 Designed to meet the needs of the next generation of image makers; the new Flashmate L-308X-U, retains the compact and intuitive design of its predecessors the L-308S and L-308DC while blending their best features and functionality into one meter. Also added in are new features, such as the long-awaited LCD backlight, Aperture (F) priority (photo mode), and ISO 850 for cinema camera’s native ISO; making the L-308X-U truly the most versatile photo/cine meter on the market.

 

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.

Maximum Versatility

Last year, Sekonic introduced their groundbreaking flag ship light meter, the Speedmaster L-858D-U. By merging functionality  for both photography and cinematography into one light meter, Sekonic created a powerful and invaluable tool for image makers  of every kind. Now Sekonic is bringing that philosophy to the immensely popular L-308 series with the new Flashmate L-308X-U.

Three Ways to Meter:

Sekonic created the L-308X-U to be three meters in one to keep pace with the demands of modern image creators. It features three  metering modes: Photo Mode: For still image photographers, featuring shutter or aperture priority display of a full range of ambient  and flash functions including cord and cordless flash measurement, as well as ambient EV measurement

Photo Mode:

For still image photographers, featuring shutter or aperture priority display of a full range of ambient and flash functions including cord and cordless flash measurement, as well as ambient EV measurement.

HD Cine Mode:

Perfect for DSLR and mirrorless videographers who need to take exposure readings and control light using shutter speeds and frame rates. Plus, get aperture settings with one-tenth stop accuracy.

Cine Mode: Designed for use with cinema grade cameras, allows users to select from the most useful frame rates and shutter angles for exposure control with one-tenth stop accuracy.
