Sekonic L-308DC Flashmate – Small and lightweight meter for accurate flash and ambient meaurements. The new Sekonic L-308DC FLASHMATE offers an affordable, lightweight meter with the latest component technology and precise calibration for accurate digital exposures. It features a choice of Full, 1/2 or 1/3 step selectable aperture settings. It measures ambient or flash exposure either by incident or reflective metering modes. And a built-in Lumisphere provides a quick switch from incident to reflected light measurements and a Lumidisc (included) offers precise contrast and brightness measurements. The LCD panel has also been improved for better readability. Information such as ISO, measuring modes and selected settings has been redesigned similar to the very popular Sekonic L-358 FLASHMASTER.
DigiCineMate adds both an HD and standard Cine Mode allowing you to make accurate readings to one tenth of a stop for shutter speed and frame rates in video mode.
Sekonic Corporation Japan provides the widest range of light measurement devices for photographers around the world. Established in June 1951 as Seiko Electric Industries Co. Ltd. the first Sekonic brand exposure meter introduced was the revolutionary Sekonic P-1. Over the years, worldwide demand for exposure meters resulted in the growth and construction of a new factory in June of 1959. By August of 1961 the Tokyo facility was authorized as a JIS Designated Factory for "electric exposure meters for photographic use". Through the years Sekonic meters were so well recognized that in February 1984 the Sekonic Digipro X-1 and L-518 meters, were taken into space on the NASA Space Shuttle. Today Sekonic continues to produce and develop meters for every aspect of photography serving the film, video, cinematography and digital photographic marketplace.
