Measure Continuous Lighting

  • Exposure: Shutter Speed, Aperture, ISO, plus Frame Rate & Shutter Angle for Video
  • Color Temperature: Kelvin
  • Measures all kinds of continuous light, including LED, HMI, tungsten, fluorescent and daylight
  • Measure Strobes

  • Combines both exposure and color temperature for strobe readings
  • Dedicated high-speed circuitry to filter out camera pre-flash and accurately measure strobe power and color
  • Measure strobe ratios (foreground/background or main/fill/hair, etc.)
  • Helps you detect and correct color differences under mixed lighting, or craft deliberate neutral + warm/cool lighting scenarios
  • Measures Color of Strobe and Ambient Light

  • Detect and correct color differences when shooting with mixed lighting
  • Select gels for correcting your strobe or LED lights
  • Libraries for Rosco and Lee filters
  • Connect Multiple Sensors to Your Phone

  • Simultaneously measure color of different light sources, e.g. daylight from windows and artificial lighting
  • Meter large areas to get uniform lighting - great for green screens
  • Measure the foreground and background simultaneously with multiple meters
  • Measure strobe ratios (foreground/background or main/fill/hair, etc.)
  • Measure Illuminance in Lux and Color in Chromaticity

  • Measure strobe ratios (foreground/background or main/fill/hair, etc.)
  • Simultaneously measure color of different light sources, e.g. daylight from windows and artificial lighting
  • Trigger a Meter Reading

  • From the app
  • From your watch
  • From button on the meter
  • Continuous ambient monitoring - no need to keep pressing buttons
  • Flash Triggering

  • Strobe photo trigger with automatic preflash rejection
  • Use a sync cable from Illuminati Meter sync port to remotely trigger strobes
  • Spring-Loaded Retractable Dome

  • Dome toggles up/down much like a ballpoint pen cap
  • Dome up for metering people or other 3D objects and multiple light sources at same time
  • Dome down for metering flat objects or single light sources
  • Safety feature: accidental pressure on the dome will push it into meter body instead of cracking
  • RGB Status Indicator LEDs on Meter Face

  • Used for displaying status information (battery warning, BLE connection status, etc.)
  • Primarily used to display user-programmable light and color level alarms. The LEDs are a great way to check lighting conditions with even looking at your phone
  • Powered by Two AAA Batteries

  • Battery life is approximately 40 hours of continuous use
  • AAA batteries are easy to find, easy to replace
  • No need to worry about charging an internal or proprietary battery

    question

    Can the meter be calibrated ?
    Asked by: Kevin C.
    The meter works well. It may seem confusing at first because it blinks different colors. The colors have meaning, read the manual about the colors before trying to use it. I have not run across a calibration function. I searched the manual and calibration is not mentioned.
