About Sekonic C-500

The Sekonic PRODIGI COLOR C-500 is the world's only photographic color meter designed to read spectral sensitivity of both color film and CCD and CMOS sensors used in modern digital still and DV cine cameras. Serious photographers and cinematographers know that good lighting and proper exposure are more important now than ever.

With the higher demands of today's digital medium, "garbage in" can mean hours of postproduction. They know that color is a critical factor when multiple light sources are involved. Changing reflectors, adding diffusion or adjusting power levels will result in a color temperature change that needs to be corrected. They know that taking the time to do it right is always a good investment because "perfect in" always looks better than an image that has been adjusted. It has easy, one-touch display. The world's most comprehensive array of color/illumination information.

Sekonic C-500 Features

  • Digital and Film Compatible: The PRODIGI COLOR C-500 measures and displays color temperature and compensation values in LB/CC index or filter numbers for both digital and film cameras. In Digital mode, the color temperature and compensation readings are based on human visual response
  • Illuminance Measurement: The brightness of continuous light sources is displayed in LUX (lx) or Foot-Candle (FC). Illuminance measurement is especially useful for cinematography, videography, theatrical and other applications that require precise control light source brightness
  • Color Values Displayed in Three Ways: COLOR TEMPERATURE DISPLAY (in Kelvin), LB /CC INDEX DISPLAY and LB/CC FILTER NUMBER DISPLAY
  • Flash Color Measurement Flash readings are available in non-cord, cord and wireless modes at shutter speeds from 1 to 1/500 second
  • Flash brightness is read in two intensity ranges, H (high) for high-power studio strobes or L (low) lower power or shoe-mount flash units
  • Nineteen presets enable adjusting display values to compensate for differences in film types, light sources, digital sensors, or personal preference
