This meter was introduced in 1975. It uses a selenium cell, no batteries needed. I got this on eBay mainly as an inexpensive but reliable incident/reflective light meter, as my Gold Crest meter I've had for 36 years is only a reflective light meter.

The Gossen is now my go-to meter I take to the field with me. The only drawback is, the value given isn't in EV but rather just a scale from 1-11. why not EV? I don't know. Also, it is off by 1 EV value. On a nice sunny day at high noon, the incident meter pointed right at the sun reads: at ASA 100, 125 sec at f/11, not f/16
