The B&H Light Meter Buying Guide

B&H has put together this Lowepro DP Kit to provide an essential package for use by grips or anyone involved in film or video. The kit includes a Sekonic Speedmaster L-858D-U Meter, Leatherman Sidekick Multi-Tool, Pelican 2760 Gen 3 LED Headlamp, and a Lowepro Passport Sling III Bag.

The black Passport Sling III from Lowepro holds a DSLR or a mirrorless camera, an attached lens, and an additional lens or flash inside a protective, removable camera insert within the main compartment. You can also store your tablet inside a CradleFit tablet compartment on one interior side. For holding additional photo or travel items, the Sling III features an expandable front compartment that increases the storage capacity up to thirty percent.

Featuring numerous places to hold small accessories, the Sling III has four exterior slip pockets, two on each side, and an interior zippered mesh pocket with a key leash. To carry the sling, there is an attached adjustable shoulder strap, with a detachable shoulder pad for comfort.

The Leatherman Sidekick Multi-Tool features stainless steel construction and 14 tools including two 2.6" 420HC blades—straight and serrated; three screwdrivers; two sets of spring-action pliers/wire cutters; and a wire stripper—all with a stainless finish. The blades are outside accessible and feature one-handed operation. The built-in carabiner holds an optional ¼" hex bit driver. The lanyard ring and replaceable pocket clip help keep the Sidekick within arm's reach. The multi-tool comes with a ballistic nylon sheath with touch-fastened closure and is assembled in the USA.

Lightweight, weatherproof, versatile, and powered by widely available batteries, the Pelican 2760 Gen 3 LED Headlamp will meet a wide range of professional, recreational and around-the-house needs. Its white-light LED shines at high (204 lumens), medium (142 lumens) and low (95 lumens) settings, along with a 42-lumen downcast setting (handy for holding a conversation with someone without shining the light in their eyes.) There is also a flashing mode for extra visibility or emergency signaling, and a red-light mode for preserving night-acclimated vision. Runtimes range from 11 hours on downcast to two hours on high, and the lamp is equipped with a full-time battery level indicator. The polycarbonate housing is IPX4-rated splash-proof and impact resistant in drops of up to 3.3 feet.

Aiming to provide for the needs of both photographers and filmmakers, the Speedmaster L-858D-U Light Meter from Sekonic comes packed with a variety of upgraded features and capabilities that make it an almost essential tool for a working professional. It is able to take incident and reflected light readings of both flash and ambient light with an expanded measuring range of -5 to 22.9 EV at ISO 100, or within an illuminance range of 0.1 to 2,000,000 lux. Users will also find it intuitive and easy-to-use thanks to the use of a 2.7" color touchscreen LCD and an all-weather design.

The meter can use either a 270° rotating and collapsible lumisphere or an integrated 1° spot viewfinder to account for varying needs of the user. Also, it offers an extensive range of cinema and video settings as well as the unique ability to measure flash duration and to take readings when using high-speed sync flash. The L-858D-U is equipped with a variety of other functions as well, including memory recall, a Flash Analyzing Function, and extended ranges on nearly every setting. Additionally, through the use of optional modules, users can add radio triggering support for PocketWizard and Elinchrom/Phottix systems.
