I looking to buy a light meter that is compatible with my elinchrom FX 400 RI. Any recommendations ?
As pointed by Chinmoy, you can use any light meter with any light (as long as the meter is capable of measuring flash exposure)... they are connected only by a PC/Sync cord (or attach any wireless trigger to it) to trigger the light for measurement.
There are some lights come with built in Pocketwizard receivers and Sekonic meter with built in pocketwizard triggers! But insanely expensive and not that much a value (to me at least!)
In case of FX Ri, the lights has built in receivers - I believe, you can use a Elinchrom Eco/Speed/Universal triggers to trigger the light OR the PC cable.
Since we are on topic, i assume you have the FX Ri... i am looking to buy BXRi series in bangalore... any idea of availability & price? ..and I dont see whats the difference between FXRi and BXRi
OR is it just a different label for indian market? anyone has some knowhow?
