    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.

    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?

    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.

    This man lives in America, he has to pay taxes and wants to earn his living. Actually there are 120 000 human beings thinking he is not overpriced at all.

    You can build such a light meter yourself, of course. You need an Arduino Nano, a battery, four switches, an OLED and an LDR. 20 USD. The first problem is the lens in front of the Arduino. The second problem is 3D printing. The third problem is programming. The fourth problem is evaluating. All of this can be solved, of course. Personally, I also enjoy doing something like this. But it takes time. If I have to choose between sitting at this project for 100 hours or photographing beautiful things with a Technika for 100 hours, then my decision has already been made. That's why I signed up on Kickstarter and support this project. When the light meter arrives, I will seal any openings waterproof. I will put orange tape on it. The light meter will be attached to my textile meter scale, to which the Linhof bellows loupe (without bellows) and the spirit level are also attached, and which I always hang around my neck. This will be a great thing. I hope you can access the microcontroller inside. Then maybe I'll program in the Gossen Profisix light balance ...

    I could still bite myself in the ass today because I didn't buy the Pocket Spot back then!!! https://meteredlight.blogspot.com/20...cket-spot.html
