BESSA-L


The extreme wide angle, 12mm Heliar is a difficult lens to work with.  Ansel Adams would have had to rework his damn Zone System had he
used such a lens. 



The exposure system in the BESSA-L does the best it can, I guess. But there's no way to average numbers like 3000, 1200, 250, 78.3 and 14.
Yes, the average is 908.46 but that doesn't help when you're trying to spread that number over a 35mm  film frame.

Your eye doesn't see like film. Your brain isn't a film processor concerned with silver density.

I discard many of my BESSA-L/Heliar photos. The ones I keep make me keep the camera.
