Re: Zone system

I think the zone system is more important for digital sensors than film. With digital sensors you get what you get - you have no latitude with development. Digital sensors are not forgiving with over exposure.

If you want to be really accurate with your exposure the zone
system developed Ansel Adams comes in handy. Just remember that
with digital and slides you typically expose for the highlights,
not the shadows.
