    The Sekonic L-308S Light Meter is from the renowned company Sekonic, which is one of the industry's leading light meter manufacturers. This light meter has very good portability. It is pocket-sized and you can even hang it around the neck.


    The Sekonic L-308S Light Meter can register both flash exposures as well as ambient light in one compact light meter product. You can operate it in incident mode (light falling directly on the meter) as well as reflected mode (light reflected toward the camera). The meter is highly accurate, and the buttons are easy to use. Moreover, the display is clear and easy to understand. Such features are good when taking quick shots. The device is also very light weight, specifically 100 grams. The cost unit is very affordable and will surely please the professionals and enthusiasts that have the need of such equipment, positioning itself very well in the market. This is all the more impressive considering that almost all feature requirements of its category are available in this model.


    The light measuring sensor is quite accurate. It's a Lumisphere and a lens at the same time. You can switch between either one to choose reflected or incident light reading modes. An external flash can be attached to the Sekonic L-308S Light Meter using the flash synchro terminal. It can be found on the bottom end of the device. The display is well detailed and is user friendly. It shows main readouts like aperture and shutter speeds. It also shows battery charge level and what mode is currently chosen (cordless/cord flash, auto or ambient). It displays (T) or EV (EV) shutter priority mode as well. If the selected priority in the readout is shutter priority, then aperture and shutter speeds are displayed. EV mode will display EV readouts alongside.


    You can make the reader perform in increments, according to your camera's performance. 1 stop, 1/2 stop and 1/3 stop intervals are possible using this light meter product. This feature helps replicate the exposure settings of modern DSLR and film cameras. When using full-stop mode, exposures are showed in tenth-stop increments. This is accompanied by a repeat accuracy of +/- 0.1 EV. You can see details on the display screen even in low light conditions. The single mode selection button makes handling easier. To seal the deal, the Sekonic L-308S Light Meter is weather proof, which makes it durable regardless of harsh weather conditions.
