Strength:

Large, chunky, robust, well-made, reliable, battery life is good even with rechargeables. The add-ons for flash, spot, etc make it one of the most versatile meters.

Weakness:

None that I've found; the size is sometimes a bit of a drawback, but the very size of it makes it a pleasure to use.

A marvellous bit of kit. In the tough leather case this will travel anywhere with you and is always ready. I haven't yet really used it for low light situations, but I did buy it for its wide range, just in case I did need it for that.

Customer Service

From what I've heard, Gossen are really good at supporting their older products, but I've yet to need it. This meter is like new, despite being years old.

Strength:

Legible and logical controls. Powerful light SBC collector cell. Uses D type battery (you can test it with your tongue or by the internal Bat check switch). EV meter calibration. F stops from 0.7 to 128 Shutter speed reading from 4K to 8 Hours + or - needle reading for +-3 stops

Weakness:

one needs to learn to use all instrumentation to lessen human error. this thing does a lot of read-outs so read up before heading out.

This is a wonderful piece of machinery. It uses a high quality SBC photo cell that I use to check my other camera equipment and lens (wide angle - due to fall off). It works well enough for regular scenes. I have made a couple of personal mistakes with it (human error), but oh well, what are you going to do. I just have to remember since it takes incident and reflected metering to uncover the bulb from the front reading hole to take my most often type of light measure - reflected. Not much more than that except to understand how the equipment works before you take it out for real critical work.
