Andy's Handy Exposure Calculator
Recommended tools: a sharpcraft knife and a metal ruler.
First cut out the window andscore the folds - it's easier todo this before you've cut theparts out from the page. Theback of your knife blade ishandy for scoring the folds.Cut out the two parts of theexposure calculator. Glue thetab then fold and assemblethe main part. When the glueis dry, slip the sliding scaleinside the main part.The sliding scale on this pagehas its aperture scalegraduated in 1/3 f-stops. If you prefer half f-stopgraduations, use thealternative scale on the nextpage.Establish the brightness (EV) of your subject, using either yourhand-held light meter or thedescriptions on the front andback of the calculator. (Notethat the descriptions are only aguideline - if you're workingfrom them you may wish tobracket your exposures.)Slide the sliding scale so thatthe ISO value of your film linesup with the appropriate EVvalue. Then you can read off aperture/shutter speedcombinations from the lowerpair of scales.
