Sekonic PRODIGI Color C-500R Meter with PocketWizard Transmitter

Identical to the C-500, the "R" model adds wireless triggering for your flash and camera. Sekonic provided the answer to exposure control with the L-758DR, the worlds first meter that can be tuned to a film or digital camera. With the PRODIGI COLOR C-500 and C-500R, Sekonic gives photographers the worlds only photographic color meter designed to read spectral sensitivity of both color film and CCD and CMOS sensors used in todays digital still and DV cine cameras.Serious photographers and cinematographers know that good lighting and proper exposure are more important now than ever. With the higher demands of todays digital medium, "garbage in" can mean hours of postproduction. They know that color is a critical factor when multiple light sources are involved. Changing reflectors, adding diffusion or adjusting power levels will result in a color temperature change that needs to be corrected. They know that taking the time to do it right is always a good investment because "perfect in" always looks better than an image that has been adjusted.The PRODIGI COLOR C-500R is the first color meter to incorporate a flash triggering radio transmitter module. Simply press the measuring button to wirelessly trigger flash units up to 100 feet away. The built-in transmitter is compatible with PocketWizard's radio triggering systems, as well as the PocketWizard Wireless Freedom partners (Profoto, Dyna-lite, Photogenic, Norman and Lumedyne with built-in PocketWizard radio technology).
