    Here is a plug for the Luna Pro. SUper simple.

    Yes, I have one of those as well. Great for the studio and/or my personal work but I'm looking for a simpler model that my son can get along with and that won't be a big deal to loose, break, etc.

    The above suggestions for the various Gossen models have been great - thanks!

    I have a Minolta Auto-Spot II with a case if you're interested. I've been holding on to it for who knows how long as a backup meter, but I really don't see myself using it. Its of course analog, with the dial in the viewfinder. Gives the same exposures as my new digital spot meter.

    I also have a sekonic L358. I'm wondering if anyone can tell me weather the dome should be in or out when I am shooting landscapes with my Bronica.
    Thanks

    The Sekonic USA site seems to be down right now (maybe for maintainance?) but I do remember there being a very helpful Q&A forum there. Also, and I'm not trying to be a smart ass here, but have you read your manual?

    Nancy,

    it´s the same for most lightmeters:

    for incident metering the dome should be "in", for spot or reflective readings you remove it.

    It depends on your style and your experience - I usually resort to incident metering in most cases.
    Tschüss,

    What's a manual? LOL
    I have read it, but not for quite a while. I usually shoot people, so I have the dome out. I'll pick it up and refresh my memory. Thanks!

    Digidurst,
    Congrats! The Mamiya C330f is the best of the bunch (IMO). I reckon a Gossen Profisix would suit you admirably. They're not made anymore so I reckon you should be able to get one fairly cheap. They are extremely reliable, durable and easy to use (a bit like your Mamiya). I've been using a profisix for 20 years and it's seen a lot of action. You can buy lots of different attachments to turn it into spotmeter, flashmeter, colour temp. meter etc. It has an incident metering diffuser built-in and if that wasn't enough, the later models incorporate a zone system numeral scale, should you wish to go down that road. Regards, BLIGHTY
