Gossen Luna Pro Like New Again

Restored my Gossen Luna Pro to excellent working condition. Had been setting for several years due to inability to find local battery replacements. I now use it all the time, both with Digital and Film cameras.

Questionable performance

I am not sure how to review this as when I put it in the old Luna Pro it read consistantly two stops over what it should. Since I had no other Luna Pro to compare I elected to recalibrate the meter using info from several web sites. It now works reasonably well but I will always wonder If I got a dud conversion kit(or was my Luna Pro that far off?). I decided to keep this but the cost seems unreasonable as well.

Works great!

I needed a battery replacement for my Konica Autoreflec TC. Regular batteries are the wrong voltage, so after some research I found this as a replacement. It drops the voltage just right to get the meter to work properly. I had to sand .005" off of it to get it to fit properly.

It works

By

I thought my old Luna Pro was a thing of the past until I found this. Without the adapter using different batteries, my readings weren't accurate, but now they're dead on.

Conquer Obsolescence

By

from Palmdale, California

With the change in battery voltages on commonly available power sources an excellent meter was rendered obsolete. Now this little device fixes the problem so 1.5 volt batteries restore the meter to working condition. A bit costly but worth it.

Brings you old Luna Pro Back to Life

By

from Boston

With mercury cells off the market, this allows you to continue to use your Luna Pro light meter by stepping down the voltage of alkaline cells. Zinc air is an alternative, but those cells constantly discharge once unsealed. Would give 5 stars if the price were more realistic.

Great

Great Product! Allows you to use common batteries in your old Luna Pro. Simple as that.

This adapter is tremendous!!!!!

By

from Marshall, NC  -  Hobbyist/Enthusiast

I purchased this adapter about 15 years ago. It is simple in design; fits the batery compartment with precision; and supplies the Luna Pro with the proper current/voltage it needs from "357" batteries. If you have an older Luna Pro that operated on the old Hg batteries, this is for you.

Questions & Answers Powered by TurnTo®

Questions about this item:

Shopper  Why Did You Choose This?
DAVID E  I wanted to use my old Luna Pro without having to use a conversion lookup table due to the higher voltages of the current silver-oxide batteries that don't match the old mercury battery voltages.
Michael S  Since the LR44 battery is 1.5 volts does this kit reduce the voltage to 1.35 volts? Thanks ..... Michael
Richard B  I think it probably does but have not checked this. With this kit my meter worked fine and seemed to be very accurate. This is about the only choice I have found to get my meter working.
Shopper  HOW YOU PUT IN THE BATERRIES?
DONALD L  I was using this in a very old light meter. Evidently the meter was so old that it no longer worked. I gave it away to someone who wanted to try and repair it. To answer your quesion it was so long ago that I do not remember how the batteries went in.
