Re: Only Chumps Bother To Pre-Visualize...

Please explain how a light meter is better than a DSLR histogram. I contend the histogram is superior in almost every respect.

You can measure balance between different light sources, you can measure contrast in a scene quite easily. The histogram is also based on the jpg preview and is affected by wb, contrast settings, styles and what else there is to tailor the jpg. None of those things have any impact on the captured raw data though, despite altering the histogram in camera.
