Has anyone else got one of these cult meters? Do you use it much? What do you see as its strengths and weaknesses? I reviewed it a while back at


This thread was prompted by an exchange with Christopher Crawford about spot meters. Like many (including me, until I got one) he'd always wanted one. Who else feels the same way?

Think I'll stick with my Minolta spotmeter. A little faster to use, I would think! :)

Oh, I don't know. Only about ten times to a hundred times quicker...

Now using a Pentax digital spot meter (1-degree spot) with medium format. Pretty happy with that so far, although my technique probably breaks the rules. I tend to meter the highlights then set the exposure to avoid blowing out the highlights - I don't worry too much about the shadows.
