Increasing or decreasing the EV number by 1 is equivalent to one stop. Its microammeter indicates readings in ranges of, ft. Lunasix 3 manual Here are all the pages of the operating manual for the Gossen Lunasix 3 photographic light meter.

After inserting fresh batteries, mnaual make the battery test described above. Frequently, the spot where you stand with the camera receives the same illumination as the scene which you intend to photograph, in which case you merely do “about face” with your LUNASIX 3 and measure the light exactly opposite to the direction of the camera. Reflected light field luminance in footlamberts.

If there are extensive very bright or very dark areas in the scene, steer the LUNASIX 3 away from them and take the measurement from the “average” parts of the scene. The small measuring areas permit very accurate, carefully aimed measurements for exposures with longer lenses, and selective readings of various parts of manjal scene or subject when normal lenses are used.


With inaccessible subjects, take the incident light measurement at a substitute spot which receives the same illumination as the subject. Check the instructions manial your camera!

Learn from your experience: The result of this measurement does not consider the colour or brightness of the scene itself. For reflected light measurement, footcandle values cannot be given at all, since this method measures not the illumination but the brightness of the surface field luminance which can be expressed in footlamberts. The Gossen order code is VA.

Agfacolor Agfacolor With exposure times of more than 15 sec. I recently download a instruction manual for Lunasix 3 from http: I wondered what wrong with my Lunasix. Remember, that, when there are extreme contrasts in a scene, the film may not be able to cope with them!

However, the footcandle table can be of practical value for measuring direct light llunasix arc light, spots.

The LUNASIX 3 should not be considered a full-fledged footcandle meter because, strictly speaking, footcandles of illumination can be measured only be means of a flat interception screen.

Thus, under identical illumination, the indicator needle will be deflected less by dark objects than by bright ones.

To adjust the indicator needle to the zero check line, turn the zero adjustment screw 24 on the underside of the LUNASIX 3, while holding down the range selector It never reached to the check line zero line. Can you give me an advice why my meter can not be positioned zero properly? Thus, incident light measurement is ideal for the previous example with extensive very bright or very dark areas – it will give you perfect results. If you use Pay Pal, use the link below. The indicator needle should now rest on the check line to the left of the scale divisions Photographic subjects are usually three-dimensional and they are illuminated from many different directions sun, sky, reflections from buildings, trees, ground, etc.

But you want to see the very light, or very dark area in the finished picture again as “very light” or “very dark” – not as “grey”! Retrieved from ” http: This camera manual library is for reference and historical purposes, all rights reserved. The Personal Touch Do you really have to expose very mnual every time? Batteries for the Lunasix The Lunasix and Luna-pro meters are designed to use a pair of mercury cells. It might be the reason mankal I got the much higher light value.

The reason for this divergence lies in the fact that the effective sensitivity of every photographic emulsion is at a maximum at some specific level of illumination. The dial has three separate rings:.

It has further reduced sensitivity and does not provide flash goxsen. But, when is a scene “perfectly” exposed? The electrical energy which powers the precision mechanism of the LUNASIX 3 to deflect the indicator needle is here supplied by batteries.

Be critical of your results!
