I must say it was a really, really, dark pretty shade of red but when it came back into range it's pretty easy to determine the value. I also like to read them outside or held up to a window with the chart because the lighting indoors seems to exaggerate the test results (In my case for the worse). I also confirmed the readings with three LFS in my area so I know the way I'm reading the tests is good for me.
Thank you ... I'll check out the TetraTest kit next time I'm at my LFS.

Not a problem, when they start going with their little mouths they can really mess up your head.

Thanks TC. I tried my point and shoot Sony to see if I could get better shots close up and you know what My Sony really stinks, back into the case it goes. I'm going to start looking for a macro for the D70.
