Metering a Strobe Light?

Recommended Posts

Will a Sekonic 608 Combo Meter measure a flash?



I couldn't find this meter in the sekonic's site, is it an old one?

If it does flash readings, then u can measure a strobe light when u have it flash in big intervals, or you can use a simple photometer (not a flash meter) if you have your strobe running at 50 or 60 flashes per second.


Is it going to be your main light source or a secondary somewhere in the background?

If you just need the effect somewhere away of your subject, there is no problem beeing so accurate,

u can go ''by eye''.

I hope this will help you,
