    Minolta lightmeters gone badly

    For eight last years I used minolta meters

    - Flash meter V, paid $900 Canadian
    used as my reference meter to which I calibrated all my meters, used to figure out film speed,... used in studio and field if I did not need spotmeter

    - Spot meter F, paid $1300 Canadian
    for around 98% of all my shuts I used this meter

    Now FlashMeterV is in darkroom for enlarging only, if I need it.
    SpotMeterF I use only for painting to figure out value of color when I need it
    They both are really excellent meters. Practically they retired.

    Why? I got Gossen StarLite to go with me further up to end of my life. Old friends are like old wine... Well that is life.
    Amen

    I guess Daniel felt the need to talk about his wonderful light meters. :-)
