    This is great spot attachment for my Sekonic L-358 meter. At first I wasn't sure I was going to like it because I was so used to the in-camera meter. After some internet research about using a hand-held spot meter and the need to take several readings of a scene, a little practice, I am quite pleased with my exposure results. As with any Sekonic product, it is well built and well designed. The only negative is the size. It is rather large and heavy. I causes the swivel head on the meter to turn on it's own. Other than that it is great!!!

    For those tricky multiple flash shots.
    Unfortunately your flash has to deliver at least f8 at the subject when using the 1 degree viewfinder with the L-358. The 5 & 10 degree viewfinders can meter flash from f2.8 to f124. The 1 degree is the most precise if you have the light. Works very well for a left eyed view. You really need the case that accomodates the L-358 with viewfinder.

      Comments about Sekonic 1 Degree Viewfinder:

      I use the 1 degree spotmeter in conjunction with the Sekonic flash meter. I believe to be very accurate, but it's clumsy having to switch devices between incident, reflective, and spot metering. I use all combinations in the out-of-doors, and given a chance, I would look for a meter that allows switching the above functions more easily.

      I do cinematography work and this spot attachment worked great. The only problem is the attachment is very large and becomes a burden. If the size does not bother you then the attachment works very well.

      It's so nice to have a 1 degree spot but it does make the meter quite bulky. I carry it around with the lumisphere installed and change it out for the spot meter when required.

        If you have the L-358 and a job that requires shooting a figure from the stands, this is the tool that will make the first shot count.

          Comments about Sekonic 1 Degree Viewfinder:

          If you already own a Sekonic L-348, this is a terrific addition. It is as easy to use as the 358. But if you're going to buy a new meter and want a spot meter, buy an l-758, which includes the spot meter for only a bit more than the total for the 358 and spot meter.

            I read that this attachment is too bulky, but I thought I would give it a try and I'm glad I did. Let's face it photography is a bulky hobby unless you're taking point and shoot images (nothing wrong with them), on which case you don't need a light meter. Get it, it's great!

              Bought for landscape photography. It works extremely well, and has nice glass. Construction is very nice too-has a good heft to it. The metering in my Nikon D80 is decent, but for spot on awesome results I use the Sekonic L-358 with the 1 Degree Viewfinder. No complaints what so ever. Buy it and your photos will improve immediately!- Doug W. Orlando,Fl

              This is what the L-358 was missing. I was used to the 1 deg. spot metering on an L-558R. This makes the L-358 suitable for any situation.
