As expected

  • Excerpt: Decent construction on a spot meter. Only gripe is that I have to cup the screen to read the display with ease when using it outdoors on a bright day

Good but expensive

  • Excerpt: Good companion to the sekonic light meter. Easy to install and uninstall. Just don't see why it should be so expensive though!

Flash delta EV display too short

Papa Smurf, B&H Photo

  • Excerpt: I purchased the L-478D specifically for measuring flash and for the %flash and delta EV (Contrast Function) features which are not on the L-308s. Unfortunately with flash measurements the delta EV display is less than 1 second in either flash mode.
  • Cons: Poor Firmware

Simple, powerful, must-have

  • Excerpt: This little unit does WAY more than I expected! I do a lot of work with models and having a reliable light meter to take the guess-work out of my lighting conditions helps me to look more professional and feel more confident on my shoots. Honestly, I'm not sure how I ever got by without one!

Litemaster pro l478

  • Excerpt: My first time with one of these. Only used it a few times so far. Did a landscape, some archiving, and a few portraits. Works great. No chimping now ;) The touchscreen isn't like a smartphone, but it's adequate. I haven't calibrated it to my cameras yet, but will soon.
