      Yes this works, but I am not impressed with how few settings it has. Why it doesn't have 48 or 50 fps is quite annoying and I am very surprised it doesn't have this very common shutter speed. I am having to use 60 fps. This product just seems like it should be much cheaper since it doesn't have as large a variety of settings I would expect.

          This meter is easy to use and very accurate. I mainly use it in the studio to meter my monolights. The build quality is very good, not cheap. It also comes with a nice carrying case. If your looking for a good light meter, this is one I can highly recommend.

            A light meter should be easy to use, set up, and it shouldn't be cluttered with stuff that you'll never use. This is the best that I am aware of and it's incredibly accurate.
            Best part is that you can use and adjust it wearing gloves.
            I use a Nikon Df, that has the best on board meter that you can get in a camera, but I still use my F2 to tweak my exposures.

            Functioning is good. But build quality is really cheap. This is made in Germany but feel like a China made item. I have a Minolta and Sekonic also. They both drop on the floor many times. Still working well. Nothing broken. But this one, I am not confidence to try. And, the off center test button I don't like it. 3 stars is the best I can do.

                    True to the Gossen name, an excellent piece of equipment. Simple to use, and accurate. The Digi-pro doesn't have the low light sensitivity of the Luna-Pro, but then the Luna-Pro doesn't do flash. Between the two I cannot think of any situation that couldn't be handled.

                    If I see any negatives with the Digi-pro it is that the exposure compensation calculator seem backwards. A positive number means to reduce exposure and viice-versa.

                    The Digi-pro may seem a little pricey, but if it lasts as long as my Luna-Pro (40+ years), it will be well worth the investment.
