    Here's an idea?

    Is there a film camera that can be programed so it knows what the reciprocity law failure is for the particular film loaded?

    Well if there was, it might not be the camera you would want to buy.

    Anyway what's wrong with bracketing your shots, you don't have to be accurate to 1/10 sec.....the film's exposure tolerance would cover most errors and the rest by printing.......and after a bit of night work experience, you could reduce the wastage of film by bracketing less.

    With DX coding, sure, it should be possible. But since reciprocity usually isn't an issue except for fairly long exposures, it'd be of limited interest.

    Films differ too much, some suffer badly others like Tmax100 hardly at all.

    So not feasible.

    This is really chasing a silver bullet... Like a camera that would only snap a picture when it sensed a prizewinning image. Why bother doing any work at all...

    Experience is the finest teacher and in very short order with a paper and a pencil and a few rolls of film to go with the notes you should have no problems with any sort of multiple bracketing.

    * When the film you put in the camera is worth more than the camera you put the film in... *
    * When I started using 8x10, it amazed me how many shots were close to the car. *

    Not all camera's have DX coding none of my 15 or so 35mm camera's has it

    Heck, I am still looking for a filter that improved the composition just prior to the shutter releasing!

    However I do have a bridge from Manhattan to Brooklyn that I could sell you. You can make all your money back from the tolls.

    I have one of those filters . . . . . It's called a brain

    They are useful for freciprocity failure too

    Unfortunately, research and development of new film cameras is practically gone.
