    A Valuable Meter at a Great Price

    Customer Video Review Length:: 8:00 MinsThe Polaris SPD-100 Light Meter comes in this simple unassuming box. The packaging is very unassuming. Inside the box the Polaris SPD-100 comes with a carrying case, a lanyard, and a manual.The meter is a nice size coming in at 2.5 inches wide, 7/8 of an inch thick, and 4 and 11/16 inches tall. The battery door is located on the back. The meter uses a standard AA battery.When you turn on the meter the first thing the it does is a battery check. It shows this information for about a second. This is nice because if you are about to start a complex and lengthy shoot, you can just change out the battery rather than having to stop the process (model, assistant, etc.) and restart after changing a battery. Also, if the meter does run out of batteries, the meter will save your most recent settings as it does when you turn it off and back on. Another nice thing about this meter is that it automatically turns itself off after 5 minutes of... 5/5 Amazon Customer (California) - See all my reviews Verified Purchase(What's this?)

    Terrific studio meter for the price

    I have one of these that I use regularly with my studio flash setup.Inexpensive high-power studio flashes generally don't work with your camera's TTL metering system, and when you bring in multiple lights, complex diffusers and so forth, calculating exposure gets to be a challenge. With the Polaris, I setup my lighting the way I want, fire the flashes (either one at a time or all at once), and the meter gives me correct exposure information that's always 100% spot on. It can also help me achieve certain specific lighting ratios, such as making sure the background is subdued or helping me know one part of my subject isn't in too-deep shadows - in effect, you just fire the flash a few times, metering all the key parts and noting how far apart the exposures are. For calculating studio flash exposure, the Polaris can't be beat, especially considering the price.Of course, these days you can achieve good results with digital cameras by simply taking lots of test... 5/5 Busy Executive (Long Island, NY) - See all my reviews, February 17, 2010

    Essential if you want to shoot better photos

    Customer Video Review Length:: 5:05 MinsFor more than 30 years, I have loved photography. I've bought just about every type of camera and gadget you can think of, but for some reason I didn't own a light meter until I saw this one in action. I guess I never thought I needed one. I was wrong. Having a light meter takes your photography to a new level.Since exposure is controlled by three distinct variables... ISO, aperture and shutter speed, many hobbyists usually take control of whichever they feel is most important for their specific shot. They may need a fast shutter for moving subjects, or a wide aperture for artistic shots, but they still leave the camera to decide the other variables.The trouble with this is that they base their estimates for the other two variables on a fundamentally flawed premise, which is assuming what they see in the lens has an accurate correlation to the actual light in a shot, however, this is not always the case.If you walked... 5/5 Joe Crescenzi "From CouponPages.Com" (Staten Island, NY USA) - See all my reviews, January 12, 2013

    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

    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

    Makes a photographer's life simple.

    0 5/5 Randy E. Blue - 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 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

    This is a Digital Light Meter not a photographic exposure meter

    I find this inexpensive meter extremely useful for assessing lighting conditions at venues where I am taking photographs and videos. That said this is not a photographic exposure or flash meter and unfortunately if you are purchasing it as an inexpensive substitute to use for that purpose you will be disappointed.This meter gives you a simple to understand Lux reading corresponding to the brightness in the room. Our eyes are amazing self adjusting optical miracles... they compensate for conditions so much that we often have a difficult time judging just how light or dark conditions really are.Modern cameras and video cameras have sophisticated reflective light meters built into them and if used in an auto or semi-auto mode they will adjust the images we take for overall brightness. They will also predict whether the exposure will be under or over-exposed in manual as compared to a photo that is an even 18% gray. Very few people use traditional exposure... 5/5 S. G.

    Works great, but it helps if you have some experience/understanding of how light meters work.

    0 5/5 Stickman (Virtually everywhere.) - See all my reviews This review is from: Dr.Meter New Digital Light Meter 0.1 Lux - 200,000 Lux Tester FC Photo Camera Luxmeter It does come with an "instruction manual" but it's a small piece of paper folded into a "booklet." But I really didn't need it, most of the controls are self-evident. The only thing that is needed is the weighting of the sensor so you can make corrections if needed based on the color/wavelength of the light you are comparing. My only complaint is that the weighting chart is literally 1 inch square. ie, tiny. It's "A" weighted to follow human sight, meaning yellow light is registered the strongest. If you are comparing apples to apples you should be fine. For the price, it can't be beat. There was a time when a meter like this was $400.PS. I would not use this for photography. There are much better meters that are better suited to photography. 0 Help other customers find the most helpful reviews  Was this review helpful to you? , April 26, 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.
