Best thing since sliced bread!

  • Excerpt: Don't usually bother to write any reviews, but man alive this thing is awesome. I own the PocketWizard Mini, AC3, x4 FlexTT5's and x4 AC9's which control a set of AlienBee B1600's. The AC3 is now gathering dust on the shelf - the meter worked out of the box with no issues for me. Only config item needed to double check the radio channels for the PW's, and it was good to go.It just works, it's smooth, the interface is clean, and appears to be accurate from what I've seen...

Blows my old meter away

  • Excerpt: I was really hesitant about buying a touch screen meter. But I use this inside, outside and it just works. Screen can be read even in direct sunlight. I mainly us this for studio work but I have been trying out video and having that function to set up my DSLR for video is breeze.

Yes, Virginia, You DO Need A Meter

  • Excerpt: Using the combination of the Sekonic Litemaster Pro L-478DR Light Meter with the X-Rite ColorChecker Passport ensures that I have a correct exposure with accurate color tones each time I press the shutter! This is an excellent incident meter which eliminates the guesswork when dealing with high contrast subjects. I use both the meter and the Passport in the studio and at all of the sporting venues where I shoot.

To answer my own question...

  • Excerpt: Turns out I simply needed to go to 'Custom Setting' and change 'T-F Increments'. This is a great, fairly compact meter that is a must for those who are thinking about setting up an indoor studio.<br /><br />How nice it is to get perfect exposures right away. <br /><br />Will have to consider getting the spot meter accessory in the future. Yes, it would be nice if it was included but then one might balk at the price of the entire purchase.
  • Pros: Durable, Easy To Use Once You Know, Lightweight, Reliable

Great piece of equipment

  • Excerpt: This device gives me perfect exposures every time I take a picture. It's light weight and its easy to use. The built in pocket wizard makes taking strobe flash photos so much easier. If your a serious photography or videographer, you definitely should add this to your gear. I would definitely recommend this to a friend.
  • Pros: Compact, Easy to Use, Good Video Quality, Great Picture Quality, Lightweight
  • Cons: Battery Life Isn't Long
