The Sekonic Litemaster Pro L-478DR Light Meter is an incident and flash meter featuring a color touch screen interface. The touch screen-based navigation lends itself to a highly intuitive and efficient workflow, allowing you to quickly modify exposure settings and navigate menus. This meter is also highly versatile and capable of measuring flash, incident and reflected light for still, HD video, or cine applications.

The L-478DR can be customized or adapted to your own specifications; depending on the metering modes you use most often, you can hide certain modes to create a more streamlined menu system. Exposure constants include shutter speed, f/-number, ISO, shutter angle, and frame rate; and the exposure variable can be decided upon depending on the situation you are working in. Illuminance and luminance values can also be taken, which are measured in footcandles/lux or candela per square meter/foot-lamberts, respectively. For more fine-tuned results, you can create and input personal profiles, allowing the meter to display exposure settings in accordance with your specific camera's dynamic range and clipping points.

When working with wireless flash metering, the L-478DR has the ability to wirelessly control the power of your flashes via PocketWizard ControlTL technology. Pairing this technology within a light meter enables you to wirelessly adjust the power output from full to 1/64th power for either Nikon or Canon strobes that are mounted to a PocketWizard FlexTT5 transceiver (optional), or to certain studio strobe packs using PocketWizard ControlTL receivers. It will also trigger standard PocketWizards like the Plus or MultiMax series, or any strobe with built-in PocketWizard support. 20 standard channels and 3 CTL zones are available for use with strobes, and your wireless settings can be modified through the menu settings. Depending on the number of lights you are using, you can alter the output of each device from the meter and take a subsequent reading from the main screen. Once each flash group has been measured individually, you can determine your overall exposure settings and transfer those settings to your camera*.

Other settings available include the ability to memorize up to 10 different exposure readings in order to refer back for comparative overall measurements. The AVE/EV setting allows you to make one master exposure reading and have subsequent readings displayed as differential values based on the master exposure value. When working with flash metering, the flash exposure values can be expressed as a percentage of the flash-to-ambient light, giving you the ability to more easily alter and previsualize lighting ratios. Filter compensation and exposure compensation settings can also be applied in order to remove the necessity to apply different filter factors after a meter reading has been taken.

*Note: When using the L-478DR for wireless power control, the applicable PocketWizard units must be updated to the latest firmware. Furthermore, the Mini TT1 or Flex TT5 radio (optional) must be set to "No Change (Trigger Only)" mode. This will allow the L-478DR to function as the master controller, and ensure that your camera will not alter the power settings of the flash groups.

