Determining Dynamic Range with Exposure Profile Targets (separate purchase)
Make tests under daylight and studio lighting. For HDSLRs and cameras with a dynamic range under 7 stops, use the Normal Mode for a 3-shot bracket (-3EV, 0,+3EV) of the Exposure Profile Target II or ColorChecker Target. Select Extended Mode for a 5-shot bracket (-8EV, -4EV, 0,+4EV, 8EV) for cameras that have a greater dynamic range. Make a spot reading of 18% reflectance tone and incident reading in front of target and record data. Shoot the bracketed shots based on incident light measurement. The Sekonic Exposure Profile Targets and Xrite ColorChecker targets are available as a separate purchase from your local reseller.
Entering Data
Download test images into computer. If shot in RAW, convert to TIFF or JPEG for computation. Use Normal mode for cameras using shutter speed settings or “Cine” for cameras using frames per second and shutter angle. Enter ISO, incident, and reflected light shooting data. Then select and align images for processing and press OK to watch the Sekonic Data Transfer Software program graph the dynamic range of your HDSLR, Cine-Video camera. Save the data for transfer to the L-758Cine-U.

Programming Meter

Switch OFF L-758Cine-U. Connect it to the computer with USB cable and switch L-758Cine-U ON. Select up to three camera profiles. Press transfer. Switch OFF L-758Cine-U, disconnect, and switch ON to begin using.

Watch a video by Ryan Walters to see how it's done.

Full information Spot Viewfinder
The 1-degree spot meter has a broad reading range from EV 1 to EV 24.4 (0.07 to 190,000 FL). Its large, bright viewfinder with diopter correction and fullinformation data display give you everything you need to make the right exposure decisions without having to take your eye from the eyepiece.
Memory Mode and Latitude Display
Up to nine readings can be memorized in incident or spot metering modes. An indicator appears on the analog display each time a measurement is memorized andthe total number of memorized measurements appears numerically on the screen.Memorized readings are retained when switching between reading modes. Thisprovides a fast and simple way of retaining and analyzing shadow, mid tone andhighlight exposure readings. Digital readings can be recalled and/or cleared at anytime for precise exposure control.

The dynamic range of your digital camera or film can be programmed into theL-758CINE-U to create a Latitude Display that mirrors the range of your system.This important guide will let you know when readings fit within the latitude of yoursystem and when they are outside the range.


Contrast Function

The contrast function switches the data displays to a simple, direct EV readout to enable measuring scene brightness and create lighting ratios faster than ever before.

Incident Light Metering

  • Measure the key light and press the AVE/EV button. Press the measuring ..button to read the fill light and the digital display instantly switches to EV to show the brightness difference with tenth-stop accuracy.

Reflected Light Spot Metering

  • Establishing scene brightness has never been this simple. Spot meter a highlight ..area and press the AVE/EV button. Then measure the shadows to instantly see the difference in scene brightness without ever taking your eye from the viewfinder.
  • Press the memory button to compute an averaged mid-tone and display all three readings on the dynamic range line of the L-758 CINE's analog display. This quick and easy method gives you all
    the information you need to make every exposure decision.
Dual ISO Settings
Dual ISO buttons enable quick adjustment of exposure when working with two ISO speeds and making adjustments for filter compensation or calling up one of seven commonly used Wratten filter factors.
All-Weather Design
All buttons, switches and compartments are sealed and the meter housing has been designed to endure rugged outdoor conditions. Ideal for location shooting, in rainy or humid environments.
