    I typically rate mine at 125 in camera, meter under the chin at the same ISO, bulb in, face the meter down 45 degrees. That would effectively give me about 1.5 stops.

    I was about to ask if you'd ever tried Precision, but then I figured you must have since it's in Austin. I have only sent them film once, but I thought they did a very nice job. It's a bit discouraging to hear about the hit-or-miss quality because of staff turnover.

    Its only been the past 2 years or so. Before then, I "knew" the staff there, had great service, quick turn around, always had the right order.... now not so much. The past two times ive been, things have been ok. So hopefully they finally have some people there who know what they are doing.

    Each of us meter so differently so hopefully my method works for you! :)

    So, I got a bunch of photos back from @webestang64 and that included a test roll of 620 that I shot through an old Kodak folder that I had completely forgotten about. There were blank frames, so clearly the camera needs a bit of work, but the shots that did come out made me want to shoot more 6x9.

    There was also this one, which isn't particularly exciting (it was a test roll, after all) but it shows how well the lens and a 6x9 frame can capture tones and detail in a more high-contrast scene.

    Nikon FM, 50mm AIS, TriX pushed 1600, HC110. The store had a nice Leica IIIF red dial with a 5cm f/2 lens, pristine body condition, lens looked like it had some stuff going on inside, and the price was outrageous, like $1950.... Anyway, liked the line, shadows, and contrast of the scene.

    I look at this one and see more than a test shot. And now I want to use my Foldex 6x9.
