    Have a chance to buy a Soligor Digital Spot Sensor for $60 US.
    The guy says it has been out of the box only once or twice. He bought
    it c1985. The little bit of info I found on the web sounds like it's a
    good deal.
    Have any of y'all used this meter have a opinion on it?
    The guy says he *thinks* he will find the manual. Wonder if there is a
    manual available for download.

    Thanks,

  2. If it's accurate, buy it!

    I have the analog version that I bought new about 1975. I had it
    calibrated (It initially was about 2/3 stop off.) by a local camera
    tech shortly after I got it, and have done nothing to it since. Still
    works. Still accurate. It's outlived 3 incident meters -- a Sekonic
    L28C Studio Deluxe (predessor of the 398), and two Minolta IIIF's.

    Hi Stefan, thanks for your comments.

    I am unfamiliar with meters but am interested in them and I will
    likely buy the Soligor spot meter as the price is right.
    I am wondering a few things about this meter...
    Is it only a spot meter or can it be used as an incident /
    reflective meter? Can it meter flash?
    Have been trying to find info on the web about this meter but can find
    nothing technical about it.
    Is there an *easy* way to test if the meter is properly
    calibrated? What would you suggest to test the meters accuracy?
    Won't be meeting with the guy selling it for a few weeks so I would
    like to learn a few things about it before then.

    Thanks again,

    I doubt it.
    Isn't that the same meter Adorama sells under it's own name?

    Easy way is to compare against a working meter. Or bring a grey card and
    test using sunny 16 but that requires you understand sunny 16.
