You don't have the metering prism?

Ed! That sucks!
I think I've financed one of the wings on B&H already so I'll be glad to use them. Didn't even know they had a lab! Thanks!

Mojo and Shawn fire it up, let's start a thread!

Brooks! Damn you man! Damn you man!
I get to buy more stuff?

Awesome. Maybe I'll give it a try. My income thankfully doesn't depend on photography but it's a great hobby. I'm gonna have to try it! Thanks.

No I do not. I remember looking for a fe701 but they were either to expensive(for me) or they were in really rough shape.

Who's your Daddy?

Once you're setup for your own BW film processing you can then explore the wonderful world of the Zone System. You'll soon be making negatives that fit the luminance range of the scene that you're photographing. Do you have more than one film back?

You'll learn that the best negatives have the least exposure that records the desired shadow density. And the best film development places the textured highlights EXACTLY where they belong.

Then you'll be master of your domain!

Oh, and you'll be looking to purchase a one degree spot meter! The more you know, the better it gets!!!

If you can load that 120 rollfilm on the stainless steel reel effortlessly in the dark then you will be the MAN!!! I always sucked at doing that and started using these plastic reels that you twisted back and forth and it self loaded via a ball bearing.

I always used my Minolta AutoMeter IV to determine exposure.

A meter prism is handy if you want to use the RB like a big SLR. The meter prism on my RZ is pretty accurate except for the usual subject failure that all averaging reflected light meters fall for. A hand held spot meter is better.

A good incident meter works well also if you're not into interpreting reflected light readings and placing the tones of your scene onto your negative or transparency.
