The Sekonic Exposure Profile Target II provides the photographer with an easy, reliable and fast way to test your camera's sensor. Sensors, being as touchy as they are, can be subject to a variety of influences when shooting. This target gives you the chance to find out exactly where your sensor falls on the exposure scale. 

By making three basic exposures (one centered, one at +3 and one at -3), you can easily find the right exposure for any camera lens combination.

Note! Compatible with Data Transfer Software as well as the 758DR and 758C meters

I tried to use the original Sekonic Target to calibrate my L-758DR meter. What an ordeal! I gave up. Too many exposures to take, too much to do. It was a good idea gone wrong!

With Version 2 of the software (free download) and Target II it took me about 15 minutes to calibrate one body for both ambient and flash, over two ISOs. Much much better!

I only wish Sekonic had gotten it right the first time, or had offered those of us who bought Target I an upgrade path instead of buying a whole new target.

If you get Sekonic L 758DR and you want to profile your camera Dynamic Range, you are looking to spend 160$ for a piece of paper that is NOT durable. Make sure NO hand oil print, No humidity and NO bending, I'm really disappointed by the quality of it compare to X-Rite Color Checker Passport and its price 130$.
I live in Canada and cost for returning this is not worth it , I feel betrayed by Seckonic, target card should be included in L 785DR package not something you buy separately.

Comments about Sekonic Exposure Profile Target II:

This like so many things in this industry seams overpriced, carry over from when these kinds of things were only used/needed by the wealthy.Anyways i don't think this is worth it if you want to just profile a single camera once.If you intend to profile multiple cameras and different settings and with different lenses and you want your measurements to accurate then this start looking less expensive compared to the milage you'll get out of it.If you only need to do it once then get the Target One version and take 50 exposures, if you only want a ballpark profile then use the passport instead.If you're insane like me get this and profile every variable imaginable.Another complaint I've seen is that it is not very durable, they are right it is not. But this is not the kind of chart I'd take outside of the area I test with.

Comments about Sekonic Exposure Profile Target II:

Very helpful in calibrating your Sekonic Meter to your specific camera and lens configuration. With the free software from Sekonic you can customize your meter to your camera and adjust your clipping points to within 2/10 - 3/10 of a stop if you desire giving you the most dynamic range from your readings and allowing you to adjust your exposure based upon those readings for your own personal style.

        Very expensive for what you get. It does not come with a good protective case, so it can easily become bent or get fingerprints on when pulling out of the sleeve. It does however make calibrating the meter easier by only needing 3 exposures.

            Used to calibrate my Sekonic light meter, it's light weight but won't get blown away by the wind very easily if used outdoors. Comes sealed in an envelope with thick cardboard so it doesn't get bent. When it arrived in the mail, despite all the airbags and cardboard to keep the item flat, it was slightly twisted but a few small bends in the opposite direction fixed this up. I would not have purchased anywhere else even if I knew this before.

                    Comments about Sekonic Exposure Profile Target II:

                    A reasonably well constructed profile target that has 25 exposure patches in 1/6 f/stop increments which will enable one to easily create a matching camera profile to install into the Sekonic L-758DR light meter. If you have this meter it is worth the expense to obtain this target and along with the Sekonic software a profile can be created for your particular camera and lens combination. One side of the card is fully 18% gray and can be used to set a custom white balance in your camera before taking the three exposure images for creating the profile. I would have hoped that the card would have been a little more robust in nature, however it is more than adequate to handle the task it was designed for. There are instructions with the target indicating you should not touch the exposure panels with your bare hands, get dirt or debris on it or leave it exposed to bright light for extremely long periods of time.

                    This target does what it is supposed to do and when the instructions are followed a very accurate camera/lens profile can be created in just a few minutes with the ability to tweak it a bit in the software if one desires to do so.

                    Comments about Sekonic Exposure Profile Target II:

                    This probably should be included with the meter (even if the cost has to be more). It seems expensive for what it is but I do know that it works really great! What it does (with software that comes with the Sekonic L-758DR meter) is that it provides a standard that you take a few shots of to build a profile for a particular camera and lens combination. The meter then displays the dynamic range of your camera and lens so you can tell instantly if a scene has too much dynamic range in exposure to be captured in a single photo. You can then use the meter to determine the number of shots needed to achieve the range needed if using an HDR software. I'm finding that I can actually take fewer shots in order to get the full range of exposure. You can build as many profiles as you want to with the software on your computer and can load up to 3 different profiles on the L-758 at a time. I typically use about 3 different lenses for most landscape shots so I have profiled my camera and those 3 lenses. That way I'm covered with my meter whichever lens I use. The instruction manual isn't very good but there are a lot of videos that show the use of the meter (there was no instruction manual with this product). I have found videos that Joe Brady has done to be very helpful! (Both on Sekonic website and on Youtube).
