Measurements of Incident Light, Reflected Light, Flash Light
DIGISKY is the first of a new generation of compact and lightweight multi-function exposure meters from GOSSEN. The clear, bright TFT colour
screen provides an instant, easy-to-read display in any mode, whatever the ambient conditions, while the large controller ring and selector button
make for simple and quick one-handed operation.
Up to three camera users and an additional movie profile are individually adaptable. All measuring values may be indicated in full, 1/2 or 1/3 f-stops.
So the DIGISKY is ideal for photographers who demand flexibility, accuracy and consistency.
The built-in remote radio trigger removes the need for cables to fire Studio Flash, resulting in a much more organised, more efficient and less cluttered working environment. Another great reason why DIGISKY is an essential tool for any serious Photographer.

DIGISKY Characteristics
DIGISKY is ultra-compact and lightweight
DIGISKY is ultra-compact measuring 139mm long, 60mm wide and a mere 16 mm deep! Although it weighs just 100 grams – including the LithiumIon rechargeable battery – the DIGISKY is no lightweight when it comes to features and specifications.
DIGISKY includes a TFT Colour Graphic display
The clear, bright 2.2 inch display provides an instant, easy-to-read display in any mode, whatever the ambient conditions. The display standby time
is user variable via the quick and easy menu.
DIGISKY is always up-to-date through software download
GOSSEN is the first exposure meter manufacturer to be able to offer free software upgrades. The latest updates will always be available on our
website, ready for quick and easy download, ensuring that your DIGISKY constantly benefits from our latest developments. What’s more, the
DIGISKY’s built-in battery will continue to charge while the meter is connected to your computer.
DIGISKY has a completely new Control Interface
The large controller ring and selector button make for simple and quick one-handed operation. State-of-the-art microprocessor technology in the
DIGISKY allows quick and easy navigation of all functions, providing a highly intuitive operating system.
DIGISKY is individually configurable
DIGISKY can be easily adapted to each user’s requirements using one of the built-in profiles (one for movie and three for camera use) which can
be individually selected and programmed with ISO, EV-steps (meter value resolution), RF triggers and filter values.
DIGISKY is the perfect CINE-meter for Movie makers and cinematographers
DIGISKY offers a MOVIE function for the setting of ISO, EV steps, CINE speeds, Sector Angles, Photometry and Filter Values. These measured
values appear in both analogue and digital display formats, meaning even the smallest deviations can easily be identified.
DIGISKY triggers your studio lighting effortlessly
In addition to manually capturing flash exposure data, DIGISKY can also trigger your flash equipment/studio lighting either by cable or by Radio
Frequency. In the RF mode, up to 4 flash groups can be selected and triggered on 8 different radio frequencies, allowing the simultaneous use of
different lighting sets in the same location.
DIGISKY easily switches between light measurement methods
A simple turn of the diffuser ring changes between reflected light and incident light measurement. The flat diffuser has been designed for photometric measurements.
DIGISKY measures and evaluates subject contrast
DIGISKY measures the contrast of a subject as well as the illuminance. The average value can be constantly shown in the display and, by key
DATA, Minimum/Average/Maximum values can be accessed, making the meter ideal for HDR photography.
