Gossen Sixtomat F2 review

Gossen Sixtomat

 

We have begun to stock a new range of light meters. Essential for not just the studio photographers out there, but with added features for landscape and portrait photographers too.

Measuring ambient, incident flash and reflected light readings, the Gossen Sixtomat F2 is the swiss army knife of light-meters.

It has the ability to pre-select the aperture you need to create the desired depth of field and then take a meter reading from there to determine the shutter speed required for first time exposure accuracy, every time. With 1/10 stop accuracy for measurement and the ability to check the contrast range within your subject, you can be sure that your image will be exactly as you expect, removing any guesswork or trial & error.

For the studio the Sixtomat F2 can be operated in either corded flash mode or un corded flash mode, dependant on your requirements and to create greater depth of field in your subject, multiple exposure calculations can be achieved in the meter without needing a reference chart or scale.

When shooting with fill in flash for creative effect the Sixtomat F2 can display the ratio between flash and ambient light, ensuring that your flash equipment is set up to produce exactly the result you imagined.

The Sixtomat F2 even excels at night and can be used to determine exposure levels for up to 60 minutes making it ideal for creating star-scape images, panoramas and night scenes.

The Gossen Sixtomat F2 is available now from Castle Cameras for £149.
