Interfit INT410 Reviews

Flash Meter is rated 2.7 out of 5 by 31.
Rated 3 out of 5 by from Decent Enough. I shoot film, and rely on my Sekonic. Knowing that it isn't going to last forever, I have purchased this as a backup. It stays at my studio now in case I forget my Sekonic, or my Sekonic dies. This meter required calibration out of box. You can calibrate it with guide numbers if your GNs are accurate, or up against another meter which is what I recommend. I have had to re-calibrate a couple times in the last two years of ownership. It's a back-up. But due to it requiring calibration from time-to-time, it isn't reliable because if I need to use it, it is because my Sekonic isn't. I am now shopping for a brand-new Sekonic.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great response time on delivery 1. B&H Great Rate on delivery. Great price Thank you. 2. The Meter- It is a step up from a Wein. Its fundamental. Its Reliable to date. I am a professional photographer with a rare need to use it occasionally. However, Clients expect a professional to have one it; I needed an economical but professional looking flash meter. If you need an economical meter: This is it. Only time will speak to its reliability but so far thumbs up. If you expecting fully automatic light meter that will remotely operate your camera and flashes. This is not the meter. But its a good fundamental meter that will give you an accurate strobe readings and insight.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Very useful tool As a commercial photographer, I use a Dynalite powerpack flash frequently on location. I have always used translucent light modifiers (softboxes and panels). A reliable flashmeter is essential with this method fo determine exposure. The Interfit satisfies this need. A good feature is the PC connection to trigger the flash and activate the metering. Also, the price is a bargain compared to alternative meters. A meter I had previously allowed to combine ambient light with flash output. The Interfit does not. Another plus is that the Interfit is powered by a standard 9-volt battery, and not some expensive and hard-to-find special battery. In short, I am pleased with the acquisition.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Good flash meter for the price For less than $50, this unit works well. It gives me accurate and consistant readings. It is NOT a $300 unit, so setting are mechanical. It's easy to use; However, the ISO number are off, so you will read MAYBE 1/3 stop on either side depending on where you decide to set the ISO, but you'll know (Hey it's less than $50). So if you are setting up a basic studio, or just want to learn lighting techniques, this unit is for you. If you are a professional, and need reading to 1/10 stop, then spend the $300.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Low cost meter accurate results I purchased this meter for location shoots. I have read where some users have had problems with the battery door. Even with this negative feedback I decided at this price I would give it a try. I was able to load the 9 volt battery with little trouble, although it was tight. However more importantly the meter is spot on and also gives partial f stop measurements for an accurate reading. I have yet to try it for incident light readings but in the studio with strobes or flash it meters every bit as well as my Shepard meter. I dont like that the incident light sphere has to be removed which means it can be lost easily. I would have liked to see a sliding sphere for incident light metering instead.

Rated 1 out of 5 by from Lousy meter Bought it. First photo shoot, readings were intermittent.After a while, I got frustrated and just trusted myhistograms. It's gonna take a trip with me for another shootsoon...at the shooting range. Expertise: Semi-Pro Problems Encountered: It barely worked. Previous Equivalent Item Owned: Sekonic 358- This is like comparing a Yugo to a Ferrari. Items I Recommend: Save your receipt.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from onthedot I use this as a backup meter (moreover, my assistant double checks me using this meter). It is spot on accurate. I bought it quite by accident when I dropped my Sekonic L-358 off a bridge where I was doing a fashion shoot. I had to run into town and the only photo store had this one meter. I had to make do, and was astonished with the accuracy and consistent readings. I use it all the time in my home studio and it always measures dead on with my more expensive meters. If you need a cheap, accurate flash meter, this has got to be it. There isn't a lot of functionality and control, but it gives you enough to accurately measure flash readings. I've read reviews about the battery compartment, but I replace the batteries so infrequently that I never paid attention to it.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Nice little handy gadget Very easy to use flashlight meter. Just select your ASA/ISO and flash the light either with a sync cord directly from the flash meter or with your camera. Camera set to its sync speed (in my case 125)and this little baby show the apperature setting. Interfit service is great. My first flash meter did not work and was directly replaced by Interfit. The only thing that's a bit hard to do is to place the battery in it's tight compartment and close the lid. It takes a bit to get it done, but it will fit and close completly.

question

i have looked EVERYWHERE for the manual on how to use this thing. Have no idea what shutter speed i should be using when using this meter.
Asked by: Anonymous
When using the Interfit Flash Meter, you do not need to set a shutter speed on the meter. This is because the shutter speed has almost no affect on the exposure when shooting flash photography. You set the shutter speed on your camera to the flash sync speed which is usually 1/60 or 1/125th of a second depending on the model of your camera.

question

I purchased this unit and I don't seem to be able to use it outdoors...the light meter in the camera was giving me 1/125 @ f16 iso 100 and the Itnerfit seems to be stuck as f32...have I done something wrong or does this unit only work indoors or in low light levels?
Asked by: Christopher L.
This meter sucks! I bought one and returned it immediately. Not sure what you're going through specifically. But, it's probably just a faulty meter. I've worked with several meters mostly sekonic brand. I purchased this meter trying to be cheap because I misplaced a meter, but I can actually work faster with nothing than with this meter.
