Default Light Metering

Any suggestions on what types of light meters I should be looking at?

Ambiant, Exposure, or Color?
the price's range so far out that I don't want to over purchase.

Thanks for your input :idea:

I'm sorry but what do you mean by light meters? Studio work? or did I completely missunderstand?

Most exposure meters will measure both incidence and reflective light. Just check to see if it includes a white globe that is either built into the meter or snaps on as an attatchment. As for a color meter, I think that's more for the pros. It's not necessary for amatuer photography unless you plan to specialize in a certain field of photography.

While I like Gossen meters, the two in your price range use selenium cells, which I don't like. lol If I was buying a meter from those listed, I'd go with the Sekonic L-208 Twin Mate Meter
