Backlight LCD display is a really big advantage of this device, but what next? For example
user friendly cross control buttons for easy adjustment and advanced ergonomy thanks to flashmeter fits
right into your hand.
White light measuring sensor is adjustable. You can measure more directional light with
retracted sensor. You can also measure ambient light when you pull the sensor out.
Analog camera owner will be pleased with ISO measuring from value 50.
Polaris Karat offers new functions for studio flasheads users:
FD - Flash duration
Measuring the duration time of the strobe flash.（T0.5: 1/100～1/9000).
FR - Flash ratio
On Flash measuring, ratio of strobe light of overall light quantity is displayed. (in 1% increment).
Fire flash once and shows multiple Aperture (F) from 2 to 9 flashes.
Auto ISO Mode:
Setting desired Aperture（F）and Shutter Speed（T）find appropriate ISO number.
It shows the difference between average value and newly measured value by ΔEV. Useful for checking lighting
evenness of backgrounds, and lighting ratio.
Type： Hand-held meter for measuring ambient and flash light exposure Light Receiving Method： Incident light and Reflected light Sensor： Silicon Photodiode Light Receptor：
Ambient light: Shutter Speed (T) Priority, Aperture (F) Priority, EV, Auto ISO Flash light: Shutter Speed (T), Flash Duration (FD)
Incident light: C=340 Reflected light: K=14
Display Range： ISO Sensitivity Value: ISO 50 to 32000 in 1/3 stop increments Shutter Speed (T):
Ambient light: 60 sec to 1/8000 sec (plus 5 most useful speeds) Flash light: 60 sec to 1/1000 sec
Aperture (F): F0.5 to F90+0.9 (in 0.1 step) EV Value: -0.9 to 29.2 (in 0.1 step) Multi Flash: Fire flash once and shows multiple Aperture (F) from 2 to 9 flashes Flash Ratio: 1 to 100% (in 1% increment) Range limit: “Eu” for under range, “Eo” for over range Error: Err: Flash Waiting Time Over, 1/100 (in red): Flash Amount Under, 1/9000 (in red):
Flash Amount Over Program Level (PL): -0.9 to +0.9 (in 0.1 step)
