HOW DO I SHOOT iso 0.8?
If you are not using a hand-held light meter, dial iso 25 into your camera's light meter. Once you expose for iso 25, open up your lens 5 f-stops (or lower shutter speed) for iso 0.8.
Notes from FPP's Michael Raso - "When shooting such (an incredible!) low asa, I shoot in daylight with my lens fully open at about 1/10th or 1/15th sec. I highly recommend the Gossen Luna Pro F light meter. It dials down to iso 0.8."
How to Process? Standard developers will work fine. Michael's image was processed in Kodak D76 > 68 degrees > 6 minutes.
FPP pal Alex Luyckx uses Kodak Xtol (1+1) 14:00 @ 20C.
