These answers are helping me to fill in my understanding so thank you.

Googling is like asking how cameras work and getting. Power it on. Look through view finder. Aim. Press on botton. Which sucks when I want to know about bayer sensor, foven sensor, image circle, mirror box and the like.

That's what I meant. The time it gathers light for a measurement and the time between measurements. If it measures 4 times a second it's 1/4sec if no delay between measurements. Light flicker is 50/60 per second so it would read 12-15 cycles.

I really only care for information not for any reason. To me it's as useful as an mtf chart for a lens I have. I can just take a picture and see how it looks but the mtf chart is interesting.

Now from thinking about it I want to know what range of the spectrum it measures and how the rest is filtered out. Is it more sensitive to red or blue, etc. I can't see it working like the sensor; 2 parts green, 1 blue, 1 red but maybe it does.

It's what started me wondering when I had changing readings. Now I just want the answer.

I am wondering the speed of the light meter reading because of electric lighting. I would think you could change it to read in 1/50, 1/60 increments. I looked around and haven't found anyone addressing this. Does anyone know?
