Still my favorite meter

  • Excerpt: I love this thing. I was first trained on a Sekonic Studio Deluxe about 5 years ago when I first started working in television. Now, as a Gaffer I use this thing about everyday on set and I get compliments about my old-school ways. But, of course the best thing is NO BATTERIES NEEDED!

Excellent little meter

22 August 2014
  • Excerpt: This was the light meter we used back in college, and to be honest, I didn't quite grasp it back then. I'm not quite sure why, it's not nearly as complicated as I remembered! This little fella is nice and accurate, and feels very sturdy as well. I expect it to last a good, long time.

Classic design, and fun to use

Miguel, B&H Photo
15 January 2014
  • Excerpt: I purchased this to use with an old Hasselblad that did not have a built-in meter. It's my first handheld meter, and found it fairly easy to use after watching a few "how-to" videos on the web. I still find myself checking against my cameras with built-in meters when I'm not sure.

Best Back-Up Ever

Dan Johnson, B&H Photo
9 July 2013
  • Excerpt: For Tilt/Shift lenses you need a spare light meter, I find my self useing this more than the battery powered light meter I pair it with on site, it might have something to do with me sending an assistant to get readings with the proper slide installed but I don't want to kill the batteries on my 478...
