NEW SEKONIC C-800

 
rev3.jpg

The ultimate color meter. Ultra-precise color measuring.
Designed to be used on set. 

Developed with the input from leading lighting manufacturers, filmmakers, photographers, and The Academy of Motion Picture Arts and Sciences, Science and Technology Council, the C-800 solves the problems image makers have when understanding color properties of light, and how lights will reproduce colors on camera.

More color rendering modes than any other meter in the industry.

CRI | TLCI | TLMF | TM-30-15 | (NEW) SSI

It is the first and only meter to include SSI (Spectral Similarity Index) developed by the Sci-Tech Council of the Academy. SSI gives the user the ability to set any light as a standard, or use predefined standards (such as CIE D55), and then gives other lights an SSI score based upon how well they will match. The C-800 also includes TLCI (Television Lighting Consistency Index), TLMF (Television Lighting Matching Factor), TM-30-15 (Technical Memorandum) in addition to CRI (Color Rendering Index), which can be measured singularly or in two light comparison mode.

Matching light sources just got easier!
Now measure x,y & hue saturation.

The C-800 now has more color control parameters specifically designed to help match lights to one another. CIE1931 (x, y) has been added, giving users the ability to measure and dial-in specific chromaticity coordinates into lights of some major brands. Hue and Saturation units of measure have also been added to better match RGB LEDs to any light source. In addition, new display screens provide easy interpretation and understanding of the new data fields, making this the best meter for all applications.

 
 

Measure any light source.

Read LED, HMI, Fluorescent, Tungsten, Natural Light and Flash from 1,600 to 40,000 Kelvin.
