It is reliable and right on the money every time. My friends laugh when I pull it out and take readings at the subject but I am the one who laughs last when we show our images. This meter will make you a better photog. Really!If I were forced to find a way to improve the Sekonic L-398 Light Meter it would be to enlarge all of the readings! All of the camera companies have diopters for us blind folks, why can't you make bigger numbers on your meter? I was 23 when I bought it but now I am 45. Please help us blind guys and make bigger numbers on your future products! lol!The Sekonic L-398A Light Meter is total old skool and that is why it works so well. Why spend $700 when you can have everything your need for less than $200? Need another reason to buy this meter? It doesn't need batteries! That make it worth its weight in gold! 0 Help other customers find the most helpful reviews  Was this review helpful to you? , November 5, 2010

    This is a great device for home use

    0 5/5 Luis Feroo - See all my reviews Verified Purchase(What's this?) This review is from: Pyle PLMT21 Handheld Lux Light Meter Photometer with 20000 Lux Range Per Second Sampling and Digital Display (Tools & Home Improvement) 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. 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. I found this lux meter to be completely satisfactory in general. I bought one of these meters several years ago at a much higher price. But between my studio and my home, it's never where I need it. (And I paid a lot more for the old one) So for this price, having the second is great.  0 Help other customers find the most helpful reviews  Was this review helpful to you? , January 13, 2015

    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

    Polaris

    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 Robert Denton "Robert Denton" (Oklahoma) - 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 Verified Purchase(What's this?)

    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

    0 5/5 J. Monterosso (Anchorage ,AK USA) - See all my reviews, January 6, 2013

    Found a Flaw in mine. Can't tell if it's in the design or in mine alone

    0 1/5 Robert O'Matic - See all my reviews Verified Purchase(What's this?) This review is from: Mastech MS6612 Digital Lux / FC Meter with 40-segment Bar Graph, 0-200,000 Lux I purchased the meter due to its stellar reviews, and just received it. Out of the box it has the following flaw:When in auto mode and set to foot candles, if you dim the light to a low reading, then bring it back to a significantly higher light environment, the meter goes to OL 'overload' instead of auto-ranging. It does not do this when set to lux. To get out of the OL indication, all I have to do is switch to lux and then back to foot candles, but if I go dim and then bright with the exteriror light, it goes to OL again.Auto mode should not go into OL or at least not stick there. At this time I can't tell if this is a defect of my individual unit or of the design programming. Right now I'm inclined to believe it's a design problem so those of you who own a recent Mastech MS6612 may be able to duplicate the problem.I have to fail mine due to this flaw. It is not a matter of hate, but a matter of a correctly working product. 0 Help other customers find the most helpful reviews  Was this review helpful to you? , December 4, 2013
