2008-04-16 17:12:17 Though the Sekonic L-358 is considered to be the standard pro light meter by many, there is certainly room for improvement. I bought this from digitalfoto with free shipping. I am very happy with the price. It has everything that you need. Compact.

This is my first light meter. I was a little nervous at first that it would be hard to use.

Bought this meter secondhand to replace an old L-398 Sekonic which had seen better days. Great bargain considering it was spotless. Best meter I ever had. Very useful with the built-in radio transmitter to trigger monolights and flashlights. No cords, just photographic luxury.

Intuitive Product This digital meter may appear a bit daunting at first but is in fact very simple and intuitive to use. Highly recommended Fantastic tool. Essential if you do studio work or portraits. My in-camera meter is good but the light meter is better.

Love it I have owned this product for about a month. I have found it very easy to use and right on the money for getting the best exposure. Flash Meter for Everywhere! I purchased this item from a well known camera company based out of New York.

This is my first light meter. I was a little nervous at first that it would be hard to use. I only got this meter because Minolta went out of business, and was skeptical at first. The Sekonic has been a pleasant suprise, though.

Reproducible Results I purchased the Sekonic L-358 because of all the great reviews and because I wanted reproducible results. Good Light Meter, But... Not as good as its big brother, the Sekonic L-758DR. I used the 758DR at school and man I shoulda just splurged on that.

Battery check: Place a battery in battery chamber correctly, Then b.c. mark and bar symbols and switch the meter ON are displayed for a second. Number of bar symbols shows degree of battery capacity. If battery is weak to give correct readings, b.c. mark is blinking or disappears. After checking battery the display is automatically changed to measuring mode. letting film speed: To set ISO sensitivity to the film you are using, switch the meter ON and press either side of UP/DOWN key while depressing ISO selecting key Setting shutter speed: This meter is designed for T (shutter speed) priority use. Therefore, shutter speed should be set first except the meter is used in EV mode. By pressing either side of UP/DOWN key, display of shutter speed is changed accordingly. Selecting measuring mode: By pressing F/EV selecting key measuring mode can be converted from F mode (combination of F-stop and shutter speed is displayed) to EV mode (EV number is displayed), or vice versa.


Incident light measurement to swivel 1. For measuring ambient light: Mount Lumisphere head Switch the meter ON and point Lumisphere to camera from the position where subject is to be measured. Then measured value of F-stop Press measuring switch or EV is displayed.
2. For measuring illumination contrast: Mount Lumidisc to swivel head. Switch the meter ON and point Lumidisc directly toward center of main light. Press measuring switch in EV mode and read-out the measured value. In the same manner, read the EV number of fill-in light. Difference between EV numbers of main and fill-in lights becomes contrast ratio (refer to Table 1). 3. For measuring luminance (Lux): Set ISO sensitivity to ISO 100 regardless of your film speed. Place Lumidisc parallel with the measured surface and read EV number in the same manner as for other measurements. As to Lux value corresponding to the measured EV number, please refer to Table 2. Reflected light measurement: Mount Lumigrid to swivel head.
Switch the meter ON and point Lumigrid directly toward part of subject to be measured. Measure reflected light from main point of subject as close as possible to the subject. Use adequate care in this case that the meter shadow does not interfere with the light to be measured. Post-measurement calculation 1. Calculation dependent upon change of film speed can be made by pressing either side of UP/DOWN key while depressing ISO selecting key. 2. Calculation dependent upon change of shutter speed can be made by pressing either side of UP/DOWN key only. 3. Conversion of measuring mode can be made by pressing F/EV selecting key. Measuring range: When measuring range is exceeded, F-stop or EV number will be replaced E.o (error-over) or E.u (error-under) mark. Measurement for movie camera: Procedure for taking measurements when using movie camera is the same as for taking ambient light measurements.
