    I have a Pentax Digital that I had Zone Vi modified. Well worth it. Dont have to use filter factors anymore. I meter through the filter works fine. WHere could you have a meter modified that way now? Thought that was long gone

    @Malibucompany: I saw someone is offering in e-bay for EUR 250. I do not know whether this price is okay or not.

    Holga 120GFN: Amazingly simple yet it produces outstanding negatives to print.

    If I have time to use a tripod, whether with my 35mm, medium format or 4x5, I almost always use my spotmeter or, in the case of the Yashica MF, the 7.5 degree attachment to my Luna Pro and that only because I HAVE it in the case with the Yashicamat and don't have my spotmeter.

    Opinions differ on the Zone VI mod. I don't have one and haven't used one. It may be worthwhile, I have no position on that yet, but it certainly is not necessary.

    I have two zone VI modified Pentax spot meters that I purchased that way a number of years ago. Whither or not you want the modification Ralph's zone diagram printed and attached to the meter is a terrific time saver and makes metering easier. My meters came with a similar piece attached.
