With inaccessible subjects, take the incident light measurement at a substitute spot which receives the same illumination as the subject. Pointer needle with mechanical computer Sensor: Deviations from correct exposure will produce trans parencies that are either too light or too dark; you may also get distortion of colours. Make complete notes of the readings and of any special conditions. You will need steady hands, a few small tools, and another accurate meter as a reference.

The resultant reading, therefore, depends not only on the intensity of the illumination, but also on the colour and brightness of the objects themselves.


Increasing or decreasing the EV number by 1 is equivalent to one stop. It is advisable to check the condition of the batteries from time to time, as follows: It’ll make you feel better, won’t it? It is advisable to write to the film manufacturer for information concerning the necessary exposure correction and filtering for colour correction of the specific film which you are using with extended exposure times.

Is it because the batteries or the needle not properly set to zero position? Micro attachment The Lunasix meter can be used for photo-microscopy, by using the accessory Micro Attachment to fit the meter to a microscope.

Move the converter slide 10 so that the spherical diffuser is centered over the round window. The brightest portions of a colour transparency, the darkest portions of a black-and-white print, should still show some detail!

But you want to see the very light, or very dark area in the finished picture again as “very light” or “very dark” – not as “grey”! It enables you, by means of instant-lock-on attachments, to refine your measuring tech niques not only in your camera work on location and in the studio, but in enlarging or in photomicrography and photography through terrestrial telescopes.

About “exposure steps” see page If the scene includes a large very bright area – far from the “average” that the LUNASIX 3 would normally calculate with – it will indicate lnuasix shorter exposure time than it would for a large very dark area.

Profisix, Lunasix F, Lunalite Type: You can read the pages one by one from the links below, or get the whole manual gosxen pdf format you will need Acrobat Reader. It permits you to measure very small areas of the projected image for maximum utilization of paper contrast and colour range.

The measured values for reflected light measurement expressed in footlamberts are approx. If the previous impression was “dark”, you can be sure of utmost measuring accuracy. For reflected light measurement, footcandle values cannot be given at all, since this method measures not the illumination but the brightness of the surface field luminance which can be expressed in footlamberts. Hi, Pete Many thanks for your advice and help.

If the indicator needle is deflected only slightly below 12 on the scaletake a new reading by pressing the range selector forward. With variations in illumination and exposure time, the effective sensitivity also varies, a phenomenon which is called the “reciprocity effect”.

However, the footcandle table can be of practical value for measuring direct light beams arc light, spots. Thus, incident light measurement is ideal for the previous example with extensive very bright or very dark areas – it will give you perfect results.


Therefore, keep an eye on such lighter areas and preferably expose a little shorter rather than longer, to get more brilliant colours. Remember, that, when there are extreme contrasts in a scene, the film may not be able to cope with them! After taking the measurement, turn the computer ring 5 until the obtained reading is set at the triangular yellow index 9 of the transfer scale 6. Exposure settings are then read from the computer dial, the lower window of which displays the measured EV “Exposure Value”.

The Gossen website explains that janual adapter is expensive, because it is hand-made in small numbers. Frequently, the spot where you stand with the camera receives the same illumination as the scene which you intend to photograph, in which case you merely do “about face” with your LUNASIX 3 and measure the light exactly opposite to the direction of the camera.

Wait again until the needle stops, and lock the reading in gosssen releasing the selector. When you release the selector, only the scale values applicable to the measuring range which you just selected, remain visible.

If the scene contains strong contrasts in brightness or colour, it is preferable to measure that part of the scene which requires the most accurate exposure. The LUNASIX 3 should not be considered a full-fledged footcandle meter because, strictly speaking, footcandles of manyal can be measured only be means of a flat lunxsix screen. The Gossen company has produced an adapter to allow the use of a pair of easily-obtained silver-oxide cells in these meters.

On the other hand, reversal colour films – because of their limited latitude – not only lose “speed” but their colour balance is also affected.
