About the Sekonic LiteMaster Pro L-478DR (With Elinchrom Radio Transmitter)

  • Flash Power Control & Radio Triggering
  • Incident Metering for Ambient & Flash
  • Range: -2 EV to 22.9 EV at ISO 100
  • Cine Setting: Frame Rate & Shutter Angle
  • 2.7" Color Touchscreen LCD
  • Flash Analyzing Function
  • Filtration Compensation Mode
  • Illuminance/Luminance Measurements
  • Contrast Function & Memory Mode
  • Custom Exposure Profiles & Calibration

Equipped with a large and intuitive 2.7" color touchscreen LCD and now featuring built-in radio flash power control and triggering for the 2.4 GHz Elinchrom EL Skyport wireless system, the LiteMaster Pro L-478DR-U-EL Series Light Meter from Sekonic will make incident metering for ambient and flash light super simple. The major ability of this system enables complete control of the flash's power in 0.1-step increments. Along with this, the 20-channel system has separate selection between 4 groups with measured values maintained for ratio determination. Users will also be able to control modeling lamp power as well as set ALL groups at once.

Notable for the L-478 light meter series is the large color touchscreen, which allows for fast control over settings for both ambient and flash metering. The meter is quite capable as well, able to function within a range of -2 to 22.9 EV at ISO 100. And, for the current crop of hybrid shooters this model expands on its standard stills functions with two distinct video modes: Cine and HD Cine. These settings give access to frame rate selection from 1-1,000 fps as well as shutter angle settings from 1-358° as well as ISO 850 for Canon cinema cameras.

Guaranteeing the best possible performance is a suite of functions and features that will ensure users have the best tools available to them. Among these is a flash analyzing function that uses ambient and flash simultaneously to allow for shooters to dial in their preferred mix. Also, using the included Data Transfer Software users will be able to do Exposure Profiling for their camera by using the optional 5° viewfinder, showing dynamic range limits and knowing that you will have an accurate exposure. Alongside this is a Filtration Compensation Mode that allows for the meter to account for filter factor, which can now be done at up to 12 EV for landscape shooters using high-density ND filters. Other features include a contrast function for comparing brightness, a memory mode for 8 readings, and illuminance or luminance measurement.

  • Lumisphere receptor head rotates 90° right and 180° left and retracts for conversion to a flat diffuser
  • Optional 5° viewfinder for spot metering
  • Ambient light measuring modes include aperture priority, shutter speed priority, TF priority, CINE, HD Cine, illuminance, and luminance
  • Flash can be measured with PC sync terminal connection, cordless, or radio triggering
  • Measuring range at ISO 100 of -2 to 22.9 EV with incident light or 3 to 22.9 EV with reflected light
  • ISO range of 3 to 409,600 in 1/3 steps, including 850 for Canon cinema cameras
  • Other functions: exposure profile, mid tone function, exposure compensation, filter compensation, multiple cumulative function, memory/clear/recall function, average function, contrast function, auto power off, touch panel lock
  • Runs on 2 AAA batteries
  • Firmware upgradeable via mini-USB port
