Excellent tutorial, but I do have one quibble:
Focal-Plane shutters in our OMs limit us to nearly exlusively
using a Shutter Speed of 1/60. So scratch one "user-selectable"
setting off our list. 1/60 is a fixed, known quantity. We have
our start point.
We go indoors and the meter now indicates that
my proper exposure is 1/60 and F1.4.
1/60 and F1.4. Oops, Our lens only goes down to 2.8. Now what?
Let's look at our list of controls. Assuming we aren't using a
flash yet, my only choice is to increase film speed.
While focal plane synch limits the *fastest* shutter speed
to 1/60, you can certainly use a slower shutter speed if you
want to. At the extreme, that's how you combine a
flash-exposed subject underneath a six-hour star trail
exposure. So if you really want to stick with your slow
film, you can do it with a slower shutter speed.
