    Fantastic Meter

    I really like this meter. It does everything I need and a bit more. I find it easy to use as it follows similar interface design as my DSLR's "press-this-and-spin-that" UI. The integrated pocket wizard, ability to meter light ratios and balance ambient light is fantastic. The use of this meter has improved my shots.A previous reviewer said the interface was poor - I disagree. The interface is extremely simple for the basic functions you'll use all the time. Set the ISO, take a reading, change between reflected spot and incident, set the pocket wizard channel, set the exposure time for ambient, etc.When using the more advanced features, it gets a little more complicated. For example, metering the highlights, the shadows and mid-tones and display them all at once, or meter the lighting ratio between lights. Perhaps it could be a little easier but I don't find it a hinderance.In fact I didn't notice the complexity as it's no more complicated than most... 4/5 Chris Huston - See all my reviews, January 4, 2009

    One of the best purchases I've ever made.

    5/5 Bill Neugent (Sulphur, LA United States) - See all my reviews Verified Purchase(What's this?) This review is from: Sekonic L-758DR DigitalMaster Light Meter (Black) (Electronics) The main reason I got this is to get accurate light readings. After playing with the light meter for a while now. I can say this has been the best purchase I've made in a while. I get better exposures than I have ever had before.A second benefit of this meter is the ability to profile your camera. This will tell you exactly what your camera is capable of capturing. The light meter uses this information to set clipping points for your camera. While shooting landscapes I only have to measure the sky then measure the ground, push the average button and it will tell me if the scene is out of the range of my camera. It makes HDR shooting a breeze.I know I am not using the full potential of this meter. But it is always better to have and not need than to need and not have. Just bite the bullet and get this meter. If you can't afford it, then save up or donate blood, and get the meter. Help other customers find the most helpful reviews  Was this review helpful to you? , February 18, 2011

    Great Light Meter with Faults

    New Sekonic L-478D-U Lightmeter With Exclusive 3-Year Warranty

    Photography (MacGroup)

    The L-478-Series meters are especially useful when using flash to lighten shadows or reduce background detail. That's because they measure ambient and flash simultaneously and automatically indicate the percentage of flash in the total exposure.
    Brightness measurement in Lux or FC and Cd/m2 or FL will make the L-478 a major player on movie sets around the world. Display brightness along with exposure measurements or simply by itself.
    The L-478-series has two motion- capture modes to fit camera in use. Touch to set shutter speeds for HD SLR cameras or quickly select frame rates and shutter angles for Cine.
    Instantly familiar and comfortable to use. Make settings by touching icons or sliding a finger on the screen. The large color LCD displays ambient, flash, cine and other information in a clear and understandable way.
    Special effects and light sources can push standard camera settings to their limits That's why the L-478 also allows creating unique frame rates and shutter angles to .000 to enable precise exposure and lighting.

    Extech LT40 LED Light Meter

    I would buy it again.

    The Extech LT40 LED Light Meter is easy to use and appears to provide reasonable measurements. I say reasonable as i have no good method to determine the true accuracy of the meter, and the readings i get appear within a window of what i would expect for common light sources. I typically use it for readings of 10 foot-candles and below, usually in the 0.3 to 3.0 range, and with LED lighting, induction lighting, and metal halide lights.I performed a couple of measurements in an office environment and compared the readings to a lighting print of the area, and my readings were in the general area of what one would expect for the office area, and compared favorably with architectural lighting prints.The only drawback so far for me is the display is not backlit, so using it in the darker environment I am typically in can present a challenge at times, however, worst case I use the Hold feature and then read the display. Also, since the detector is fixed to the meter... 5/5 Dr. K - See all my reviews Verified Purchase(What's this?)

    I returned my LT45 - Here's why:

    3/5 TT (SLC, UT, USA) - See all my reviews Verified Purchase(What's this?) This review is from: Extech LT45 LED Light Meter (Tools & Home Improvement) The meter's display is not back lit so it is impossible to read at night. The detached measuring head means that two hands are required to operate the unit. So taking notes while making measurements is difficult if not impossible. I returned the unit because I found that it could not be calibrated. Other Extech meters can be calibrated. Why not this one?? It is said to measure colored LED light levels, which is why I ordered it. It simply did not fit my application.
