Spot Viewfinder for Sekonic L-478

BikeMan, B&H Photo
28 December 2015
  • Excerpt: Still learning how to use it, but seems easy enough to attach and detach. Many people comment on the fact that it is hard to find a place to keep it. Would have also been nice if it would have come with the light meter. Not sure why it cost so much.

Good bud overpriced and awkward to carry

  • Excerpt: Performs great, but should be able to remain attached/stored on the meter when not in use. Also a bit overpriced.

Necessary add-on

  • Excerpt: The L-478DR light meter is arguably the best, easiest to use meter available, but it has one limitation: It cannot measure reflected light. This viewfinder rrplaces the ambient light dome and allows you to measure reflected light. It's an absolute necessity for landscape photography.

Serves its purpose

  • Excerpt: Use it for video production. Lightweight, accurate. Only 5 degrees, if you need more accuracy go for the 758

  • Excerpt: Used with the l478 on archiving, and a landscape so far. Verified incident and reflected readings. Worked perfect. Looking forward to using it more. Trying to get better everyday.

Works great, IF YOU NEED IT.

  • Excerpt: Soooooo...this item works as intended. BUT (and this is a big but), had I done a little more research I wouldn't have bothered with it because it does what my camera already does in spot-metering mode.

One of my most valuable tools

13 November 2014
  • Excerpt: I shoot both video and still and this product is constantly in use on any shoot. I learned how to shot on film and am very seletive about which areas of an image are lit for detail, and how the overall image has contrast.

Pretty

Human Eye, Adorama
10 July 2014
  • Excerpt: Out of the box the meter seemed to be accurate. Calibration is easy but is a fickle process. I had to Google info to figure out the error messages. The manual or website was not very helpfule. The touch screen isn't that great. I have to press several time to get it to respond.
  • Pros: Reliable
  • Cons: Difficult To Use, Poor Design
