Which Sekonic light meter should I buy?

Recommended Posts

Hi all,

I recently started shooting film - I shoot Super16 on a Bolex H16 non-reflex and Super8 on a Nizo S800. I have been getting by exposing with a sekonic L-358 Flash Master but struggle when I come to wider landscapes and can't physically be where I need to expose for. 

I'd also love the benefits of being able to account for various filters and shutter angles when I eventually progress to shooting with more advances film cameras. My question is - which light meter would be most suitable? I see there's the L-608, L-558 but there aren't a great deal of comparisons and overviews of the different models and how they differ from the non cine versions. Any advice would be greatly appreciated!
