Drawing on the revered heritage of the L-308 series, which debuted nearly 25 years ago, the innovative Sekonic FLASHMATE L-308X is engineered to surpass the expectations of today's photographers and videographers. This new model retains the compact size, lightweight feel, and user-friendly interface that have made the L-308 series a favorite while incorporating the valuable cine/video capabilities of the cost-effective DigiCineMate L-308DC.

As DSLR cameras have evolved, they have broadened the creative possibilities for contemporary creators, allowing them to effortlessly merge still photography with dynamic video for compelling narratives. The FLASHMATE L-308X embodies the advanced functionality expected from the latest L-308 series iteration, including an LCD backlight, Aperture priority mode for photographers, and an ISO 850 setting tailored for cine cameras' native ISO sensitivity. This model represents the ideal fusion of photography and cine features in a single light meter.

Three Meters in One
The FLASHMATE L-308X is versatile enough to handle various lighting situations, whether you're photographing a wedding, creating instructional videos, or shooting a cinematic documentary. It delivers precise, comprehensive light measurements that empower creators to take control of their visual storytelling.

Designed for photographers working on location or in the studio, the FLASHMATE L-308X offers comprehensive exposure management. It introduces an Aperture Priority Mode for effortless depth-of-field adjustments, along with a suite of ambient and flash measurement options, including both corded and cordless flash, and ambient EV measurement, all clearly displayed for easy reference.

Compact and portable, the FLASHMATE L-308X is an exceptional tool for videographers, featuring a suite of sophisticated functions typically found on more advanced models. It ensures precise exposure readings and lighting control with settings for shutter speed and frame rate, delivering aperture readings with one-tenth stop accuracy.

Tailored for the demands of digital cinematography, the FLASHMATE L-308X allows professionals to select the optimal combination of frame rates and shutter angles for precise exposure control, with accuracy to one-tenth of a stop. It supports Lux (lx) and foot-candle (fc) measurements for quick lighting setup, packaged in a compact, affordable, and easy-to-use meter.

Three Ways to Measure
Slide the built-in lumisphere to measure ambient, reflected, or contrast lighting with or without the optional lumidisc for precise flat subject or contrast measurements.


  • The backlight LCD automatically activates in low light (under EV5).
  • Calibration compensation allows for fine-tuning to match specific camera systems or align with other meters (+/-1.0EV in 0.1 step).
  • Custom settings enable users to tailor display modes, measurement increments, and illuminance units (lux or foot candles) to their specific needs and equipment.
