    Hi
    I'm looking for an older Weston or Sekonic light meter w/ case. Must be in good working condition (no bad cells). Also looking for a shutter cable release for manual cameras, and a shutter release for a Nikon F2. I need a 49mm lens cap for a Pentax lens, 2 55mm lens caps, 1 Nikon lens cap for 52mm lens, and 1 67mm lens cap for Nikon.
    Thanks alot 2bits

    Hi there, as mentioned in my PM I checked and I have a Weston Master II Model 715 Exposure Meter with leather case in very good working and cosmetic condition.
    I also have printed instructions (copy of the original manual). I think I can let it go for $25 plus shipping. Not sure about trades, I have too much stuff sitting around anyway. Send me a PM is you are interested. Cheers,
    Mihai C.

    Check with Quality Light Metric in Hollywood as he reconditions the Westons and other selenium meters and as most of the older Weston seleniums need either a new cell or at least calibration by now, either pick up one and have him reondition it or see if he has any for sale. I remember years ago he was buying nonworking ones in good physical condition and rebuilding and offering them and pricing was very decent. I have a pair of IIS but, neither are accurate though still read so calibration probably is all that is needed. When working, they are a great meter for average lighting. I replaced mine with the Weston Ranger that was Weston's last meter and a only none selenium cell meter. A great alternative to the older meters and why I never bothered to have my IIs worked on.

    BrianL,
    I just ordered a Sekonic L-V6 redone by Quality Light Metric this year. So we'll see how it goes.
