    Sinar Grease Pencil

    I don't remember where or when I got it, but somehow I ended up with one of those Sinar Grease Pencils with all of the markings on it. Could someone tell me how it works and what it could be used for on my P2 camera?

    Thank you

    Your description is a little vague, Kevin, but this is probably what you are looking for.

    Yep, called a Chinagraph in this country, been using them for decades, great for marking RC contact sheets with or without instructions, also used to make printing notes on RC paper proofs for detailed instructions. Once finished you can literally wipe the Chinagraph markings straight off the prints.

    Also used heavily on ground glass screens to mark placement of objects when shooting different products requiring different lighting then combining the lot as a combination print for magazine or other print reproduction.

    Lots of uses, I have around 5 colours.
