I need to be able to measure exposure when using my SB900 on manual but don't know which light meter can do the job...
Best light meter to measure sb900 speedlight(3 posts) (3 voices)
You camera is the best for the SB900.
The problem is that the SB900 sends out a pre-flash that will mess with the meter. Most just fire a couple of test shots to get the look. Digital is free and instant to view.
If you really want a meter any in the last 20 years will do. Not much has changed at all. I use a Sekonic L-358 that it seems almost everyone has but rarely uses unless you use studio flashes often.
Gosh, I just got a Sekonic L-308S which seems fine for the studio flash... and very inexpensive... $200 at B & H... or less if one qualifies for a discount... And I just noted this post this morning... Thanks TaoTeJared
