A legacy of accuracy pocket-sized and exceptionally accurate, the Flashmate L-308X-U light meter from Sekonic is a compact tool for metering both ambient and flash lighting as well as working in video with dedicated Cine and HD Cine modes. Equipped with a sliding lumisphere, the L-308X-U is able to measure ambient light as well as reflected light via a lens with a 40° reception angle. This meter also has a wide metering range; from 0 to 19.9 EV at ISO 100, and can work with flash within a range of f/1.0 to f/90.9 at ISO 100. Repeat accuracy is also important when metering, which the L-308X-U delivers with a rating of <0.1 EV on repeat exposures.
Three meters in one
Whether your shooting assignment is capturing images at a wedding, producing short training videos for a local business or producing a cinematographic documentary, the FLASHMATE L-308X accommodates your lighting challenge with accurate and comprehensive measurements that put the image maker in control.
The FLASHMATE L-308X offers full exposure control for photographer’s on-location or in the studio. In addition to Shutter Priority Mode, the NEW Aperture Priority Mode offers the carefree depth-of-field control provided on most DSLR’s. In addition, a range of ambient and flash functions including Cord and Cordless flash measurement, as well as ambient EV measurement are fully displayed.
HD CINE Mode
A compact and portable choice for today’s videographers, the FLASHMATE L-308X offers an impressive range of features only found on more sophisticated models. Determining the correct exposure reading and controlling the lighting situation with the shutter speed and frame rate settings, provides aperture readings within one-tenth stop accuracy.
Designed with the professional in mind, the FLASHMATE L-308X can take on the challenges of digital cinematography. Select from the right combination of frame rates and shutter angles to achieve the exposure control necessary with one-tenth stop accuracy. Truly universal, the FLASHMATE L-308X offers Lux (lx) and foot-candle (fc) readout enabling a quick set up of lighting in a compact, affordable and easy-to-use design.
Three ways to measure
Slide the built-in lumisphere to the right and insert the lumidisc (optional) into the provide slot over the light receiver. The L-308X is now ready to measure flat subjects or lighting contrast with precision.
The Lumisphere provides incident light readings for nearly foolproof exposure readings and enables lighting that scene before talent arrives.
Reflected light readings enable measuring the brightness of subject tones, gray cards, light sources or window light.
The Lumidisc (sold separetly) is perfect for lighting green screens, adjusting ratios and taking lux and foot-candle measurements.
