I was looking for a light meter and came across a webinar by Joe Brady ( Now a life long friend but we have never met) on the Sekonic L-758DR . Back in the days of film I had a light meter consisting of Dial for f/stop and one for distance markers with a cut out window for the resulting settings. Yep not easy. thankfully I am now in possession of the Sekonic L-758DR what a delight to work with, I couldn't believe the results I am getting with this device, I never do a shoot without it, it cuts out a big chunk of time spent in post processing. Is it worth the price tag? ( yes I pondered over that for a while) Trust me it's worth every penny or dime. Close
