Sekonic's popular Flashmate L-308S Flash Meter was a must-have for studio and on-location photographers. The L-308X comes packed with upgrades and features that make it the ideal all-in-one light meter for serious photographers. In PHOTO mode users have access to full exposure control, while HD_CINE and CINE modes are tailored to videographers working with shutter angles and specific frame rates.

The Sekonic Flashmate L-308X is a versatile light meter packed full of useful features and can be used as a photo meter, a flash meter, and Cine meter, a video meter, and a chroma-key illuminance meter.

Key Features: Sekonic Flashmate L-308X Flash Meter

  • Building on the legacy of the L-308S: Sekonic's Flashmate L-308S was the go-to industry-standard light meter for photo professionals, and the L-308X carries on where its predecessor left off
  • 3 light meters in 1:
    • Photo mode offers full exposure control. Shutter Priority and the new Aperture Priority settings work with your camera to find the right exposure settings, while a range of ambient and flash functions ensure the user always has the right tool at their fingertips.
    • HD_CINE mode caters for modern videographers. Determine the correct exposure based on your shutter speed or frame rate within one-tenth stop accuracy
    • CINE mode differs from HD_CINE mode in that it is aimed at video professionals. The added ability to work with shutter angles is a useful addition, while Lux and foot-candle readout make setting up lights a breeze
  • Illuminated display: View the screen in low-light conditions thanks to a backlit LCD that turns on automatically under EV5
  • Calibration compensation: Match the L-308X to other light meters or adjust it to match film and digital cameras (+/-1.0EV in 0.1 step)
  • Three custom settings: Three different custom settings for display mode, increment of measurement, or unit of illuminance are available to ensure the light meter and your camera are displaying the same information

Are you eligible for finance?

Applicants must be:

  • Aged 18 years or older from the application date
  • In permanent UK residence for a minimum of three years
  • Fulfil at least one of the following employment criteria:
    • In regular, permanent employment.
    • Retired from regular employment - With a minimum age of 50.
    • Not working through disability.
    • Self-employed.

Note: All applicants will be subject to a credit reference check by the lender.

The approval of your application depends on your financial circumstances and borrowing history. Warehouse Express Ltd trading as Wex Photo Video act as credit broker and not the lender. Barclays Partner Finance act as the lender.

Can I repay early? If so how?

No repayments are scheduled in the initial six-month deferral period. However, it is possible to pay off the loan, either by way of a lump sum or in smaller amounts. If the loan is fully repaid within the six-month deferral period, then no interest is payable, but a £29.00 early-settlement will be incurred. Such repayments may be made to Barclays Partner Finance by cheque, debit card or standing order. Unfortunately it is not possible to set up a direct debit within the deferral period. Further information on how to make such repayments will be set out in the loan agreement pack provided by Barclays Partner Finance.

What happens if I don't repay within the first six months (deferral period)?

Following the six month deferral period, Barclays Partner Finance will initiate a monthly direct debit payment for the remaining duration of the loan. Interest will be charged at a rate of 19.9% APR on outstanding balances (backdated to the first date of the loan). Late payment penalties and early repayment charges will apply from this point. Barclays Partner Finance will send a reminder letter approximately one month before the six month deferral period is due to elapse. Note: If you chose to spread the cost and pay monthly, interest is charged from the start of the loan, not from the start of the repayment period.

What will I receive from the finance provider (lender)?

Barclays Partner Finance will send a loan agreement pack approximately four weeks after delivery of the goods, confirming that the account has been activated and, from this point, it is possible to make repayments against the loan. You will also receive reminder letters and text at the end of the deferral period to remind you when your first payment is due.
