Regardless of the many variables encountered in exposure and processing, the Cameraman's 12-Step Guide helps produce line negatives of consistent quality, density and line fidelity. After development it tells upon inspection whether line negatives are up to a given standard, and if not, how much correction should be made.

Screening the guide with halftones lets the user evaluate highlight, mid-tone, and shadow dots from discreet values of gray, and indicates what adjustments to make to get the detail desired. Two crosshatch patterns (50 and 250-line) serve as a check for accurate focus and resolution.
