    In need of light meter. My Sekonic L-328 just bit the dust.

    Does anyone have a spare, as in extremely cheap, light meter? I'm shooting with a first generation Mamiyaflex. I've used my best judgement for metering during the past couple of days. I've yet to develop the shots to see how accurate they are. That'll happen tonight when I get back home. The wife and I are visiting her parents, showing off our newborn. It's our first. She's extremely cute. Anyways, I'd like to protect myself in situations like this. I suppose during our recent move the light meter decided it was time to go. The L-328 was the perfect meter for me. I paid $8 for it at a thrift store. Maybe that's why I only got a few months of use out of it. So, if you have something just laying around, I would definitely put it to good use. Thanks so much.

    If you're an Iphone user you can get an app for FREE.

    There are others too. I've heard there's one for Android devices too.

    I have a Gossen Luna-Pro F with a 15/7.5 attachment. I like it a whole lot.

    That said, I use a Digisix and Luna Pro Digital. Prefer both over a l-208 I used to have.

    PS ... I won this...

    L-758DR DigitalMaster

    http://www.sekonic.com/products/l-758dr/overview.aspx

    Since you already have a Sekonic it would be an easy transition, has both a spot and incident. If you don't use strobes, then you can get the L-758D which is less money.

    you can find them for a lot less on ebay, a lot of people seem to buy them new, use them a few times, never really take advantage of them because they aren't real photographers or just use their digitals to chince, and end up selling them for about $300 which is what I got mine for I believe.

    Anyway good luck!

    If money is the main issue, then get one of those light meter apps or just get the sekonic L208 then

    The light meter app is great if you're in a pinch. I used a Dejur Dual Professional for a long time and recently got a Gossen Digipro F. Both great meters, very accurate.
