Web Pricing - Why are the prices on this web site different from those in your stores?
Our stores are staffed with a wide variety of product specialists and support staff, each of whom make an effort to be responsive and pleasant to deal with. We're also able to provide a customer with any item from our inventory to inspect and test. The cost of this customer service is an increased overhead for our in-store prices, to pay for the store space, the training of our employees, and other considerations not present online. We're happy to offer reduced prices online and hope that you will be satisfied with your purchase no matter where you decide to buy.
The versatility of today's cameras is expanding at an amazing rate. Digital SLR cameras are used to record moving images and digital video cameras are used to capture still frames for printing. Whether you are a DSLR videographer, cinematographer, still photographer or involved in any facet of image capture, the Sekonic L-308DC is the perfect meter for you.
The L-308DC is the perfect light meter for today's DSLR and digital cinematographers. It features a full range of shutter speeds, including special cine speeds, frame rates and special group of most used shutter angles. The LCD readout can be customized to display only specific functions needed for the task at hand for fast, easy operation.
Nothing could be simpler. Set the ISO and take shutter-priority or frame-rate priority readings for aperture display from f/0.5 to f/90.9 with 1/10-stop accuracy. Hold the measuring button for continuous readings. Change shutter speed, frame rate or ISO settings after the measurement and the meter will automatically compensate the aperture setting to maintain proper exposure. Snap on the included Lumidisc to set lighting on green screens, adjust ratios and take lux and foot-candle measurements.
Shutter-priority readings of flash light can be made with a synch cord or cordlessly at shutter speeds from 1 second to 1/500th second. Measurements include total amount of light, both flash and ambient, for the speed set for the best exposure. The L-308DC automatically resets after each reading in cordless mode to enable fast adjustment of flash brightness
The brightness of continuous light sources can be displayed in LUX (lx) or Foot candle (FC). Illuminance measurement is especially useful for cinematography, videography, theatrical and other applications that require precise control of light source brightness.
Calibration compensation can be used to tune the L-308DC to film or digital camera sensors or matching the L-308DC to other handheld meters.
Three custom settings tune meter operations and displays to fit your camera and metering requirements
The L-308DC is powered by a single AA-size alkaline battery that is easily obtainable worldwide.
