When you have your finished transparencies, select the ones which, in your judgment, are “perfect” and compare them with your notes concerning exposure measurements, etc.

But – each time make a series of 5 exposures; in addition to the one at the indicated exposure time, make one each at a full step and one-half step more and less than indicated by your LUNASIX 3. Batteries for the Lunasix The Lunasix and Luna-pro meters are designed to use a pair of mercury cells. For black-and-white or colour negative films, this is usually a darker area which is to show details in the final print; for reversal colour slide or movie films, however, the lighter areas are usually favoured.

It converts instantly, and without accessories, from reflected to incident light measurement – and you’ll find its one-hand operation even with a glove on a great boon when moments count on location, or in the studio.

It is advisable to write to the film manufacturer for information concerning the necessary exposure correction and filtering for colour correction of the specific film which you are using with extended exposure times. And, normally, the exposure indicated in this manner is perfectly correct.


However, instead of pointing the LUNASIX 3 towards the camera, you point it parallel to an imaginary line from the object to the camera.

The Gossen website explains that this adapter is expensive, because it is hand-made in small numbers. Move the converter slide 10 all the way to the right; this uncovers the round window. Deviations from correct exposure will produce trans parencies that are either too light or too dark; you may also get distortion of colours. Null pointer ambient and flash meter Display: In spite of mechanical display and “computer” dial, these meters are electronic as circuitry to store the light reading is necessary for flash measurement.

Profisix, Lunasix F, Lunalite Type: In the case of reflected light measurement, the LUNASIX 3 collects, within a certain angle, the light which is reflected from these many individual parts of the scene; it adds up all the light and strikes an average for which it indicates a suitable exposure time.

The reason for this divergence lies in the fact that the effective sensitivity of every photographic emulsion is at a maximum at some specific level of illumination. This page was last modified on 26 Novemberat The Gossen company has produced an adapter to allow the use of a pair of easily-obtained silver-oxide cells in these meters.

The LUNASIX 3 should not be considered a full-fledged footcandle meter because, strictly speaking, footcandles of illumination can be measured only be means of a flat interception screen.

Built-in light conductor instead of a mirror for greater accuracy and efficiency. Pointer needle with mechanical computer Sensor: You will find additional information about all scale values on page As you press the selector forward, the values 1 to 12 appear in the upper frame, and the upper scale divisions apply, when you press the selector backward, the values 12 to 22 appear in the lower frame to which the adjacent lower scale divisions apply.


The “Profi-System” line continued and ended with the Mastersix. Black-and-white films, generally, tolerate moderate deviations from normal conditions.

Unlike conventional exposure meters whose photoelectric cell consists of a selenium element, the LUNASIX 3 has a photo-conductive cell and is powered by tiny mercury batteries. After inserting fresh batteries, immediately make the battery test described above.

I wondered what wrong with my Lunasix.

For black-and-white or colour negative film, however, the shadow portions which are to have some detail in the finished print must be given consideration. In spite of its name, it is not related to the Lunasix at all, but does share the same range of clip on accessories. But soon the demands goossen more stringent, especially when results are com pared.

The Lunasix F was Gossen’s last professional meter with a mechanical moving needle display and the last without a microprocessor. If the light is so poor that you cannot observe the movement of the needle, simply hold down the selector for several seconds.

The Personal Touch Do you really have to expose very critically every time? Thus, under identical illumination, the indicator needle will be deflected less by lunnasix objects than by bright ones.
