Re: Recommend me an affordable light meter.

Does a person need one? No. No you don't. In fact, if you are usually shooting in conditions that are similar (a home made studio or some such) you can be just as fast without one.

They can help speed up the pace if you are making significant changes every couple of shots though.

Have a look on Ebay for some of the notable models. Light meters are always being sold on Ebay... ...because people eventually learn that they are not that important anymore. I got a Minolta IV-F from Ebay for right around $100 a while ago. It gets used every once in a great while.
