Get your light off-camera and embrace the advantages of wireless metering with this Sekonic LiteMaster Pro L-478DR-U-PX Light Meter Bundle which pairs the meter with a Phottix Ares II Wireless Flash Trigger and Receiver Kit. The system is equipped with Phottix's tried-and-true Strato II protocol, which uses a 2.4 GHz frequency with a 492' range. Additionally, with both the meter and transmitter, you can quickly go from metering your flash to capturing the image with your camera without needing to change any settings or equipment. Another benefit of this setup is that the Ares II offers a standard 3.5mm port, allowing shooters to easily add different types of lights into their kit without needing to upgrade the triggering system.

  • LiteMaster Pro L-478DR-U-PX Series Light Meter for Phottix Strato II System

    Equipped with a large and intuitive 2.7" color touchscreen LCD and now featuring built-in radio triggering for the 2.4 GHz Phottix Strato II wireless system, the LiteMaster Pro L-478DR-U-PX Series Light Meter from Sekonic will make incident metering for ambient and flash light super simple. The 4-channel system also has separate selection between 4 groups with measured values maintained for ratio determination.

    Notable for the L-478 light meter series is the large color touchscreen, which allows for fast control over settings for both ambient and flash metering. The meter is quite capable as well, able to function within a range of -2 to 22.9 EV at ISO 100. And, for the current crop of hybrid shooters this model expands on its standard stills functions with two distinct video modes: Cine and HD Cine. These settings give access to frame rate selection from 1-1,000 fps as well as shutter angle settings from 1-358° as well as ISO 850 for Canon cinema cameras.

    Guaranteeing the best possible performance is a suite of functions and features that will ensure users have the best tools available to them. Among these is a flash analyzing function that uses ambient and flash simultaneously to allow for shooters to dial in their preferred mix. Also, using the included Data Transfer Software users will be able to do Exposure Profiling for their camera by using the optional 5° viewfinder, showing dynamic range limits and knowing that you will have an accurate exposure. Alongside this is a Filtration Compensation Mode that allows for the meter to account for filter factor, which can now be done at up to 12 EV for landscape shooters using high-density ND filters. Other features include a contrast function for comparing brightness, a memory mode for 9 readings, and illuminance or luminance measurement.

    Lumisphere receptor head rotates 90° right and 180° left and retracts for conversion to a flat diffuser
    Optional 5° viewfinder for spot metering
    Ambient light measuring modes include aperture priority, shutter speed priority, TF priority, CINE, HD Cine, illuminance, and luminance
    Flash can be measured with PC sync terminal connection, cordless, or radio triggering
    Measuring range at ISO 100 of -2 to 22.9 EV with incident light or 3 to 22.9 EV with reflected light
    ISO range of 3 to 409,600 in 1/3 steps, including 850 for Canon cinema cameras
    Other functions: exposure profile, mid tone function, exposure compensation, filter compensation, multiple cumulative function, memory/clear/recall function, average function, contrast function, auto power off, touch panel lock
    Runs on 2 AAA batteries
    Firmware upgradeable via mini-USB port
