This compact and user-friendly light meter provides an easy, economical means of making highly accurate measurement of indoor and outdoor light levels. It measures footcandles, lux and instantly calculates Contrast Ratio, Averaging and can store up to 2 readings. Measurement results are displayed on an Electroluminescent backlit Custom LCD. It has a digital f/stop range from f/0.35 to f/128 in 1/10th stop increments and an Analog Bargraph range from f/0.7 to f/45 in 1/3rd stop increments.

The optional Spectra One Degree Photospot is a unique accessory that converts your Spectra Professional meter into a high-sensitivity one degree Spotmeter for narrow-angle reflected-light measurements. Readings are displayed in reflected f/stop or in footlamberts in luminance mode.

Exposure Calibration IMPORTANT!: You should not attempt to recalibrate the meter yourself. Recalibration of the meter requires both an equipped calibration laboratory and an intimate knowledge of the internal workings of the instrument. A recalibration and maintenance service is available from Spectra Cine, Inc. or an authorized service center for a nominal charge. There are no user-serviceable components inside the meter. Opening the meter will void your warranty. The meter is equipped with an indicator which will signal if the cover has been removed by other than factory authorized personnel.
