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.
Which one is dead?
And the point of this thread is?
I guess Daniel felt the need to talk about his wonderful light meters. :-)
