    Very accurate readings

    Customer Video Review Length:: 2:15 Mins We tested this unit against one of our current meters that came from a local photo shop. That meter we paid a lot more for than the price of this unit. Interestingly the readings we nearly identical testing them side by side. I think I even like this meter more just because of the larger screen size. The meter needs a 9 volt battery (not included) to operate. The display on the large screen is very easy to read even in dimmer lighting. The unit is not as complicated as my pro grade unit nor does it offer as many features. However, if you are just looking for simple light measurements than this unit is perfect for you. I like that it has a "hold" button to lock your reading. I also really like the removable cover protecting the light sensor from damage during storage. Nice unit for a very reasonable price.We are trying to improve our reviews....So, if you find this review not helpful, please take a moment to comment why... 5/5 Connor M.

    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.

    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?)

    Excellent Light Meter

    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. 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.

    Inexpensive photometer

    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. Help other customers find the most helpful reviews  Was this review helpful to you? , December 9, 2013

    If you shoot off-camera flash outdoors, you NEED this.

    5/5 Amazon Customer - See all my reviews Verified Purchase(What's this?) This review is from: New Sekonic L-478DR-U Lightmeter With Exclusive USA Radio Frequency And Exclusive 3-Year Warranty (Electronics) I got into off-camera flash years ago and have been using the Zach Arias and David Hobby (strobist) method of guessing an exposure and dialing it in. I didn't realize how many test shots I had to do and how much time I wasted during shoots trying to get "the look". Literally the first shot I took using this meter was a perfect exposure, dark dramatic clouds in the background and perfectly exposed skin tones.I haven't had a chance to take it on a senior photo shoot yet, but I'm positive this will speed up the entire process. I can't recommend this product enough if you are shooting off-camera flash/strobes outdoors. Help other customers find the most helpful reviews  Was this review helpful to you? , March 30, 2016
    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.
    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.
    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.
    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.
