Re: Sunny 16 rule ... not optimal at 16?

I remember my father telling us all to stay still, while he wandered around with his light meter, took notes, made calculations, and then minutes later took the shoot.  All this was because the camera did not have a light meter built in.  Also you could not see the results until much later, so you had to exercise care.  Using the built in meter, with histogram if you need to, is the way to go.  Know your camera and compensate when you need to.
