That was NOT me! But I know some people like that too.

My main meter is the Minolta Spotmeter F. I have found it to be as acurate as I need for most purposes. I still use the old Gossen Luna Pro, like yesterday when photographing a bird nest with my Contarex and color print film. I use the spot meter for practically all b&w "zone system" work, which dominates most of my present efforts.

My spot meter is a little flucky in the flash meter mode. Sometimes several attempts are required before I am satisfied that I have proper readings. Maybe someone could help diagnose my technique?
