Moderate for the price
on 21 February 2014
Lightmeters seem either to be moderately expensive or ridiculously expensive. I got this one because it was the cheapest reputable one I could find at the time.
Overall its been good so far. Nice shape, easy to hold, easy to use. Better than no lightmeter. It does flash readings and ambient. Incident and reflective.
- No backlights so you cant find the buttons or see the readout in a darker studio without a torch or going into a lit area - a total pain
- Can't choose between speed and aperture priority, which can be a pain for some tasks.
But as I said, its reliable and its at the 'cheap' end. I think they could sort out the above problems though and not charge more - the average wrist watch is a quarter of the price and has more facilities. Still, better than no meter at all.
