The Sekonic L-208 TwinMate is a palm-sized analog light meter for hand-held incident and reflected ambient light readings. It can also be mounted onto a camera or bracket using the included hot-shoe adapter for quick, camera-positioned reference readings. Though designed primarily for entry-level users, long-time shooters look to the Sekonic L-208 TwinMate as an accurate, easy-to-stow, back-up meter. Owners of rangefinder cameras who desire an incident and reflected meter also appreciate the included shoe mount.

The lumisphere enables accurate incident readings. Retract the lumisphere to take reflective readings. A hold-and-read function maintains readings for 15 seconds after releasing the measurement button to allow time to evaluate settings. The L-208 is powered by a single, long-lasting CR2032 lithium battery*.

NOTE: *Battery not included.

Sekonic L-208 Features:

  • The range on the deceptively small L-208 isastonishing for such a compact footprint. It can measure exposures from 30seconds to 1/8000th of a second. F-stops can be dialed in from f/1.4 to f/32in half-stop increments. ISOs from 12 to 12500 can be measured in half-stopincrements. EV3 to EV17 in both incident and reflected modes at ISO 100 can bemeasured.
  • After releasing the measurement button, the'Hold-and-Read' mode locks readings for 15 seconds, allowing for extendedexposure evaluation time. This gives assistants time to show photographerstheir readings
  • The L-208 has an impressive 33-degree acceptance anglein reflected mode, ensuring an accurate reading of light sources.
  • The incredible compact size enables the L-208 to slipin almost any shirt or pants pocket. It weighs in at only 1.5 ounces, or 40grams, without a battery.
  • The L-208 comes complete with a strap, carrying case, CR2032 lithiumbattery and accessory mounting shoe. It has a full, 1-year warranty,extendable at no charge to 3 years total (in the USA only) after registration,and is backed by our outstanding customer support team.
