Overview

The L-558R DUALMASTER incorporates a wireless triggering transmitter built-in. It has been designed to meet the challenges and demands of today’s film and digital photographers. The L-558R offers versatile functions, to accommodate the most critical and precise photographic shooting conditions without sacrificing ease of use and affordability. It offers superior performance with new, redefined standards for precise, multi-function exposure and analyzing controls. With a turn of a knob the L-558R changes from an incident meter to a 1 degree spot meter all combined into one rugged, compact, all-weather housing. It features a Digital 1 degree Spot viewfinder, which displays f-stops, shutter speeds, EV and more. In electronic flash measurement modes, the flash-analyzing feature simultaneously evaluates both flash and ambient light. Along with many features such as special light measurement modes, extended sensitivity range, custom calibration and CINE mode, it also offers custom settings. The L-558R’s flexible design accommodates your ever-changing shooting situations. That’s because it’s the world’s first multi-function meter with Digital Wireless Freedom built-in. With its built-in radio transmitter you now can simultaneously trigger your remote camera and or flash units and measure the flash output wirelessly, eliminating the use of unreliable PC-synch cords or shutter release cables. The L-558R DUALMASTER... the Power of Control… the Freedom of Wireless.
