    I purchased a Luna-Pro SBC with case and postage for $53.00 USD in November. From the looks of it, I'm not sure it was ever used. That is a significantly better option then my older Luna-Pro and it's PX625 battery requirement. Now I can save my stash of PX625s for my M5 bodies. The swinging needle of the Luna-Pro SBC is much easier for this old geezer to use than the LEDs of the later models. Watching the needle swing from under to overexposure is what I'm used to. Works for me.

    I guess this is the U.S. model. I remember wanting one when they were new, but could never afford one.

    Although I have a Luna-Pro SBC and love it, I still have my old Luna-Pro & Lunasix maters. I sent the older meters out to Quality Metric in California and had them gone over and calibrated. They came back working like new, calibrated to use 625 alkalines, and are right on the money with both my modern needle model and the +/- LED model Gossens.

    Um, yeah! It is, as they say, a trip how far out the the thing is calibrated.

    Does it do flash?

    Measuring flash

    Hi! Does anybody knows if the Luna-Pro F (Lunasix F), meters flash even with the studio attach, the Luna-Sphere, so called Profi-Lux (what a mess with different markets and names for the same no?), attached? Thanks!

    I have a Minolta Auto Meter IV for flash and spot use. However, since I almost never use flash, the Auto Meter is probably redundant. I should think about selling it.

    Miguel,

    The Lunasix-F does NOT accept accessories which have got electrical plugs, such as the flash attachments.


    The Profisix can take the following flash-metering attachments:
    -) Profi-flash
    -) Profi-flash 2 (an upgraded version of the former)
    -) Profi-select TTL.

    As Ian said, with an attachment, which I've never seen, even working in the shops where the meters were sold. It's called the Profi-Flash and plugs into the front of the meter. Page 39 of these instructions: http://www.gossen-photo.de/pdf/ba_profisix_e.pdf I don't know if the flash attachment had another name in the North American market. The instructions above have a photo.

    I have the ProfiSix with the Profi-flash for about 29 years now and it works great.
    The Minolta Flashmeter IV is a bit lighter and more compact than the ProfiSix, but it has a miniature-probe that you can use for table-top.

    For fast work the Profi is better because you don't have to interpretet the reading as with the digital Minolta.
    Graet stuff and highly recomended.
