When you have a standard procedure for making contact sheets, I can tell you from my own experience over the last year, that you'll quite easily see if the developing or the camera metering technique is not good. Many times I am able to see where things are going wrong, hopefully avoiding future mistakes.

But all this depends for me, on the fact that I use a film I know (HP5+) and I am using one developer (Xtol 1+1). And my camera works correctly.
