Holy Mother of Pearl! I had no idea that my 5D III metering was so useless. Not that I have any complaints about the camera; I love the thing, but after a few hours with the 478DR, I don't know how I worked without it. For years I actually thought no one using a DSLR needs a light meter -- it's a holdover from film. Wow, was I wrong! This is a superb tool which will save me countless hours. Close
