Save £25 on a Polaris Flash Meter

Polaris Flash MeterWe all like a bargain and right now you can save £25 off the normal price of the fantastic Polaris Flash Meter, which we have reduced from £143.99 to £118.99.
Measure for measure, there is nothing that comes close to the Polaris and although a professional exposure meter, with world-class features and performance, it is now at a price that most students of photography will equally feel at home with.

Polaris is a dual-meter too. You can use it outside for ambient light or inside the studio for flash light exposure.

We particularly like the new features built into the Polaris including:

1) Eight additional shutter speeds available to match the sync speed of virtually any camera.
2) No guessing or searching for a shutter speed close to the sync speed of your camera.
3) The Multi-flash feature which makes it simple to calculate how many times the flash must be fired to achieve a desired f/stop.
4) Its oversized LCD display that shows all the data and functions clearly and easily, even at full arm's length.
5) Large "analogue" scale for easy fractional measurements.
6) Custom Program Level Function that let you personalize your meter to match your style of shooting.
7) Adjust the meter level or return to standard levels with the touch of a button.

Compare the Polaris to the Sekonic L308S to see what great value it is:
