    Silver foil. It won't catch fire if it gets hot. Otherwise zinc oxide paint if you really want white.

    Re: using a zone chart to determine PEI

    Let me assure you I am not confused. You stated:

    Your graphs illustrate perfectly what I said.

    They both have neg density of 0.1 for zone 1....

    Re: using a zone chart to determine PEI

    film curves are not usually straight from 0 to X so your theory goes right out the window.
    Some films have a low zone V and some higher. How are you going to handle that one?

    Re: using a zone chart to determine PEI

    Because if you put any chart in bright sunlight and measure the difference between the black patch and the white patch, it won't be 10 stops. You'll probably only get 5 to 7 stops at most. So you...

    doesn't matter what kind of card you point your light meter at. The result will be the same which is an exposure which will make the result middle grey.

    Re: using a zone chart to determine PEI

    Tim there are many anomalies in the zone system. Forget about zone 5 and throw your 18% grey card away. It causes more confusion than just about anything else.
