    Uhm for us as photographer an eye ball is worth a lot so there isn't a spot meter that can cost any where near an eye ball. I do have a couple of the old Minolta spot meter 9. They are 9 degree spotmeter. Works quite well and I got them for like $5.

    "Marc, are you saying you are actually using a RZ for landscape? Like, hiking with the kit?"

    Sure, Medium and Large format kits. One or the other, not both at once. Not on my back.
    Not so far on foot, I'm getting older and a bit crippled. I 4-wheel in as far as I can go.
    I have camera mounts on the roll bar of my truck. Originally the mounts were for off road lights.

    I recently moved so I went thru all the boxes to look for the meters. I couldn't find them. You can still buy them on Ebay but if this is your first spot meter I would not recommend it. Your first spot meter should be a good one.

    If you look at the sun with them, just about any spotmeter will cost you an eyeball.

    So what would it read pointing at the sun? Or what's the luminance of the sun?

    Well my SEI photometer may be able to measure it. It has a 3.02 ND and the scale covers 1.0 so at top of scale there would be 4.0 between my eye and the sun...

    Hey you can't trick me that easily.

    searching online I found that the sun has a luminance of 1.6 x10^9 cd/m^2. So it should read about EV 33.4 for ISO 100.
