I have a Gossen Lunalight exposure meter. The basic unit has reflective (area and spot) and more importantly, incident light metering. The incident dome is not as complex shape as my Weston Master V but it has been invaluable for my slide exposure.

Now to my point ....

With all our discussion about histograms and exposure compensation, would it not be better to use an incident light meter which would completely avoid blown highlights?
