    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

    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

    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.

    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

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.
