    1)They're bulky. To me.

    3)I Don't use sheet film or the Zone system.
    4)I don't have a Sinar F.
    5)I can eyeball exposure closely enough if I need to compensate for deep shadow
    or bright highlight if I need to.
    6)My negatives are good enough with an incident meter.
    7)I wear hiking boots year round.
    8)I don't wear long johns in the summertime.
    9)I like boxer briefs.
    10)I also find a RF easier to focus in dim/dark areas.

    I don't think they're troublesome to use. For you. Just not my thing.
    Fair enough.

    Yes, I see now where the futzing around part factors in, a switch to regular briefs might help.

    WOW...when I asked the question I had no idea it would cause such a "dust up"!!! But I have learned form the back and forth. I would think form all of this it is obvious that some people like chocolate, some like strawberry and some like vanilla.
    I think that if you have a method that works for you...it is the correct one.

    I only asked the question because at this point I don't have a method. I have had better luck using the meter in a reflective mode but that is subjuct to change as I learn more about how to use a hand held.

    A talent for asking questions that touch 'the heart of the matter', i'd say.
    Keep it up!

    Here are 4 shots off the same roll with my RB. Neopan 400 in XTOL 1:1
    neg scans.

    First two are reflective the second two are incident. I am not sure that I can really see a lot of difference????

    Firstly... nice images.

    Secondly...those all have an overall normal range of tones (more or less) in relatively even lighting.

    Thirdly... did you scan them all at the same settings and/or adjust them in PS? Some overexposure is basically harmless and is easily corrected.
