Looking for Zone-System Tutorials..

Hello,

I'm looking for material regarding the Zone-System but in relation to Digital Photography. (I use an old Nikon D70s and my daughter a Nikon D40, both of us are willing to learn this exposure techniques).

Do you have/know a good tutorial on this topic that you can share?

Till now, I usually use Matrix Metering which is not the best choice (as far I know), therefore I want to learn how to improve my skills using a better technique.

I'm relatively new to this site.. therefore this post may not be in the correct place. (if yes, sorry for wasting your bandwidth)

Thanks in advance.

google "the practical zone system for film and digital photography" It's 300 pages and you can download it as a pdf from amazon I think.
