Keep or Sell

Recommended Posts

We'll be moving from film to all digital in a few months.

 

Using Nikon D-200s, is there any reason to keep Sekonic or Ike u/w light meters?

The light meter in the latest models of cameras are pretty good, and with the image review options available (histogram et al), I don't think that external light meters are required. I personally don't use them anymore, in any case...

I have the Ikelite digital UW light meter and a housed D200 (yes, the 4 channel histogram is very cool for judging exposure).

 

I think, there are a couple of reasons to keep it.

-flash calibration (or just checking the output of your flash units)

-ambient light meter (sanity check for tricky wide-angle situations)

 

Take Care,
