I don't know if this is the right place to ask, but "classic manual cameras" was the closest, so here it goes: I was recently given a vintage Gossen Sixtar (Pilot in the US) light meter. I already have a Lunasix, but the Sixtar appeals more to me because of the smaller size. The readings seem to be fairly accurate, but the needle is quite slow to settle to its final resting point (in excess of 10 seconds). It moves quickly to a certain area of the indicator panel, then it very slowly drifts to finally stop at least one or two stops from where it showed originally. The Lunasix needle responds almost instantly, so I wanted to know if this is normal.
