Minolta Auto Meter IIIF

How good is this meter, and is it too bulky? KEH has one with case for less than 80 bucks.

Sincerely

Bulk is a consideration, but more important, does it do what you need it to do and does it take readily available batteries? The manual can be helpful and is available from the Butkus site:

Minolta Color Meter IIIF instruction manual, user manual, PDF manual, free manuals, classic camera manual

(Hint: if you find the manual useful, Butkus accepts gratuities via PayPal)

Note: This is not an exposure meter as such. It is a color meter as used to calculate color correction filters.

I think the one I am talking is Minolta Auto meter IIIF manual, user manual, free instruction manual, pdf manuals

Yes, I can buy the required 4LR44 or 4SR44 (unlike cameras, this meters lists both as usable) batteries on Amazon easily (and in packs). It also has an shutter priority meter mode which I like.
