This is a must have tool for any director of photography or lighting technician. It speeds up the process of color matching pro lighting from different manufacturers. There’s also a gel feature that tells you exactly which gels to use to correct a specific color cast. The ability to test the quality of light and color rendition alone is what makes this tool worth the investment. You can’t go wrong with a meter made by Sekonic, a leading industry standard brand of color and light meters. I just wish it was also a light meter. Recommended alternative: LightSpectrum Pro app - in my testing, It’s fairly close to the color readings of the Sekonic meter. However, Sekonic is loaded with many useful metrics that the app lacks.
Pros: color matching accuracy + several useful color metrics.
Cons: pricey, no light metering.
