Hold the reading button on your Sekonic. Press teh test button on your Cybersync transmitter. View reading on Sekonic.

You don't NEED pocket wizards. You can use anything, it's just that Sekonic has an adapter module that works with Pocket Wizards.

Doesn't it have a PC Sync port? Your Bees should have come with a cable that will go from the PCSync port to the mono plug on the side of your transmitter.

NOT necessary to hold the button!!! The L358 has a cordless flash measurement mode...


  1. you put L358 into cordless mode
  2. you press the L358 button to take a reading...it waits until
  3. you press the trigger to make the flash fire
  4. ...the L358 reads the light emitted by the flash

You need to give me OK to edit your image and repost! Keep POTN alive and well with member support https://photography-on-the.net/forum/donate.p​hp
