While light meters are no longer majority of the photographers' go-to for measuring light, it's still something quite interesting to learn on especially for film photographers and analogue lovers.
Youtube channel Mind Splurge and its owner shares how he uses his old Walz Coronet, a vintage item passed on by his grandfather who was also a photographer. The Walz Coronet is a mechanical light meter made out of selenium, meaning that the needle readout is connected to the + and – ends of a selenium photo cell which produces more or less electric power when exposed to more or less light. But the needle's movement is beyond your control -- it's the turning of dials you'd probably want to be interested in.
