• The Sekonic L-758DR DigitalMaster is the World's first multi-function light meter than can be programmed to match the sensitivity of digital camera sensors or types of film for perfect exposure control.
• Digital exposure has presented new challenges for photographers and Sekonic has responded with a digital-ready light meter to meet and exceed the demand for digital exposure control. The L-758DR DigitalMaster offers all the features found on the popular L-558R DualMaster, however, that's where the similarities end.
• From its inception, the L-758DR has been designed from the ground up to address the needs of today's digital photographers.
• Since no two digital cameras, camera and light meter or different types of films are likely to agree on exactly the same exposure, they need to be matched to one standard. Sekonic has recognized the need for this and has created a convenient solution, the L-758DR.
• With its internal programmable memory, the L-758DR can compensate for variation in exposure accuracy caused by different ISO settings, light sources, measuring methods and even file formats. In addition, the dynamic range of a camera sensor can be stored and displayed on the meter's LCD screen.
• This is a valuable feature because it presents the photographer with the dynamic range limits of their camera's sensor before taking the photograph. In addition, the L-758DR has blinking pre-exposure warning indicators to alert the photographer when a measured highlight or shadow has met or exceeded the dynamic range. Clipping points (user defined dynamic range limits) can also be programmed for additional exposure control.
• Up to three different exposure profiles (digital cameras and/or films) can be stored at the same time in the L-758DR and recalled with a quick keystroke. Each exposure profile contains the unique exposure characteristic of a type of film or digital camera sensor.
Using the included Sekonic Data Transfer Software and the provided USB cable, exposure profiles can be loaded into the L-758DR through its built-in USB port. Exposure profiles can be acquired through a four-step exposure test using the optional Sekonic test target, or pre-tested exposure profiles can be downloaded from www.sekonic.com (available 12/06).
Loaded with many new features such as midtone adjustment, built-in wireless triggering with channel/zone continuously displayed, user upgradeable firmware, enhanced memory store/clear mode and 14 different custom settings, the L-758DR DigitalMaster is a new breed of digital exposure control.
The Sekonic L-758DR is commonly used for Artwork, Film, Photography, Portraits, Studio and more.The Sekonic L-758DR is most used by customers who consider themselves to be a Enthusiast, Pro photographer, Semi-pro photographer among others.The Sekonic L-758DR is popular because customers like the following qualities of the Sekonic L-758DR: Accurate, Compact, Consistent, Durable, Easy to use, Lightweight, Reliable and Strong construction

Sekonic always produces top of the line equipment.The price is the same, but you get what you pay for. The unit can not reach it's advertised potential with out the target. No mention that the unit is only an ordinary light meter with it. An additional $100.00 to acquire a cardboard plastic sheet is a bit much. I feel I have been ripped off.

make my photography more easier
Finally got a light meter!! I got this one used because I'm on a very tight budget. Great condition, no issues so far. Haven't gotten to use it much, but am confident it will last.
First, let me say, after trying to convince myself that I needed this at the cost of this thing, I decided to buy it. Boy am I happy I did, I read all the reviews I could on it, even some negative ones. It takes a while to figure out how to use it the manual is big and the utube videos are out there. But it took me all day to do my first profile because some of the critical steps you can miss. It is really nice to walk up to your shot and take a reading and know you can trust what it tells you. Once you do this a couple of times you say oh ya, it was worth it. You can set up more than one camera which is really nice. This will take me a couple of months to figure out all the things you can do. In my opinion it was well worth it.
The Sekonic L-758DR is the perfect all around meter. It's great especially for landscape photography
In learning the use of the Sekonic L-758DR in my classes it has done all that I needed plus some functions that I was not aware of. Sekonics web sight has a lot of instructional to enhance learning
Like many photographers, I pondered which light meter to purchase. But after checking into the 758, a light opened (in my mind), and I walked therein. I watched countless video commentaries and reviews about this great find! I thought that I was a good photographer, but after purhasing my 758, I know now that my photography is better. My light readings are very consistent and aren't fouled like my camera's metering system. This meter is a must have for all that are serious about photography! Peace and Happiness...
If you are shooting for perfect exposures every time this get this meter. everything else you are doing to achieve perfect exposures does not come close this this light meter
This is the Cadillac of light meters which is why it carries the price tag. It does just about everything a light meter could do and does it well.
This was the recommended light meter when I started at Brooks Institute last year. I didn't know a whole lot about professional photography at the time, so I went ahead and bought it. Now that I've been using it, I am not really sure that I need such a high-quality product. There are a lot of features that I rarely use. Ultimately, my review is that if you are a pro or an aspiring pro...this a well made product with a lot of functionality that will last you for years. If you are a hobbyist or a someone who doesn't do much studio work...you probably could find something less expensive and get the job done.
I think this meter is pretty useless for me. Don't get me wrong, it is a great meter. I just never find myself using it since i know my setting what i want on the lighting. I think it just look cool for client who like to watch you meter your model subject looking like a pro. To be honest, i never seem to need it or use it. I think is mainly for beginners if you don't know how to spot or meter your lighting equipments in multiple set up. Again, it is the best meter in the market that for sure. I only recommend this to a friend if they are a beginner.
