The green and red ring indexes apply only for measurements with the Variable Angle “spot meter” attachment. That is the maximum the needle can reach to the left. SBC silicon blue diode Measurement angle: Of course, you’ll want to know what parts of a scene are included in a reflected light measurement.
The Personal Touch Do you really have to expose very critically every time? It has further reduced sensitivity and manuql not provide flash metering.
Where to get the users instruction manual for Gossen Lunasix?
Basic Operating Instructions Setting the film speed Look up the DIN or ASA Exposure Index of the film in use you will find it on the film box or film instruction sheet and turn the plexiglass film-speed setting disc 17 by the raised bars, until the DIN or ASA Index number is lined up against the triangular white marker in the respective window.
The indicator needle should now rest on the check line to the left of the scale divisions Black-and-white films, generally, tolerate moderate deviations from normal conditions. I follow the manual of Lunasix 3 to test zero position of the indicator needle.
Move the converter slide 10 all the way to the right; this uncovers the round window. This camera manual library is for reference and historical purposes, all rights reserved. Otherwise, fresh batteries maual be used. On the other nanual, reversal colour films – because of their limited latitude – not only lose “speed” but their colour balance is also affected.

The LUNASIX 3 should not be considered a full-fledged footcandle meter because, strictly speaking, footcandles of illumination can be measured only be means of a flat interception screen. Lunasx Lunasix F was positioned alongside the Lunasix and in turn was replaced by the Multisix. Therefore, keep an eye on such lighter areas and preferably expose a little shorter rather than longer, to get more brilliant colours.

Flickr image Meters Gossen. For colour slide or movie film – which as you know, requires more critical exposure – the lighter portions of a scene usually determine the exposure. I’m grateful to Rob Cole for sending me a pdf copy of the instruction leaflet for the attachment.
After inserting fresh batteries, immediately make the battery test described above. The electronics shut off after 30 seconds. But, when is a scene “perfectly” exposed? The needle did swing to manuao left of the scale, but it never can reach to the check line zero line – the very left end line on the scale. If the scene includes a large very bright area – far from the “average” that the LUNASIX 3 would normally calculate with – it will indicate a shorter exposure time than it would for a large very dark area.
If you use Pay Pal, use the link below. The Gossen Profisix in US Luna-Pro sbc is a professional “system” exposure meter that can be fitted with a range of electrically connected accessories offering additional measurement facilities, including flash, enlarger metering, and colour temperature.
Reciprocity Effect Film manufacturers base the “speed ratings” of photographic emulsions on average conditions of exposure times and illumination under which such emulsions are “normally” intended to be used.
Deviations from correct exposure will produce trans parencies that are either too light or too dark; you may also get distortion of colours. You can read the pages one by one from the links below, or get the whole manual in pdf format you will need Acrobat Reader. In the case of reflected light measurement, the LUNASIX 3 collects, within a certain angle, the light which is reflected from these many individual parts of the scene; it adds up all the light and strikes an average for which it indicates a suitable exposure time.
Could be the meter is simply broken. This involves opening the meter case and adjusting several variable resistors inside. There are several advantages:.

The Profisix is a zero or null pointer measurement meter. Its microammeter indicates readings in gozsen of, ft. Photographic subjects are usually three-dimensional and they are illuminated from many different directions sun, sky, reflections from buildings, trees, ground, etc.
But soon the demands become more stringent, especially when results are com pared.
