Talking So I went to my Local camera shop again

Sooooo, I went to my Local camera shop again today. I walk out with a Gossen Digiflash meter.... I have been using an old GE from the 1940's it works fair, but I was loosing some shot to it. I also have a digital spot. but when I have been shooting people and I put it up to your eye it takes away any element of suprise.. They duck, run ,shout ,shoot, stabe, and use alot of bad words....

This thing is much smaller than I thought... and much quicker than I had imagined ... I just walked in the door with so now its time to burn some C41 for some quick results.....



I am going to have some explaining to do when my wife gets home.. (Food who needs it? Its over rated and and it cause alot of clean up... I am going to the store for some beer)

Explain it this way, the meter will pay for itself because you wont blow the exposure and waste more expensive film.
