    Patrick, I have a Sekonic L508 and I love it maybe as much as Jorge loves his. A tear comes to my eye whenever I loan it to a friend, for fear of what might happen to my baby. Seriously this thing is the do it all meter and has been very reliable. I've also used a Gossen Luna Star and a Minolta spotmeter, the sekonic IMO takes the cake. Good luck

    You wont find anything in the view camera article that is not better explained in the instruction manual. So read the manual, it is very helpful.

    We wrote the article in View Camera because people were coming to ur workshops not knowing how to operate the meter even after going through the manual. Having another resource never hurts.

    Without an indication of the budget you're on, I love my Gossen Starlight meter and would recommend it to anyone. Have a look into one as another option on top of the Minolta, Pentax and Sekonics.

    Failure is NOT an option! It comes bundled with your software ....

    I use a Polaris with a 5 spot attachment, as BMAC, said pretty much a joke, but the meter is good and easy to use. Have not checked prices, but at the time it was $100 USD less than the Minolta, so I bought it. The reason, I was a putts and sold my old analog Pentax spot meter - wish I had it back....

    The pentax spot meter (I have the digital) takes some beating and is of course simple, ergonomically perfect and has no features I do not need. It also has superb build quality. Perfect for field use if that is the application.

    The Adorama digital spot meter is very simple, reliable, and rugged. It costs significantly less than the Pentax meters (~469$ pentax vs. ~249 adororama). Not to mention that the batteries used in the adorama are much cheaper and easier to find. I have no reservations recommending the adorama digital spot meter. good luck.

    I use the Minolta and it is a great meter, I bought the booster2 attachment for it and now I can take direct readings off the ground glass of my view camera. It is a nice feature for those times when you wish you had TTL metering for the view camera.

    I'll stick with my old Luna Pro....still works perfect. I refuse to spend several hundred dollars on a light meter.

    The Minolta. Would not trade it. Very accurate.
