PHOTOMETER 2 Large format focal plane meter
The Photometer 2 was developed in consultation with a group of large format photographers who wanted an affordable solution to image-plane point metering.
Although image plane metering systems of this type have long been available, the hefty price tag (admittedly providing extensive and sophisticated features) has made the cost prohibitive for amateur and cost-conscious professionals. The solution was to develop a less sophisticated and less feature-heavy metering system. One that provided the essential basic functions in an affordable, yet accurate and reliable unit.
The result is a convenient, hand-held metering unit with a metering probe in a frame, that inserts in the camera in place of the usual film holder.
Meter light level at any point in the image plane.
Optimize exposure settings for highlight, shadow areas and mid-tones.
Wide sensitivity range - exposures from 1/2000s to > 1 hour.
Adjustable film speed.
Two memories - store shadow or highlight tones while metering another to optimize exposure across the image.
Convenient, hand-held battery-operated meter unit. Intuitive and easy to use.
Metering probe and frame inserts in camera in place of standard film holder.
Ideal when using the Zone system.
