Sekonic L-208 Light Meter

Sekonic L-208 Light Meter
Code: SE208
In stock

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. Powered by 1 x CR2032 battery (not included); includes case.

More Information

  • 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.
