    The L-308X Flashmate light meter is the latest version of a design popular with student and amateur photographers for 25 years. It now reflects the capabilities of modern cameras by featuring full integration of both photo and cine/video functions. The auto backlight feature ensures you can read the display in any light conditions. For photo use, the L-308X can measure both continuous (ambient) light and flash light, with either shutter or aperture priority, with a 1/10th stop accuracy. Video and cine users can select frame rate or shutter angle settings and measure illuminance. Metering can be either from reflected or incident light, with a convenient built-in sliding diffuser. The last reading is retained in memory, and ISO and battery status display continuously for convenience. Powered by 1 x AA battery (not included).
