Do any of you guys use a spot meter, like a 1-degree, on a regular basis?
Although I used meters in the medieval days of 35mm still work, I never worked with a spot meter. Can I assume that I take my various readings of the scene and then extrapolate the optimum f-stop for what I want to do?
My other fear is that I have no idea how the K-3's meter behaves--whether it's averaging, more center-weighted, etc. It just seems safer from the get-go to spend some bucks on a decent meter when we're talking about blowing $100 for two bad reels of 100' anyway. (Not to mention the time lost.)
I was thinking spot because I want a cool thing that I can look through and appear important to all of those insignificant passers-by.
