Really Seeing the Light!

  • Excerpt: With ability to dial in the Kelvin temp on the Nikon D800 and other cameras having the tool to read the actual colour temp is a BONUS! With very little effort the excat colour temp of the lighy is read and it also accounts for casting created by refection off surrounding surfaces.
  • Pros: Accurate, Consistent

A good enough job to be essential

  • Excerpt: I am a lighting director and gaffer and use this meter daily. It had no hiccups with HMI LED tungsten kino Street lights or Stadium lights. My Minolta color meters often had issues with Stadium lights as they can be a very narrow spectrum. It is an ideal tool for matching follow spots as it combined fc and color temp.
  • Pros: Accurate, Combined Color And Fc, Compact

Love this Meter

  • Excerpt: I've used this meter for a couple of weeks and love it. It's good work for my Canon 5D Markii. If it's more compact, it will become a good tool for the camera man that you can put it into your pocket for every scene.
  • Pros: Accurate, Consistent, Strong Construction

Wish I bought this years ago.

  • Excerpt: We use this for matching color temps on location. Works great and is much more accurate than the in camera meter. Checked the actual color temp of many of our location lights and was shocked on how far off they were from the marked lamp temp. Color balance is now perfect. Wish we would have bought this unit years ago. Skin tones are now perfect!
  • Pros: Accurate, Compact, Consistent, Lightweight, Strong Construction
  • Cons: none

Sekonic Color Temperature meter

Litesauce, B&H Photo
3 January 2013
  • Excerpt: I have been dreaming of a color temperature meter for years and now I have the Sekonic C-500 I don't know how I got by without it. This product is very easy and quick to use. The moment it was out of the box I had it testing the huge range of moving lights and followspots in our studio. Now there will be no more arguments over lamp consistency.
  • Pros: Accurate, Consistent, Lightweight, Versatile

the best and only one available

  • Excerpt: This color meter can do so much that I recommend to keep the manual at reach. This is a compliment that carries his own criticism. Shooting in 35mm as well as HD, I value that the meter can be set for each of these medias. The only down side to it, at this stage is how fearful I am to drop this amazing instrument. It is a lot of money if I ever have to replace it....
