It's been a while since I shot film....and I don't have the time or money to shoot any tests, so some advice would be much appreciated.
Likely shooting mainly 5219 and possibly some 5213.
In your opinion (and I know everyone will differ), how do these stocks handle? Specifically, how many stops over and under are usable? Or how many stops over and under would you place your highlights/shadows?
Does this Zone system definition come pretty close? I would expect a couple more stops in the highlights, maybe between zones 7 and 9?
0 Pure black
I Near black, with slight tonality but no texture
II Textured black; the darkest part of the image in which slight detail is recorded
III Average dark materials and low values showing adequate texture
IV Average dark foliage, dark stone, or landscape shadows
V Middle gray: clear north sky; dark skin, average weathered wood
VI Average Caucasian skin; light stone; shadows on snow in sunlit landscapes
VII Very light skin; shadows in snow with acute side lighting
VIII Lightest tone with texture: textured snow
IX Slight tone without texture; glaring snow
X Pure white: light sources and specular reflections
Any tips most appreciated.
