Last week, my 20some years old flashmeter had a "stroke". So, instead of seeing the "lighmeter doctor", I sent it to its "grave", and invested in a new Sekonic L478DR.

That thing is incredible. I calibrated it for the dynamic range of my cameras, and the lighmeter always takes into account the highlights and shadows to give the best exposure given the subject.

To top it off, the DR version has a radio trigger incorporated that works in conjunction with the "Pocket Wizard" remotes.

Sorry to hear about your beloved flashmeter would these flashmeters measure the same light as your sensor in your camera in the day light or would the meter give off a more correct reading.

This lightmeter measures flash, incident and reflected light.

So, yes it would measure the same thing as the camera.

I was looking at that meter just last week and I would have bought it if there was a Bowens Pulsar module

Great purchase Yves... Wouldn't mind one myself. Just have to wait for the l308 to die. Could be some time,,,,
