I would like general help regarding light meters


Sekonic L-758DR
Q:
What is the difference between the L-758D and the L-758DR?
A:
The meters are identical except that the L-758D is only sold overseas and does not include the PocketWizard radio module. This meter uses the European PocketWizard frequencies. The L-758DR is only sold in North America and uses America PocketWizard frequencies.
Q:
I do not have the Sekonic gray scale chart yet. May I still enter camera profiles into my meter?
A:
Yes. If you have determined your camera’s dynamic range through your own testing, that data may be entered manually: see pages 45-47 in the L-758DR owner’s manual.
Q:
I took a flash reading at 1/250 and got f/8, and then I changed the shutter speed to 1/125, and then to 1/60, but the meter still reads f/8. Is something wrong with the meter?
A:
No. When shooting indoors in flash mode at high shutter speeds, the flash is doing all of the lighting, so the shutter speed is not going to be a factor. In this situation you will see the meter read '100%', which means that the f/8 is all flash. If you change to the slower shutter speeds, the ambient light will start to become a factor, and the 100% will change to 90%, 80%, etc.
