Kenko KCM-3100 Professional Color Temperature Meter

The KENKO KCM-3100 color meter reads the temperature of either ambient or flash light. Its uncluttered control button layout and large easy-to-read LCD make using the meter a breeze. The meter has 3 display modes for displaying color temperature. Each mode is designed for a certain type of photography or filtering system.The LB (Light Balancing) mode is used to select the necessary amber or blue Light Balancing filter. With the CC (Color-Correction) mode it displays the Kodak filter number(s) of the necessary light-balancing filter(s) to make for easy selection of the required light balancing filter. Where as the LB system uses Amber or blue filters, the CC system uses Magenta or Green color compensating filters. Finally the photographic color temperature can be shown in degrees Kelvin. This is a useful setting to determine filtration based on the light source and the spectral sensitivity of the film used.The KCM-3100 has the ability to take ambient and flash light readings using either a sync cord or non-cord. Using a sync cord, the flash is fired when the reading button is pushed. In the non sync cord mode, pushing the reading button puts the meter in a stand-by mode and when the flash is fired the meter displays those readings. Also the meter has an “Analyzer Mode” for measurement of Flash lighting only. Setting the shutter speed to “F”, the meter will only read light from flash. With the 9 memory channels you can customize the meter to your equipment and materials. The KCM-3100’s 9 memory channels allow the photographer to enter custom setting based on the situations or individual film characteristics they are working with. Once the data is entered and stored, the meter will adjust future readings accordingly.
