I have a problem with the affirmation I underlined.
The nature of incident reading is that it leaves aside the reflectance of the subject. In the same light, with the same incident reading, a middle grey subject will be rendered middle grey, a bright subject will be rendered bright, and a dark subject will be rendered dark.
Provided it is uniformly lit by a source. Since, blackest black is approximately 4.5 stops to whitest white. So incident metering will render blacks and whites satisfactorily.
It needs some adjustment when there are shadows and highlights.

Agfa Isolette III: Amazingly simple, yet it produces outstanding negatives.
