Does the L-478DR Live up to the Hype?

ORMS Direct is a South African photo store who runs the very active blog, ORMS Connect. Recently, they got the opportunity to test out the Sekonic L-478DR to see if it’s really all that it’s cracked up to be.

After a frustrating shoot involving a 3 meter tall boom arm and way too much time spent going up and down a ladder, Ben, the author, was on the lookout for a more professional solution. For him, the ability to take accurate readings and adjust his strobes’ power from the same place was the perfect solution. He writes:

“Less running around making adjustments, less calling on assistants to change power intensity, more time to concentrate on the most important aspect of the shoot: fulfilling your client’s brief effectively.”

Cheers to that! Read the full review on ORMS Connect where he offers some special advice for Elinchrom users, such as himself.
