    It is a well know fact that the light meters in our cameras are pretty good. It gives us excellent exposures most of the time. But if you're a professional photographer, that will not be good enough. For starters, you can't measure Flashguns or Strobe lights with your camera's built in meter. You have to use trial and error to work your way to a proper exposure. Shoot, adjust. Shoot, adjust. Shoot, adjust, you know what we mean?. A handheld light meter provides precision. It allows you to see the exposure at the exact location the light is falling. A meter is precise, and having this luxury of precise leads to easily be able to repeat what you already know.You measure your lights, you take your shots, and you adjust to get the creative results you want. That's professional control. That's light mastery.

    Simple CINE Meter for Filmmakers

    Film speed is specified in the CINE mode. An open aperture angle which deviates from 180° can be taken into account by calculating and entering the filter factor as a correction value (COR). After measurement has been completed, the f-stop value is displayed digitally in 1/10 increments and appears additionally at the analog f-stop scale rounded off to 1/2 increments. The photographer is thus provided with basic data for a correctly exposed image.

The high-contrast LCD panel is highly legible and displays values in a clear-cut fashion.
