Excerpt: I really like the ease and simplicity of this light meter. However, I brought this quite a few months ago when I had no idea what I was looking for and what my needs were. Would I buy one now,I would look into a meter that I can set the shutter speed to 1/80th of a second (I use that shutter speed most of the time)as oppossed to this light meter that jumps from 1/60th of a sec to 1/125. Besides for the shutter speed issue as mentioned above, I love using this meter!
Pros: Accurate, Compact, Consistent, Lightweight, Strong Construction
Excerpt: This product works as specified. Didn't like the fact it's only shutter priority mode but I knew that going in and it is not to much of a problem to adjust to aperture by using the side buttons. For the price it helps to get the proper exposure in camera on the first shot. It also works well with flash.
Excerpt: I'd been using the same old meter for many years. It worked but I had to almost take out a loan with the 6 watch batteries had to be replaced and it was almost as big as a camera. It was time for a change. I'm very pleased with this little Sekonic meter. It is very small (palm sized), light, accurate, easy to switch between reflected and direct light readings. (I tend to check both.) I seems to be very accurate.
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.
