Summarizing the meter, Professional Photographer writes,
The Sekonic L-308DC DigiCineMate light meter features three modes. In HD Cine Mode, designed for DSLR videography, you can take exposure readings and control light using shutter speed and frame rate, and also get aperture settings with 1/10-step accuracy. Cine Mode for digital cinematography provides the most useful frame rates and shutter angles for cinematic exposure control, as well as lux and footcandle readouts that enable quick lighting set-up. Photo Mode is optimized for still photography, with shutter-priority display of a full range of ambient and flash functions, including corded and cordless flash and ambient EV measurements.
