Super Zoom Master
Congratulations on your purchase of a
Sekonic Super Zoom Master L-608/L-608CINE
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
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
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
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.
