For anyone in the cinema business, the meter will be equal value. The easy-to-read meter requires no formula conversations making it a cinch to use.

For general photographic use, this meter meets all pro demands. For portrait, object and fashion photography, it measures and analyzes light which strikes the motif - regardless of the object's reflectivity. And, the meter only takes illuminance into consideration, not object brightness. For the real purist, the Starlite 2 is geared to the Zone System and can give brightness values for all gray tones within a scene. 

In flash mode, it calculates the number of flashes required for a given resolution - and it will analyze the light and figure the brightness ratio of the scene. It takes contrast into consideration and rads from the brightest to darkest areas and produces the correct exposure solution.

Exposure Measurement

Ambient, flash and spot - measures in 1-5° angle using the viewfinder. Incident light is determined using the diffuser which can be raised or lowered depending on shooting plane

Cine Readings

Total cine meter - 180° rotary disc. There are extra sector sizes in 5° steps - no conversion with formulas are required

Illumination/Photometry

Footcandles, lux and other precise readings can easily be obtained

Zone System

Using the 11-step gray scale, precise black and white values can be obtained

DIP Switches

Exposure times for the standard series - full steps can be changed to 1/2 stops; additional readings can be tweaked as well such as cine readings
