    ive been looking into light meters and ive decided on a brand, but i need some advice on the two models.

    Its between the "2 digital Meter" or the "Dual 5 Meter".

    do i really need the 5 degree spot and incident measurer?

    Thanks in advance!

    apparently an incident meter is good for flash...but I don't really see a point in advanced meters anyways...so I'll wait for someone else to chime in.

    Polaris is good, but I tend to much prefer Minolta or Sekonic for meters with flash capability, especially given the rather wide availability of spot-metering attachments for the newer meters.
