For Sale used Minolta Spotmeter F
I am selling this for a friend.
Excellent Condition (see photos in download).
Accurate Readings: Checked against another identical Minolta Spotmeter F, my Gossen Luna -Pro SBC, Gossen Luna-Six, my Pentax K-5 Camera, and Fujifilm X-100T Camera to be all within 1/4 Stop of one another.
Meter, Lens Cap, Wrist Strap included, Case missing.
Serial Number 75403219

Asking $225.00 USD
Shipping Postage Included
Sale to US Address Only
Prefer PayPal
If interested, PM me for additional details.
First come, first reserved, and served (for a reasonable amount of time for sale).
Note, I will be away from my computer and cell phone part of the day so I will have to check later to see who responded first.

Please note that this is a late film era digital LCD display reflectance spot exposure meter. For Zone System accurate exposures, it is a fantastic meter, compare to a Pentax or Soligar Analog Spotmeter. But for flash/strobe metering it is less convenient than a modern meter. You must use a “PC” cord between the meter and the flash that you are measuring. “PC” cords are also used to connect a wired flash or strobe to a camera.

Thank you for looking,
Mike

It was a great meter for conventional photography and most useful for monochrome images. Today practically every camera made has a spot meter built-in, not as useful as this but very useful indeed. I agree with you that a flash meter for studio work will work better than this spot meter.
For someone working with b&w this meter is an excellent tool to get the right exposure every time. Good luck with the sale.

I am interested in the item. I will need to use my PayPal account and think that you need to send me your account info or a invoice. I was also wondering if you have the case that was originally part of the package. Let me know if you need anything else. I have only used my PayPal in situations where a invoice was used , not to sure about this way. Thank you, BK Bullock

Hi, Thank you for your interest. Two issues: (1) Another UHH member earlier today wanted to purchase it but has not been to his PC or SmartPhone since yet and has to completed the purchase but since he is local to me and able to pick the exposure meter up in person and thus saving me the postage. I would like to give him a day so if he does not complete the purchase or contact me by noon PDT I'll sell it to you. (2) I am not selling this item via ebay or any other sales site and I am not a commercial retailer so there is no way for me to send an invoice (that is for eBay sales and the like). I have bought and sold both via eBay with PayPal.

Any way, if I do sell it too you I'll PM my PayPal account name to you (Sunday) and pay that and it is yours. By the way, where are you US State at least at this point? So I will know where I will likely have to mail it. Once I PM you , you log on to your PayPal account and Send Money. You can do it as a Payment and not as a Transfer to (friend or family). I'll absorb the tiny fee. That way I get a statement with you accurate Mailing address via PayPal. If you want to you can add a note as to what the cash was for. Oh, if a case means that much to you, you can have mine, I only store my identical meter in it. But I was not planning to sell the case. It is not convenient to use while using the meter. It would get in the way. It is not like the old school body camera cases. Feel free to write back with questions or answers while you wait until noon. Thank you.
