    With digital, I've gone as little as 45 degree's. It actually seemed to help with rolling shutter effect on the pocket cameras.

  • Analogue Sekonic Light Meter Needle won't move 
    I'll assume you haven't dropped it.Is the needle free to move when you press the button- does it move if you shake the meter a little? If so, it suggests a wire has come adrift. If not, some fault...
