Both replies make sense and the work around looks practical.

I would have thought that using a colour head might effect the
sensitivity range on a digital camera sensor  but obviously this has
been balanced out to overcome the problem. And in referring Pauls reply
the bracketing has been done to overcome the S/N ratio (I may be wrong here)

Its obvious I need a Digital camera with a histogram output.  I can set
  a camera up on a Bowens slide copier. Maybe Ill go buy a D100 next
week and report back on the results.

Thanks once again.
