Re: Recommend me an affordable light meter.

The standard at the local college is the Sekonic L-358.  If you qualify, Sekonic offers education pricing of $240 just google    MAC on Campus

This time of year a lot of students are selling meters they "had" to buy for school but never used.  I posted I was looking for an excellent condition L-358 for $150.  2 students contacted me and I bought one in like new condition.

To answer your other question, a lot of models tell me no-one uses a light meter but if you want to do ratios it can't be beat.  Looks a bit more professional than shooting and checking the LCD 10 times for trial and error.
