The equation I use is:

new_time = old_time x (new_M +1)^2 / (old_M+1)^2

where M = new magnification (print/neg) and m = old magnification (print/neg)

The exposure time factor would be:

Factor = (M + 1)^2 / (m + 1)^2

I wonder if Nicholas could supply the magnification in the above examples. I would like to see how this equation (converted from 'factor' to stops) compares to the metered values measured by Nicholas.
