What is your view on using Sekonic 758D light meter for metering for landscapes? You can match the exposure reading of the light meter to the dynamic range of the Z7 hence you can get perfect exposure and no need for bracketing.

Hello again Steve as always, insightful and to the point. A quick question and I am sure it’s me, when you discussed the smaller point number under the matrix metering how do I set that? Sorry if I’m being a bit dumb here

Hi Steve, a great informative video, as always. Thank you. I’m wondering about your comments on AF area mode D9…I use a Nikon D7500 and I can’t see anything like that in my menu. Am I missing something? thanks, Lynn

Another top notch video with excellent information. Most sites keep regurgitating the same info. You always come up with new stuff. I’ve gotten more useful tips from your videos than all the rest combined. Thanks you and keep up the great work!
