Knowing the colour temperature of a light source is extremely important for consistently accurate colour reproduction in photography. Reproducing accurate colour is critical in many areas of photography such as fashion and commercial photography. Useful for both still and cine photography, the KCM-3100‘s uncluttered control button layout and large easy-to-read LCD makes it very user friendly. Three display modes display colour temperatures, designed for different types of photography and filtering systems. LB (Light Balancing) LB index is used to select the necessary amber or blue LB filter. The Mired difference between the specific photographic colour temperature for the selected film type and the light source. CC (Colour-Correction) 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 colour compensating filters. Photographic colour temperature 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 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. “Analyser Mode” for measurement of flash lighting only. Setting the shutter speed to “F”, the meter will only read light from flash. 9 memory channels for customizing the meter to your equipment and materials- All film and equipment manufacturers claim that their products are calibrated or balanced to “daylight” (5500K) or tungsten (3400K or 3200K), but in the real world these number are often not 100% accurate. Film can vary from batch to batch and light bulbs and flash tubes can have slight shifts in colour over time. Once these differences are determined, 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.
