My favourite meter is the Gossen Lunasix F which does both flash and ambient. It uses a proper needle and is particularly quick and easy to use. A good one can be had for 40 or 50 on Fleabay.

This is like saying Canon cameras are best! Sekonic and Gossen are both good but they're different. My wife prefers the former and I prefer the platter.

Only ever got one, but the Sekonic L-308S worked very well for me in studio situations. I thnk Paul recommended that too a few years ago, thanks still happy with it.

You can`t go wrong with either of those two meters I recommended earlier Stuart, both do the same job and are simple to use.

Did it come with an instruction book? That's a good place to start.

I've still got a beautiful old Weston EuroMaster ... it's almost a piece of art and it works a treat Smile

(Okay, it's not digital in any way and I break a nail each time I have to turn the damned dials round, but that's part of the fun Grin) Trouble is I've gotten lazy with using the camera to measure the light ... I really should dig the EuroM out and give it a whirl again, just to see what the differences are.
