Sekonic C-500R ProDigi Color Meter

Serious photographers and cinematographers know that good lighting and proper exposure are more important now than ever.

With the new ProDigi Color C-500R, Sekonic gives photographers the world's only photographic color meter designed to read spectral sensitivity of both color film and CCD and CMOS sensors used in today's digital still and DV cine cameras. Identical to the C-500, the "R" model adds wireless triggering for your flash and camera.

With the higher demands of today's digital medium, "garbage in" can mean hours of postproduction. They know that color is a critical factor when multiple light sources are involved. Changing reflectors, adding diffusion or adjusting power levels will result in a color temperature change that needs to be corrected. They know that taking the time to do it right is always a good investment because "perfect in" always looks better than an image that has been adjusted.

Controlling the light in front of your camera is the first step in your color workflow. As long as you are working with a single light source, you can count on the white balance function of your camera or computer to get the color you want. However, add a second light, a light modifier, or work on location with today’s mix of tungsten, halide, vapor and fluorescent lights, and you will either have to fix it up front or fix it later, if you can.

How do you arrive at a common, single color tone that is easy for your camera or software to correct? How do you introduce additional flash illumination in the foreground without making it look like, well, additional flash illumination? And knowing that the color accommodation of your eyes and brain make unaided color adjustment nearly impossible to judge by yourself, how do you know how much color filtration is enough and when you’ve over corrected? If color is important, a Sekonic C-500 Series color meter should be in your arsenal of photographic tools.

The PRODIGI COLOR C-500 and C-500R measure and display color temperature and compensation values in LB/CC index or filter numbers for both digital and film cameras. In Digital mode, the color temperature and compensation readings are based on human visual response. In Film mode, readings are based on the color characteristics of traditional photographic film. By engineering the spectral characteristics of both systems into a single meter, Sekonic designers have given you greater control over lighting and color reproduction than ever before, regardless of your medium.

The Sekonic C-500R ProDigi Color Meter comes with a full Australian warranty
