    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

    Waited too long

    I read a light meter review recently where the reviewer said; "even if you don't think you need a light meter, you do." This is good advice.Three huge advantages come to mind after using this meter once.First, it is a tremendous time saver during the shoot and afterwards in post processing, take a light reading, set your camera to what the meter reads and shoot.Second, repeatability - even if you are shooting low/high key or going for artistic effects; you can reproduce lighting ratios/scenarios you like easily in the future. When you don't have a light meter you can spend countless hours tweaking the power settings on your strobes or multiple shoe mount flash units to get a few shots right.......and when you're done and have packed it all up......the next day, week, month....you have no way to get back to those settings again.Third, better pictures.Having an LCD/preview and histograms are useful but DSLRs, even the most... 5/5 Paul T.

    Excellent meter, but Sekonic approach could be better

    The meter itself is excellent. This meter would have gotten five stars, but for a few things:1) The pouch should have a flap over the top2) The meter cannot measure reflective light without the 5 degree attachment (minor for me, given I was going to buy it anyway for the 5 degree spot)3) Dual complaint between this and the 5 degree attachment - the 5 degree reflective spot attachment comes in a little drawstring pouch. Sekonic should have provided a single pouch with this 478 (or with the 5 degree) that would allow storage of the dome and 5 degree attachment and meter. Why are there two incompatible carrying cases? Comes across as someone not thinking it through.Be aware that you must choose according to whether you currently (or will) use pocket wizards. The 478DR is for that. This 478D cannot be upgraded to pocket wizard capability later, so if you're going to use PW, get the 478DR instead. It's the only difference between the two (well, that and... 4/5 David Stewart (New York City) - See all my reviews, April 6, 2013

    I'm not crazy about it

    I was a happy owner of the Sekonic L-358 Flash meter right up until the day that I dropped it. As I am not a photographer who wishes to rely on my camera for light readings, I knew that I was going to buy a replacement meter. For my needs, I looked between a straight-up replacement of the L-358 and the L-478D. I decided to go for the newer L478D as the newer features struck me as something that I could grow into.My problem with this device is not how well it works but it's design. Quite frankly, I find the touch screen design to be awkward to easily control/use. Versus pressing the buttons and spinning the scroll wheel of the older L-358, the touch screen buttons are small and very easy to mis-touch. It can be frustrating because my thumb all too often covers the reading display while I am trying to get a reading because the display is placed in the center of the scroll arrows.It's not that I am opposed to touch screen control, but this is a device that small... 2/5 Charles Barnes - See all my reviews Verified Purchase(What's this?)

    Great Meter!

    0 5/5 Jaypoc (Long Island, NY USA) - See all my reviews Verified Purchase(What's this?) This review is from: Sekonic Corporation 401-478 LITEMASTER PRO L-478D Photographic Light Meter (Black) (Electronics) I needed a good light meter, and I couldn't be happier with the Sekonic L-478! Since I often shoot with multiple manual speedlights, this has taken a lot of the guesswork and trial and error out of setting up and adjusting the lights. It's enabled me to be consistent with my lighting in different environments. It's small, easy to use, and can be calibrated to match my camera's specifics. I highly recommend this meter! 0 Help other customers find the most helpful reviews  Was this review helpful to you? , February 7, 2014

    (4.2/5)
    Sekonic Corporation

    A classic

    The Sekonic L-208 is the least expensive professional light meter on the market, and has been a standard for years as a result. I have been using mine for over five years. I use numerous older cameras, some of which have no integrated light meters, and the accuracy of those that do is unknown, or they rely on batteries that can not be found, or which are too expensive for the value they would provide. It's easier and, in the long run, cheaper, to master a single external meter that works with all the cameras.Operating the L-208 is simple -- dial in your ISO setting, set the lever to "incident" or "reflected" light, hold the meter where you want to measure the light (pointing at the camera for incident light, or at the target for reflected), and press the button.Pro: it works, and the needle indicates a range of choices, the shutter speeds appropriate for a complete range of apertures. The battery lasts forever. It's small and light.Con: it is too... 4/5 Neurasthenic "neurasthenic" (New York City, New York) - See all my reviews, July 14, 2008

