Weston V was used by pros in film days, stainless steel body
selenium light cell // direct // incident metering // hi // lo sensitivity.
I have added my own Zone system scale, they retain a very high degree of accuracy and could be used today with any fully manual P&S but more so with a DSLR on a tripod as you are free to meter anywhere while DSLR is on a tripod.
Some things don't change ask a pro who uses a 4 X 5 view camera.

I use to have a Sekonic; I paid $15.00 for it waaaaaaay back.

Check out his new super dooper zoomer model for $680.00. $680, that is more then most cameras, it will make you breakfast if you are nice to it.

I had a Sekonic back then, too, probably the same one.

Still have the incident light attachment somewhere, but lost the meter long ago.

Lent it and an SLR to a 'friend' -- didn't see anything of 'friend' and gear for a couple of years.

One day the camera came back via a third party, full of sand, minus lens cap and with a large hole burned in the shutter curtain -- never saw 'friend' or meter again.

Must be a moral to the story somewhere...
