3.0 out of 5 stars Moderate for the price, 21 Feb. 2014
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: Sekonic Flashmate L-308S Digital Light/Flash Meter (Electronics)
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.

The drawbacks
- 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.

I bet every one you know has a wrist watch? How many have light meters?
If almost every one in the country had one or two light meters, they would be much cheaper and full spec, so not sure why you compared light meters to watches. They are completely different technologies.

Why you would need a light meter for shutter speed exposure?
