At FREESTYLE, I found the Stouffer Gray Scale 21 step, model 19721. Is this the Stepwedge everybody has been referring to recently. My curiosity is piqued. I am am familiar with the Kodak circular step wedge and have used it to determine exposure and contrast when printing. What advantage does the Stouffer step wedge give me? I'm new to this, so any information would be very helpful.

Where else in the US can I get a Stouffer; B&H doesn't seem to have one :(


See the Stouffer web site at:
For descriptions and explanations. The Kodak Projection Print Scale is a sort of elementary step wedge. I've found that they are not very consistent in density although enough so for their intended purpose. Note that Stouffer makes both transmission and reflection type tablets.
