G.E. MODEL 80W56Y4 PHOTO EXPOSURE METER - $19 (Tucson)

In this age of digital photography, this G.E. model 80w56y4 photo exposure meter is still essential for reading light sources in ‘footcandles’ so multiple light sources can be balanced. For instances, the “1-2-3'” rule of portrait lighting (hair light should be ½ of key light and fill light should be 1/3 of key light) can be read at the subject position with the hood off. Likewise sunlight and reflector light, artificial and moon light, artificial and firelight, and artificial and candle light can be balanced. If you’re using film, the movable circular dial computes your f-stop and shutter speed based on your ASA (American Standards Association) film speed in both bright sunlight conditions (with the hood door closed) and low level artificial light conditions (with the hood door open). This meter uses a photo sensitive silicon cell which does not require a battery for operation, as do CDS cells, and is, like most films, slightly insensitive to green, unlike CDS cells which are slightly insensitive to red and can give false skin tone readings. DISCLAIMER: This meter’s glass window has two cracks in it which do not impair its function in any way. To see over 200 related items, click on the “other ads by this user” link at the right. This item is in good condition, but is sold as-is, no returns, so pickup and inspection in Tucson, Arizona, is preferred. Out of town buyers email with any questions and for payment and shipping instructions.
