Sheperd FM800 electronic light meter

Asking Price

Item Location
Quebec city (Canada)

Item Description
I am selling a light meter that I got as part of a package. The light meter is very well made, small and light but with a reliable feel to it. It can be used to measure either incident light or reflected light (in other words, near the subject or near the photographer). It also has a X-sync port so I'm almost 100% sure that it can be used as an optical trigger.

It comes with a leather soft case. Both the meter and the case look like they are new.

I'm also listing a SF1n and lens, I can combine shipping if needed.

Feel free to ask questions!

It should be mentioned that this is a flash meter, not an ambient light meter.

Actually it will read ambient light as well. I have one of these meters, and a Vivitar-branded copy as well. Pressing the read button will give you the correct aperture for an exposure of 1/125 sec under ambient light for whatever ISO the meter is set for. You can then adjust shutter speed and aperture from there, perhaps via Hyper-Manual.
