    The free iphone meter works well enough for my needs.

    Save the money for a camera, glass and FILM and darkroom chems/supplies (bw and color if you do color)!!

    Below are some reviews of the iphone meter, I bet there are similar on Android...

    You can get a gossen Luna Pro for around 20.00 with patience on ePay but I actually prefer the selenium Gossen Pilot.
    The Pilot is small and needs no batteries. The Luna Pro takes older mercury batterie so you'd need to adapt hearing aid batteries.

    I have both and the Luna Pro is better for real low light.

    btw: welcome from a fellow Freestater

    Does this look like a good deal? Glad to see people from around my area on here. I've been meaning to go take some shots at the new mlk monument. I've never actually used an external light meter.

    The Super Pilot is bigger than the first Pilot.
    There also is a Pilot 2 but idk too much about specifics on that one.
    I think the Super Pilot may be Cadmium Sulfide & may take modern batteries also but dont hold me to that.

    Selenium is older tech and not as sensitive in low light.
    Cadmium Sulfide (CdS) is older tech also.
    Newest meters use a silicon diode technology but can be pricey.

    That meter you linked isn't a deal but it's not a rip either if it works properly.

    If you are going to go with the offer from jnanian make sure you download a manual and have a good read first, essentially a simple camera with a couple of quirks you want to be aware of.

    He's got it on lock craig . I'm well aware of what to watch out for with this camera. I've been obsessively reading up on them, and fsu cameras in general.

    great, you guys are organised.

    Obsessively reading very easily becomes obsessively buying.
    enjoy it

    Hi-Matic G wouldn't fit your requirements (not a RF and I'm not sure about manual controls). Also beware of the special batteries that it requires. Buying an adapter (or making one yourself) will be needed before you can use it.
