    Reveni spot meter

    Came across this today. A new spot meter, a number of different reviews on You Tube. Good price point for those who find its viewing-lensless design amenable. Good to see a new item in this field!

    Here's a closer look from a trusty film photographer who loves his Pentax digital:

    Hmm, for me, it's small enough to drop and lose in the leaves or ruin in a puddle of water.

    But, Heroique, it's small weight and size perhaps make keeping it on a lanyard more attractive?

    Certainly one of its nice attractions.

    But count on me dropping it/losing it within a year. ;^)

    This is from someone whose orange tape around his Pentax digital has kept it from being left in the woods.

    Heroique,

    My Pentax spot meters are on lanyards that tie to a tab on my vest (about shirt pocket height) or something similar, like a button, or even around my neck. The meter lives in a pocket, but the lanyard is short enough that the meter won't hit the ground if dropped (unless I'm kneeling...). The lanyard has saved my meter more than once...

    Best,

    Doremus

    Agree, needs a sturdy lanyard with unbreakable ring and lens covers that will not get lost or cracked

    Hunter orange is prefered

    I now try to buy all gadgets in bright colors so I can find them

    does it float?

    Re: Reveni spot meter

    FWIW, it comes with a case and lanyard. I backed it on Kickstarter and I'm looking forward to playing around with it. Personally, if I can shave even a few ounces off my 8x10 outfit when packing far afield, I'm definitely going to give it a go; not that my Pentax Digital Spot meter is all that "heavy."

    Seems like it's a bit overpriced.
