    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

    High Resolution Light Meter

    0 4/5 BuzzMega - See all my reviews Verified Purchase(What's this?) This review is from: Dr.Meter LX1010B 50,000 Light Meter with LCD Display (Electronics) Four stars for being so good, but so limited in its ability to translate into photographic settings. The meter is great. Very accurate and able to measure 1 lux brightnesses from 1 to 1999, 10 lux jumps from 10 to 19,990 and 100 lux jumps from 100 to 100,000, meaning from micro brighness to way above full noon daylight at the top of Mt. Everest. What's missing is conversion to foot-candles or EV nomenclature. Rules of thumb: 1 foot candle is about 10.75 Lux. 10,000 foot candles (100,000 Lux) lets you shoot a proper exposure with ISO 100 at f/13 with 1/100 sec shutter speed.You'll need an exposure calculator and a table of equivalent exposures to work with it photographically. But if all you want to do is measure light in Lux, you're in business right out of the box. 0 Help other customers find the most helpful reviews  Was this review helpful to you? , June 2, 2014

    It works

    0 4/5 JAMacAlister - See all my reviews Verified Purchase(What's this?) It seems to give valid readings. I don't have access to any other meters to compare but, for reference work, it works just fine for me. On the negative side, I find the shape wrong - I tend to hold it upside down, taking a few seconds to realize all the text is upside down. It should be fatter at the top and skinnier at the bottom like most other devices of this shape. Also, more digits would make this more convenient, instead of switching ranges when needed. However, for the price, I really can't complain. 0 Help other customers find the most helpful reviews  Was this review helpful to you? , September 7, 2011

    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?)

    It's not very good at all!

    The touchscreen is horrible, and this device is not worth 340$ + 110$ spot attachment. This is a ridiculous price for something that can't work out low light. If you shoot dramatic photos, don't bother using this thing. It makes no sense, especially with multiple lights. I couldn't even find a use for it in landscapes, because it just underexposes everything as if that's acceptable. I still wind up shooting until I get the right shot exposed... this thing doesn't fit with my style of photography at all. If it took a reading of several light sources and then gave you the proper setting that might be useful, however it doesnt' do that. It doesn't take away any guesswork, just use your histogram and if your camera has exposure simulation don't even bother. Waste of 450$ for me...Not to mention I returned this once due to the poor packaging, lack of a usb cable, both sets were obviously used and full of dust and scratches. Batteries were not sealed, obviously refurbished... 2/5 Sam (Albuquerque, NM) - See all my reviews Verified Purchase(What's this?)

    Reading is fundamental...

    I was worried after reading the only other two reviews here. But, for $43, I figured it was worth the risk since it's nearly $200 less than the L-308s. I love being pleasantly surprised...First, let's address the other reviews of this product- mainly, that the product does not work.

It is ridiculous that this product has a low rating because people do not understand the difference between the two.To test this unit, I set the meter in front of a Lastolite EZyBalance card, ran a test flash to get a meter reading, set aperture to suggested value (using ISO 100 at 1/250)and took shots of the grey card and then checked the histograms to check exposure.

    Pretty impressed, wonder whats wrong with the other reviewers

    I'm sorta new to off-camera lighting, so I picked up this flash meter for one reason only: its about 4 times cheaper than ANY other flash meter on the market.Ok - the battery door is hard to close, but yes it does indeed close and once it is closed it is closed pretty good. You just have to press the top edge of the battery door shut a with a bit of pressure, before pushing the other end in. Once the top end locks in - the rest will snap right in place.The thing couldn't be easier to use. I've used a digital meter, and this is JUST as a straightforward (maybe more so). Its hard to see from the image how it works - but on that big dial (which you adjust the ISO) the F numbers are printed. You turn on the unit, and it is ready to receive a flash. If you have the flash connected with a pc synch you can just press the flash button on the meter to remotely fire it.

This review is from: Interfit INT410 Studio Flash Meter (Black) (Electronics) Most flash meters are overrated for what they do. They're expensive and over built for the jobs hey're intended for. To the experienced photographer all you want is something that will give you an accurate reading from the light source. That's all . . . forget cumulative exposure readings . . . forget multiple light sources . . . an accurate reading is all you want. The Interfit does that. It's not built to be mishandled. It's not gonna win a "drop me from 3 feet" test. It's not meant to do that. It will give you an accurate reading from the light source and will last for years if handled appropriately.

Szabadság híd (Liberty Bridge) by night, Budapest, Hungary The Liberty Bridge was the third Danube bridge in Budapest. Originaly it was named Franz Joseph bridge. The bridge is 333 meters long and 20 meters wide. The bridge was built between 1894 and 1896. The last - made of silver - rivet was inserted by the emperor Franz Joseph. (It wasn't a difficult job: the emperor hit the button and the steam machine placed the rivet.) Shortly after that, the rivet disappeared. Later it was replaced. The replaced part was covered by protective glass. (Today visitors can only find the protective glass because the replacement rivet also desappeared.) In 1945, during the WWII the Nazis destroyed all Danube bridges of Budapest. The bridge was reconstructed and renamed Liberty Bridge.
