LIGHT METERS
INTRODUCTION
TO LIGHT METERS
Incident Measurement
Reflected
Measurement
Choosing Hand Held
Exposure Meters
Hand-held exposure meters
measure light falling onto a
light-sensitive cell and converts it into a reading that
enables the correct shutter
speed and or lens aperture
settings to be made.
Hand-held exposure meters
come in many variations, each
with specific benefits. By
using the appropriate meter
for your specific needs, you
can be assured of consistent
professional results.
Incident vs. Reflected
The two distinct techniques of
measuring light, incident and
reflected, each have their own
advantages in different situations. Hand held meters can
give you both capabilities,
along with features not found
720
in even the most advanced
cameras with built-in meters.
The 18% Neutral Gray
Standard
Light meters are designed to
measure light in a consistent
way. They cannot see the
subject and interpret it as a
photographer can. For example, a light meter cannot distinguish a black cat from a
white cat, a red balloon from
a blue balloon, nor textured
powdery white snow from a
shiny white auto paint finish.
Given the same lighting situation, each of these objects
would reflect a different
amount of light.
Reflected measurements
would indicate different exposures for each object. Incident
measurements would indicate
PHOTO - VIDEO - PRO AUDIO
the same exposure for each
object, to render a consistent
exposure. Light meters are
calibrated to assume that all
subjects are of average 18%
reflectance, or neutral gray.
The use of the 18% neutral
gray standard allows a reflected light meter to render correct readings for “average”
subjects in “average” lighting
situations. (The value of 18%
neutral gray is also referred to
as Zone V in the Zone System,
an advanced black and white
exposure method.)
Incident Metering
The incident meter is aimed
at the light source and measures the light source falling
directly on a scene and is not
influenced by the reflectance
of the subject being photographed. For more precise
control of the photograph,
incident meters are also used
to measure various levels of
light from multiple sources
falling on separate parts of a
scene.
Using Incident Meters
Incident metering measures
the intensity of light falling
on the subject and gives
accurate and consistent rendition of the tonality and
contrast regardless of
reflectance, background,
color, and shape. Subjects that
appear lighter than gray will
appear lighter. Subjects that
are darker than gray will
appear darker. Colors will be
rendered accurately. Highlight
and shadow areas will fall
naturally into place.
NOTE: Most light meters allow
for both reflected and incident
light readings.
www.bhphotovideo.com
Advantages of Incident
Measurement
Incident meters measure accurately and consistently and are
not affected by variances in
reflectance of the subject or
scene. Because of this, incident
meters give the most accurate
exposure for the majority of
situations and subjects.
Reflected Metering
Reflected metering reads the
intensity of light reflecting off
the subject and may vary
according to variances in
tonality, color, contrast, background, surface, or shape.
Meters are designed to regard
all subjects as 18° neutral gray
reflectance. Reflected measurement of any single toned area
will result in a neutral gray
rendition. Subjects that appear
lighter than gray will reflect
more light and result in an
exposure that renders it darker.
Subjects that are darker than
gray will reflect less light and
result in an exposure that renders it lighter.
Using Reflected
Measurement
Hand-held reflected light
meters and built-in camera
meters read the intensity of
light reflecting off the subject
and measurements are taken
from the camera position.
Generally, reflected measurement of a wide subject area
can include many different
reflective surfaces or colors
that can bias the meter and
result in inconsistent and erroneous readings. Accuracy of a
reflected measurement can be
improved by reading an 18°
neutral gray test card placed in
front of the subject.
INTRODUCTION
LIGHT METERS
TO LIGHT METERS
Flash Meters
Reflected
Incident
White
Plate
Gray
Plate
The flash meter measures the
brilliant and instantaneous
burst of light produced by electronic flash sources and displays
the correct aperture settings.
Flash meters usually measure
the incident light falling on a
subject, however some meters
also measure reflected light as
well. Many flash meters take in
to consideration the effects of
available light.
Color Temperature
Meters
Black
Plate
Spot Meters
The spot meter allows precise
readings to be made of small
areas of the scene. Its narrow
field of view measures light
reflected from as small as a
1-degree circle. Any number
of areas can be measured to
create a set of values for a
particular scene, this enables
the photographer to determine the most suitable lighting arrangement and exposure settings that will produce the desired result.
In-Camera Spot Meters
Although a number of
advanced SLRs offer spot
metering capability, the
metering angle is directly
related to the focal length of
the camera lens in use. Every
time the lens is changed, the
effective spot meter angle
changes. With a normal lens
in use, the spot-metering
angle may be 15° or more. A
hand-held 1° spot meter consistently allows the most
selective measurement of distant subjects as well as small
areas in the scene.
Advantages of Reflected
Spot Measurement
A spot measurement is ideal
for special situations including measuring distant subjects, backlight, extreme
brightness range, highly
reflective surfaces, or when
an incident meter cannot be
positioned directly in front
of the subject. Reflected spot
measurements of an 18% gray
midtone, or an average of significant shadow and highlight
measurements, allow the photographer to make an exposure that will record detail,
tonality and accurate color.
A color temperature meter
measures the color quality of
ambient light, the light from
electronic flash, or a combination of both.
The meter analyzes the color
characteristics of the light
source(s) exposing the subject,
and then displays the required
filtration to color balance the
scene for the film being used,
if any, as well as color temperature in degrees Kelvin.
Color temperature meters usually include calibrations for
daylight and tungsten films.
Color temperature meters may
not provide accurate readings
for light sources with narrow
band spikes and depressions in
their light distribution.
Sodium vapor, metal-halide,
and fluorescent lamps are
examples of light sources that
are difficult to measure. Colorbracketed test exposures are
therefore recommended to
verify that the recommended
filtration is correct.
Color Measurement of
Ambient Light
Ambient light refers to a continuous source of light falling

