easy to use

  • Excerpt: I am fairly new to returning to having the camera settings on manual (some 40yrs ago was the last time) and so after reading reviews I believe that this particular meter would be more than reliable and adequate. I find it to be easy to use and so far I have not had any issues whatsoever.
  • Pros: Easy Setup, Efficient

Great to team with Blackmagic Cine Cam

  • Excerpt: The light meter works very well. It has settings for ISO and Shutter Angle, which makes it great to use with a BMPCC. The meter is inexpensive so it is a bit fragile. As far as readings, this meter is as good as any I have used.
  • Pros: Easy Setup

Up'ing my game

19 April 2014
  • Excerpt: I bought this to up my game and to learn. Instead of "faking it," relying on the camera / histogram to make exposure decisions, or having to load footage in my laptop during each shoot's setup, I wanted a tool that was smart and would help me become faster, smarter and more accurate.
  • Pros: Easy To Use, Leading Brand, Lightweight
  • Cons: Not Durable

Decent light meter

18 February 2014
  • Excerpt: The product quality, as mentioned previously, is somewhat cheap. The light meter performs as it should for the most part. It seems to choose a slightly higher F stop than is visually appealing. I often need to stop down more than what is measured. Maybe just a calibration issue.
  • Pros: Easy To Use, Lightweight
  • Cons: Feels cheap, Needs Calibration

Fine For Photo

Grecco, B&H Photo
3 February 2014
  • Excerpt: As others have said it is light. Use care when handling. Ding one star for that. Otherwise tool allows for perfect exposure quickly. Mine came with case and it will stay on. Pricey but the pics are spot on and require far less developing.
  • Pros: Lightweight
