Shooting at asa 50 is a challenge with any camera as the speed is 1/30 sec with f8 settings. . . old fut shake does not help ! In mixed, average light levels (above shot) this FN-61 handles very well to my Zone System brain. When an extreme range is exposed, the hi-lites tend to be blocked. Compare this picture to the one above the Coconut scene. Different films and very different results. I will be able to solve these "problems" with some simple increased exposure (asa 32) and cutting back on my developing about 2 minutes.
