    Mastech

    General purpose lux meter, does very well

    This is a great device for home use; it has decent accuracy and performs its function, and its cheapness comes from the thin, low quality plastic case that probably won't take kindly to drops. A similar device with a resolution to 1 lux will cost anywhere from 3-30x this device; costly ones are calibrated against a standard lab, and most costly have resolutions below 1 lux. Cheapo ones are not calibrated such as this 1010b.Some clarifications from criticism made on other reviews: lux meters are made to approximate the brightness of light as it appears to human vision. Its is not an exposure meter for photography, but with formulas, conversions can be made. Human color vision can go down to ~ 0.03 lux, and most lux meters are designed for industrial use to estimate how much lighting a human work environment should have; ~ 0.3 lux is the brightness of a full moon illuminating a dark night [ no light pollution from any man made sources] a light that few will ever read or... 5/5 James Q.

    Good, But Lacking On The Low End Of The Scale

    0 4/5 Stuart Steele (Austin, TX) - See all my reviews Verified Purchase(What's this?) This review is from: Light Meter LX1010B,50,000 Lux Luxmeter with lcd display (Tools & Home Improvement) I found this lux meter to be completely satisfactory in general. What I did not understand from the description is that the lux scale is an integer scale, and the lowest that the meter reads in 1 lux, which is still pretty bright. This is through no fault of the product, but I had hoped for a meter that read fractional lux. 0 Help other customers find the most helpful reviews  Was this review helpful to you? , May 8, 2009

    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

    INVALUABLE IF YOU ARE GOING TO SHOOT VIDEO...

    0 5/5 Amazon Customer - See all my reviews This review is from: Mastech MS6612 Digital Lux / FC Meter with 40-segment Bar Graph, 0-200,000 Lux There are a million light meters, and almost as many styles. They have been around for at least 60 years, and they are still used today by professionals.I shoot video with DSLRs, and I spent a fair amount of time trying and buying different meters to use for video shoots. This Mastech is BY FAR the best designed and most affordable meter I've ever seen, especially for shooting video.I use my meter on every shoot, and considering I paid less than $50 new, it was (and is) a steal!Plus, it's built like a tank, and very accurate.NOTE: It has a very handy mount for a camera tripod on the back too, so I carry one of those little flip-out tripods to mount and mark locations with it.T 0 Help other customers find the most helpful reviews  Was this review helpful to you? , June 21, 2013

    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

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.
