The New Kenko KCM-3100 Color Temperature Meter

Kenko KCM-3100 Color Temperature Meter

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 – 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.

There’s also an “Analyze Mode” for taking flash measurements. The meter’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.
