Summary: I just started with flashes, and this helps out a lot. i can see in the future, where I wouldn't need this, but for now, it's great. A bit expensive, but oh well, this isn't a cheap hobby anyway.
Pros: Accurate, Compact, Consistent, Lightweight, Strong Construction
Summary: This light meter does a very good job for the price, it's easy to use, easy to navigate, and has the basic modes needed for most situations in photography. I use this light meter in studio photography of portraits and groups of dancers and it works great for my studio set up. I wish it had remote flash trigering, but then again the price is great.
Summary: This is my first flash meter and I really like how simple and uncomplicated this thing is. Very easy to use and helps to get accurate exposures very quickly. The only thing I don't like is that it only reads in full stops and it would be nice to have a little more room for fine adjustments.
Pros: Compact, Consistent, Lightweight, Strong Construction
Summary: I'm pretty new to using a meter, so I can't say how accurate this does or does not meter. I can say that my exposures come out looking quite nice, though. I was a little frustrated that this jumped right past 1/200th sec to 1/250th as I scrolled through the settings. However, I figured out that you can change a setting to allow for more speed options, so I was able to get it to 1/200th, which is the max synch speed for my D80 (my only disappointment with the camera, by...
Summary: Great lightmeter, small and light. the cord is too long for me, but the protective sheath is perfect as it grip on.user friendly. not as sturdy as hoped, have to be pretty careful with the lumishpere without sheath. easier if the case attached. otherwise satisfied with purchase.
Summary: I use this light meter in the studio, and out in the field. I am very pleased with its accuracy. It is very easy to use, small for travel, and sold for a reasonable price. My only complaint is that the cap for the sync cord plug is not attached to the unit, so you have this tiny cap that you need to keep somewhere while you shoot. I shove in my pocket for now, waiting for it to get lost.
Summary: I use it primarily as a spot meter. The exposure settings it gives are very reliable. It's one of the best lights meter you can get for your money, however it still feels like a [$] toy cellphone... not a [$] piece of equipment.
Summary: I bought this about a year ago. I wanted a small meter tohave around in my bag for mainly ambient. I have howeverhave used it a lot for flash work inside for portraits, itsproven accurate. It does require close attention to whereyour spotting, it will vary range, so make sure you spotexactly where you are for all photos to keep consistency. Conclusion: Great meter to start out with, or carry a verysmall accurate meter around to have.
