Spot with Digital Display

  • The L-758C-Ufeatures a rectangular 1o parallax-free spot viewfinder. In dim or bright light situations, the L-758C-U spot viewfinder displays shutter speeds, aperture and more. The built-in spot meter measures both reflected ambient, flash or combined lighting. The optical finder also features an eyepiece with an adjustable diopter.

Shutter Angle

  • 1o to 10o in 1o increments, from 15o to 270o in 5o increments plus 12o, 17o, 22o, 144o and 172o individual settings

Cine Speeds

  • 1 thru 1000 fps. (frames per second)
  • Analog f/stop Display
  • f/0.5 to f/45 (in 1/3 steps)

Light Measurement Modes

  • Footcandle 0.10 to 180,000
  • Lux 0.63 to 190,000
  • Cd/m2 0.25 to 190,000
  • Foot-lambert 0.07 to 190,000
  • Ambient EV (Incident) EV -2 to EV 22.9
  • Ambient EV (Reflected) EV 1 to EV 24.4 (with 1o spot viewfinder) Flash (Incident) f/0.5 to f/161.2 Flash (Reflected) f/2.0 to f/161.2

Filter Compensation Settings

  • Selectable on ISO 2: 85, -n3, -n6, -n9, -A3, -A6, -A9 or +/- 5.0EV in 1/10 step increments for Incident and Reflected independently
  • Optional Plug-in Radio Transmitter Module
  • Electronic flash units and/or cameras can be triggered wirelessly with the optional plug-in digital radio Transmitter module (compatible with all PocketWizard Digital Radios). Simultaneous triggering and measuring of flash units up to 100 feet away is possible. With its new easy-to-use Selective Quad-Triggering control (4 zone lighting control), L-758C-U offers quick selection of which flash unit to trigger and measure independently with a touch of a key. Now you can individually measure several flash units wirelessly by the touch of the meter's measuring button, without walking over to each light and turning it on or off.

Memory Mode

  • Up to nine readings can be memorized and displayed on the analog scale independently in incident or spot metering modes in both Aperture and Shutter Priority Modes.
  • Using Memory recall and clear, you may review all memorized readings individually on main display and selectively delete individual readings, or clear all simultaneously.
  • Full, 1/2 or 1/3-step Selectable Readings
  • Both shutter speeds and apertures can be displayed in either full, 1/2 or 1/3-step increments plus 1/10 stop units to match your film or digital camera; selecting these increments is quick and easy with custom software menu settings.

Exposure and Calibration Compensation

  • Independent incident and reflected exposure compensation
