    This is for personal work right now, not a paid gig at this point but that may change if it works well.

    Your point is well taken.

    I was actually thinking of addressing this concern with Ilford XP2, practice, and reasonable guesses.

    Other thoughts about this are welcome.

    Since you seem to have some F-mount lenses already I guess a Nikon rangefinder would be out of the question.
    Those who know, shoot film

    Probably true for now but that's on the dream list for the future.

    I agree on the F2 vote, and if it's not in pristine condition, these are generally very inexpensive. A Weston Master V meter can be very accurate if the cells are fresh, and of course has no battery.

    Get a selenium cell light meter - no battery required. I have a Weston Master IV and it reads pretty close compared to the various built-in centre-weighted TTL meters in my SLRs.

    F, F2, FM3A, FM10, or any of the Nikkormats.

    Good morning;

    WilsonNeal and Stan160 both have come up with the main points I wanted to make about the mechanical Nikons and the Weston or other selenium cell light meters. The only thing I can add now is to voice the implied part of the recommendation for one of the older mechanical Nikon cameras (F, F2, et cetera), and to use only the standard pentaprism, not one of the light measuring types such as the T, FTn, DP1, DP12, or other. All of those also required a battery for operation. Of course, if you already have one of those with the camera, just leave out the battery, and you will have met the requirement.

    Of course, there might be the hassle of a knowledgeable security type who recognizes that there should be a battery in the Photomic, and you may need to take it off, unscrew the cover, and show him that there is no battery in it.

    What do they say along the pipeline about the modern electronic wrist watches?
    Enjoy;

    When they ask you; "How many Mega Pixels you got in your camera?"
    just tell them; "I use activated silver bromide crystals tor my image storage media."

    Different companies and areas have differing rules, where I work everything has to be intrinsically safe "class 1 div 2".

    No watches.
