When I look at my old film I am surprised at how good the low ASA results were just using that paper exposure guide that was included in the film box... even more so when shooting Kodachrome without a meter...

The [Honeywell] Pentax model 3/21 spot meter came out in circa 1961 and that paper guide started to disappear... flash guide number and we were playing in a different ballpark.

Sometimes it depended on intuition and a bit of good fortune
