When it comes to Light Meters, as well as Accuracy & Durability, the Sekonic
L-398 Studio Deluxe has been the mainstay of working photographers &
cinematographers for over four decades running & still is Today. Small,
compact, and easy to use, the Sekonic L-398 incorporates a battery-less
amorphous photocell, which enables you to take accurate ambient light readings
The Sekonic L-398's swivel head allows you to hold down the metering button
and "walk the set" to check light levels. Release the button, and the needle
locks down the meter's analog display needle for easy-to-read exposure
calculations. Exposures are displayed for both still and cine applications.
Incident measurements can be taken with the over 180-degree Lumisphere for
general readings of three-dimensional objects, or with the Lumidisc selective
area readings, measuring the lighting ratios between highlights and shadow
areas or light falling on flat-field objects such as artwork, measurements
outdoors or under bright studio lights.
For reflected readings, a flat Lumigrid replaces the Lumisphere. If you plan
on shooting with a fixed ISO and shutter speed, an optional Slide Set (Direct
Reading Slides) that make it easier to take readings in fast-paced shooting
scenarios. The Sekonic L-398 Studio Deluxe makes an ideal prime or back-up
meter for still or motion picture shooters.
