I have one of these Gossen flash meters to sell http://www.wexphotographic.com/buy-gossen-digisky-exposure-meter/p1524493
I bought it from the Flash Centre last year. Hardly been used so in "as new" condition. Perfect for triggering Elinchrom lights too. I have 2 other flash meters so this is available.

Cheers
Graham

If you want something cheap, why not just buy a brand new Sekonic 308? (arguably the base-standard of flash meters)
I prefer not to think before I speak. I like being just as surprised as everyone else by what comes out of my mouth.

If you feel £130 for a fairly advanced, very well made, and somewhat essential piece of studio oriented technology isn't for you then perhaps photography may not be the hobby that's best suited to you considering the comparative cost of everything else photography related.

To go any cheaper, I can only recommend a Lastolite Xpobalance (~35) and use it with histograms (I use them by getting the 'spike' of the white as far to the right of the histogram without actually clipping it), though it'll be far from accurate, or consistent.

Bear in mind as well that £130 is only the cost of a model working to high levels for 2-3 hours. Again, not much in the scheme of things and Sekonic meters last for years (my dad's one from the mid 1960s still works fine)

Better not offer my Sekonic L-758DR then.

But seriously, completely agree with Redchecker - a decent exposure meter/flashmeter is invaluable and as he says, a small price to pay in comparison. You may also want to consider a second hand Minolta Autometer 6 if you can find one, although I have no idea on price (even though I have one myself, along with a never opened or used Minolta Autometer VF)

Hi
I have a Calumet DFM3 in excellent condition with soft case. Owned from new. V good condition.
Make an offer. I won't promise the manual but if you are interested I will turn the house upside down to try to find it.
Pete
