Review for Twin Mate Meter

  • Excerpt: The way you use the product is to set it for reflective or incendent lighting and depending on what setting you have it on you either measure the light from your subject to the camera or from the camera to your subject. I really like it because it is small and compact while still getting the job done. Have not found anything I don't like about it.
  • Pros: Accurate, Compact, Consistent, Lightweight, Strong Construction

Nice Little Light Meter

  • Excerpt: Bought this light meter to replace an old Gossen that finally died. Seems like a terrific meter, light, compact and accurate. The only reason I gave it four stars is that the construction feels some what delicate, not sturdy like the old Gossen. The supplied soft case doesn't seem like it can take much of a beating. I actually did something I never do. I bought an extended warranty because it seems fragile, an issue many of the reviews mention.
  • Pros: Accurate, Compact, Consistent, Lightweight
  • Cons: Poor Construction

  • Excerpt: I recently dug out my Lunasix 3 after buying the Xrite colorchecker and reading how it works with a lightmeter. I've owned the Lunasix way back in the film days but with technology every seems to shrink in size and the Lunasix is now looking rather bulky. I 've had an eye on this L208 and the L398, which needs no battery but is twice the size. This one is the perfect size and can get tucked in my pocket and weighs next to nothing.

unreliable

  • Excerpt: This lightmeter broke shortly after I bought it. Sekonic was nice enough to fix it but now the meter needle moves with pointer needle when it is adjusted so I am afraid it is unreliable.
  • Cons: Inaccurate, Inconsistent, Poor Construction

  • Excerpt: Good for all types of light readings. Small and easy to pack. Exposure wheel turns a little too easily and thus is easily changed by accident.
  • Pros: Lightweight

  • Excerpt: My son is a professional photographer in Charlotte, NC and I got this for him as a Christmas gift. He loves it, especially when he has to go on a location shoot. It's reliable, easy to use and is absolutely a one-handed operation. Great product, great company, and very good price.
