My research so far seems to direct me to the Sekonic Flashmate l-308s and the minolta Auto Meter IVF (+ the spot metering attachment).

I do like the idea of being able to spot meter, the flashmate however is perhaps simpler and quicker (but less accurate?), well at any rate this is the budget I am in so I'm wondering if you can tell me if I'm on the right track here?

The main problem is the budget, these would probably be second hand. Also I'm not really sure I can properly tell one model from another so I would be grateful for any assistance/ further suggestions.

Thanks for your help,

I hope you are aware that requests of this type could be easilyreplaced by the question:what meter do you own?,leading toidentical replies of limited value
