Sekonic Prodigi Colour C-500 Lightmeter : The colour meter is an essential tool for clear and high detail photography. It displays colour temperature and compensation values in LB/CC index or filter numbers. The C-500 is the first meter to read the spectral sensitivity of color film, CDCD (CCD) and CMOS sensors used in current digital still and DV cine cameras. The C-500 color meters are not exposure meters. Their main function is "pre- production" light source color control. With all the emphasis on Color Management and Workflow done electronically and in the camera or in post production. Controlling the light in front of camera is the first step in color workflow especially in mixed light sources. The colour meter is perfect choice for both advanced amateur photographers and professional photographers. Simultaneous readings of flash and ambient light are available from 1 to 1/500 second. Six custom settings that enable displaying shutter speeds in 1/3, 1/2 or full stops. Nineteen presets enable adjusting display values to compensate for differences in film types, light sources, digital sensors, or personal preference. The C-500 offers Ambient measurement from EV3 to EV16.3 and flash light measurement with reading sensitivity from f/2.8 to f/90.9. The C-500 displays the selected colour temperature in 100K or 10MK-1, LB Index display in 1MK-1 or 1daMK-1, LB filter display in Kodak/LEE or Fujifilm standards, illuminance in foot candles or lux, both or no display. An eight-character readout on the display allows creating custom naming for easy identification of the compensation value. With its compact size and simple 2 AA battery power source, the small yet rugged C-500R fits in shirt pocket, making it easily transportable under almost any conditions or working scenario.
