    Re: DOF on 8x10 vs. 4x5?

  11. Re: Fumbling towards a correct exposure for Dry Plates

    A help? Good to know!

    I intend to shoot duplicates of a scene with the dry plates and T-Max 100, so we will see how much "help" a meter is.

  16. Re: Fumbling towards a correct exposure for Dry Plates

    You are right on every count . . .except maybe the five stops. If I rate the plates at 1 or two as some recommend, the difference will be more like 7 or 8 stops if my finger...
