click for larger adJust about any decent light meter will work with both still cameras and movie cameras (cine), but Weston liked to sell sister-versions of their Masters that were specifically for movie work. The main differences were the scales (the still camera model read directly in foot-candles; the cine in a log-progression of "light values") and an optimized calculator dial.
