Sekonic L-VI Manual

Dave Dunne put up a cool blog post featuring a vintage Sekonic L-VI manual.

See more after the jump.

The old L-VI seems to have some other fans, as it’s also enshrined here. These meters were wildly popular back in the 1950s, and there’s still over 37,000 listings for them on Google. Outfitted with a selenium cell, many these battery-free units are still working in the field.

Last year, Ron Plasencia reached out to us to share the story of his vintage and still-working L-28c, which is only 36 years old—a mere babe compared to the L-VIs still out there and functioning.

Dave’s got some very cool black and white film work of his own on his blog. If you’d like to know more about Dunne, you can check him out here.

    I am following the istructions to change from shutter priority mode (T) to aperature priority mode to no avail.  I am holding down the mode button while rotating the jog wheel, but the (F) is never selected.  It just rotates through the metering modes and the the channel selection.  What am I doing wrong?

    I just bought the Sekonic L-VI and it is such a gem! It’s been maintained and kept in pristine condition. I can’t wait to start using it in the field. Thanks for posting a link to the manual!
