    Excellent product

    Comments about Gossen Sixtomat F2 Exposure Meter:

    Accurate, compact and easy to operate, made in Germany, light meter with f & t priority setting. Using Seconic L758D as a reference, it meters within less than 1/3 stop accuracy. It has a feel of a good quality product with a well written, clear and comprehensive instruction manual - if needed. It runs on inexpensive readily available one AA battery. Sixtomat F2 represents a good value for money. I would recommended to a friend.

      Comments about Gossen Sixtomat F2 Exposure Meter:

      This is a great meter, it does both incident AND reflected, can be set to aperture or shutter priority, and has an excellent ISO range. One handed operation is great and it also has the ability to fire your flash via a sync cable. All this and a great price. The manual is pretty well written, but may be too technical for a beginner.
