+ - 1/2 EV compared to Sekonic L-508, both in incident and reflected light. Pretty impressive.

I've still got an old Weston Master II Model 735 Meter that works (these were made in the 40's). I was looking at it yesterday. But, I don't know how accurate it is now. It's a hand held meter though.

That Kodalux L looks pretty slick. I like it's design from what I can see of it (especially given that that it can be shoe mounted). I'm jealous. :-)

Looking at the window on the left, it seems noise was a problem in those days too.

They're beautiful pieces of industrial art. I love them. They were made for lasting years. Now this is an old and wierd setup, isn't it:

Its amazing when someone screws up and makes something that lasts a really long long time. Its been a long time since I saw one of these. Do you remember its original price?

Not really Bynx. It was my father's light meter, which he never used. Decades latter I bought this one:

100% truthful. I can't complain. Not at all.
(Sorry the bad pick).
