Zeiss Ikophot Lightmeter

Ikophot Rapid

Ikophot was Zeiss/Ikon's name for their hand-held meters; like a lot of companies, they didn't get around to giving them separate model names until later on, fairly popular, Zeiss made a couple versions of it with only minor tweaks.

This is the Ikophot Rapid which has a match-needle instead of a scale.

Agfa Lucimeter S  Light Meter & Case

This is the last of the Agfa Light meters, This is a match-needle type with no scale on the face.

It uses a selenium cell so no batteries to deal with. Simple to use, just aim it at the subject and the needle moves. Then rotate the outer ring on the meter dial and the diamond-shaped needle moves. Move the dial so that the other needle is in the middle of the diamond shape. Then you can read the speed/aperture combinations in the lower half of the dial.

Case & Lanyard Supplied

Leningrad 4 Light Meter & Case

This is quite a nice meter. It's bright and easy to read.

There's a big slide-switch on the side which is the high-low scale switch; it's spring-loaded so you have to hold it to stay in Low, and then it flips back.

The meter scale is on a roller so when you go to Low, the scale changes appropriately.

Incident attachment in case

Leningrad 8 Light Meter & Case

Simple to use meter. Set the calculator dial , take a reading and note the light value the needle is pointing to, then turn the dial until the pointer meets up with that number.

The slide switch on the side flips the scale on the meter face.

Incident attachment in case
