  1. Re: The mysterious “Hutchings” filter factor for b/w landscapes

    You see clouds, you see sky, you think: the clouds must be visible, besides that gives the picture drama and depth. And last but not least, the sharpness impression increases, because apparently the...
  2. Re: The mysterious “Hutchings” filter factor for b/w landscapes

    Of course, this is all very complicated. You're right! I just wanted to think logically through the matter.

    If you use a 35 mm camera, you are only marginally interested in the zone system....
  3. Re: The mysterious “Hutchings” filter factor for b/w landscapes

    Very handy and nice combination!



    So, here we go! +1.6 EV is your filter factor. The shadows will be good then. As for the highlights, you will have to develop a bit shorter. N-0.5, so about...
  4. Re: The mysterious “Hutchings” filter factor for b/w landscapes

    That's exactly what I think. Also concerning the rest of your explanations. - Besides, this was not invented by Barnbaum, but by Adams, as effective ISO instead of nominal ISO.

  6. Re: The mysterious “Hutchings” filter factor for b/w landscapes

    Why so complicated? Imagine the zone system scale. If the structured shadows are in III and the structured highlights are in VII, then at -1 EV underexposure the shadows fall in II and the highlights...

    it is.a good idea to combine 2 reels in a paterson 8. it takes 14 seconds to fill and empty. i like it and do it regularly. you need only 2.5 liter. i have dev times of 7-9 minutes in hc110 h. the...
  8. Re: The mysterious “Hutchings” filter factor for b/w landscapes

    Perhaps the filter topic is inexhaustible. I need to write it down here on the forum so I can think it through logically. If we want to get a reasonable grip on the problem, we can probably only use...

    A 300$ tutorial: why not?

    What is described here as PMM can actually be well integrated into a combination of two different (!) zone systems, if I understand correctly. Perhaps PMM is just a...

    Nonsense. I just wanted to know from you what PMM is, and you didn't want to explain it to me, for whatever reason. Anyway, you are annoyed by me instead of just explaining it to me. This is how I...

    Re: Reveni spot meter

    Of course, and that is not in question. - The question for me was only why they verbalize -1 EV or -2 EV as "somewhat dark", nothing more. The way you present it reminds me of the Gossen Profisix /...

    Re: Reveni spot meter

    I don't mean to tease, but that's how far I've come. But if the light meter asks for "somewhat dark" or "white with texture'", and if that is supposed to simplify the exposure of color film, then I...

  29. Re: Is it a linear progression between 90mm and 150mm?
