Excerpt: Nice little meter, vary basic in its abilities and it is based on shutter speed. I'm pretty new to using a light meter and this is the perfect one to start with. Functional, accurate and low cost compared to the big boys.
Excerpt: The L-308S is a good basic flash/ambient meter. I've owned a previous similar model, as well as a high-end Sekonic, and have found them to generally be reliable, and probably as durable as can be expected for a light meter. I don't use a meter much anymore, and this one serves my needs perfectly.
Excerpt: This is a fairly small but accurate meter. It tucks nicely in my bag, is quick and handy to whip out for a reading or two, and is simple to use. My only complaint is that it has a cheap plastic feel, where you get that creaky, slightly hollow plastic sort of feel when you hold it.
Excerpt: This is good first meter for portraits and some general landscapes. If you need more accurate readings for landscapes or have the abililty to sync with your studio lights then you need to step up to a more full function meter. But this meter works great for its size and functions.
Excerpt: This light meter has all the features of more expensive models. The drawback is that the construction is a little on the delicate side. But, I tend to keep good care of my photo stuff so I suspect it will provide me with years of service.
