Sure, your digital camera has built-in metering abilities and yes, often the camera does a good job. However, that doesn't mean there isn't a place for a dedicated incident light meter. When trying to get the perfect exposure, it's tough to beat using a light meter.

We get to see a light meter in action in the latest Two Minute Tips video from Adorama and photographer David Bergman. Bergman uses a Sekonic L-308S-U Flashmate Light Meter, which costs around $200.
