I didn't really think that I would have much use for one light meter of this caliber, but the price was good and I wanted to experiment. I found the functionality and ease of use of this light meter to be excellent.

I own both the Gossen and the somewhat equivalent Sekonic light meters.

Gossen StarLite ~$670

Sekonic L-758DR ~$499

Comparison:

1) The Sekonic is much less expensive with many more features for the money

2) The Gossen just seems "cheap'. The battery cover is a pain to remove. You need a coin and even then you have to shake it or pry it off. There is no real sealing. The Sekonic, on the other hand, has a very positive latch and the cover has a rubber gasket. I can open and close the Sekonic ten times in the time it takes to remove the Gossen's cover once.

3) The Sekonic has an adjustable eyepiece ( correction ) for the spot meter while the Gossen does not.

4) The Gossen's case is a very tight fit and you have to work to put it in the case and to remove it. The Sekonic's case is somewhat better.

5) The Sekonic is relatively easy to configure. The Gossen has DIP switches inside the ( inacessible ) battery compartment. The manual for the Gossen is confusing as the DIP switch's numbering is INTERNALLY is 4..1 from the top DOWN and the manual numbers the opposite. ( You have to figure this out. The illustration showing the actual settings for the DIP switch is correct ) Unless you are playing around, you probably only have to set the Gossen's DIP switch a few times.

6) It takes a LOT of torque to raise or lower the Gossen's lumisphere; the Sekonic's is much easier to raise or lower.

Accessibility:

7) For people with photosensitive / pattern sensitive epilepsy, the Sekonic is probably the worst piece of equipment I own or have ever used. It is just blink, blink, blink. You turn it on, it blinks for ten seconds. You change the mode, it blinks for ten seconds.
