Handheld meter technique


Hello all,

I would appreciate your advice where to find more info about how to use h-h eposure meter. Yes, I have the product manual but I try to find how to use the meter in creative sense.

It is for $200 which is very much. Do you know that? Is it worth for that money?

Recently I bought Sekonic 758D. From technical point of view it is simple to operate. I seek the "tricks" how to use a h-h meter to yield the best results with my 501CM. So far, with about 30 yrs break
, I took 35 mm pictures with manual camera with TTL metering. Using such a fine instrument as Hass 501CM totally independent on batteries is a new experience for me but a very nice one.
