The Gossen Digisix 2, is a lightweight, digital, incident exposure meter for ambient light with a very small form factor and a myriad of features that will virtually assure it a place in your camera bag.

The meter's EV value is measured and indicated in the digital display and then transfered to the setting ring. All the useful shutter speed and f/stop combinations can be read at a glance.

The meter boasts many useful convenience features such as a timer function for measuring from 1.0 second to 30 minutes, a watch (adjustable for both 12 or 24 hour display) and an ambient temperature thermometer which can be set for either Celsius or Fahrenheit. The lowlight sensitivity of the Digisix 2 allows accurate measurements in low light such as twilight scenarios.

        Comments about Gossen Digisix 2 Light Meter:

        This is a brilliant, small and lightweight meter. It is super easy to use either as an incident meter or as a reflected light meter. Just flick the dome to change from one to the other. It reads in light values and it is very easy to read the corresponding aperature and shutter choices. B&H were great, the meter came perfectly packaged. I recommend both B&H and Gossen.

          Comments about Gossen Digisix 2 Light Meter:

          I have several cameras that do not have their own light meters. This one works just fine. The only real negative is the battery tray: it's a little plastic frame one pulls out of one end of the meter, into which the flat battery is placed. It took several minutes of fighting to get that tray pulled, and I'm good with my hands. Otherwise, it's fine.

            It may not be fully automated, but it'll get the job done.

                Comments about Gossen Digisix 2 Light Meter:

                I needed a meter to use with my growing collection of cameras without internal meters, or with broken meters. I chose this one due to its compactness, and the Gossen name. It does not disappoint. The smallest meter I have seen, smaller than I expected. About half the size of a pack of cigarettes, and weighs almost nothing. With the (somewhat overpriced) accessory shoe-mount adaptor the Digisix-2 slides onto my Argus, Retina, Canonet, and several others. In that use-mode, the D2 is brilliant and I can't think how it could be improved. It's accurate, matching the meters in my Nikon D7000 and D600 when those are set to center-weighted metering, never more than 1/3 EV variance. One-handed use is a snap. No need to line up dials with a bouncy needle, you point and click the measurement button, the D2 reads in EV on the LCD, and you move the exposure dial a few clicks to find the 10 or 12 proper combinations (the only flaw in this meter is the small size of the EV numerals on the dial). All in all, a winner, especially for the size, accuracy/reliability, and simplicity. Recommended above everything else in the market, unless you have need of flash metering, or other specialized functionality. A very good meter, and with the shoe-mount adaptor it is peerless for cameras with dead/no meter.

                    Works for me as a DSLR shooter. You can't turn it off, but it is supposed to last a long time on the battery anyway.

                    Dump the lanyard immediately, it broke the first time I used it and sent the meter to the floor.

                          This is a nice compact light meter, you just have to be careful about which mode your are in, because the mode button is exposed, and can easily change.
