reading a densitometric test

Recommended Posts

haven't dealt  with these numbers in several years now, and really forgot how to read them. 

I only know it seems way off, but could someone remind me how to read this stuff? 
this is what I got from the lab reading of our gray card: 

0.27 0.60 0.99 is the reading in the perf area.
Thnaks all.

Those are the log densities in red, green and blue. As Dirk says, we don't know the stock, but here's a curve for Vision 500t (page 2)


Your D-mins are a little higher than that so presumably you have some extra fogging.
