Thinking about buying a Light Meter and I'm wondering what are some of the features I need to look for? Thanks for the help.
Well, a light meter is a tool. Nothing more, nothing less. What is it that you want to light-meter-tool to do?
Do you want the narrow focus of a 1 degree spot meter?
Are you interested in incident light reading?
Do you plan on using this light meter to help you with flash/strobe photography?
For flash/strobe metering do you want to use a wired connection or wireless?
Are you going to be working zone systems where you want to spot meter several areas in your scene and then generate a scene brightness value?
Do you just want another meter to confirm what your in-camera meter indicates?
Do you wish to do your exposure calculations in EVs and your camera displays stops?
A separate light meter can do these things. Very expensive ones can do all of them, less expensive ones can do some of them. Which of these capablities are important to you?
If I were spending YOUR money, then the IKAN MK 350 is only $2,000.
If I were spending MY money, I would want to pick a light meter that does only what I need it to do and only pay for that functionality.
I use a 20 year old Sekonic 308. It does everything I need it to do other than spot metering. If I get to a position where I need spot metering, I would consider upgrading. But honestly, if you won't be using spot metering, don't buy a spot meter.
Like everything else in photography, there is no best... only what is best for you.
Find out what you need and purchase accordingly.
There are several reviews on the Internets Tubes, but from an accuracy point of view, they are all pretty good. The only differences are in the different metering capabilities.
Good luck with it.
