Master is the ultimate light-measuring tool for cinematographers and videographers as well as digital still shooters. Offering the most extensive range of fps (frames-per-second), cine shutter speeds, and shutter angle settings, it meets and exceeds the demands of Professional Cinematographers and Professional Still Photographers.
The key to precise lighting and great exposures is understanding the dynamic range of your camera and calibrating your meter to work with it. Long a time-consuming necessity, Sekonic has automated the process to one that takes just minutes. Sekonic's DTS Version 3.0 enables measuring the dynamic range of your HDSLR or Digital Video Camera and calibrating a Sekonic L-758Cine-U DigitalMaster meter to that specific data. Precise metering has moved to a new level of excellence.
The automated process requires recording images of one of Sekonic's Exposure Profile Targets or one of X-Rite's ColorChecker series targets, available as a separate purchase. Once recorded, the processed TIFF or JPEG image files are imported into Sekonic's DTS software for processing and mapping. Measured data from industry-standard targets can also be entered manually.
After processing, a USB cable is used to transfer the data to one of the Sekonic L-758 meters. Up to 3 camera profiles can be stored in the meter. Any number of profiles can be stored with the software.
Once loaded, the Sekonic L-758Cine-U makes incident and reflected-light, spot readings that are precisely tuned to the dynamic range of the profiled camera.
