I have owned and used my Seconic L-28C2 in 36 years. I accidently dropped it head first 10 years ago, but fixed the small piece at the top with some good glass fibre mending glue. And the photo meter just keeps on working without a flaw. Thank you for a fantastic product! Close

Just wanted you to know that I have had my Sekonic meter for what seems forever and it never fails to amaze me. It is great for snow scenes as it gives the perfect exposure without any compension on my part. It is rugged, has stood the test of time and best of all, it needs no batteries..... Close

Instant reading of full range of aperture/shutter combinations
The analog dial gives you full range of exposure settings for both still and cine applications at a single glance. The analog needle indicates the brightness in foot-candles.
Amorphous photosensor eliminates need for batteries
The photocell in this meter generates its own energy to move the analog meter needle. The L-398A is always ready to go. There is no need to change batteries.
Swivel Head to position incident dome and maintain full view of display
Easily position the Lumidome for best light reception as you position the meter body for best reading. The swivel head enables "walking the set" to check the evenness of light levels.
Continuous reading plus needle lock for easy and accurate readings
Press and hold the measuring button to take continuous readings in varying conditions. Release the measuring button to lock the analog needle in place for exposure calculation.
Lumidisc for adjusting illumination contrast and measuring illumination intensity
Take selective area readings or measure several lights for ratios between highlights and shadow areas. Also used for measuring light falling on flat-field objects such as green-screens and artwork.
Lumigrid for measuring reflected light
Replace the Lumisphere with the Lumigrid to take reflected light readings of subject areas from the camera position. An optional Slide Set (Direct Reading Slides) enables adjusting the reading meter's reading range for bright subjects.
Memory pointer retains prior reading
Just align the pointer with the analog needle to transfer brightness readings to the exposure dial. Once set, a second reading can be made to compare brightness of different lights to adjust light ratios.
Accessories
Supplied with Lumisphere, Lumidisc, Lumigrid, High-slide, case and neck cord. Set of 11 direct reading slides sold separately