Color Touch Screen Interface and Design
  • The touch screen provides a more intuitive style of navigation and allows you to simply touch the settings you wish to adjust. Menu navigation is intuitive and the handling of various configurations becomes an expedited process.
  • Simple visual layout provides a clear view of your exposure setting and permits customization in regard to the information you wish to be displayed (including a choice of analog exposure scales (EV or f/-stops); 1, 1/2, or 1/3 step increments; the inclusion of 1/10 stops; and the option to hide metering modes you do not use frequently).
  • One physical menu button provides access to a more in-depth menu system that is then navigated through the touch screen. This menu allows for you to program exposure profiles and modify custom settings for your meter.
  • Measure and memory buttons are located on the side of the device for recording and initiating exposure readings. A PC sync terminal is located on the bottom of the device for direct, corded flash metering. A USB terminal is located on the side and provides a connection point to your computer for firmware updates and for loading exposure profiles to your meter. The attached light receptor features a retractable Lumisphere that can be rotated 90° clockwise or 180° counter-clockwise. It is also removable in order to facilitate the use of optional attachments.
  • Wireless Flash Power Control
  • Wirelessly control and modify the power output of PocketWizard-mounted/enabled strobes or flashes directly from your meter.
  • Three sliders allow you to dial up or dial down flash power from full to 1/64th power directly from the meter.
  • Up to three zones can be managed; when working with more than one zone, determine each zone's values individually in order to establish desired lighting ratios, then an overall exposure sum will be determined.
  • Versatility Between Metering Methods
  • Ability to measure incident or flash light and display exposure readings as f/-numbers, shutter speeds, or ISO settings for use with still imaging, HD video, and cine uses. Exposure constants also include frame rate and shutter angle for a variety of motion uses.
  • Also capable of measuring illuminance as footcandles/lux or luminance as candela per square meter/foot-lamberts.
  • Flash metering can display the percentage of flash-to-ambient light within the scene for precise lighting ratios.
  • Comparative metering can be accomplished by using the AVE/EV function; allowing you to set a standard reading and have subsequent readings shown as the difference in exposure value.
  • Cinematic modes offer creative options for setting frame rates between 1 to 1000fps or shutter angles from 1° to 358°.
  • Filter compensation mode enables you to directly apply the effects of filters to your exposure reading. Up to four different filter factors can be applied at once, and up to 30 different filter factors can be stored for use (24 common filters are pre-programmed, including CTB, CTO, ND, +/- green, and 85 amber filters).
  • Custom Profiling
  • You can enable and disable different metering modes from showing up in menus, allowing you to configure the meter to your own personal workflow.
  • Calibration and custom profiling can be accomplished in accordance to your own personal camera by executing a series of exposure tests, processing the tests through Sekonic's Data Transfer Software (included), and outputting the results as a personal profile for use with your meter. These personal profiles confine your meter to work within your specific camera's dynamic range (up to 10 distinct profiles can be saved). Profiles can also be modified or created directly through the meter.

    I'm a photography student and purchased this light meter because it was a mandatory tool for the studio component of the program. It's an incredibly helpful and useful tool and I'm particularly pleased with the interface. It took barely minutes for me to figure out how to have this thing running. It's incredibly easy to use and intuitive, which is great for a studio newbie like myself. There are a number of different colour schemes you can use, depending on whether the light meter is being used in the studio or out in the sunlight, to help you better see what's on the screen. This is especially useful when out in glaring sunlight. This light meter is also lightweight and well built. Its best feature is its consistency, which in my opinion is a sign of a good quality meter. The meter gave accurate and consistent readings across the board, even after constantly changing lighting in the studio over the course of 2 hours. The touch screen interface may sound gimicky on paper but it's a real treat to use. With the amount of features this thing holds, it's definitely a plus not to have so many buttons to press and any wheels to turn.
    The built-in pocket wizard functionality is also a huge bonus. Within minutes this thing was updated via usb, set up, and ready to work with the studio lights. Definitely if you're using any pocket wizards this is the light meter you want to get.
    For beginners who are intimidated, don't be. I'd never used a light meter before and found it very intuitive and straight forward. I was using it within minutes.
    Excellent light meter!

    I purchased this after losing my Sekonic L-358 on a previous shoot. Here are the positives: It does everything I expected it to and is easy to navigate quickly. Unfortunately there is a list of negatives:
    1. Battery life is poor - especially when you are triggering the pocket wizard for an extended period of time.
    2. Takes too long to power on
    3. I used to let my other light meter dangle on a light stand. This one I can't because I'm afraid I'll hurt the touch screen
    4. I had an editorial on the beach a week ago and I had a hard time reading the screen due to brightness.
    5. I'm always afraid I'm going to hurt the touch screen. (I know I mentioned this already, but that's a biggie for my studio.
    There is a lot to like about it, however those 5 listed should be a big deal to any photographer.

      Comments about Sekonic Litemaster Pro L-478DR Light Meter:

      Good meter. I appreciate the simplicity of use without having to dig through menus to find different settings. But, given the touch screen technology universally experienced in phones, this is not the same quality. Also, the construction does not feel like I want to trust it in my pocket while I am on the ground angling for a shot.

            It does what it's supposed to but it feels a bit cheap. The screen is like an old arcade game. I had the 758DR and it was stolen. I went with this one as a replacement since I rarely used the spot meter. Like I said, It works just fine but doesn't seem to have the build quality of the 758.

