Super Zoom Master L-608/L-608
Congratulations on your purchase of a Sekonic Super Zoom Master L-608/L-608CINE Exposure Meter.
The Super Zoom Master L-608/L-608CINE is the latest addition to the extensive line of Sekonic Exposure Meters which have been market leaders. It was designed to be the ultimate meter, a do-all instrument for the most demanding pros. It is the first zoom spot meter with digital spot viewfinder readout on the market. Nine camera-quality lens elements are required to accomplish its 1 to 4 zoom range. its sealed housing and controls make it water and moisture resistant. Yes, you can use it in the rain, but it is not an underwater meter. The large LCD display makes reading easy, and it lights up automatically in dark surroundings. In order not to crowd the controls, four functions which are less frequently used, are confined to DIP switches, located in the battery compartment. Because of its many features, the L-608/L-608CINE requires this rather extensive manual. But since you will never use all of the function at the same time, once you have learned all about it, it is simple and its use will become second nature. The Super Zoom Master L-608/L-608CINE has undergone extensive quality controls at every step of manufacture. Please read this instruction manual thoroughly, to be able to take advantage of its many features and to obtain the long service life it is designed for. Thank you for your confidence in Sekonic.

Please place in a location where an infant cannot reach and accidentally get the strap wrapped around his or her neck. There is danger of strangulation. 2. Inserting the battery 1. Requires one 3.0 v CR123A lithium battery. 2. Open the Battery compartment cover latch !7, and remove the Battery compartment cover !6. 3. Insert the battery, observing the polarity with the +,- marks in the battery chamber. 4. Align the tabs of the Battery compartment cover with the notches in the back of the meter, and press down to close the Battery cover latch. NOTE: To prevent loss of All-weather seal, be careful that dirt does not get stuck on the rubber seal and that the seal is not damaged. Remove battery if meter is not used for an extended period. Batteries can leak and damage the exposure meter. Dispose of used batteries properly. If the LCD does not light, check that the battery capacity is sufficient, and check that the battery positive and negative terminals are not reversed. The meter has a connector for a plug-in radio transmitter module. Do not remove the connector cover unless you are installing the radio module, failure to do so could cause the electronic circuit board to be exposed to damaging static electricity.
Checking battery capacity When the Power button !2 is ON, the battery power indicator on the LCD is displayed. (Displayed) Battery power level is good. (Displayed) Battery power level is low. Have a spare battery ready. (Blinking) Replace battery immediately.
Reference: We recommend you always have a spare battery on hand. If the liquid crystal display extinguishes immediately after the display appears when power is first applied, that is an indication that the battery is dead. Please promptly replace the battery. A3 second pause between power on and off is recommended to avoid damage to the meter. -4-
4. Replacing battery during measurement or when using the memory function 1. Always turn the power OFF before replacing batteries. If batteries are removed with the power ON, measurements and settings in memory can no longer be recalled. 2. If after replacing the battery, or during measurements, strange screens (displays that have not been set) appear in the LCD, or nothing happens, no matter what button is pushed, remove the battery and wait at least ten seconds and then replace the battery. This allows the software to automatically reset.
The spot metering area can be selected by turning the Zoom Lens ring @6 while looking through the viewfinder from the camera position.
Take the measurement by aligning the circle inside the viewfinder with the subject area to be measured. The black circle A in the finder indicates the measurement range. The light receiving angle is 1 degree with the telephoto setting of the zoom lens and 4 degrees with the wide angle.
(Display in spot viewfinder) < Diopter Adjustment > Turn the eyepiece @4 and adjust the diopter so that the circle in the finder is clearly visible when you look into the finder. < Step-Up Ring (Lens Hood)> (optional) The step-up ring (30.5mm 40.5mm), available as an optional accessory, makes it possible to mount step-up rings and filters. This simplifies the setting of exposure without the troublesome correction calculation of polarizing filters, etc. The step-up ring can also be used as a hood to protect the zoom lens from scratching, soiling, etc. < 2x Angle Converter > (optional) Mounting the 2x angle converter to the objective lens unit enables zoom measurements at a light receiving angle of 2 - 8.
< Lumigrid > (optional) (Receiving Angle 54) 1. Remove the Lumisphere The lumisphere unit is removed by holding both the upper and lower sections of Lumisphere retracting ring q and turning it counterclockwise while pushing the Lock lever downward.

