Still no answer to my question. Obviously meters have errors, cheap mass produce meters are likely to have greater errors. Obviously with a Display 3 Pro or a C6, one is buying having that meter calibrated against a much more unit to unit accurate meter and having cranked into it externally or internally, offsets to make it read as measurements done with the better mater. Obviously, not every measurement made using the offsets will have the same result as the better meter especially at low light levels. Fine. Thank You.
But the C6 is marketed as coming with a NIST certification. What does that exactly mean? How could a NIST certificated meter be better than one that didn't come with such a certication. Provided the reference meter is certified and operated under the conditions the certication applied to, what is the gd difference?
I hereby bless the C6 but I don't bless the C3Pro even though they are both the same meter and calibrated exactly the same. If you want me to bless the C3Pro, please put some money in my collection plate or is there some other difference that I am not getting. A simple, direct question that I am waiting for Spectracal to answer. A company whose products I own, who I am close to many people at, who has used my HT to conduct training classes in my area.
The silence is deafening. Sotti has read my post. Please answer without any obfiscation. If there isn't any difference, please say so. Its not a deal breaker. Does it mean more than just something to try and get someone to buy a C6 over a Display3Pro. There being other reasons of course such as the handy dandy carrying case and a tripod head or extender, or whatever, to try and justify the substantial pricing difference. I have both calibration programs. Which meter should I buy? Is one better or are they basically the same?
