    I'd look for a Leningrad 4, small light and surprisingly accurate and more importantly dirt cheap.

    I have a sekonic l-558r I am willing to part with. Way more meter than your looking for though. I could do cash + print(s) or always looking for Nikon or 8x10 stuff. Film or holders. Lg back pack etc... pm if interested. I just picked it up and put a battery in it but I have not tested it against my 508 that I have had forever.

    A Gossen Luna Six or Luna Pro can often be had for about 80 bucks. A very fine meter, especially for night photography. It has one of the most, if not THE most, light sensitive light cell of any meter. It's a great meter, the only one I use, except for the attachment meter on my rangefinder.

    No, not in my opinion; it is not that one is flat out better than the other, both can do excelent work.

    The reality is that all either does is provide reference points. We have to decide what to do with the readings.

    Was out with the dogs this evening just after sunset and decided to shoot my delta 400 at 1000 just because I wanted to place my tones more to match the scene. I wanted the shots to look like the dogs were playing after sunset, not like they were playing at noon. I got the benefit of a quicker shutter too.

    You can do this really well with either type of meter.

    My advice for Shawn is to continue the quest for an incident meter, if for nothing else than to see how the other half lives, so to speak.

    That's definitely a part of it. I've been trying to guess my exposure before metering for years (with the view camera / mf camera) and am getting pretty good at it... A quick incident reading when I'm a little uncertain and I will be fairly confident. Plus, I'm a big advocate mixing things up, as you suggest. =)

    Still looking for bargain incident light meter. Can pay via USPS MO or am willing to barter for one of my prints if you fancy them.
