The Sekonic Litemaster Pro L-478DR light meter is the principal meter accessible that elements a shading touch screen interface for taking light readings, exploring menus and controlling individual profiling choices. This meter permits you to record light readings for still, streak and cine applications, and even gives you a chance to control which metering techniques promptly seem to best suit your own picture gathering work process.
Moreover, you can tweak your estimations by actualizing preset and programmable camera settings, presentation pay settings, filtration settings and near estimations to help you accomplish the most exact, adjusted introduction readings conceivable. The L-478DR likewise incorporates PocketWizard ControlTL radio innovation, giving you the capacity to trigger and conform the force settings of up to three blaze zones remotely, specifically from your meter.
Battery sort is a vital yet not entirely obvious element in all photographic gear. One immense change to the Sekonic L-478DR is the utilization of standard AAA batteries, rather than lithium CR123A cells. The units ship with a couple of typical AAA, yet it's pleasant to realize that you can utilize rechargeable batteries like the Sanyo Eneloop AAA NiMH rather than more costly and harder to discover sizes.
The control surfaces of the L-478DR are to a great degree basic. Other than the on/off catch, there's a catch to take a meter understanding, one to confer the perusing to memory, a menu catch and that is it. So how has Sekonic stuffed such a variety of new components into the L-478DR? It's all taking cover behind the touch screen.
At first look the touch screen on the L-478DR looks and feels dated. The determination and material feeling take after an old dashboard GPS rather than a cutting edge cell phone. On the off chance that I needed to figure, Sekonic's choice to utilize this sort of screen held expenses down while having the extra advantages of better decipherability in sunny conditions and better drop resistance (a smart thought for an instrument that has a tendency to get dropped a ton).
Fortunately the absence of screen determination doesn't affect the usefulness of the L-478DR by any stretch of the imagination – it's still the most full included and usable light meter I've seen. The on-screen "catches" are substantial and simple to peruse and, on the grounds that the unit is generally the extent of an iPhone, it can be controlled utilizing stand out hand. Fine acclimations to opening, screen, and iso are made by tapping the comparing up/down bolts. Bigger changes are made by squeezing and hanging on a bolt. The screen even reacts to sliding movements, like what you'd find when setting a clock an iPhone.
Like most Sekonic items, the L-478DR feels well-manufactured. The close lines are tight and the elastic guard that covers the close by bit of the gadget goes far to decrease the chance that you'll drop it. Proprietors of the old L-358 will instantly see how much better the controls feel on the L-478DR – Sekonic has supplanted the squishy elastic stubs with firm, short-toss plastic catches.
