    Yep, already have a grey card just in case but it's so much easier using incident metering which allows me to focus more on composing the shot instead of worrying about metering. Thankfully Portra has very nice latitude.

    I just did a test with my grey card and the Gossen would underexpose by about half a stop using reflective vs incident, but that may just be my grey card!

    Just a little update:

    THE DOME FOR THE LUNA STAR F2 WILL FIT THE GOSSEN DIGIPRO F.

    I ordered the dome from B&H and it came in the other day. Snapped onto my Digipro and everything seems to be working fine. Just thought I would update the thread in cas anyone in the future has the same problem

    If you look on the Gossen web site at the small parts section and fill in the request form with what you want they will send you one.

    Does anyone know where I can get a replacement dome? I tried contacting Gossen but have not recieved anything from them
    You need to get them on the phone;They hardly ever answer emails

    If you read the instructions that Kodak published with their gray cards, and who ever does that, you'd see that they say to read off the gray card and "open up one half stop". So it sounds like your meter is spot on.

    Meters, generally are not calibrated to 18%. There really is no "industry" standard as we are lead to believe. That's why Ansel Adams and Fred Archer developed the zone system.