PHOTO - VIDEO - PRO AUDIO
on the subject, such as daylight,
tungsten or other sources.
If the ambient light originates
from only one source, accurate
measurements are easily made.
However, if lights from multiple sources illuminate the subject, color measurements are
more complicated.
• When the light consists of a
single color temperature, the
meter should generally be held
facing the main light source
and as close to the source as
possible.
• When the ambient light
comes from multiple light
sources with different color
temperatures, each light source
should be measured and the
appropriate color correction
filter sheets used.
• When ambient light and electronic flash are used together,
the meter should be pointed at
the flash. The required filtration that is required will be
indicated.
When using shutter speeds
that are lower than the flash
synchronization setting, the
meter will show the modified
filtration that is needed for
proper color balance.
When light-balancing filtration is indicated, it is preferable to use gelatin-type filters
in front of the light fixture(s),
rather than the camera lens.
Keeping the optical path free
of filtration avoids problems
caused by dust, etc. on the filter(s). Also filter factors need
not be taken into account.

AUTO METER VF
Auto Meter VF (8058103)
A new, compact and lightweight digital exposure meter for measuring ambient light and flash with or without a sync cord. In all measuring modes, with
reflected or incident readings, it is a very reliable meter. Stores and averages
2 separate readings making it easy to determine subject contrast range or
lighting ratio. Calculates the ratio of flash light to ambient light in relation
to the total illumination. Whenever you take a flash light reading, the
Analyze scale is displayed on the LCD data panel. After a reading, you can
also do a simulation to see how changes to the shutter speed affect the proportions of ambient light and flash light. The analyze scale shows the proportion of flash light in the total exposure reading as one of five levels. In
addition, several custom settings are possible. For cinematographers, the
Auto Meter VF has ten framing rate settings. Plus, the extended ISO range
can be used to factor in filtration correction.

Booster II Set (8045)
Consists of a Booster II, spot-probe, microscope, 35mm film-plane
and SLR eyepiece attachments. The Booster II is a high-sensitivity
receptor that takes measurements off the focusing screen of a largeformat view camera when the spot-probe receptor is attached to it.
Useful for close-ups and macrophotographs. Direct readings through
the microscope’s optics are possible. Flash exposures can be calculated
with the Flashmeter. Highly accurate measurements of flash or ambient light at the camera’s film plane are possible with the 35mm filmplane attachment. This method is more accurate than measurements
taken through the SLR eyepiece, because the Booster II measures the
light that actually passes through the camera lens and strikes the film.
The SLR eyepiece attachment enables taking centered, circular TTL
exposure readings through the camera’s lens. This function is important if you own an SLR camera that does not have a built-in meter.
Also useful for taking TTL flash measurements. Requires one 6v, four
LR44 or equivalent battery.

