I'm looking to upgrade my old Weston Master light meter with a more upto date one. i.e. a digital one.

I've been looking on ebay, I've a pretty good idea what to go for, something like a minolta auto meter 3.

I'm just looking to double check that I don't buy something which is useless for cinematography.

What types of digital meter should I avoid, are there specific stills photography digital meters which I may accidently buy?

Thanks

Minolta meters are out of production so you might have a problem getting spare parts for them in the furure.

I use a sekonic L-558 Cine. It is foolproof. But I was having problems with it to begin with. :)
