Product Highlights
  • For Ambient and Flash Light
  • With Optional Radio Triggering

The Sekonic L-758Cine DigitalMaster Light Meter is the world's first multi-function light meter that can be programmed to match and be calibrated to the sensitivity of your digital camera sensor or type of film for perfect exposure control.  They have produced an incredible meter that more than meets the needs of the photographic community. This full-featured meter will definitely make everyone happy as it is loaded with every imaginable feature - and then some...

The L-758Cine differs from the L-758DR model in that the 758Cine has expanded cine speed (fps) 1 thru 1000, Lux 0.63 to 190,000, Foot-Candle 0.10 to 180,000, Cd/m to 190,000, Foot-Lambert 0.07 to 190,000 and Preset filter compensation values (including Kodak Wratten filter number)

Expanding on the unqualified success of the L-558R, Sekonic has taken the next step and designed a meter that offers advanced features such as Spot/Incident measurement modes, flash/ambient measurements, flash analyzing, PocketWizard wireless triggering (usable with optional module), plus Exposure Profiling, Pre-Exposure warning, 14 selectable custom settings, and much more. This weather-resistant meter not only meets the needs of the digital community but can also serve the cinema community.

The L-758C measures light beyond the capabilities of your camera and ensure repeatable accurate and consistent measurements. In addition, the dynamic range of a particular digital camera or film can be stored, recalled and displayed. Using the USB transfer cable (included) and the Sekonic Digital Input and Transfer software (included), a digital camera or film's exposure profile can be uploaded from a computer (Macintosh or Windows) to the L-758Cine.

Up to three different digital camera or film exposure profiles can be saved and quickly retrieved with a touch of a button. With its Pre-Exposure warning indicators and adjustable mid-tone settings, the L-758Cine puts the power of digital exposure control in the palm of your hands.

When you need to take a light reading - think Sekonic...

Important
To comply with local broadcast regulations, Sekonic wireless systems sold in the various markets around the world are designed to operate at different frequencies. When purchasing and/or installing a transmitter module or using the meter with a receiver, be sure that the meter, module and receiver are designed to be used in your location and use the same frequency.

The FCC designation indicates the meter and module are designed for operation in the USA/North American market. Frequencies: CH 1 to 16: 344.0 MHz; CH 17 to 32: 346.5 to 354.0MHz

The CE designation indicates the meter and module are designed for operation in European countries. Frequencies: CH 1 to 16: 433.62 MHz; CH 17 to 32: 434.22MHz

When purchasing and/or installing a transmitter module or using the meter with a receiver, be sure that the meter, module and receiver are designed to be used in your location and use the same frequency.

The wireless flash triggering system used in Sekonic meters consists of two parts that are designed to be used together and operate only at a specific frequency. Do not install a CE marked module into an FCC marked meter or FCC marked module into a CE marked meter as this will produce a unit that is not compatible with either frequency.

