To me, the Zone System is a method used to determine the development of your film.
If you are not shooting individual sheets, or multiple film backs (N, N +1, N -1, etc.), or different bodies for different lighting contrasts than it really isn't the Zone system you are using.
I think the OP is really just trying to figure out how to best use a spot meter with roll film.
That is right, even if I cannnot use ZS for landscapes with roll-film I think it is still possible to use for portraits.
Since, I do not know whether it is good idea to put all my portraits in 18% gray ;-)
Nevertheless, a beginner like me will be fascinated by ZS.
OM-1n: Do I need to own a Leica?
Rolleicord Va: Humble.
Agfa Isolette III: Amazingly simple, yet it produces outstanding negatives.
