Excerpt: I bought the light meter last week. When I started to read the instructions, it warned not to use rechargeable batteries; for instance the Ni-MH I have. A slight matter for some, but I really do not feel like carrying around yet another type of battery in my camera case.
Excerpt: Nice little meter, vary basic in its abilities and it is based on shutter speed. I'm pretty new to using a light meter and this is the perfect one to start with. Functional, accurate and low cost compared to the big boys.

I've owned a previous similar model, as well as a high-end Sekonic, and have found them to generally be reliable, and probably as durable as can be expected for a light meter. I don't use a meter much anymore, and this one serves my needs perfectly.
Excerpt: This is a fairly small but accurate meter. It tucks nicely in my bag, is quick and handy to whip out for a reading or two, and is simple to use. My only complaint is that it has a cheap plastic feel, where you get that creaky, slightly hollow plastic sort of feel when you hold it.
Excerpt: I've actually owned two of these. I used it less with my Leica M6 TTL, but I now own an M2, which does not have its own light meter. I use it to measure every picture I take.

Pros: Accurate, Compact, Consistent, Lightweight, Strong Construction
Excerpt: This is good first meter for portraits and some general landscapes. If you need more accurate readings for landscapes or have the abililty to sync with your studio lights then you need to step up to a more full function meter. But this meter works great for its size and functions.
