Gossen Color-Pro 3F Light Meter Key Features
Adjustable Film Color Temperatures, Three of the most used film color temperatures are programmed into the meter (5500 K 3400 K and 3200 K) but these can be freely overridden with color temperatures between 2000 and 9900 K.
And still another useful capability: the Color-Pro 3F measures the intensity of the ambient light in Lux and of Flash light in Luxseconds.
The button for measuring the light is conveniently placed on the right side of the meter, as are the buttons for changing the values up or down. Buttons for changing the functions left or right are on the front of the meter.
After comparing the color temperature measured with the
pre-selected color temperature of the film, in degrees
Kelvin, the Color-Pro 3F calculates out the filter values
required to achieve photographs without color casts. The
resulting filter values can be expressed as light balancing
values in Mired or Kodak WrattenTM values. In
addition to the above the Color-Pro 3F will also indicate in
CC filter values the correction required, for example when
working with fluorescent lighting.
