Hitachi High Speed Camera Exposure Meter (01)

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 !
