Sometimes you read an article in a magazine and it looks really sound because is has tables and charts and curves. But what if there were all sorts of errors or sources of error, mistakes etc in the test? As we know there are many variables to manage, and as I've come to learn, designing a proper photographic test is not so easy.
Michael, to put this into practice, someone should start a new thread where a given methodolgy is critiqued. The example should probably come from online to assure it's accessible to everyone. I think it would be fun, but I have a strange sense of fun.
