Inspired by the popular legacy of the L-308 series, the new Sekonic L-308X Flashmate addresses significant features and functions that meet and exceed the needs of today’s Photo and Cine/Video shooters. The L-308X includes the familiar blend of compact, lightweight and intuitive design that made the L-308S so popular, and is a compact tool for metering both ambient and flash lighting as well as working in video with dedicated Cine and HD Cine modes. Three meters in one.

The versatility of the latest DSLR cameras has expanded the capabilities and creativity of today’s image makers. With just one camera, today’s shooters have become multi-media image makers, blending both still and moving images seamlessly, for the ultimate storytelling. Offering all the features expected from the latest generation L-308 series, the L-308X features an LCD backlight, Aperture priority (Photo Mode), and ISO 850 setting (for native ISO Cine Cameras).  The Flashmate L-308X is the perfect blend of Photo/Cine features all in one lightmeter.


Three Meters in One


Keeping pace with the demands of modern image creators that move from assignment to assignment, the L-308X-U features three metering modes:


Photo Mode

The L-308X-U offers full exposure control for photographers on-location or in the studio. Measurement data for flash and ambient light readings are clearly displayed on screen, as well as ambient EV measurement. In addition to Shutter Priority Mode, the new Aperture Priority Mode offers photographers care free measurements where depth-of-field is critical.


HD Cine Mode

Gives cinematographers a compact solution for scouting locations or as a quick go-to solution while they are on set. The 308X-U lets users select from a range of frame rates and shutter angles, while measuring accurately, to within one-tenth of a stop. Also, the addition of ISO 850 greatly assists cinematographers by giving them the option of taking measurements in the native ISOs of many of today's professional cinema cameras.


Cine Mode

Designed with the professional in mind, the FLASHMATE L-308X can take on the challenges of digital cinematography. Select from the right combination of frame rates and shutter angles to achieve the exposure control necessary with one-tenth stop accuracy. Truly universal, the FLASHMATE L-308X offers Lux (lx) and foot-candle (fc) readout enabling a quick set up of lighting in a compact, affordable and easy-to use design.
