Now that we've got the internet, does anyone still know how to read? And now with texting via thumbs and fender benders on the freeway, does anyone know any words longer than three letters
each? Gosh, the Zone System is pretty damn elementary, whether one needs it or not. And not all
black and white films have a lot of latitude, esp in the shadows. On a rainy day walk I might very
well estimate values using Delta 3200 in a Nikon, or use rapid thru-the-lens metering. But in the
same camera holding TMY, I'll spot meter every time. Of course, using the 8x10 one has the simple
choice between careful metering or being rich enough to waste film that size.
