    San Francisco APUGers, I need to borrow something...

    Hello. I sent my light meter to be properly calibrated and I need to borrow one (reflective light meter) for a class I'm starting next week. Can someone help me out? I'll leave a deposit if necessary. Post back here or email me at macandal yahoo com. Thanks.

    rorye, I would love take you up on your offer. Like I said, I can leave a deposit with you. The class lasts for 6 weeks (June 12 to July 17). What area of San Francisco do you live in?

    Adolph Gassers might be able to rent you one and cut you a deal for a long term rental.

    Okay APUGers, the meter I was going to borrow has gone AWOL. I still need to borrow one. Can someone hook me up? Like I said, I can give you a deposit. Thanks.

    Gassers has a Sekonic L-508 they rent for $15 per weekend or $45 per week. Rent that one for your first week and then ask around the class. Likely someone will have something to lend you. Otherwise buy a used one from Gassers or ebay and re-sell after. Used good ones hold their value well. At least in the short term. I'd lend you mine but I'm shooting in NY in a couple weeks and then going to the Sierras right after that and am using it both times.

    Don't have a spare meter so sorry I can't help. Just for future reference, I send my meter to Quality Light Metric down on Hollywood and had it back in less than a week and in perfect working order.

    Roger, I've got the meter to spare but there's logistics issues, you heading down this way in the next few days?
