Ramon Guzman’s Sekonic L-98

Sekonic users love to hold onto and use their gear for decades. They also like to let us know about their gear. Ramon Guzman has written us about his vintage gear. Here is the story in his words.

“I bought the light meter and a Nikon F camera in 1965, while I was stationed with the Air Force on the Island of Okinawa. I’m glad to let you know both the camera and your light meter still work. The L-98 meter I had not used for at least 20 years, but I decided to give it a try. I put in a new battery, and to my surprise, it still works. It sounds like a commercial, but it’s a fact. I wish to congratulate Sekonic for making such a high quality and reliable product.”

He also wrote, “I’m considering purchasing a new Nikon D90 or D7000, and you can [be] rest assured if I do, I’ll be extremely happy to purchase another Sekonic light meter again.”

Thank you for sharing your story, Ramon. We bet you’ll like the advancements we’ve made in the last 46 years!
