Excerpt: Hands down one of the best meters you can get. Makes composition so easy in very difficult lighting conditions in the studio or field that most digital SLRs including the pro versions are limited. A must for multiple flash and soft boxes getting it right on the first try.
Excerpt: I use the light meter in outdoor and natural light scenarios for the time being to verify my camera's light meter. I can set to either aperture or speed priority with my preferred ISO of 100 and get great exposures.
Excerpt: I bought this meter to replace a Sekonic L-508 which I'd owned for years (and that still works just fine). The L-758DR meters exactly the same as the L-508 in both spot and incident modes. This is a reassurance to me as I am always wary of shooting medium format slide film with an unknown element.
Excerpt: I have been using an L558 for many years, I did not know what I was missing! I discovered my camera had much more dynamic range than I thought and the mid gray was NOT where I thought. I now place my highlight exposure EXACTLY .3 stops from the clipping border...every time!
Great Meter - Completely changed my approach to photography

Excerpt: I do primarily landscape photographer and with the Spot Metering (1 degree) that the Sekonic L-758DR provides it is invaluable since you are able to meter for your edges (highlights and shadows).
Excerpt: At first, I admittedly had trouble transitioning to using a light meter. Luckily my Professor gave some basic pointers such as: how to use the "tenths" beside the f-stop to accurately meter, where to point the lumisphere, and drove home that reciprocity is a vital tool.
Pros: Accurate, Compact, Consistent, Lightweight, Strong Construction
