Re: I think

Well, for me, I might or might not meter that white as zone 7. It depends on the rest of the scene. If the rest of the scene is made of zones 5 through 9, then metering a zone 7 white as zone 7 could blow out zone 8 and 9 objects. So that's one situation where I would meter the zone 7 (or even zone 8) as zone 5 (for a digital camera). Then I would bring up the exposure in post.
