The Sekonic SPEEDMASTER L-858D is a perfect example of a great brand being responsive to its fans and responding to how popular high speed sync is.

Sekonic Corporation, the leader in design and engineering of Professional Photographic and Filmmaking Light Meters, announced their latest advancement in metering, the NEW Sekonic SPEEDMASTER L-858D. With it’s 2.7” color touch screen and truly innovative and sophisticated features, the L-858D leads the way to the next generation of light measurement control.

Sekonic has combined over 60 years of experience in the image-making world with cutting edge technology to create the SPEEDMASTER L-858D. The meter has undergone a significant design change and was built with a comprehensive feature set sure to meet and exceed the demands of today’s image-makers.

A pioneer in the space, the L-858D now offers flash duration measurement, providing critical flash data needed to calculate proper ambient-flash exposure. Also, as it’s name implies, the SPEEDMASTER L-858D has the capability to measure the brief flash bursts of High Speed Sync (HSS) for precision flash exposure control, making it an essential tool for photographers utilizing this game changing technology.

Break Through Boundaries
The L-858D builds off the popular L-478D series features and function sets that enable photographers to break through the boundaries of ISO sensitivity, flash and ambient shutter speeds, as well as frame rates (f/s) and shutter angles for cinematographers.

Filmmakers and landscape photographers will appreciate the L-858D’s increased sensitivity for both incident and reflected-spot measurements giving them the ability to obtain extreme low light level readings. The L-858D also offers optional wireless triggering modules for Elinchrom® and Phottix® in addition to PocketWizard® brand radio triggering devices, giving photographers utilizing strobes ultimate control over their lighting workflow.

“The Sekonic SPEEDMASTER L-858D is a perfect example of a great brand being responsive to its fans and responding to how popular high speed sync is. The Sekonic engineers have developed an incredible tool that combines flash duration measurement, an intuitive touchscreen interface and many other advances to address the needs of the most demanding photographers and filmmakers.”  — Jan Lederman, MAC Group President.
