Simple and quick

Using a camera without a dedicated light meter can be awkward. I had been using a second camera's meter to set the first's. That was a juggling act. This little light meter does the trick and so much faster. It's pocket size, convenient and doesn't require switching cameras.

Exactly What I Needed

By

from San Luis Obispo, California  -  Semi-Professional

Perfect for what I needed. My primary use is with my non-electronic cameras (Rollieflex 2.8F and Hasselblad SWC and 500 C/M) and I use the meter in both the incident and reflected light modes. Exposures seem to be spot on and it takes up almost no space or weight when it's in my pack or pocket. If I lost it today, I'd order another tomorrow.

I like the ability to look at it and see all the combinations of Aperture and shutter speed in a glance like on the meters of old.

Experience will tell

I am using this to try and improve my exposures with the objective of reducing the times I need to take HDR (3 exposure) shots. My initial tests using the meter show that it is about the same as using the matrix-metering on my Nikon D7000. Once I get out "in the field" I'll use it more extensively to see if it has a benefit over the matrix metering. Other than that, it is a nice meter and functions as advertised.

Questions & Answers Powered by TurnTo®

Questions about this item:

J. DAVID F  II have a Digisix which I have been using for several years and I am very happy with it. Does the Digisix 2 have any functions which my older meter lacks?
KEVIN J  That is a good question. I have both the first version and the second version so I can answer that. No there is no difference between them except shutter speed numbers are now white on a black background.
KEITH S  Does this item have a shoe-mount base whereby it can be kept in the flash shoe of an SLR camera?
WILLIAM K  No it does not. It has a lanyard to hang around your neck with a zip open neoprene case. The lanyard slips through a hole in the case so you don't loose the case. There is a threaded insert in the backside - perhaps for some optional items that are not included as standard.
