    I've been using a Sekonic L-508 for my street shooting for the past five years. I use the incident reading and usually set my exposure at half the box speed. I like the results I get. If you do your own developing and printing, this is the way to go imho.

    I dont have it in my hand right now, so I wont give you dimensions, but it fits in a pocket very well. At least, it fits in my pockets. I do tend to wear loose fitting shorts and pants with decent sized pockets (big enough for my hands to move around freely).

    Mine came with a neckband, as well. Actually, the neckband is a bit of a hassle becuase the meter hangs all the way down to my waist. I find that rather annoying, so I keep it in my pocket.

    Just be careful when it's in your pocket. It has one of those white domes for incident readings. I've never done it, but I guess it could be easy to bump in to something and crack or break it. That could be a problem with any incident meter, though. I've never heard of that happening to anyone, but I'm good at doing stupid shit like that, so I'll end up doing that one day probably

    I believe that's the meter we used where I used to go to school. Hard to go wrong with a Sekonic of any model
