THK Photo Products, Inc. of Long Beach, CA is offering the superb Kenko KCM-3100 color temperature meter for professional use, designed to ensure good color accuracy in a variety of shooting conditions, stills or movies, film or digital.
The KCM-3100, which is a three-color (RGB) hand-held meter, can read the temperature of ambient or flash light. The device uses three display modes for color â€“ LB (Light Balancing) where an LB index picks the right amber or blue LB filter; CC (Color Correction), which displays the corresponding Kodak filter number(s); and photographic color temperature in degrees Kelvin.
Thereâ€™s also an â€œAnalyze Modeâ€ for taking flash measurements. The meterâ€™s nine memory channels allow the photographer to enter custom settings based on the situations or individual film characteristics they are working with.
The Kenko KCM-3100 is priced at $1800 SRP.
