Re: Light Meter - Help - $250 to $350 Range

Given the example images it looks to me like you should be using a spot meter some of the time.  Of course you can use the spot meter function of your camera then set the exposure manually.

The Sekonic L-358 seems to have been discontinued but it is a great meter if you can still find one.  It works in both aperture and shutter priority, which lower cost Sekonics do not do.  If you can find one without the Pocket Wizard RF transmitter you can save about $60.  You can buy a 1, 5, or 10 degree spot meter attachment.

Another good choice is the new Sekonic L-478D (or DR with PW RF trigger).  There is a 5 degree spot meter attachment available.

The Gossen DigiPro F is a good flash/ambient meter but I don't know if it can do spot metering.
