Hi everyone
Sorry if this is in the wrong section but I'm real new to forums.

I have a krasnogorsk k3 and I understand the onboard light meter is not to be trusted.
I have looked at many light meters but they all seam far to advanced for my needs

I know at 24 frames per second the shutter speed is 1/60th
So I only really need to know the f stop right ?

So my question is is there a light meter you can recommend that
Perhaps any of you use ?

Many thanks in advance,
Cheers Dave from the uk

Any basic incident meter would work fine -- Sekonic, Spectra, Kenko, Minolta, etc.

 

For a reflective meter, you could try something like this iPhone app:

Sekonic 398a would be perfect for that camera.  Use 1/50th- not a big difference unless you want to keep shadow detail or clouds....(it'll be marked on the meter)

and no batteries!
