I need a lightmeter for super 16 use, with ambient and spot readings...which is best.
Many thanks

There is no need for anything special because of super 16...

Make a research on the forums, you'll find topics that have already discussed this.

I use a Sekonic L308B - this is the most basic of the digital read out meters offered by Sekonic, but I have found it to be utterly superb. I think Jessops sell for about £120.

I use it for both cinematography ans stills.

Sekonic do some very good multi function meters wich do incident, reflected and Spot, but the price does go upwards.