              I am currently in a lighting class and have been using it to take light readings of my subjects in the studio. I love being able to get the right settings for the light that I'm using. I can't really say anything bad about the light meter a few of my classmates have the same one and are not having any problems. But for me, mine has a few problems that can happen even with the best electronic devices (a odd dot on the screen and the battery indicator not acting right)

                I've been using an l-358 for some time now, but my eyesight is getting worse. So I thought the LCD dispaly would be better and it's great. I also like the size better and the way you can access everything from the main screen. I use the Pockectwizard system for Hypersync with my Elinchrom strobes and Quadra and love being able to trigger them as well. All in all I'm very happy so far. The case it comes with is OK but buy their optional case, its much nicer.

                  I love the screen of this light meter. It is easy to use and change the settings even if you are not read the manual. I like the pocket wizzard triggering funcion and that feature was the reason to buy this model. The only thing I don't like is the pouch which came with the meter. It is open on the top and I don't think that it is going to protect the meter in every day use. But anyway It is not a big deal, next time I'm going to buy the pouch with a zip, and it's just a few bucks.

                    I do wish it had a bigger done. Other than that I can't fault it. The touchscreen makes life easier and the software included is very effective.

                    I owed also the 758DR prior to this one. I bought this for the additional feature to do remote ratio control on speedlite. It works great and much small footprint that my 758DR. The batter is AA which is cheaper than special A123 that 758DR requires.

                      Use the Litemaster Pro L-478DR primarily for portraiture photography. Lite, compact, functions as the manufacture states. Us in conjunction with wireless triggers. Takes all the guess work out. Easy to use. love the touch screen. Great addition to the camera bag for armature and pro alike.

                      I use this product in most of my photography.It is easy to use. The touchscreen is intuitive, the menus are simple, It encourages you to explore the meters capabilities, touch the measuring mode to match how you like to work. The meter integrates with the Pocket Wizard product freeing you completely from cords. It is truly a wireless product that is keeping pace with the growing wireless technology. I think the beauty of this meter is that it allows you to work light on your terms. The meter gives you the data and you determine how you use this information.

                      Comments about Sekonic Litemaster Pro L-478DR Light Meter:

                      I usually don't ask for much at Christmas, but after attending a Shane Hurlbut lighting class, getting a light meter was on the top of my list of equipment I wanted. So, thanks to my wife for buying me this little piece of heaven. Next year socks.

                      I have a Sony A7s and it's tricky to figure out proper exposure with the S-Log the camera provides.

                      The L-478DR has made it possible for me to measure exposure correctly so I am not stuck in post for hours trying to fix the faulty footage.

                      The touch screen is easy to manage and it is highly customizable for my needs in the field or in the studio. The case it comes with is kind of cheap so I would suggest getting the higher end case that Sekonic also sells. Thank you again Jennifer, aka my wife.

                      Because of the popularity of L-478DR the internet has ample tutorials featuring the unit and has helped relieve any confusion. I am new to the light meter world so this was important tackling the learning curve.

                      I have a Norman light system I am looking forward to using with it next.

                        Easy to use with good implementation of touch screen. For the price, the spot meter should be included. It is really necessary to do a proper calibration of camera/lens combos.

                          Was looking for a reasonably priced meter to help me nail my exposure for both in studio and on location. So far this has done a stellar job. Easy to handle and easy to understand. The only thing I'm worried about right now is the touchscreen... so I handle this with extreme care.

                            I shoot stills and video and this fits the bill. Replaces my Minolta Flashmeter IV. Very accurate right out of the box. Can customize the display to your needs. One downside is the batteries. Why they went with AAA's I don't understand. Underpowered. Eats batteries. Should have made it with AA's . So buy some Enloop AAA's and a charger with it.

                              I use this meter with portable flash units and pocket wizard radios that are not always convenient to access. This meter allows me to make power adjustments to the flash units from the meter itself. A real time saver. Hats off to Sekonic!
