Default KEKS shoe-mount light meter

Similar to the little Reveni light meter that was introduced a short time ago (thread about that one here: http://www.film-and-darkroom-user.or...ad.php?t=13053) the KEKS meter is another mini unit for use on older cameras. Fits in the flash shoe, comes in silver and black. Nice looking device. Display seems nice and bright. Price is very reasonable too.

I'm thinking about something like this for my TLRs and old folder. Great idea!

Out of the two, I prefer the design and overall look of this new one, but I have more than enough hand held meters to keep me happy.

I'm now trying to think of something that I would buy if it was designed and made. I'll report back when / if I come up with something.

I agree. The Reveni one looks crude and simple by comparison. I like the design of the KEKS one much better. Very clean.

Great concept though. Having a shoe-mounted meter appeals for things like a city wander so I don't have to carry another device. Just an old camera on a shoulder strap and that's it.
