James's Light Meter Collection
Weston Electric ad, circa 1952

I didn’t start out collecting light meters; they just sort of showed up, usually in a gadget bag with a camera or a box of junk that I bought by the pound at a flea market.

When I started listing meters on my Camera Collection site, I was surprised to see how little information there was about them. So this is my little corner for examining a largely forgotten and overlooked area of photography.
