I'm not sure what is out there in Photographic (usually expensive) light
meters but there are several listed at under $100 in the Hummert
International, Horticultural Supply Catalog that will work for
horticultural Purposes. There are several in the $150 and up range as
well. Hummerts Toll free number is 800-325-3055.
Hope that helps some.
