[SOLD] Sekonic L-398M Studio Deluxe II Light Meter (Worldwide) Marketplace Listing

Item for Sale
Sekonic L-398M Studio Deluxe II Light Meter

Asking Price
US $70

Item Location
Tampa, FL

Item Description
Sekonic Studio Deluxe II Light Meter, model L-398M. The meter looks brand new and includes all standard accessories:
Light Meter
High-Slide (for metering in very bright conditions, like direct sunlight)
Neck Strap (nice, long strap so you use the meter without taking it off your neck)
Instruction Manual
Factory Calibration Check Card

This is a classic meter, easy to use and very accurate. Set your iso, take a reading and turn the dial to match the needle reading and find your desired f/stop (or shutter speed) and there's your shutter speed (or f/stop). Also displays EV value. Includes dial that you can set to a previous reading so you can recall it later (monitor changing conditions, perform a high/low reading, etc.). Also displays +/- 1 & 2 stop readings if you want to over/underexpose from the metered values.

I tested it against my Polaris digitial meter and results were dead on.

Note that this is not a flash meter. Incident/reflected light only.

Sorry about changing mind as I am thinking of selling my Rollei Autoflex TLR and hence I will cut the need for a light meter. Truly sorry for changing mind so quickly.
