Three Ways to Measure Light
  • The L-308DC’s Lumisphere provides incident light readings for nearly foolproof exposure readings and enables lighting that scene before the talent arrives.
  • The Lumidisc is perfect for lighting green screens, adjusting ratios and taking lux and foot-candle measurements.
  • Reflected light readings enable measuring the brightness of subject tones, gray cards, light sources or window light.
Calibration Compensation
Adjust the Sekonic L-308DC to film or digital camera sensors or match the L-308DC to other handheld meters.

Custom Setting
Three custom settings tune meter operations and displays to fit camera and metering requirements.

Illuminance Measurement
Lux (lx) and foot-candle (fc) display is especially useful for cinematography, theatrical and other applications that require precise control of light source brightness. Custom settings allow users to select lux, foot-candle or no display.
