    That light meter is both an incident light meter and a flash meter. If you are using continuous lighting, then you don't need the flash meter part. If you do plan on switching to flash/strobe style lights, then the flash meter would be a great tool to have.

    The model you have linked to, is a rather high end model. If you are not sure if you need that one...then you probably don't need it.
    The more popular model is the L-358, it's a very good all-around meter but even the lower model L-308s would probably be enough.

    Any of the models I listed would work for indoor or outdoor photography.

    The L-758DR is a pro light meter and does some very nifty things.

    Most start with one of Sekonic's less expensive meters: L-308s or L-358.

    Buy the L-308 and add a radio transmitter later when needed. L-308 does inside, outside, reflected, incident, ambient percentage, flash, accumulated flash, etc. Save the bucks for something else. L-308 is just as accurate, too.
