Gossen Digisix vs Digisix 2

What is improved or different about the new Digisix 2?
The only difference I see is a black dial instead of a white one.

I have the digisix and the only difference I see is the contrast measurement. As much as I like it I think it's too small I have a Minolta Autometer 3 as well and it much faster and easier to use in a hurry and if I don't want to carry that I use my iphone app.
Good luck frase.

Actually... both of them have the contrast measurement. In the digisix, if you keep the button pressed and move the meter around, it will tell you how many stops above or below surrounding objects are. Isn't that the contrast measurement?

I guess the only difference is the black dial vs the white dial?!
definately not worth upgrading.

They could have improved on battery drain (maybe an off switch) though - my Digisix needs a new battery about every 6 months.

The batteries are pretty inexpensive, especially per dozen, or so.

I am glad yours lasted 6 months. Mine usually lasted a day. Sent it back twice and they didn't do anything to it. It has been in its box since then about 4 years.

I've just changed the battery in mine for the first time and I think I must of had it for at least a couple of years.

The batteries on my Digisix 2 have been lasting about a year. I can live with that.

According to the Gossen website, the Digisix and Digisix2 are the same except for cosmetics.
