    Samll accurate lightmeter you can take everywhere

    0 5/5 BruceL "BruceL" (San Francisco Bay) - See all my reviews Verified Purchase(What's this?) This review is from: Sekonic L-308s Light Meter - Black (Electronics) When I started to look for a new lightmeter, I want something small, reliable, accurate, and can do ambient and flash. This little meter is not the most feature rich, but definitely one of the smaller more compact ones. And there is nothing that will break, unlike some of the units with swivel head. I have used Gossen LunaPro SBC, which is excellent for extreme low light, but a bit bulkier and lack flash capability. I have also used Minolta Flashmeter III and Sekonic L-328. There are definitely other meters out there that can do more tricks, but the small size and low cost of this meter enable me to carry it everywhere. After all, a meter used in the field is better than a meter left in storage. 0 Help other customers find the most helpful reviews  Was this review helpful to you? , October 15, 2008

    This is a great device for home use

    0 5/5 Luis Feroo - See all my reviews Verified Purchase(What's this?) This review is from: Pyle PLMT21 Handheld Lux Light Meter Photometer with 20000 Lux Range Per Second Sampling and Digital Display (Tools & Home Improvement) 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. 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. I found this lux meter to be completely satisfactory in general. I bought one of these meters several years ago at a much higher price. But between my studio and my home, it's never where I need it. (And I paid a lot more for the old one) So for this price, having the second is great.  0 Help other customers find the most helpful reviews  Was this review helpful to you? , January 13, 2015

    Inexpensive photometer

    0 4/5 Roger the Consultant (San Diego) - See all my reviews Verified Purchase(What's this?) This review is from: Extech LT300 Light Meter (Tools & Home Improvement) Inexpensive light meter that is worth the price. Only issues are 1 - readings drift up in value over a few minutes and 2 - no calibration certificate of any sort. A NIST certificate would be pretty pricy, however some sort indication of calibration would be nice. I compared this unit for stability under indoor lighting next to my International Light photometer. The Extech drifted significantly more than the other meter. Then again it costs a fraction as much and is portable. 0 Help other customers find the most helpful reviews  Was this review helpful to you? , December 9, 2013

    0 4/5 EEL - See all my reviews Verified Purchase(What's this?) This review is from: Extech LT300 Light Meter (Tools & Home Improvement) The Extech LT300 was recommended by a co-worker. I am in the commercial/industrial LED lighting business and need to do lighting audits for prospective clients. This device is very easy to use and understand, and the results are very consistent. I only wish it had a backlight for the display to make reading it easier. I recommend this meter. 0 Help other customers find the most helpful reviews  Was this review helpful to you? , June 1, 2013

    INVALUABLE IF YOU ARE GOING TO SHOOT VIDEO...

    0 5/5 Amazon Customer - See all my reviews This review is from: Mastech MS6612 Digital Lux / FC Meter with 40-segment Bar Graph, 0-200,000 Lux There are a million light meters, and almost as many styles. They have been around for at least 60 years, and they are still used today by professionals.I shoot video with DSLRs, and I spent a fair amount of time trying and buying different meters to use for video shoots. This Mastech is BY FAR the best designed and most affordable meter I've ever seen, especially for shooting video.I use my meter on every shoot, and considering I paid less than $50 new, it was (and is) a steal!Plus, it's built like a tank, and very accurate.NOTE: It has a very handy mount for a camera tripod on the back too, so I carry one of those little flip-out tripods to mount and mark locations with it.T 0 Help other customers find the most helpful reviews  Was this review helpful to you? , June 21, 2013

    MS66 12 Digital Meter

    0 5/5 J. Monterosso (Anchorage ,AK USA) - See all my reviews, January 6, 2013

    Found a Flaw in mine. Can't tell if it's in the design or in mine alone

    0 1/5 Robert O'Matic - See all my reviews Verified Purchase(What's this?) This review is from: Mastech MS6612 Digital Lux / FC Meter with 40-segment Bar Graph, 0-200,000 Lux I purchased the meter due to its stellar reviews, and just received it. Out of the box it has the following flaw:When in auto mode and set to foot candles, if you dim the light to a low reading, then bring it back to a significantly higher light environment, the meter goes to OL 'overload' instead of auto-ranging. It does not do this when set to lux. To get out of the OL indication, all I have to do is switch to lux and then back to foot candles, but if I go dim and then bright with the exteriror light, it goes to OL again.Auto mode should not go into OL or at least not stick there. At this time I can't tell if this is a defect of my individual unit or of the design programming. Right now I'm inclined to believe it's a design problem so those of you who own a recent Mastech MS6612 may be able to duplicate the problem.I have to fail mine due to this flaw. It is not a matter of hate, but a matter of a correctly working product. 0 Help other customers find the most helpful reviews  Was this review helpful to you? , December 4, 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.
