Lemastre,

since the RHD-Analyzer allows calibration only to full paper grades. The half grades are interpolated. In the special case of grade 3.5, this interpolation has a little error on certain papers (e.g. Ilford MGIV). This has to do with the fact that the exposure transition from grade 3 to 4 is not linear. The same might happen to a Grade 0.5, but it is hardly visible at these soft grades. The only solution to this would be a calibration to half grades. But this would complicate calibrations otherwise. I prefer it the way it is.
