is the top-of-the-line model for semiprofessional and professional users. 1° spot metering allows for detection of the smallest differences in brightness at a distance with the optical viewfinder, as well as for precise exposure.
The compact STARLITE 2 is laid out for use in the studio as well as outdoors and is equipped with an adjustable diffuser for flat and spherical measurements. It’s capable of incident and reflected light measurement for flash and ambient light to determine photographically relevant exposure values which are displayed in 1/10 or 1/2 stop increments depending on the selected setting. The STARLITE 2 masters all common lighting situations for analog and digital photography, as well as filmmaking, with outstanding precision and time-tested quality.
reflected light measurement as 1° spot metering or 5° selective metering, incident light measurement with spherical or flat diffuser, measuring probe with optical viewfinder.
repetition accuracy: ± 0.1 EV, exposure time for standard series adjustable in full or 1/2 increments, digital display of measured values in 1/10 increments, analog display of measured values in 1/2 f-stops.
perture or shutter priority pre-selection and exposure value display, digital display in 1/10 increments and analog f-stop display in 1/2 increments.
measurement of subject and lighting contrast, display of contrast at the analog scale as f-stops in 1/2 increments.
most recent settings and last measured values are retained.
a mean value generated from 9 measurements is displayed digitally in 1/10 f-stop increments, as well as at the analog scale rounded off to 1/2 f-stop values along with the range of measured values.
subject contrast management by means of measurements in accordance with the zone system, direct display of measured values at the zone scale.
flash exposure measurement (cord/non-cord) with adjustable synchronization speed, display of ambient light ratio and multiple flash calculation.
determination of f-stop for film speeds ranging from 2 to 360 fps and open aperture angles from 5° to 355°, measurement of illuminance or luminance.
thanks to splash-proof housing.
conversion of f-stop/shutter speed combinations by simply pressing a key
entry or measurement within a range of ± 9.9 correction values in 1/10 steps.
highly practical one-hand operation, function selection via the diffuser ring, settings via rotary knob and just a few keys, advanced functions via DIP switches.
assures good legibility in dark settings.
battery level, over-range or under-range.
