Default Need opinions on flash meters...

I am going to be ordering a small studio setup from alien bees very soon and need a flash meter. I've heard you guys mention Sekonic, are there other brands that are good, too? I'm thinking I should be able to find what I need for around $200. Any recommendations? Thanks!

Yes sekonic is a good brand,
also Sheppard, Goslen, Minolta are other brands(among many others) that make flashmeters. Possiblly Alien Bees may have their own house brand too, (Britek does) not sure how good they are.

Things to look for are:
Can it do multi function (incident, reflected, spot and flash metering) if you want it.?
Can it sum exposures?
How accruate is it 1/2 stop, 1/3 stop, etc.

Each of these abilities will up the price, so only get the features you really need.
