Inspired by the popular legacy of the L-308 series that began almost a quarter of a century ago, the NEW Sekonic FLASHMATE L-308X addresses significant features and functions that meet and exceed the needs of today’s Photo and Cine/Video shooters. The L-308X includes the familiar blend of compact, lightweight and intuitive design, which has made the L-308 series so popular, as well as the Cine/Video features of the affordable DigiCineMate L-308DC.

The versatility of the latest DSLR cameras has expanded the capabilities and creativity of today’s image makers. With just one camera, today’s shooters have become multi-media image makers, blending both still and moving images seamlessly, for the ultimate storytelling. Offering all the features expected from the latest generation L-308 series, the NEW FLASHMATE L-308X features an LCD backlight, Aperture priority (Photo Mode), and ISO 850 setting (for native ISO Cine Camera’s). The FLASHMATE L-308X is the perfect blend of Photo/Cine features all in one lightmeter.


Three Meters in One:

Whether your shooting assignment is capturing images at a wedding, producing short training videos for a local business or producing a cinematographic documentary, the FLASHMATE L-308X accommodates your lighting challenge with accurate and comprehensive measurements that put the image maker in control.


PHOTO Mode:

The FLASHMATE L-308X offers full exposure control for photographer’s on-location or in the studio. In addition to Shutter Priority Mode, the NEW Aperture Priority Mode offers the carefree depth-of-field control provided on most DSLR’s. In addition, a range of ambient and flash functions including Cord and Cordless flash measurement, as well as ambient EV measurement are fully displayed.


HD_CINE Mode

A compact and portable choice for today’s videographers, the FLASHMATE L-308X offers an impressive range of features only found on more sophisticated models. Determining the correct exposure reading and controlling the lighting situation with the shutter speed and frame rate settings, provides aperture readings within one-tenth stop accuracy.

 


CINE Mode

Designed with the professional in mind, the FLASHMATE L-308X can take on the challenges of digital cinematography. Select from the right combination of frame rates and shutter angles to achieve the exposure control necessary with one-tenth stop accuracy. Truly universal, the FLASHMATE L-308X offers Lux (lx) and foot-candle (fc) readout enabling a quick set up of lighting in a compact, affordable and easy-to-use design.
