    Is anyone familiar with the Sekonic L-758DR DigitalMaster Light Meter?

    I find myself in need of a new spot meter, and this one looks to have the features that I would like/need. I'm interested if anyone has used this meter in the real world.

    Thanks,

    I think Helen reviewed it awhile back. I'm getting one sooner or later. From the reviews it looks like an improved 358.

    Helen Bach is very knowledgeable about metering and has the Sekonic 758DR, probably best asking her. Here is a link to a post she made about the meter on the Hybrid Photo forum titled strangely enough, "The Sekonic L-758 Exposure Meter."

    This posting on the Leica Camera User forum might be of some interest as it discusses profiling with this meter and is titled, "Good Spot Meter to go with M8?"

    And you might want to also read the manual in .pdf format made available on Sekonic's website, "L758 Operating Manual."

    Thanks I'll go over there and look - I don't generally visit Hybrid Photo. I have downloaded the manual, but was looking for anyone's real world experience.
