    Excellent Light Meter

    0 5/5 iPP - See all my reviews This Sekonic L-358 light meter is an excellent meter. I have fallen in love with it. Lots of Today's 35mm SLR camera meters are TTL Meters (reflected light measurement meters). Sekonic L-358 is such a high precision instrument which measures incident, reflected, flash (cord & cordless). I got great digital photos after I have used the reading on 2 different cameras under normal & Flash lights.The pictures are great out of your camera and do not require any editing if used properly according to the instructions. I like the built in Memory function to store readings, Shutter Priority, Aperture Priority, 2 ISO functions, Weather proof Seal, Can include optional radio transmitter + receiver modules to wirelessly trigger flash units, So far Battery Life has been Good. This meter does not use "AA" it uses CR-123A so you will have to always carry one spare with you. 0 Help other customers find the most helpful reviews  Was this review helpful to you? , June 10, 2005

    My first handheld meter-works great.

    I bought this meter because I bought a manual focus lens for my Nikon D50. This camera body does not meter with the old manual lenses. After a week of using it, I can say it performs well. It offers incident and reflected measurements. However, to switch from incident to reflected, you have to take off the lumisphere and mount the lumigrid. It offers shutter and aperture priority modes. I prefer aperture priority-choose an aperture, and the meter selects a shutter speed. You can choose 2 ISO settings. The meter will stay on ISO 1 until you push ISO 2 for a brief reading. When you let go of the ISO 2 button, it goes back to ISO 1. The Sekonic L-358 also does flash metering(reflected and incident). This is helpful to me because my D50 will not do TTL flash with my older flash units-Nikon SB-80DX. It has flash corded mode-connect flash and meter with sync cord. It also has cordless flash mode. When you press the measurement button, you will have up to 90 seconds to fire the... 5/5 Bill "Bill" (Houston TX) - See all my reviews This review is from: Sekonic L-358 Flash Master Light Meter - 401-358 (Accessory) I bought this meter because I bought a manual focus lens for my Nikon D50.

    A Valuable Meter at a Great Price

    Customer Video Review Length:: 8:00 MinsThe Polaris SPD-100 Light Meter comes in this simple unassuming box. The packaging is very unassuming. Inside the box the Polaris SPD-100 comes with a carrying case, a lanyard, and a manual.The meter is a nice size coming in at 2.5 inches wide, 7/8 of an inch thick, and 4 and 11/16 inches tall. The battery door is located on the back. The meter uses a standard AA battery.When you turn on the meter the first thing the it does is a battery check. It shows this information for about a second. This is nice because if you are about to start a complex and lengthy shoot, you can just change out the battery rather than having to stop the process (model, assistant, etc.) and restart after changing a battery. Also, if the meter does run out of batteries, the meter will save your most recent settings as it does when you turn it off and back on. Another nice thing about this meter is that it automatically turns itself off after 5 minutes of... 5/5 Robert Denton "Robert Denton" (Oklahoma) - See all my reviews Verified Purchase(What's this?)

    Terrific studio meter for the price

    I have one of these that I use regularly with my studio flash setup.Inexpensive high-power studio flashes generally don't work with your camera's TTL metering system, and when you bring in multiple lights, complex diffusers and so forth, calculating exposure gets to be a challenge. With the Polaris, I setup my lighting the way I want, fire the flashes (either one at a time or all at once), and the meter gives me correct exposure information that's always 100% spot on. It can also help me achieve certain specific lighting ratios, such as making sure the background is subdued or helping me know one part of my subject isn't in too-deep shadows - in effect, you just fire the flash a few times, metering all the key parts and noting how far apart the exposures are. For calculating studio flash exposure, the Polaris can't be beat, especially considering the price.Of course, these days you can achieve good results with digital cameras by simply taking lots of test... 5/5 Busy Executive (Long Island, NY) - See all my reviews, February 17, 2010

    Essential if you want to shoot better photos

    Customer Video Review Length:: 5:05 MinsFor more than 30 years, I have loved photography. I've bought just about every type of camera and gadget you can think of, but for some reason I didn't own a light meter until I saw this one in action. I guess I never thought I needed one. I was wrong. Having a light meter takes your photography to a new level.Since exposure is controlled by three distinct variables... ISO, aperture and shutter speed, many hobbyists usually take control of whichever they feel is most important for their specific shot. They may need a fast shutter for moving subjects, or a wide aperture for artistic shots, but they still leave the camera to decide the other variables.The trouble with this is that they base their estimates for the other two variables on a fundamentally flawed premise, which is assuming what they see in the lens has an accurate correlation to the actual light in a shot, however, this is not always the case.If you walked... 5/5 Joe Crescenzi "From CouponPages.Com" (Staten Island, NY USA) - See all my reviews Verified Purchase(What's this?)

    General purpose lux meter, does very well

    This is a great device for home use; it has decent accuracy and performs its function, and its cheapness comes from the thin, low quality plastic case that probably won't take kindly to drops. A similar device with a resolution to 1 lux will cost anywhere from 3-30x this device; costly ones are calibrated against a standard lab, and most costly have resolutions below 1 lux. Cheapo ones are not calibrated such as this 1010b.Some clarifications from criticism made on other reviews: lux meters are made to approximate the brightness of light as it appears to human vision. Its is not an exposure meter for photography, but with formulas, conversions can be made. Human color vision can go down to ~ 0.03 lux, and most lux meters are designed for industrial use to estimate how much lighting a human work environment should have; ~ 0.3 lux is the brightness of a full moon illuminating a dark night [ no light pollution from any man made sources] a light that few will ever read or... 5/5 James Q.

This review is from: Light Meter LX1010B,50,000 Lux Luxmeter with lcd display (Tools & Home Improvement) I found this lux meter to be completely satisfactory in general. What I did not understand from the description is that the lux scale is an integer scale, and the lowest that the meter reads in 1 lux, which is still pretty bright. This is through no fault of the product, but I had hoped for a meter that read fractional lux. 0 Help other customers find the most helpful reviews  Was this review helpful to you? , May 8, 2009

Speed of Light Sun in Blue Circle Tshirt

physics, atom, science, mathematics, geek, geeky,
The first true measurement of light-speed came in 1676 by a fellow named Olaf Roemer. He noted that the time elapsed between eclipses of Jupiter with its moons became shorter as the Earth moved closer to Jupiter and became longer as the Earth and Jupiter drew farther apart. This anomalous behavior could be accounted for by a finite speed of light. He calculated that the speed of light was something like 2.14 x 10^8 meters per second. This measurement, considering its antiquity, method of measurement, and 17th century uncertainty in exactly how far Jupiter was from the Earth, is surprisingly close to the modern value of 2.99792458 x 10^8 meters per second. These modern values are obtained using devices called laser interferometers, which can very precicely pin down speeds and distances.
