Yeah but that part didn't say grain diameter or photographic speed.
Plus, I'm asking your experience, not that of Glafkidès. By the way,
which edition and section was that paragraph taken from? (I have the
book somewhere.)

You can "measure" lux by using a reasonable photographic light meter.

Let me know when you get ASA 50. (Frankly I would be surprised if that
method produced ASA 5.)
