    I am not sure I fully understand the reason for going through all the trouble of LF and then "cheat" by using a monobath?

    Re: Faulty Light Meter

    Agree. The 1/15 F16 at 125ISO off a gray card in direct sunshine is wrong.

    No need to do test shots. You know sunny 16 so you know the L-478 is way off.

    The L-308 readings sounds more in line...

    Foma is a nice economic alternative - I am happy it is available. I think 400 is fine in LF when shot at 200. In 35mm not so much.
