Review Date: August 11, 2013 I can recommend this item: Yes | Price: $75.00 | Rating: 10 

Pros: Inexpensive, easy to use, exposure factor & compensation dials
Cons: None

I bought this Gossen meter to use with my Pentax 6x7 & 67 after I ditched the TTL prism.

The Luna-Pro can be used as an incident or reflected light meter by moving the spherical diffuser dome on the top of the meter. There is also an optional spot measuring attachment.

This is a great analog hand-held meter for film users, as the shutter speeds & apertures correspond to older manual film camera/lens dials.

There is also an exposure factor scale that allows you to correct for filters, extension tubes, and bellows light loss. For me this is an absolute must and is something I really miss on the Pentax Spotmeter V. After you take a meter reading you can also adjust it -3 to +3 EV for exposure compensation.

The Luna-Pro meter readings can be set as continuous or stored. (About 30 seconds)

This is the best and most accurate light meter that I have ever used and it has nice big dials to see your choice of shutter speeds & apertures. The incident meter is also a must if you do any portrait work.

If you shoot film and want a good versatile inexpensive analog hand-held light meter, the Luna-Pro sbc is highly recommended.
