the combination of settings which resulted in the correct exposure in this

well explained and very helpful example ! Well done !

Danial Daneshmand says:

Well explained , even though i did know about third of stop system and i
was using it all this time with 3 clicks for a stop , i never realized i
was doing so.

Paul Humphries says:

Great demonstration Mark, really simplified, thank you!

Your video is the bomb. This is the first time I have seen or heard a
simple, concise explanation of stops that made perfect sense. knowing the
dials increment at 1/3 stop each click is greatness. Brilliant. Thank you.
