Measure light in any form: flash or ambient, reflected or incident even a tiny spot. The Gossen Starlite digital meter provides clear, accurate exposure settings, photometric readings or even Zone System ranges for still photography or cinematography all in one compact and rugged, yet stylish, water-resistant unit.
This digital meter not only does everything you'd possibly want a state-of-the-art, multifunction meter to do, but does it all exceptionally well.
Controls are ergonomically positioned for easy one-hand operation, and all data is clearly displayed on a large, self-illuminating, easy-to-read LCD panel.
A unique 270-degree swivel head with built-in viewfinder and multi-position diffuser allows you to instantly select any of four different measuring modes:
1 degree spot measures reflected light through the viewfinder
5 degree spot measures reflected light through the viewfinder
Incident light with raised diffuser--spherical
Incident light with lowered diffuser--flat plane and any of six different measuring methods:
Shutter priority mode
Aperture priority mode
Exposure value (EV)--can be used directly with certain MF lenses
Contrast--determines the brightness range of any subject
Averaging--utilizes up to nine separate measurements
Zone system--where areas of different brightness are assigned to graduated "zones" of gray.
In Cine mode, the Starlite All-In-One provides filmmakers with a full range of features including a preset shutter angle of 180 degree adjustable in ten-step increments.
In the Photometric mode, light intensities and luminance can be measured for both ambient light and flash with results displayed in LUX, footcandle, cd/m2, footlambert and more.
By using the corresponding DIP switch, the Starlite can be converted easily and quickly into a fully functional, comprehensive CINE meter for Movie Filmers. For those photographers who need a competitive edge, a preset shutter angle of 180° can be adjusted in 10 step increments. The Starlite is remarkably well equipped for precise photometric measurements of light intensities, illumination and luminance in ambient light or flash modes. The metering results are indicated in the display in LUX, Footcandle, cd/m2, Foodlambert, and mo
