Excerpt: Just started about 4 months ago at this level of photography studying aperture, shutter, lighting and without a meter you can imagine the trial and error shots I was getting. So I did what any other beginner would do, got on Youtube after a lot of videos by a lot of photographers I got the L-478dr...
Excerpt: The first one arrived DOA (dead on arrival), so that didn't make me very happy (take off two stars), although B&H did make me a happy B&H customer by quickly sending me another (so add back one star, giving a rating of 3 stars)! This is my first light meter, so I'm still learning.
Excerpt: It does what it's supposed to but it feels a bit cheap. The screen is like an old arcade game. I had the 758DR and it was stolen. I went with this one as a replacement since I rarely used the spot meter. Like I said, It works just fine but doesn't seem to have the build quality of the 758.
Excerpt: I've been using an l-358 for some time now, but my eyesight is getting worse. So I thought the LCD dispaly would be better and it's great. I also like the size better and the way you can access everything from the main screen.
Pros: Compact, Easy to read, Easy to Use, Fast, Great Picture Quality, Lightweight
Excerpt: I love the screen of this light meter. It is easy to use and change the settings even if you are not read the manual. I like the pocket wizzard triggering funcion and that feature was the reason to buy this model. The only thing I don't like is the pouch which came with the meter.
