Hey, I'm mostly a portrait photographer but recently have been branching out into weddings. I've used flash and ambient light meters before, but don't actually own one. I can definatly see the pro's of using one, but I've been just rattling off a few test shots and using the histogram to get my exposures right in studio. On location I usually use either the cameras metering or manual with flash. When I shoot film in studio I get the exposure on the digital first and then dial that into the other camera (that's a pain in the behind and the biggest reason for this thread) and on location it's the same as digital, camera meter combined with flash and manual.
Now that you know my background, my question! How many of you regularily use light meters? Has anyone used one but abandoned it? I'm thinking of getting a Sekonic L-358, which I've used before, but before I drop the $400 I'd like to be sure.http://www.vistek.ca …tails.aspx?WebCode=202200
