Hi I've got a Light Meter Sekonic L-328 Digilite, since a couple of months ago I noticed its readings where not too accurate but now its readings are getting worse, if the meter says 5.6 I have to set the camera at least 8.

I have read the FAQ at Sekonic web about calibrating the meter, I know how to make the tests, but then how do I adjust the meter?

Any idea or suggestion?



PD. I hope I've explained myself, English is not my mother tongue.

You did a good job at getting your question across so please don't feel bad about your English.

There should be an adjustment inside the battery door. You will see a very small wheel with a slot in it for a small screwdriver and the outer edge of the wheel is marked "+" or "-" depending on which way you want to go with your adjustment.

Another option is for you to take the meter to a good camera shop that does repairs. Some shops have accurate light sources that they use as a reference standard for meters and they will calibrate your meter for you and it should not be that expensive.

Good luck.

Thanks a lot, I didn't even give a thought about looking there. I'll have a look when I arrive home.

If it doesn't work I'll take it to a shop.

Thanks for the reply but unfortunately there is not any adjustment inside the battery door.
