  1. Re: How should I determine lens aperture corrections for tested shutter speed varianc

    One can never have enough data, I believe. If you're still interested in an Excel spreadsheet to answer you needs, I can provide you with one if I, too, have your email address via PM.

    I tried that Kumar, but I got "Sorry - no matches. Please try some different terms." It's asking for key words (which I left blank), so that won't list my FS threads. Thanks, but I'll stick with...
  4. Re: Do not forget to close old FS listings...

    I was hoping for a list of just the ones in FS subforum. But I think, since the total list that shows up under "Latest Threads Started" is not too long I can work with that. Thanks, Bryan.
  5. Re: Do not forget to close old FS listings...

    I've yet to find a way to search the FS forum and bring up a listing of all my un-closed threads from way back, so I can close them. Is this not possible?
