Sekonic Digitalmaster SE L758DR Digital Exposure Meter
The Sekonic DigitalMaster was discontinued in January 2017.  No matter how sophisticated camera exposure meters have become, there is still an argument for using a handheld meter like the SE L758DR. With this meter you can:

  • Take incident light reading
  • Take multiple spot readings and average them out
  • Balance daylight and flash

I’m a great believer in spot metering, especially for pinning my highlight and shadow readings.  By taking multiple spot readings, I can average them out and check the contrast between my highlights and shadows and check to see if my resulting exposure is within my cameras’ dynamic range.

I never understand why camera manufactures don’t at least allow us to take 3 spot readings and average them out in camera.

You can still buy the  SE L758DR on amazon.

Panasonic DMC-FZ1000EB Lumix Bridge Camera (25-400mm LEICA DC Lens, 20.1MP)

Check out the video below

I used to have a full set of Nikon cameras and gear until I started travelling around a lot. I thought long and hard about keeping my Nikon gear, or going to a bridge camera. Finally, I sold my gear and settled for the Lumix FZ1000. This is a great travel camera. I know it has been superseded now, but its still available and for the price buys you a lot of camera. You can get the FZ1000 on amazon: Buy the Panasonic FZ1000 on amazon