There is danger of electric shock if the meter is handled with wet hands, during rain, in areas splashed by water or where there is a lot of moisture, if you use cord synchronized flash. Under such conditions, it is recommended that you use the meter in the cordless flash mode or Wireless flash radio triggering mode, and keep the Synchro terminal cap in place. NOTE: The electronic flash unit may trigger when you connect the Synchro cord or operate the POWER Switch. Triggering voltage is 2.0 to 400 volts. For below 2.0V, trigger flash with the cordless flash mode or wireless flash radio triggering mode, not synchro cord.
Reference: It is possible to switch the shutter speed between full, 1/2 and 1/3 stops by custom setting of the DIP switch 4 (refer to P33). The shutter speed can be set from 30 minutes to 1/1000 of a second. After 1/1000 sec, the meter can be set at the following intermediate speeds: 1/75, 1/80,1/90, 1/100, 1/200, or 1/400. If the film speed is changed after the measurement is taken, the new converted measured value (f stop value) will be displayed. After measurement, the F stop value corresponding to the shutter speed is displayed when the shutter speed is changed. E.u (Exposure under) or E.o (Exposure over) appears when the combination of shutter speed and aperture are outside the display range. Change the shutter speed with the Jog wheel and take measurements again. If the E.u or E.o readout blinks, this indicates that the light level is beyond the measurement range of the light meter.
2-2 Auto-reset cordless flash mode Measurements are made by the meter receiving the light from the flash. This measurement mode is used when the Synchro cord will not reach because of the distance between the flash and meter or when use of the Synchro cord is inconvenient. 1.

9. Flash analyzing function When measuring flash light, the shutter speed and F stop value (value combining ambient light and flash light: total amount of light) are displayed in the liquid crystal display and the ambient light and flash light are each displayed as separate values together with the total amount of light on the analog scale. In addition, the ratio of flash light to the total amount of light is displayed at that time as a value in 10% steps. It is possible to use this value for adjustments, for example, when photographing with a flash in a room illuminated by tungsten light, to emphasize or weaken the tungsten (ambient) light element (enhancing the flash light of the photograph) to match the photographer's intentions. < Example > If, under certain conditions, the flash light component is 60% and the tungsten output component is 40%, the display will be as indicated at the right. Flash reading on the analog scale will blink.
< Example with optional 32 channels receiver > 1. Open battery compartment cover !6 , remove connector cover and set the RT-32 radio transmitter module (optional) by aligning the connector with the pins.
To prevent damage due to static electricity, release static electricity stored in your body by touching a metal object nearby (door knob, aluminum window frame, etc.) before touching the radio transmitter module.
Switch to the Wireless flash radio triggering setting mode by using Jog wheel t while pressing mode. set button !0
3. The set channel number will blink on and off at this time. Turn the Jog wheel to set the channel setting. In the Setting mode, "ch" appears on the ISO display area. At the same time, channel numbers (1 to 16 and 17 to 32) appear on the F display area. When the channel number is 17 to 32, subchannel (A, b, c and d) settings are displayed on the T indicator. In the absence of settings, "" appears in the figures.
In sub-channel settings, after the channel is set to 17 to 32, the mode button is pressed. Following this, the 4th figure on the T display area blinks to indicate that settings may be made. Every time the mode button is pressed, the blinking settings shifts from sub-channel No. : 4th figure 3rd figure 2nd figure 1st figure channel No., while permitting settings for each subchannel. As the Jog wheel is rotated in this state, setting ("A, b, c and d" displayed) and resetting ("-" displayed) alternate. During this process, the indicator continues to blink to indicate the channel being set. Set by manipulating the mode set button. Set by manipulating the Jog wheel.
When using quad channels 17-32, it is not possible to terminate this mode unless a subchannel has been set (a, b, c or d is displayed).
6. Upon setting completion, the Wireless flash radio triggering mode or Wireless multiple flash radio triggering mode is selected using the Jog wheel while the Mode set button is pressed. For other settings of the measurement, see page 16. Confirm that the meter and the radio receiver are set to the same channel number. The flash unit will fire when the measurement button of the meter is pressed and measurements can be made at the same time.
Reference: Refer to the receiver instruction manual for the receiver operating method. Maximum controllable distance of the radio flash trigger system differs depending on the placement of the device, direction and other factors. 1. Confirm the direct visible range between the transmitter and receiver. 2. Place the meter and receiver away from large metal objects, concrete, objects with large moisture content (both people and trees fall into the category) and so forth. 3. Secure the radio receiver in place by using Velcro tape or mounting 1/4-20 thread. Be sure that the entire length of the receiver antenna is higher than the flash pack at this time. Avoid contact between the receiver antenna and metal objects at all times. 4. Depending on the location, there may be cases when the receiver is incapable of receiving any radio signals whatsoever. There are various possible reasons for this such as radio signals reflected from nearby objects. This can generally be resolved by shifting the device slightly in one direction or another. In addition, confirm that the device is not placed behind objects that readily absorb or deflect radio signals such concrete, metal, low hills, etc.