The L-758Cine model has expanded cine speed (fps) 1 thru 1000, Lux 0.63 to 190,000, Foot-Candle 0.10 to 180,000, Cd/m to 190,000, Foot-Lambert 0.07 to 190,000 and Preset filter compensation values (including Kodak Wratten filter number)
Exposure Profiling
Programmable to respond to light exactly like your digital camera or type of film; The L-758C can be programmed to perfectly match the sensitivity of a digital camera sensor or type of film for perfect exposure control; In addition, the dynamic range of the digital camera or film can also be stored; Up to three Exposure Profiles (digital cameras, types of film, file type or file type) can be stored and recalled quickly and easily. Exposure profiles can be created for the following measuring modes:
  • Reflected measurements (calculated from ISO 3 to 8000)
  • Ambient measurements (calculated from ISO 3 to 8000)
  • Incident measurements (calculated from ISO 3 to 8000)
  • Flash measurements (calculated from ISO 3 to 8000)
  • Four Meters In One
    Independent programming of Flash, Ambient, Incident and Reflected measuring modes customized to your digital camera or type of film
    Working together (Incident and Reflected modes)
    Measured values can be memorized and retained in both reflected and incident measuring modes; For example: A incident reading can be retained and displayed as a diffused mid-tone on the analogy scale (f-stop or EV scale), at the same time as reflected spot reading of a highlight or shadow can be measured and memorized; The result is a Highlight, Mid-Tone and Shadow measurement displayed on the meter's analogy scale
    Spot with Digital Display
    The L-758C Cine features a rectangular 1° parallax-free spot viewfinder; In dim or bright light situations, the L-758C Cine's spot viewfinder displays f/stops, shutter speeds and more; The built-in spot meter measures both reflected ambient, flash or combined lighting
    Pre-Exposure Warning
    Displays and alerts when a measured value exceeds your digital cameras (or type of film) dynamic range
    Super Sensitive Flash Metering
    Measures light beyond the limits of any camera (reflected flash measurements as low as f-2.0 (ISO 100)
    1° Spot with Digital Display
    Rectangular 1° spot viewfinder with vivid display
    Mid-Tone Adjustment
    The Mid-Tone button acts as an exposure shift, moving the highlight or shadow within the dynamic range of the digital camera or type of film; Once the desired high light or shadow setting is selected, the pre-exposure blinking alert icon stops flash, indicating that the value is within the recordable range
    Retractable Lumisphere
    A built-in adjustable incident dome (Lumisphere) provides full measuring in the standard position or when retracted, provides cosine-corrected light readings for individual light source measurements or flat artwork
    Analyzing Function
    Simultaneous reading of flash and ambient light is analyzed and displayed
  • Combined readings of flash and ambient
  • Percentage of flash in the total exposure
  • Simultaneous display of flash, ambient and combined readings on the analog display
  • Exposure, Calibration and Filter Compensation
    Independent incident and reflected exposure compensation of up to +/-9.9 EV can be easily set for custom film exposure corrections or for bellows extension factors; With the calibration, compensation setting of +/-1.0 EV, matching built-in camera meters or other handheld meters is a snap; There is even a filter compensation setting of +/-5.0 EV for filter factor compensation
    Data Transfer Software
    Compatible with both Windows and Macintosh computers, the Sekonic Data Transfer Software automatically calculates the entered test data from a digital camera and creates an exposure profile; These profiles contain exposure characteristics for Flash, Ambient, Incident and Reflected exposure modes from ISO 3 to ISO 8000; In addition, the dynamic range at all ISOs are calculated and stored; Exposure profiles are transferred via a USB cable (included) from the Data Transfer Software (included) directly into the L-758C. Once the data is completely transferred to the meter, it is automatically calibrated and programmed for the specific digital camera sensor or film loaded in its memory
    Dual ISO Settings
    The L-758C offers the flexibility of taking a single measurement and displaying the f-stop and shutter speed for two different ISO film speeds, such as negative film and Polaroid proofing film; The second ISO setting is also ideal for calculating exposure compensation such as filter factors or bellows factors, without having to change the original film speed settings
    All Weather Design
    All buttons, switches and compartments are sealed and the meter housing has been constructed with durable, rugged conditions in mind; Ideal for shooting in sandy, rainy or humid conditions
    14 Custom Settings
    The custom settings mode provides a quick and easy setup of individual meter preferences. The L-758C features and modes can be turned on or off, as well as modified to fit the needs of the individual using the meter
    Memory All Clear
    Memorized values can be all cleared or the last memorized value can be deleted (backspace clear), in addition, individually selected values can be selected and cleared

      I use this for both photography and video, and it is a very useful meter. I am disappointed that it does not come with the exposure target II which is needed for optimal use, or the pocket wizard transmitter. The features are seemingly endless, so it is a very good investment.

          Comments about Sekonic L-758Cine DigitalMaster Light Meter:

          This light meter is great. Easy to use (especially following Sekonic's youtube video for easy set up, and then reading the manual to find specific functions).

          The bigger brother of the 758 DR. It DOES work with flash photography which is a plus if you do both still and motion capture. You can also purchase a SEPARATE Pocket Wizard trigger so you don't have to connect a dumb trigger to it.

