the meters were right and my eyes were wrong. Gotta get better at reading the shadows and color lightness I guess.
