Hi, I have recently received my father\'s old photography equipment (I am also a keen photographer), including a Weston Master III.
Does anyone know where to find instructions on how to use it?? I do DSLR photography and not used one of these before, but I had been thinking of getting a (modern) light meter. Now I am wondering if I could actually use this one instead! If anyone has suggestions please let me know. Thanks in advance, Anna

Thanks for your site. Decided to get back into photography after giving it up when dark rooms left. Dug my old stuff out, found my old Wesson Master 6 but no manual. Luck for me I found it here. Now if I could only remember what year I bought it? Thinking early to mid 1970\'s after my trusty Mamyia/Sekor 1000 TL camera.

Well off to a DSLR now...but with some old time ideas about exposures.

Thanks again
Ed

Hi great site, I have recently picked up a leather case for a Western Digital meter that has a extra large case that has internally fitted into it an Invercone and ND filter into the case. Can you tell me which meter this would be for as I have a couple of meters that I would like to match it up with as it would have been originally, thanks

I have had many Weston light meters over the years ranging from an early octaganol model, W2, W2 Cine Metre, W4, Eurometer and Eurometer 2 and still have a few in my collection. I have really enjoyed reading the history of the company as well as about the various models and have placed a link to this website from my own website... hppt://www.canalscape.net

Found in one of dad\'s old military foot-lockers:
Weston Master Cine Exposure Meter
Model 720
Serial # 606610
Appears to be new in box; leather case, 2 books(1-instruc/1-film ratings), box has wear from moving around in footlocker.
Needs good home? Maybe museum or university?

tks,

My very first Weston Master was purchased in 1973.

It was accidentally destroyed and its remnants stand in a French photography museum.

I came across a (second-hand, very good) Master 5 purchased via Etsy.com and recently bought a Euromaster 2.

I owned other lightmeters, all very good, but the Weston Master meters were and still are the kind of tool you handle without any hesitation and feel well with them.

Inherited my father\'s Weston light meter. Fits most of your description for the 850 junior, and came with the rigid leather case. Inside, my father wrote his name and year he purchased as 1956. Only real difference I see in your photos and this meter is on the back side there is no metal plate with serial or patent number. The Weston Elec. Inst. Corp. is pressed into the plastic, and there is no model number or any other identifying marks. Was Weston making these in the 1950\'s, or was this purchased used? Any other information would be appreciated.

A simple conversion formula might be useful to those with light meters operating using Weston film speeds: Weston Speed = 80% of ASA (or ISO) speed.

I have a S74/715 in working order and good condition. The serial number is A0305. Just wondering if that makes it an early one - or do serial numbers not work that way for Westons?
Great site!

I have acquired an E703 Lightometer as mentioned in your listings. The meter legend describes it as a Sight light meter. UK manufacture. It has a copyright stamp on it of 1939. Hope this helps you fix a date for this model.

My Weston Master 5 (purchased in the 1970s) was unfortunately destroyed in the 1990s, and is now in a photography museum.
My very last meter was a (selenium-cell-bases) Sekonic Studio, which I gave to a relative of mine studying photography.
But the Master 5 was the best light metering tool I ever handled.
If you have a tip to purchase a Weston Euromaster, you\'re welcome.
Thank you for this very informatice and rich website.

I inherited my father\'s Weston meter. On the front it says Weston Master V but it has Euromaster pattern controls.The rear says it is a Model S461-6 made by Sangamo Weston in Enfield. The serial is 3180N. Still works after having a new cell a few years ago. I use it when shooting film as a check of what the cameras say.
