Sekonic Announces Upgrade to its Data Transfer Software
Total exposure accuracy now available for photographers and videographers
North White Plains, NY (June 4, 2012) – Sekonic announces today a free downloadable upgrade to its Data Transfer Software (DTS) allowing for automated DSLR and Digital Video Camera meter calibration. Sekonic’s new DTS Version 3.0 enables the measuring of the dynamic range of a DSLR or Digital Video Camera and calibrating a photographer or videographer’s Sekonic L-758DR DigitalMaster and L-758Cine DigitalMaster meter to that specific data.
Using the automated process requires recording images of one of Sekonic’s Exposure Profile Targets or one of X-Rite’s ColorChecker® series targets, available as a separate purchase. Once recorded, the processed TIFF or JPEG image files are imported into Sekonic’s DTS software for processing and mapping. The DTS system also allows users to manually enter data obtained from shooting other industry-standard targets to create a profile.
After processing, a USB cable is used to transfer the data to one of the Sekonic L-758 meters. Up to three camera profiles can be stored in the meter. Any number of profiles can be stored with the software. Once loaded, the Sekonic L-758 DigitalMaster meters make incident and reflected-light, spot readings that are precisely tuned to the dynamic range of the profiled camera.
New Features of Sekonic’s Data Transfer Software Version 3.0 include:
- +/- 10 Step Dynamic Range Measurement
- Time input in Frames per Second and Shutter Angle as well as Shutter Speed
- Compatible with Sekonic and X-Rite ColorChecker targets
- Manual Dynamic Range input for importing data from industry standard targets
The new application for both Windows and Mac OS X can be downloaded for free from the Sekonic Web site.
