    I've just had a relative on the phone tell me that they're off east to China sooo I thought I would capitalise on such an offer and am in search of a Light Meter that will suit me and be pretty much more or less easy to find for the untrained eye of a 'not so keen' uncle.

    I have a Canon 400D and all its noobie accessories and I think a decently priced (i stress that) light meter would be great! So, any recommendations? Something mid price and really good would be superb.

    Thanks a lot!

    Sekonic L308S is a lovely meter, ambient, incident and flash in a small accurate package.
