Voigtlander Light Meter VC II is an invaluable accessory which makes a great back up meter for modern digital cameras, or adds a new lease of life to an older unmetered camera.


Our own experience is that an external light meter always allows you to capture the accurate exposure on the field as opposed to the in-camera metering that may not always be correct or the histogram may suggest otherwise. Even though the modern digital cameras have great dynamic range, however, any loss of details on the field (when under / over exposing) can never be added back or retrieved using any post processing software, especially when you have not been able to correctly capture ambient light to be used as a reference point. The TTL metering in digital cameras have a very narrow field of view, is always reflective, and there are several real-world examples that exists to show how an internal light meter can fail you in a scene that has complex mix of whites & blacks. 


The professionals use external light meters, however, our minimalist little gem is both intuitive, accurate and very easy to use without complicating your system giving excellent results always
