I looked through the archives but couldn't find the answer to my question. Which color temperature meter is the best? I am leaning towards Gossen but only because it seems Minolta doesn't make one anymore. Is it worth trying to find a used Minolta? Are they better?

Thanks!

Minolta still makes a color meter: See bottom of this page.
The Color Meter III is the most common one I've seen. Only seen Gossens a couple times, but that says nothing about which is better (could be Gossens everywhere outside the US for all I know). I haven't owned a color meter, so I couldn't say which is "better."

They both read color and give a correction factor, don't they? ;)

I also have never owned a colour temp meter . Never seemed an important thing to own , why do you think you need one ? John Holland ,London.

Get 'em while they're hot- Minolta sold its photo business to Sony this summer. My guess is Sony won't be very interested.
