    I have a new Sekonic L-358 meter and I didn't know about the narrower scope accessories. Depends on how expensive that would be if I decide to get one. I will check it out, though.

    I had a Sekonic L-358 a couple of years ago and because of a change in lenses, I didn't need it any more so I sold it. Then because of a later manual lens addition I decided to get another meter. This time I bought a Gossen DigSix but it uses a watch-type battery. The battery doesn't last long. When I needed the meter, it didn't work so I installed a new battery. A couple of months later, it was dead again, so I sold the meter. Now I have the Sekonic, again because I like the selenium cell. No more battery failures.

    I just found out how much the Sekonic 1 degree scope costs $199.95. Ouch!

    I studied your article and charts, this morning, and find it very interesting, and easier to grasp than I thought when I first saw it. It's still good to know this stuff even if we don't use it in everyday photography.

    I did some digging around to try to find the spot meter angle of my Nikon D5100 but can't find anything on it. All I can find (including my camera manual info) is that spot metering covers a 3.5 mm circle or 2.5% of the frame, on the selected metering spot. That makes me wonder, though, if the lens would factor in. Let's say a zoom lens is used. Zooming in to the maximum (narrowest angle) would give a more accurate reading than when zoomed out to minimum (widest angle). I'm starting to confound myself with all this. I think I'll go outside and cut my grass.

    Incidentally, all of this digging around led me to the rangefinder capability of my camera. It can be used for exposure and also for focusing a manual lens. It just amazes me how the designers figure it all out.

    Don't you just hate it when your camera is smarter than you?

    outdoor exposures have a VERY CONSISTENT light source: the Sun.

    I did some picture with good sun shine, and the pictures are popular in my friends, that why we need take time to have pictures in a sunny day.

    Enjoy ourselves once we are out of office.

    In the event that you are an amateur in photography, or regardless of the possibility that you are a specialist, in some cases you require some get the ideal introduction for your photographs !


    obviously your camera has a truly intense chip and a metering framework, yet now and again, it neglects to pick what is best for your picture.


    Introduction is a blend of opening, screen pace and sensibility (ISO), getting the most ideal setting will bring about having the most ideal picture !


    In this instructable, I will experience the sunny 16 tenet and I will present this presentation tangle that will help you get the best introduction for your shot in any circumstance ! what's more, get your photography to the NEXT LEVEL !


    what do you require ?


    - a camera where you can set your settings physically, M mode. doesn't need to be a costly DSLR ( it is better, however not required), numerous half and halves and even point and shot camera have a manual mode these days.


    - a printer and some paper.


    - take your photography to the following level.
