Have used this since the original Norwood "Director in 1956, Welcomed Seconic's version especially as it incorporated pointer lock. My wife has two—1996, and a new one purchased two years ago. I have since moved to a Gossen Digipro, but strongly recommend the Norwood as the ultimate backup ( needing no battery)

For Street work, it will serve you especially well; giving the ability to quickly "sniff the light"— to thius end, you might consider acquiring a set of the direct reading slides; with which you can just read f stops directly from the dial.

Unless you are doing Zone System, you will get into far less trouble with an incident meter.
