I have been using an old pentax spot meter with good results. I did get it off ebay and since it had no manual I basically figured out how to use it. One thing I hope someone can clear up is when the number in the meter is higher than 10 what do you match it up with since the dial only goes to 10? I hope this makes since. Situations over 10 are usually pretty bright. So far I just guesstamate which means I usually over expose it.
