The L-208 Twinmate is a compact ambient photographic light meter which will measure either reflected or incident light. The reading is shown by matching needles and referencing a rotating dial which displays the available shutter speed and apertures. The hatched section under the needle indicates the 33° reading angle of the meter. It includes a shoe mounting plate to allow it to be mounted horizontally on the top of a camera flash shoe.
This is a meter for continuous ambient light (either daylight or artificial), which does not measure flash light. So it's good for tungsten, fluorescent or LED light sources.
It measures reflected light (where you point the meter at the subject), or incident light (where the meter, with its built-in diffuser in place, is pointed at the light source). Incident metering is most accurate with a high contrast subject/background relationship - like a bride's dress in a dark church doorway.
After pressing the side button to take a reading, the red needle stays in place for 15 seconds to allow the dial to be rotated to position the green needle over the top. The shutter speed/aperture options can then be read off the scale.
Powered by 1 x CR2032 battery (not included); includes case.
