Excerpt: This is a great light meter. I am currently using it for my lighting class and it has yet to fail me. The built in feature to trigger the lights and the accuracy of the readings make this the best thing ever. I am looking forward to using it on location when I purchase my profoto studio lights.
Pros: Accurate, Compact, Consistent, Lightweight, Strong Construction
Excerpt: It is a quality product. I have found it helpful. After watching the Sekonic videos with Joe Brady, I found the setup and calibration with my camera very easy. The manuel that comes with it is satisfactory. It also comes with a nice carrying case with a belt loop.
Excerpt: Outstanding. Have calibrated my camera (5D Mark III) to light meter with Xrite Color Checker Passport and I very pleased. Currently I'm using meter for portraits and landscapes (spot meter w/ clouds and highlights) and finding exceptional results.
Pros: Accurate, Consistent, Lightweight, Strong Construction
Excerpt: This is a great meter. I also have the 478Dr which I like a lot. The 478 allows me to vary flash output from the meter whereas this meter just fires the flashes. The 478 is also more intuitive to use. The biggest reason for the 758 meter for me was landscapes. The one degree spot reflectance meter is much better than the 5 degree add on option for the 478 when doing landscapes. I shot some white pelicans on a river and the spot meter was very helpful.
Excerpt: I recently inherited a set of studio monolights from a retiring portrait photographer who feared the lights would sit in storage and that I really needed to use them for an upcoming personal project of mine. The only light meter I owned was an old Sekonic L28-C2 which I've had for nearly 30 years. It was never intended for metering flash photography. I bought the Sekonic L-758DR Digital Master after seeing it in use in a number of lighting classes on CreativeLive.
Excerpt: I am primarily a landscape photographer however I do have a studio and do portrait work as well. The Sekonic L-758DR handles it all! The spot metering (1 degree) is invaluable when trying to pluck out crucial highlights in a landscape scene and the wireless capability to trigger Pocket Wizard receivers in the studio is awesome as well!
Pros: Accurate, Compact, Consistent, Lightweight, None, Strong Construction
Excerpt: One of the best and more complete light meter in the market. I use it in my studio to trigger my pocket wizards plus 3s, and outdoors, to use it with my canon speed lights. You can go wrong with this unit, is amazing!
