The L-478-series meters are especially useful when using flash to lighten shadows or reduce background detail. That’s because they measure ambient and flash simultaneously and automatically indicate the percentage of flash in the total exposure. Touch the screen to adjust settings to get the perfect the ambient flash mix. The meter’s analog display uses color-coded lines to graphically display the relationship between ambient and flash components.
Calibrated to your Camera with exposure profiling
Every camera system is unique. Optical, mechanical and imaging components all act on each other to produce slight differences in the dynamic range and exposure. Knowing the limits of your camera enables making better exposures with less post-processing.
Sekonic’s pioneering Data Transfer Software*1 enables quick dynamic range mapping and meter calibration for the most precise control of light. Create and store up to ten profiles with Sekonic or X-Rite brand targets*2 or use the touch display to directly enter profile information obtained from other sources.
Connect L-478 series to computer and transfer up to ten profiles. Stored files can be recalled and displayed at the touch of a finger. Color-coded dynamic range and clipping point information is clearly displayed on the meter’s analog scale. Exposure latitude warnings alert you when the exposure exceeds the range of the camera.
