    Favourite design for a lightmeter

    If you were asked to suggest your favourite design for a lightmeter, what would it be? I would suggest the Gossen Sixtry -

    Hmm, an interesting suggestion but nowhere near as interesting as your reasons for nominating the Sixtry. Do tell, at length if you please. We could all learn something.

    Well, you have two kinds of design

    -) the kind of scale/kind of reading

    -) the outer form/kind of arrangement of actuators


    Concerning the first issue I prefer the zero-adjust or placing-the-result system like in the Gossen Profisix (and others)

    I like the design and it's functions.

    And it looks like it also gives a close shave. I'd say the Luna Pro.

    So easy to use - just does the job in many situations.

    Oh, don't be so coy. Tell us about the design and the functions and why you like them. Let's share some knowledge around.

    I like the roller blind cover for incident readings and the side variations for light spectrum analysis, also the ergonomic shape and size for the way it fits in your hand.

    First you must specify a design for what type of light meter? Incident, spot, wide angle reflective, continuous light, flash or combination of them??
