Sekonic Announces Flashmate L-308X Light Meter

From Sekonic:

The Flashmate L-308X builds on the popular L-308 series of light meters, combining a familiar blend of compact and intuitive design with the very latest features, making it the ideal light meter for today’s filmmakers and photographers.

The pocket-sized Sekonic L-308X is packed with all of the latest functions, including all of those found in the L308S and L-308DC light meters. Features such as a customised new screen display and LCD backlight, Aperture (F) Priority photo mode and ISO 850, to match the native ISO of Canon cinema cameras like the C300, make the L-308X one of the most versatile and affordable photo/cine light meters available today.

Kenji Sawai, Sekonic Executive Office of Sales and Marketing, commented, “With just one camera, today’s shooters have become multimedia image makers. We have used our expertise and experience as a recognised industry leader in light measuring tools to create the perfect entry-level hybrid light meter for today’s up-and-coming photographers and filmmakers”
