I don't know if this is the right forum, but I don't really see an exposure and metering forum, so here goes.

What is the advantage of the profiling on the L-758? I understand recognizing the clipping points and DR of a particular camera, but how does it have practical application?

The light meter can't expand the clipping points or squeeze the light its measuring into your camera's DR, so what does it do? I suppose it can tell you whether there are elements in the subject that are outside the DR or clipping range, but does it identify those elements without spot metering?

Aren't the flashing highlights in the camera's monitor a better indicator of clipping on the overexposure end?

I'm guessing there is a graph of the points on the display with a graph of the cameras range so that you could dial in an EV where the overexposure clipping points on the meter and camera graphs align?
