Next generation flashmeter. Polaris Karat suprises not only for his features, but also for high visibility LCD display. Innovation is for example flash duration and flash ratio measuring.
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 fit
right into your hand.
White light measuring sensor is adjustable. You can measure more reflected light with retracted sensor. You can also measure incident light when you pull the sensor out.
Analogue camera owner will be pleased with ISO measuring from value 50.
Polaris Karat offers new functions for studio flasheads users:
Measuring the duration time of the strobe flash.（T0.5: 1/100～1/9000).
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.
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.
