Sekonic’s Speedmaster L-858D-U, capable of measuring flashes in high-speed sync mode, is now available. It was first unveiled at Photokina last year.
The exposure meter has a touchscreen control panel and works with optional radio transmission modules to control and trigger Elinchrom, Phottix or PocketWizard radios and flashes directly from the meter itself. The L-858D-U also offers flash duration measurement, from 1/40 to 1/55,500 second, and an HD Cine Mode for use with cinematography cameras at varying frame rates and shutter angles.
According to the manufacturer, this meter is especially sensitive in low light environments, both for incident and reflected light measurement.
Just want Elinchrom/Phottix triggering without the other fancy features? Try the cheaper Litemaster Pro L-478DR.
The Speedmaster L-858D-U and its add-on radio modules are on sale now.
