    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.

        Comments about Gossen DigiPro F2 - Flash and Ambient Light Meter:

        In the 1990s I had a Minolta meter (now Kenko) and that was a good meter. Before my departure from the incomparable U.S.A. I purchased a Sekonic L-558R. It was an inaccurate Philippine made piece of expensive junk.I tried recalibration against this Gossen meter, but that was problematic each time.

        As a film photographer I find this Gossen digipro f2 a little jewel. I am basing my opinion on peel apart film test shots. I do not develop film until I have exposed at least 8 rolls of 120.

        Obtaining an EV for flash, with this meter, is painless.

            Comments about Gossen DigiPro F2 - Flash and Ambient Light Meter:

            So far, so good. Fairly easy to use. Nice case and neck strap. Chose this over the Sekonic 478 after reading about bugs/issues with the Sekonic. Has been working fine in measuring ambient and the one time I tried it as a flash meter my readings fell beyond the scale. I do however think I probably just entered the wrong shutter speed. I was in a hurry and therefore just wound up dialing-in exposure on my own. Assuming I can go back and easily use this as a flash meter, I would change my rating to 5 stars. Bought this when a rebate was available. All things being equal, I think I made the right choice for my needs.

                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.

                              Comments about Gossen DigiPro F2 - Flash and Ambient Light Meter:

                              I'm a portrait photographer and I've used Gossen for over 20 years, and they are simply the best brand at any price. If you can afford one, get one. You won't regret it.
