Hitachi High Speed Camera Exposure Meter (02)
Ever have heard of a Hitachi Light meter ?
Well I didn't until I found and bought one today.
Always thought that Hitachi only makes stuff like Power tools and TV-sets.
And what a meter it is. Big and heavy. The sensor is fixed to the base by a long flexible tube.
The meter has 3 scales, 3x , 30x and 300x 10.000 Lux
Guess that's were those 2 loose lying neutral density filters kick in as they each have a factor x10.
So top reading would be 3.000.000 Lux.
Well that's about 25 times that what the sun produces on noon at a clear day !
Film sensitivity can be set from 1 ASA till 5000 ASA
But what does P.P.S. mean ?
Particles Per Set ?? Nooo....
Pictures Per Second ?? Yes, why not, very probable
So max setting is 200 x 100 = 20.000 pictures per second.
My vidcam only perform 25 frames per second at best !
