I currently use a Weston Master V and used to use a Weston Master II until
I broke the glass.  Sometimes I don't use a meter at all (when I am outside
in daylight).  I use the Weston meters because I can get them inexpensively,
(~$5 usually) and the battery never runs down ;-).  I use the Weston like a 
spotmeter although this often requires quite a bit of walking :-).

I would like to use a Pentax Digital Spotmeter but they cost a lot and that
money could be better spent buying film/paper/chemistry/mat board/frames/etc.
