  1. Thanks for the reply. Interesting. So it seems footcandles/lux are used when you want to express a "fixed" unit of incident light measurement, but regardless of any other factors. The other two guys, foot lamperts & cd/m², also measure with a "fixed" unit of light but they measure reflectived light (or light being emitted by a particular object). And since we measure with "m²" that also is typically used outside the U.S. I guess they are just an extension to the idea of incident and reflective light measurement. Please let me know if I'm wrong! Other than that, splendid! Thanks for the reply.
  2. Greetings all, I'm excited to be a part of a community so generous with it's knowledge. I'm really trying to wrap my brain around the Sekonic L-758cine light meter and it's advance capabilities. This might well be a very tremendous question... Footcandles, Lux, Foot Lambert, and cd/m². I'm hoping to understand in what situations it'd be best to use these light measuring features. Are these just a preference? Where and why would you use them? Thank you sincerely for your time.
