Discussion in ‘ Miscellaneous Equipment ‘ started by eumeniusDec 28, Dec 28, 1. Hello friends, I want to know your opinion about Gossen Digiflash small exposure meter. I think it’s possibly a good holiday gift for me, digjflash if it’s a crap Is it precise and sensitive enough?
Can I use it, say, in night scenes? Is it robust enough? Does its small diffusor give enough precision with incident metering?
Well, may I use it with my LF gear and slide film, too an especially stupid question? Is there something really sinister in this small piece of hi-tech? Cheers from Moscow, Zhenya.

It’s a great pocket meter. The Digisix is just as accurate as my Minolta Flashmeter III for ambient readings, but since the dome is small, you do have to be a little more careful that you’re pointing it in the right direction.

I use it all the time when I don’t want to carry my bossen meter. It will also take reflected readings from nearby objects, and you can use it like an averaging meter by sliding the dome over and sighting over the meter to estimate what it’s looking at.
It’s okay in low light, but I don’t think any meter is that great really at night. Better to use rules of thumb in most cases. Dec 28, 3. I too am pleased with my Digiflash. It takes a moment but is not very hard to learn how to key through the functions with the 2 buttons, and because the meter is small, the numbers on the dial are also small, but the meter works great and is very compact and light.
Dec 28, 4. I’ve been using a Digiflash for a number of months now since Apriland I love it. See the links below for some observations in shooting under ballasted lights, flourescent and HID lamps that cycle on and off rapidly.
There are some oddities that can be worked around if you are aware of them. I always put it in the bag or a pocket, something I rarely did with the Luna Pro F because of bulk.
It’s also handy for setting an exposure and then comparing for relative adjustments as light changes see my APUG article for that. It also works very well one-handed, which is great if you’re shooting handheld and the other hand is needed for the camera.
Gossen Digiflash – a worthy gadget? | Photography Forums
You can find the instructions online in. It’s not all that complicated. My suspicion is that it’s PIC based, and programming takes care of linearizing response, which is very well matched to my Luna Pro F across the range of the Digiflash.
See more of my observations and others at: I really like mine a lot and use it constantly. A couple of weeks ago someone jostled me at an indoor soccer game and knocked mine three feet onto a concrete floor. No damage at all, and it works fine. Karen Nakamura’s put hers through the clothes washing machine and it came out working fine.