COLOR METER IIIF
Color Meter IIIF (8055103)
The Minolta Color Meter IIIF
is a color compensation meter
for ambient and flash with
correction value memory. This
makes it easier for photographers to maintain consistent
color under various types of
illumination. The meter measures the color of the light illuminating the subject and
determines the filtration
required to correct that illumination for the film in use.
When measuring both ambient light and flash, selecting
the Color Meter IIIF’s analyzing function will subtract the
ambient light and display only
the measured results for flash
light. Measurements can be
taken for any of the three
major film types: Daylight
(balanced to 5500k), Type-A
Tungsten (balanced to 3400k),
or Type-B Tungsten (balanced
to 3200k). Measurement
results can be displayed as
light-balancing and colorcompensating indexes, Kodak
Wratten filter number and CC
index, or photographic color
temperature (determined color
temperature based on film
sensitivity). Display of Kodak
Wratten filter numbers makes
selecting filters quick and convenient; if 2 Wratten filters are
necessary, the Color Meter IIIF
displays both numbers.
Color Meter IIIF users can
store their own personal correction values for the recommended filtration. Correction
values for LB and CC indexes
can be stored in any of the
meter’s nine memory channels
to custom-tune meter readings
for the desired color reproduction. The correction values are
added to the initial measured
values to calculate the final
displayed results.

Digital Spotmeter (36141)
Selectively pinpoints with extreme accuracy the correct exposures in the deepest shadows and the brightest highlights. Measures contrast ratios and serves as a brightness meter in TV or motion picture studios.
Its 1° pinpoint metering angle is comparable to the field of view of a 2,000mm lens for a 35mm camera.
It has a measuring range of EV 1-20. Measures exposures by four different methods: general measuring,
averaging, highlight reading and shadow reading. Ideally suited to the most exacting needs of any photographer. Weighing only 9.1 oz., its bright fixed focus, through-the-lens viewfinder presents a slightly
enlarged (1.15x life size) image. The silver-coated pentaprism, seven-layer multi-coating of its lens and
eyepiece and fine-grooved fresnel lens all combine to create an extraordinarily brilliant viewfinder, effective even in the dimmest light. A 1° circle engraved in the center of the viewfinder outlines the imagearea being measured. When the trigger-like metering button in the pistol-grip handle is squeezed, the
appropriate EV number lights up in the LED panel.

ZOOM MASTER L508
Zoom Master
L-508
The L-508 measures both reflected ambient and reflected flash, as well as mixed lighting. The unique
zoom spot viewfinder is parallax-free and can be zoomed to the ideal measuring angle anywhere from 1°
to 4° for any subject area or distance, without being restricted to a single narrow angle. The L-508’s zoom
spot feature is ideal for measuring distant objects, highly reflective surfaces, extreme contrast scenes, backlighting situations, or specialized applications including the Zone System. The sealed, 9-element optical
zoom viewfinder operates with a simple touch and accepts standard Nikon brand eyepiece diopters for
eyeglass wearers. The L-508 is also a full-function incident meter for ambient, flash or mixed light measurement. Incident measurement allows the photographer to read the light falling on the subject, without
being mislead by the subject's color or reflectance. The 270° swivel head permits ideal positioning of the
retractable lumisphere allowing the photographer constant viewing of the large, easy to read digital display panel from any angle. The retractable, dual position function eliminates the need for interchangeable
spherical and flat incident diffusers. In extended position, the lumisphere gives accurate incident measurement of normal scenes and lighting. In recessed position, the lumisphere acts as a flat diffuser and is used
for directional, selective measurement and comparison/ control of shadow and highlight areas for determination of brightness range or lighting ratio, or measurement of flat surfaces for copy work.
