I've long felt that I was not getting the best out of my digital camera by using it's TTL metering system. Having been brought up on film, a light meter was a tool I constantly used and for several years I considered buying one for use with my Nikon cameras. I finally took the plunge in June this year and bought a 758DR. Learning how to calibrate and use this meter, thanks to Joe Brady's great videos, has changed my images and how I shoot dramatically. I'm now getting the full tonality I was after and it's exciting to see images come alive with very small adjustments in Lightroom. Thanks Sekonic and thank you Joe, it's great to see you pass on your skills and knowledge of the Sekonic family of light meters and how to use them. Close
Thanks. I passed your comment to Joe.
