(The point I'm trying to impart here will be that my camera meters are likely as accurate as they agree with one another.)
-Each time I took a reading with a camera I also took a reading with a hand held meter, usually my Gossen Digisix. (I have confirmed the accuracy of this meter with a
friends meters as well as others I own.)
-The reading from my handheld meter is consistently higher, by 1 stop, to the readings I get from the meters in my cameras.
My feeling is the reading from the same grey card should be identical for my handheld or camera meters. But then....I don't know!
