    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

    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.

    It works

    0 4/5 JAMacAlister - See all my reviews Verified Purchase(What's this?) It seems to give valid readings. I don't have access to any other meters to compare but, for reference work, it works just fine for me. On the negative side, I find the shape wrong - I tend to hold it upside down, taking a few seconds to realize all the text is upside down. It should be fatter at the top and skinnier at the bottom like most other devices of this shape. Also, more digits would make this more convenient, instead of switching ranges when needed. However, for the price, I really can't complain. 0 Help other customers find the most helpful reviews  Was this review helpful to you? , September 7, 2011

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

    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

    Reading is fundamental...

    I was worried after reading the only other two reviews here. But, for $43, I figured it was worth the risk since it's nearly $200 less than the L-308s. I love being pleasantly surprised...First, let's address the other reviews of this product- mainly, that the product does not work.

It is ridiculous that this product has a low rating because people do not understand the difference between the two.To test this unit, I set the meter in front of a Lastolite EZyBalance card, ran a test flash to get a meter reading, set aperture to suggested value (using ISO 100 at 1/250)and took shots of the grey card and then checked the histograms to check exposure.

    Pretty impressed, wonder whats wrong with the other reviewers

    I'm sorta new to off-camera lighting, so I picked up this flash meter for one reason only: its about 4 times cheaper than ANY other flash meter on the market.Ok - the battery door is hard to close, but yes it does indeed close and once it is closed it is closed pretty good. You just have to press the top edge of the battery door shut a with a bit of pressure, before pushing the other end in. Once the top end locks in - the rest will snap right in place.The thing couldn't be easier to use. I've used a digital meter, and this is JUST as a straightforward (maybe more so). Its hard to see from the image how it works - but on that big dial (which you adjust the ISO) the F numbers are printed. You turn on the unit, and it is ready to receive a flash. If you have the flash connected with a pc synch you can just press the flash button on the meter to remotely fire it.

This review is from: Interfit INT410 Studio Flash Meter (Black) (Electronics) Most flash meters are overrated for what they do. They're expensive and over built for the jobs hey're intended for. To the experienced photographer all you want is something that will give you an accurate reading from the light source. That's all . . . forget cumulative exposure readings . . . forget multiple light sources . . . an accurate reading is all you want. The Interfit does that. It's not built to be mishandled. It's not gonna win a "drop me from 3 feet" test. It's not meant to do that. It will give you an accurate reading from the light source and will last for years if handled appropriately.

This review is from: Sekonic Corporation 401-479 LITEMASTER PRO L-478DR Photographic Light Meter W/Case (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

    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 W/Case (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

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...

    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
