    Not anytime soon however my fallback plan is that my motorcycle is worth just about what I've put into camera gear.

    No, but I'm working on it. I just bought all this shit. I need time to produce some work!! :run:

    If you want to see some of what I do for a living, you can visit www.horizonvp.com and look at clips of some of my video work.

    They're actually quite simple. They simple measure the light that is illuminating your subject. From that it tells you what f/stop and shutter speed combo will give you a perfect exposure. Light meters are probably more useful in determining lighting ratios however.

    It will tell you how much light your flash is putting out and then tell you what f/stop to use. You determine what power setting to set your flash to based on the readings.

    like he said; its more useful for adjusting multiple light setups...you're camera's meter of a small trial and error could meter one flash..but when you're using multiple lights you really have to use a flash meter

    especially if you're working with film. using one of these is really fucking solid, you don't have to tool around with looking at the back of your camera. just use that little guy and you're set.

    Exactly. Plus there are times when I want to measure the output of the flash realtive to the ambient light and have the flash one stop under or over the ambient reading.
