  3. As was pointed out in the thread and the video. I just had to laugh tonight
    when I saw her doing it. And YES I chimped when I took the shots just to
    make sure I got them. ;-)

    It was a fun video. pre-D I swore I wouldn't chimp ... but hell yes, I
    do. Not for the image itself but for histo / highlights it is
    indispensible. Chimping tames the shot.

    Unfortunately (and I will be recording the details this fall), methinks
    using the DSLR to "meter" for slide film won't do the trick. A +2/3
    bias from the D reading will be needed.

    New meter is chosen: Sekonic 558. Just waiting for the bi-annual
    Sekonic sale which should start any day now.

  6. That's what makes the video so funny IMHO. Who in their right mind isn't
    going to use the tools provided to them to get the best possible results...
    I've thought about doing this with my wife by preshooting with my D and then
    transferring the setting over to her film camera but alas she's one of those
    type who wants to be left alone to do it her way. Can't argue with her
    results most of the time so I don't push it. I'm still curious how the two
    would compare.
