Good flashmeter – OMES F4S 1.9" LCD Light/Flash Meter - Black Reviews

posted by nrh2005 on 04/04/2013 Certified Owner

Involvement:Expert (understands the inner workings) - Ownership:1 week to 1 month

Pros:
- it works exactly within the limits dealextreme says - it's light, portable and very easy to use - works on flash light and environment light - it needs only one 1.5v AA battery - it has sync port
Cons:
- my unit came with the flash button loose so misplaced. I had to open the unit to put the button in place. This is one of the reasons to give 4 stars to quality - the manual came only in chinese and I don't read chinese ! After long shopping at dealextreme, this was the first time I received something with the manual only in chinese. This is the other reason to give 4 stars to quality - the maximum aperture to flash is f/4, so take a time to plan if you will need to shot with an aperture bigger than f/4 some day AND you will need a flashmeter in that occasion.
Other:
The major difference between this OMES F4S model and the OMES L4 model is that the L4 doesn't work with flash, only environment light.
Bottomline:
If you need a flashmeter that works since f/4 with flash, and works with environment light also (since f/1), so this is the equipment to you. No one sells cheaper today and no other flashmeter will have the resources for that price.
