I have re-read your exercise and the part I am good at is yes,you guessed is cursing .seriously tho I have picked up that book by blaker and am wading my way though slowly.As most of my shots will be outdoors I am wondering how limited I will be with my Konica setup.If I do go Nikon How much better of will I be with an 8008s over the n70 that I have now?Iknow I am asking rookie questions,things that you no doubt have learned many moons ago but Im a little frustrated with my lack of sucess so far.It seems that the only good choices I have made are the book by Blaker and the sekonic light meter(L-308s)
