It cannot be used as a permanent substitute for daily processor sensitometry.
The first five chapters describe film processing and the processing environment, focusing on the darkroom, film manufacturing, sensitometry, the processor and film chemistry.

With controlled development, we can use sensitometry to optimize exposures, set up or change techniques, troubleshoot and control quality.
