|Along with the meter there are also:
|The HIGH Slide
Located in the sleeve in back of the meter. Used for very bright situations, such as shooting out-of-doors during the day.
|The Honey-comb or Grid
Located in the pocket of the meter case. This is used for taking reflective readings (with the meter pointed at the subject). As it says on the front, read off the “H” without the HIGH Slide in place. But because it needs a fairly large amount of light, it is not always very useful.
Located in the pocket of the meter case. Used for comparing readings from specific lights, such as key and fill (for instance, comparing the readings on the sides of someone’s face). This should not be used in place of the sphere arbitrarily.
