2 Sekonic L398
Weston Ranger 9
Weston Master V
Pentax digital 1 Degree spot
Gossen Luna Pro

Minolta IV
Weston Ranger 9
Pentax 1 degree digital
You're almost as bad as I am with collecting light meters!

Gossen Luna Pro S
Gossen Luna Pro SBC
Gossen Ultra-Pro (three of them!)
Gossen Sixticolor
Pentax Zone VI Modified Spotmeter V
Minolta Flash Meter II
Minolta Flash Meter IV
Minolta Auto Meter IIIF
Minolta Color Meter IIIF
Sekonic L-758DR
Sekonic C500 Color Meter
Sekonic C700 Color Meter
Spectra Combi II (Two of them!)
Weston Master II
Weston Master V

Those are just the ones that work right. I have a few others that don't.

What do I actually use? For BW film, I use the Zone VI Pentax meter.

For color, which is all digital, I use the Sekonic L758DR, which I calibrated to my camera. I also use the Sekonic C700, which is an incredible color meter, when I have time to use it and set the camera's white balance settings from it.
