Hello everyone

To keep my beloved F6 company, I have just bought an F4 and the DW-20 finder as an option to the standard DP-20. Not only that, but I hope the waist-level finder with enable me to achieve more 'keepers' from candid street photography.

Any tips on using the camera with waist-level finder, especially regarding exposure? I see only spot-metering is available with the DW-20. And does any real care need to be taken with light entering the finder (and misleading the meter)?

More generally, is the meter biased towards reversal or negative film stock? Some say it is better to use a slightly lower ISO rating with B&W film stock (I'll probably use HP5+ as it is all I can buy easily).

Any other comments welcome.

Many thanks.

Stephen
