Thus, sufficient latitude exists in correct exposure for those parts of a scene which are lighter or darker than the “medium grey”. The needle did swing to the left of the scale, but it never can reach to the check line zero line – the very left end line on the scale.

Your name or email address: SBC silicon blue diode Measurement angle: Learn from your experience: The Gossen website explains that this adapter tossen expensive, because it is hand-made in small numbers. Thus, incident light measurement is ideal for the previous example with extensive very bright or very dark areas – it will give you perfect results.

I’m afraid it sounds like it to me. This method is called: The small measuring areas permit very accurate, carefully aimed measurements for exposures with longer lenses, and selective readings of various parts of a scene janual subject when normal lenses are used. It has further reduced sensitivity and does not provide flash metering.

Lunasix 3 manual

The Lunasix F was positioned alongside the Lunasix and in turn was replaced by the Multisix. Its microammeter indicates readings in ranges of, ft. Therefore, watch the darker areas and expose a little longer mannual than too little. If the scene includes a large very bright area – far from the “average” that the LUNASIX 3 would normally calculate with – it will indicate a shorter exposure time than it would for a large very dark area.


I’m grateful to Rob Cole for sending me a pdf copy of the instruction leaflet for the attachment. The Lunasix F was Gossen’s last professional meter with a mechanical moving needle display and the last without a microprocessor.

I recently download a instruction manual for Lunasix 3 from http: After taking the measurement, turn the computer ring 5 until the obtained reading is set at the triangular yellow index 9 of the transfer scale 6. While a selenium element converts light into electric energy, the photo-conductive cell merely changes its conductivity in the presence of light.

This page was last modified on 26 Novemberat Measuring comparisions of your LUNASIX 3 with similar or other types of exposure meters cannot be made properly without special laboratory equipment optical bench. Incident light measurement at a substitute spot of equal illumination is also convenient for many regular outdoor scenes.

Un-marked numerals 1, 2, 4 etc. Move the converter slide 10 so that the spherical diffuser is centered over the round window. Otherwise, determine by how much lnuasix need to increase or decrease future exposure readings to get the best results.

The main meter scale is also marked for over or under exposure. You can read the pages one by one from the links below, or get the whole manual in pdf format you will need Acrobat Reader.

Failures properly analyzed will soon lead to consistent successes! However, instead of pointing the LUNASIX 3 towards the camera, you point it parallel to an imaginary line from the object to the camera.

Of course, you’ll want to lunasux what parts of a scene are included in a reflected light measurement. It enables you, by means of instant-lock-on attachments, to refine your measuring tech niques not only in your camera work on location and in the studio, but in enlarging or in photomicrography and photography through terrestrial telescopes.

I get this web site to download the manual for Lunasix. Fits the ocular tube of all microscopes for lunnasix exposure determination. After inserting fresh batteries, immediately make the battery test described above.

Mallory PX 13 mercury batteries are available at most camera shops.

Batteries for the Lunasix The Lunasix and Luna-pro meters are designed to use a pair of mercury cells. Move the converter slide 10 all the way to the right; this uncovers the round window. Keep this site quiet, please folks, because many of these useful web lunaskx get taken down by spiteful companies that can’t be bothered to put their old manuals online themselves, but will move heaven and earth to stop other people providing that service for free.
