    Sekonic Corporation

    Good, but with disappointingly cheap construction

    checkbox OR radio OR dropdownI don't have a lot of experience with meters, so all I can say is that this seems to work well. Putting it into to flash metering mode gives you a 90 second window during which you can continually manually trigger and measure you flash. This seems like one of those features manufacturers remove to make you want to upgrade, but I think it actually works quite well, assuming you've got a radio trigger with test button, which if you're contemplating a light meter, you probably do.I only give three stars because I'm really bummed by the build quality, specifically of the little white dome. You can slide it left and right to change the type of metering (reflective/incident) but the construction feels like a cheap plastic toy. It takes nothing at all to flip it out of position, and more than once I've been getting wonky readings only to find I've knocked the dome out of place just taking it out of my pocket.For the price you... 3/5 Dennis (NEWMARKET, NH, United States) - See all my reviews, June 23, 2014

    Sekonic Light Meter Works Faster then Experimenting.

    Sekonic Light Meter does just what I want, for off camera flash exposure mode with just a test, reflective light mode, available light mode, Just set your ISO and Shutter speed that your going to use, and it will give you the f/stop, and your ready to set your camera for your image. Recommended to set your EV steps to 1/3 stops as the same used in camera, (when first time to set up the meter.) Also recommended for doing your settings in manual mode (working in manual.) Comes with a neck strap for easy carry. Some photographers think that this is just another gadget... As they say they don't need one. True, if you experiment with your settings to find the correct exposure for your image. To me it finds the correct exposure faster then experimenting around, and saves time. Can be used for night photography also as the shutter speed go way down past tripod use. Very handy to use, and I love the way it works, easy to use, I think it's worth the money..

    Dr.Meter

    Worth the small price you pay for this meter.

    There are more accurate and expensive light meters out there. I bought this to compare the different brands of head light bulbs for my car; I swear my Honda has the worst bulbs ever.I do not know how accurate or if the meter is spot on. I have no way of testing it, I’m not doing photography. I am comparing the value it reads on each headlight. Just testing the mounted bulbs performance in my car.For my requirements this did a great job.Side Note: We upgraded our lights at work from 80 fixtures of regular LED’s to 35 fixtures of High Intensity LED’s, less than half of the light fixtures are now required and the light gain was amazing. I didn’t take it to work to check the old LED’s vs new LED’s but went into another similar section was able to use the lux meter to show how bad the halogen fixtures are compared to the new LED’s.Before we change out the other section of older LED’s and halogens to the new LED’s... 5/5 Edward (king of Prussia, PA, United States) - See all my reviews, October 28, 2016

    Useful gadget

    It's a lux meter, and it does what it's supposed to - measure illumination of a surface in lux. It's not certified calibrated like the more expensive models, but it gives me repeatable results that come close to known values, and that's good enough for my intended use. I like that the sensor is separate from the display, it allows me to place each part where it's most useful. It also thoughtfully comes with a soft case, something many more expensive products don't include. However the case does not match the one pictured here. It's some generic soft case which this meter just happens to fit.Being a generic Chinese product, the build quality is not exactly stellar. The two shortcomings I noticed is that the battery slot cover doesn't hold securely, and the display has a plastic film over it with some minor scuff marks. It's not clear if the plastic film should be removed or not, so I just leave it on and it doesn't detract from the usefulness of the product.

    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.

    Small and lightweight

    5/5 5T1CK5 - See all my reviews Verified Purchase(What's this?) This review is from: Extech LT40 LED Light Meter (Tools & Home Improvement) I use these for restaurant inspections as a health inspector. It is small enough and light so I don't mind carrying it in my tool bag everyday. It's a luxury item, because most inspectors could care less about proper light levels when there are so many facilities with bad food temps. I mainly use it on new construction, when they have the ability to make adjustments more easily. Works well.

    Very good "cheap" digital light meter

    I got this for checking lighting levels (not photography, but say office, hallway, etc.). It's a great little unit, although a little on the cheap side -- cheap, thin, plastic and so-so fit together parts which probably won't last long but long enough for occasional use. The display is exceptionally big and easy-to-read, and there is an optional back light. Unlike similar, inexpensive products, it does come with a 9V battery so that, when you get it, you can use it right away. It displays a reading about every 1/2 second and is repeatable enough. There are buttons for range and for lux or footcandles, but they don't remember, so you have to do a little series of buttons on each time you turn it on. It defaults to the highest sensitivity which is usually an over-range condition on startup. Overall, I like it, as I didn't want to have a two-handed device with a dangling light meter that requires two hands all the time. Not having to hassle with finding a battery was another... 4/5 Bud - See all my reviews Verified Purchase(What's this?)

    A handy and accurate lux meter - very useful range

    This lux meter is terrific. I am using it to check light levels because I'm am ridiculously light sensitive (it's a medical condition). It is wonderful to be able to measure the full range of light from dim light bulb to full sunlight. The meter is accurate for the full range although it conks out at the highest level of sunlight (full noon sun - clear California sky). For the average person (me), it doesn't matter. But the meter helps me figure out when I need curtains full time as the light changes throughout the year.I also collect houseplants and it is terrific to check the light levels and place the plants accordingly. The meter is very sensitive, if I need 10 more lux of light then by golly it will find the spot.To obtain a stable reading, you need to set the meter down on something solid. This can affect the reading because there is a difference in lux between table height and floor height when the light is dim.I haven't done it but if you... 5/5 Lindy (Bay Area, CA) - See all my reviews Verified Purchase(What's this?)

This review is from: Dr.meter LX1010B Digital Illuminance/Light Meter, 0 - 100,000 Lux Luxmeter (Electronics) Great product at a great price! This meter takes the guess work out of the equation. You really don't know how much light you have until you test it. I took for granted what many people said was the correct amount of lumens or watts/sq ft and so on for the application. After I got the meter, I learned they were wrong. By following the advice of others, I wasted electricity, time, money and ultimately ended up having to step down my lighting to correct the problem. I followed what the majority recommended only to learn the few people that were saying it was overkill were correct. It's like one person gave miss-information and the others repeated the lie to be fact. Test it, Test it, Test it!

    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

    Easy and efficient

    5/5 PistolShrimp (Chandler,AZ) - See all my reviews Verified Purchase(What's this?) This review is from: Extech LT300-NIST Light Meter with Nist (Tools & Home Improvement) Purchased this product since i needed a calibrated meter for work and it works flawlessly. The active readout is awesome with the ability to have the reception dome stretched away from the meter. We purchased the calibrated version and received the proper documentation with it. Great product and easy to use. Help other customers find the most helpful reviews  Was this review helpful to you? , September 19, 2016
