    How does a person order a pocket spot? I didn't really see an explaination of the order process. I did see where they suggest not using the email, that it is better to call or send a snail mail. But this looks like something that I might want to get if it isn't too expensive. Looks like it would go nicely with my Digisix incident meter (which is definitely pocket sized).

    At Ari's suggestion i picked one of these up. With the shoe attachment it fits nicely on the top of my Fuji rangefinder. Remove it and it's small size and light weight make it ideal for carrying on a lanyard or in your pocket. All for less than $100 US.

    Looks like the PocketSpot sells for around $450.00USD so out of my range right now.

    Sekonic L-228 and L-318B

    The L-228 is a compact Zoom meter which
    narrows to 8 degrees. Very accurate and of
    older some metallic construction. Fine leather
    case which fits a pant pocket easily. Now days
    takes zinc-air batteries.

    The L-318B is more current. All digital and
    a more narrow metered view.

    I've steered clear of the one degree spots.
    I believe narrow area meter averaging
    gives a truer reading. Dan

    That is a peculiar philosophy. A very small spot allows me to be very precise in my exposure calculations. The bigger the spot, the less precise. If you get more accurate averaging from bigger spots then it is because you are miscaculating your exposures. Not because a bigger spot is more accurate. No offense.

    More accurate because of miscalculation.
    As long as I miscalculate consistently I'm
    OK. There are those this thread who
    swear by much larger "spots" than
    the 8 degree Sekonic L-228. Dan

    A 1 degree spot is just this - a narrow area meter averaging the narrow area. Steer clear of it...

    Then why do you need a wider area meter? Just miscalculate consistently the narrow spot meter...
