I'm wondering about reflective metering using NON-SPOT meters. I've read many threads on this topic but it still doesn't make sense to me, especially for my particular application. I'd like to know more. Please - I know this is a controversial topic to some. Please simply state how you do it and why, not argue or disagree with others. I (we) already know people don't agree. Here is my question/concern: I have a Sekonic light meter 758DR which I mostly use incident and occasionally spot. This meter can do incident and 1 degree SPOT. When I'm feeling lazy, I just pick what I want it to be zone V and meter THAT using spot. Most times, I use it incident if I can get to the subject. Now, I want a smaller meter, so I'm looking at Sekonic 308 which features incident and NON SPOT reflective. When metering NON-SPOT reflective, I am aware the meter has certain degree of "field of view" and meters that area. If it has an unusually bright spot or dark spot, it'll all be averaged. Also, the field of view of the meter does not usually match that of the lens, meaning two are looking at different area. Now, how is this accurate?? (or is it not supposed to be precise?) It is a particular concern to me at this point because I am going to get a panoramic cameras and I know they will be looking at vastly different area than the meter. I am also aware, the meter reading it just a suggestion - we, the photographers, are supposed to interpret it and set the lens appropriately. What I am looking for is, how is this PRACTICALLY done. I am fairly aware of the technicalities of each metering method, so please assume that when replying. Thank you very mucho.