          If you're shooting a lot of slow motion and need to overcrank (Think PHANTOM), this will give you the option to do that. If you have a big need for that, this is the main reason in my opinion to get this light meter. Otherwise, for motion, you can get away with using pretty much anything else on the market if you're just looking to get readings to set your light ratios correctly.

          But take my advice on this - if you're in the market for a light meter - just get one, any one. Don't let the higher price of this one stop you from taking a step up in your cinematography game.

            Comments about Sekonic L-758Cine DigitalMaster Light Meter:

            I've been dying to own this meter for years and have rented or borrowed it (and it's precursor---I think there was a previous version that, like the L-758, has both a full sized incident meter as well as spot)... With motion picture cameras having histograms now, I hear certain people saying they don't meter anymore... I've worked on several professional shoots where the DP and gaffers don't even bring them anymore. They light by the monitor and through the camera and checking the histogram. True...but when I'm on steadicam, there is nothing more annoying than having to go through every room and pointing the camera at the windows and shadows and whatnot just b/c the someone didn't bring a meter. A camera on steadicam is a 60 lb lightmeter, which is ridiculous. It's just impractical, and with my own cinematography, I've found I work with much more nuance having a meter and having to use 2 meters is what I was doing before buying this and I too would often leave the meter at home b/c it's just more awkward having to carry around both an incident and a reflected meter.

            There are 2 littles disappointment though, that kind of annoys me a lot (but I won't be returning b/c there is no other meter that does what this one does) and that's that the cap does not always stay securely on it and when it's off, it's dangle-y, but removing that string holding it on would lead to it inevitably getting lost. Also, case is kind of floppy (not really sturdy) for something in this price range. I'll probably be spending an extra $50 or whatever for the Arri pouch for it soon. This pouch is really big, b/c of the shape of the meter---it would be nice for a form fitting shape, not a big rectangle to hold something roughly cross shaped (the protruding parts of the spot meter)... Also, it would be nice if the pouch stored it vertical, not horizontal...as big as it is, it would rest a little less awkwardly upright.

            I've found it to be a slightly awkward shaped meter, but it's so much less awkward than having two, and this meter will work for several years into the future.

            Comments about Sekonic L-758Cine DigitalMaster Light Meter:

            The line between the L-758Cine and a Spektra lies in your desire to calculate.

            I have used both for exposing film and digital and found them both to be accurate. What I like(and have paid much extra for) about the L-758 is that it removes the mental calculations that I constantly did when thinking in foot candles.

            If you don't know the calculations I am referring to, you maybe should start off with a cheaper meter to get the basics down.

                It would be nice if it came with the radio flash function as well. I presume it is a simple upgrade.

                          Great build quality and simple to operate. This meter can do just about everything you ask of it. Variable frame rates is very handy, but for most 1000fps may seem outrageous. If you have the money buy this hands down, otherwise the 558c and 608c are just fine.

                          I haven't been able to use it on many projects yet. I'm just now learning how to use light meters in general. The interface is really easy to use. The functions are plentiful. I DO wish it had color metering built in.

                            Im a film student, im not professional filmmaker.
                            Before i decided to buy this lightmeter my eyes were focused on the dr model.
                            I was having second thoughts on spending this amount of money on the cine model, but after a few chats with actual dop and gaffer from the industry i realized that this was an investment, and that it would be something i wouldnt regret.
                            After using it a few times in personal projects and film school exercises i realized i made a good choice, since im going to be able to use it in this cases but alzo in the future in more professional projects. The extra features that this model offers compares to the dr are very useful if you are in the filmmaking business.
                            To sum it up, i think its worth the money if you are or hope to be a professional photographer or cinematographer...

                                The L-758 cine meter is the best around for Cine use. It's easy to use and change functions although this meter has way more options then I will probably ever really use.
                                One of the best things about this meter is the variable fps and having 2 iso modes to easily switch between two different stocks.
                                One of the things that I have not found on this meter is a locking function. I find that it turns in occasional when in it's case and runs the battery down.
