Question Flash Meter

Can anyone recommend a flash meter?

I want to use one with a Bowens studio set up, looking for something that works well and won't break the bank, have watched a youtube video that recommended a sekonic L-358. Anyone know if this is one worth considering?

Also can anyone recommend any particular wireless radio triggers? I have heard that some can be had for around 25 via Ebay and are meant to work well, anyone got an experience with ebay ones?

Thanks for any help

Stu

The Sekonic is a good model and although fairly entry level, its all you need and does a good job. As for flash triggers there is a Prolinca one that sells normally for about 40, though you may get one cheaper from the likes of Ebay

Re: Flash Meter

i have the sekonic 358 and for me it does the job. i like to keep things simple since working in real time isn't. i'm not familiar with the one that Stephen mentioned.
