A must-have for professional photographers, videographers and lighting technicians, Starlite 2 has it all: A swathe of features, coupled with a precise 1° spot-metering sensor and a range of modes, encompassing Exposure, Cine and Illumination/Photometry functions. The design features a splash-proof case, an adjustable diffuser for flat and spherical measurements and optical viewfinder for precise spot metering. More
Detailed Technical Specification
The compact Starlite 2 is capable of incident and reflected light measurement for flash and ambient light to determine photographically relevant exposure values which are displayed in 1/10 or 1/2 stop increments depending on the selected setting. The Starlite 2 masters all common lighting situations for analogue and digital photography, as well as filmmaking, with outstanding precision and time-tested quality.
The specialised, high performance Starlite 2 is the top-of-the-line model for semi-professional and professional users. 1° spot metering allows for detection of the smallest differences in brightness at a distance with the optical viewfinder, as well as for precise exposure.
The compact Starlite 2 is laid out for use in the studio as well as outdoors and is equipped with an adjustable diffuser for flat and spherical measurements.

Outstanding Exposure Meter for Photographers
Ambient light measurement can be performed with either aperture or shutter priority pre-selection, as well as with exposure values. Subject and lighting contrast can be measured as well. Contrast range is displayed in analogue format in 1/2 f-stops. A tonal value can be generated on the basis of up to 9 measurements by pressing the AVR key and displayed in both analogue and digital format.
Ergonomic Designed Meter
The Starlite 2 is laid out for convenient one-hand operation. It can be ideally preconfigured as an exposure meter or a CINE meter by means of the DIP switches in the battery compartment with standard settings or advanced functions, after which it can be operated automatically with the rotary knob and just a few clear-cut keys. The high contrast display, which is automatically backlit if required, is highly legible in both light and dark settings. Thanks to compact, low-profile design, its minimal weight and a rubberized grip, the Starlite 2 fits the hand perfectly. The splash-proof housing ensures carefree outdoor use.
Ideal for Flash Measurements
The Starlite 2 is capable of measuring individual flashes, calculating multiple flash illumination and analysing flash and ambient light – even with several flash units in combination. With the help of multiple flash calculation, the Starlite 2 automatically calculates the required number of flashes, if the flash unit’s power would be inadequate with a single flash.
Top Quality CINE Meter for Filmmakers
Film speed, open aperture angle in 5° steps and photometry settings can be selected in the CINE operating mode. The large digital display can be switched back and forth between measured aperture and illuminance or luminance for ambient light and flash. Contrast and mean value measurement is available as well. The cameraman is thus provided with a clear-cut display of all of the values required for a correctly exposed photo. The light technician has an efficient tool for effectively adjusting light.
Effectively Composed, Perfectly Illuminated – with the Zone System
With the Starlite 2, final visual results can be viewed for creative planning before the image is recorded. Use of an 11-stage zone system makes it possible
to evaluate deviating brightness within the subject in consideration of exposure, so adequate tonal values and detail are present even in the bright and dark areas of the subject in order to ensure exact reproduction. As a standard feature, acquired measurement results correspond to the middle gray tone (18% reflection) in the zone V tone scale. All of the details which are important for an image recording can then be individually measured on this basis.