    Great little ambient/reflected light meter

    Though it's EV range doesn't make it great for very low light work, it's great for most "normal" photographic conditions. I've used it as an ambient light meter with my digitals when I want that type of metering, and in both modes with my collection of old film cameras. I also use it to verify the metering of old film camera metering systems when I repair them. Obviously it's not a flash meter.It works well and I carry it all the time in my bag. It seems fragile, but despite being banged around constantly, it continues to function perfectly. It's compact enough to mount on a flash shoe and comes with a piece to do just that.I find the ambient light mode helpful for my slide shooting where I don't trust my cameras internal meters to give me the correct exposure. By getting close in reflected mode (when you can do that) it allows something akin to spot metering.Overall, a nice thing to always have in your bag, taking up little room but giving... 5/5 John W. Griggs - See all my reviews, April 7, 2010

    Poor QA at Sekonic

    Maybe I got a bad one, but I checked this meter against a Sekonic L-328, Canon 7D and Panasonic GF1 and most of the time the reading differed by a stop or more. The Sekonic L-328, 7D and GF1 all were metering within 1/2 stop of each other. The L-208 only agreed with the other meters about 20% of the time. The other 80% of the readings were a stop or more off. Sometimes it read higher, other times it read lower.If this meter consistently read high or low, I could adjust for it. But it was so erratic I returned it.UPDATE::I decided to purchase another L-208 because I really liked the size and the price. The second meter was MUCH more accurate and consistant. It was always within 1/2 stop of the Sekonic L-328. The nice thing about this meter is that it is so small you can fit it in any pocket. When I am shooting with a 120 TLR, I like to travel light. I can hang the L-208 off of the camera strap or stick it in my pocket. No need to bring a... 3/5 Mark Druziak (western ny) - See all my reviews, January 21, 2012

    Great but not the same build quality as the 758 meter

    0 5/5 Lee C Reichel - See all my reviews Verified Purchase(What's this?) This review is from: Sekonic Corporation 401-479 LITEMASTER PRO L-478DR Photographic Light Meter (Black) (Electronics) I own the 758DR meter but thought I could replace it with the 478DR but couldn't understand the price difference between the two. I bought the 478DR and I do like it but the construction is not in the same class as the 758DR. It is easier and faster to use which is great but the labeling for f-stop, shutter speed and menus are smaller and not quite as crisp as I had thought. It will fit in a shirt pocket much better than the 758 and you do not have to fiddle with dials, the 478 is more intuitive. For me, setting the radio channels is much easier on the 478. Remember that it is not equipped with a spot meter like the 758, that has to be purchased separately. I have both meters but the 758 is now gathering dust. 0 Help other customers find the most helpful reviews  Was this review helpful to you? , November 24, 2012

    Received Non-US model

    0 3/5 Chris - See all my reviews Verified Purchase(What's this?) This review is from: Sekonic Corporation 401-479 LITEMASTER PRO L-478DR Photographic Light Meter (Black) (Electronics) This is my first meter and I was very happy with how easy this one is to use except that I could not figure out how to trigger my Pocket Wizard Plus III's. I spent several hours looking online and watching videos and COULD NOT figure out what was going on. Finally, while I was replacing the batteries, I noticed a large "CE"on the back of the meter; it's a Euro meter which does not operate on the same radio frequencies as the US model; therefore, my US purchased PWs don't work. I'm in the process of returning the meter and I will be buying the same model again. Seems like a great meter especially if you use TTL radios or a mix of speed lights, studio lights and want the power of adjusting them individually. If you order this meter, BEFORE YOU DO ANYTHING ELSE, look on the back for "CE". If you see it, put it back in the box and return it. 0 Help other customers find the most helpful reviews  Was this review helpful to you? , June 5, 2013

This review is from: Sekonic Corporation 401-479 LITEMASTER PRO L-478DR Photographic Light Meter (Black) (Electronics) This product is great. There is a bit of a steep learning curve, especially if you are totally new to using light meters. The built-in ability to control Alien Bee studio lights was the main selling point for me. However, this meter can handle about any combination of lighting you can throw at it. Just be cautioned that you should not purchase this meter just days before an important shoot. I think even somewhat experienced photographers will need some practice time to try to get a handle on all that the meter can do. Take the time to learn it, and you will love it. 0 Help other customers find the most helpful reviews  Was this review helpful to you? , May 11, 2013

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.
