Brian:

A little frustrating, since my old Pentaxes, and a couple of even older Exactas (as well as my N6006) can do this....

(Now, if I could remember what I did with the Exactas....)

Still, the "try it" mode isn't the end of the world.

Lots of film experience, way back when, involving the whole processing range - b&w, color, and transparencies, as well as Cibachrome. I think the "expense" issue of film stuck with me. Even though film is relatively cheap and convenient when we're not sending the stuff to the drug store, using a meter just works better .... I think my daughter's girlfriend got the Luna Pro....

(All I have left is the N6006 and a K-series Pentax, and, come to think of it, a 4x5 Crown Graphic. That one's only slightly younger than I am, and probably belongs in a museum. I probably should have kept the Exactas, too, on the same basis, but the two that work are great "student" cameras. One's a classic early-60's - can't think of the model #, and one's circa 1972, after they went to what amounts to a clone of the Pentax SPs. I wish I had one with the goofy meter - the one that looks a bit like a Nikon F metering prism - just for laughs. I don't think any of them actually worked, though .)

Regards,

Why just a quick note when you can write a novel?
