Gossen Digisix 2 Compact Ambient and Reflective Light Meter

Model: 40062
Manufacturer: Gossen

This item is no longer manufactured.

With its compact, handy and lightweight design, coming in at just 40 grams, the Gossen Digisix 2 is an ideal enhancement for minimalistic, but nevertheless demanding, photographic equipment. The meter expanded measuring functions of manually adjustable cameras to include incident light measurement, of which better exposure can be achieved for usual subject contrast.

Integrated contrast measurement also indicates whether or not subject contrast, i.e. the difference between the brightest and darkest part of the subject, can be managed by the sensor or the film. The timer for time exposures, temperature monitoring for the camera bag and the clock with alarm round out the functions of the Gossen Digisix 2 and transform them into indispensable tools for the dedicated photographer.

The combination of precision digital measuring technology and a clear-cut analog display is entirely unique. The measured exposure value is transferred to the settings window, after which all usable f-stop/shutter speed combinations can be viewed at a glance – thus paying homage to traditional analog exposure meter.
