Incident meter: It just tells you amount of light falling on a subject, which is equal to measuring a gray card at the subject using a spot meter.
Scene: Park with dense foliage.
Medium: Roll film.
I am interested to meter the texture of tree bark which is in shade but also the part of the bark is directly illuminated by the Sun.
To record the adequate shadow detail, I incident meter the shadowed bark with meter's dome pointing towards the camera. This gives me the base exposure.
Since, I am shooting only with roll film the highlight reading is not so interesting in this scenario.
Confusion: After reading BTZS, it said there is a discrepency between what the dome of incident meter measures to what the dial does with the measurement.
Question: Do modern meters have this discrepency too? Now, I own a Gossen Digisix and wonder whether I need a correction for the shadow and highlight as described in BTZS?
