|A light meter is a device used to measure the amount of light. In
photography, a light meter is often used to determine the proper exposure for a
photograph. Typically a light meter will include a computer, either digital or analogue, which allows the photographer to determine which
shutter speed and
f-number should be selected for an optimum exposure, given a certain lighting situation and
Gossen Luna Star GO 4032 F2 Light Meter. Gossen is again setting standards with the Luna-Star F2 Meter. One of the most valuable features of the Luna-Star F2
is the rotating measuring head which is equipped with a diffuser dome for incident light measurement. The head will rotate through 270 degrees. This feature allows
the photographer to see the large display while taking the readings. Remove the incident diffuser dome and you can measure reflected light and subject contrast
easily. The combined readout on the display is shown in both digital and analog form and provides a wealth of information. Both flash and ambient light are measured
at the same instant, it is no problem to determine the balance between flash and ambient light. Last but not least, the Luna-Star F2’s outstanding ease of use
with just six buttons overs all of the operations required.
JTL LM-6 Light Meter for Incident & Reflected, Flash & Ambient Exposure Readings.
The KENKO KFM-1100 light meter, is an easy-to-use, accurate,
full-featured hand-held light meter for reading both ambient and
flash light. For most people the minimal, clearly marked buttons
will make using the meter second nature in very little time. The
side of the meter only has 3 buttons, the largest is for taking
measurements, the other two set on a rocker are UP/DOWN input
buttons for changing F no., shutter speed or ASA/ISO. This
simple, easy-to-use ergonomic design feels comfortable in your
hand and its logical control layout will please photographers
who want to concentrate on the subject, not their equipment.
Large, easy to read LCD_displays measurements in F no. format
with large numbers in 1/10 stop increments and in more common
1/2 stop increments in a pointer scale across the top of the LCD
display. LCD also has a back-light for easy reading in low light
situations. The meter is sensitive enough for ambient (existing)
light to be measured for a shutter speed range from 30 minutes
to 1/8000 of a second. In Cine mode it can be used to read
frame-rates of 8 to 128 frames/sec. For measuring flash, the
meter has modes to either trigger the flash using a sync-cord or
set to non-sync cord for manual flash triggering. The aperture
range that can be displayed is from f/1.0 to f/128. Useful in
mixed flash/ambient lighting situations

Sekonic L-208 Light Meter (Black/White). The Sekonic L-208 TWINMATE is a palm-sized analog light meter for hand-held incident and reflected ambient light readings. Small and light, the L-208 TWINMATE can also be mounted onto your camera or bracket - using the included hot-shoe adapter for quick, camera-positioned reference readings as you work. Though designed primarily for entry-level users, long-time shooters look to the Sekonic L-208 TWINMATE as an accurate, easy-to-stow, back-up meter. Owners of rangefinder cameras who desire and incident and reflected meter also appreciate the included shoe mount. A sliding lumisphere enables accurate incident readings. Retract the lumisphere, and you can now take reflective readings. The silicon photo diode receives light at an angle of 33-degrees , which is slightly narrower than the angle-of-view of a normal lens. A hold-and-read function maintains the reading for 15 seconds after releasing the measurement button to allow you time to evaluate your settings. A single, long-lasting CR2032 lithium battery powers the show.
Since its introduction, Sekonic’s L-358 Flash Master has become the best-selling digital flash meter in its class. Weather-sealed against the nastiest of working conditions, the L-358 delivers dead-nuts accurate flash and ambient light reading in both incident and reflected modes.For mixed lighting scenarios, the L-358 displays the combined exposure values of both flash and ambient light sources, including the percentage of flash in total exposure in 10-percent increments. Dual ISO buttons allow for quick exposure factoring when working with two differing film speeds, film and Polaroids, or other situations where comparison readings are desired.
