It looks great, thanks. Alas, it works only on Macs... .

comment What happens if I press the film rewind button early?
+1 That's a feature of all manual cameras I have ever used: pressing the rewind button disengages the film advance mechanism, so pulling the lever only resets the shutter, setting you up for a double exposure. At the end of a full pull, the rewind button should re-engage. Thus, after one pull (where you will feel no film tension) you should shoot a dark image (lens cap on, high shutter speed, high f-stop) to avoid a double exposure and then advance the film again (feeling the tension as the film is moved) for the next shot.

comment Is there a linear relationship between shutter speed and speed of subject to freeze motion?
Thanks, @Michael, for expanding on the meaning of personal standards of sharpness. Because many (most?) photographs are rarely framed exactly right, they need cropping, so do not forget to take that into account. (I would love to have your 6000x4000 monitor, by the way. But my collection of monitors is such that there often is a 1:1 relationship between pixels in the cropped area and pixels on the monitors, so the one-pixel-of-blur standard is a meaningful, if somewhat stringent, reference for me.)
