    IMHO, it is perhaps the best ambient light meter ever made. Mine from the '50s still works perfectly (though back then it was called the Brockway Norwood Director made in Japan by Sekonic). They are a steal at under $200 brand new, and their prices on the used market are ridiculously low as well. It should be on the required list for any beginning photographer, IMHO, right alongside a fully manual camera and a normal lens. This meter will improve results immeasurably for anyone used to making their exposures using a directly-read in-camera reflected light meter. They are well built and slip right into your pocket as well. The most important and useful accessory IMO is a set of high slides, especially the direct reading slide. If only they made the exact same thing as a flash meter as well!

    Love mine. I've had it for 25+ years and recently had it CLA'd just for grins. It is small, easy to use and accurate. What more could you want? It's an excellent meter for use with my Rollei TLR's.
