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.
Excerpt: I use this meter with my photography and videography. Works really well and it's very accuarate.The only thing negative I have to say is, I wish there was a mode button to swith from video light metering to photography light metering on the fly withought going through powering off the unit to switch the modes.
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. I'm confident this meter will help me do so. I know there is a majority of shooters who think a light meter is extraneous, and possibly for video this may be the case.
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. The menu system is also not very intuitive, so definitely read the instructions closely.
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. Also serves as a learning tool and later for confimation of your estimated camera settings. No guessing in manual camera mode.
Excerpt: It is lightweight, compact and very easy to use. Take 1 AA battery, which is very easy to find anywhere in the world. I shoot both digital and with film, so this is a very helpful addition to the tool bag. I would recommend it to any one who is serious about taking and learning to take better pictures.
Pros: Accurate Reading, Compact, Easy To Use, Lightweight, Reliable, Widely Available Battery
Excerpt: L-308DC DigiCineMate by Sekonic is a small, lightweight compact light meter and gets the job done. Nice compact meter with all the functions I use for still, film and DSLR shooting and came with a silicone case as a gift
