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.
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.
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.
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.
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.
