VOIGTLÄNDER Light Meter VC II (Black)

  • Voigtländer Light Meter VC II overview

    Voigtlander Light Meter VC II is an invaluable accessory which makes a great back up meter for modern digital cameras, or adds a new lease of life to an older unmetered camera.


    Our own experience is that an external light meter always allows you to capture the accurate exposure on the field as opposed to the in-camera metering that may not always be correct or the histogram may suggest otherwise. Even though the modern digital cameras have great dynamic range, however, any loss of details on the field (when under / over exposing) can never be added back or retrieved using any post processing software, especially when you have not been able to correctly capture ambient light to be used as a reference point. The TTL metering in digital cameras have a very narrow field of view, is always reflective, and there are several real-world examples that exists to show how an internal light meter can fail you in a scene that has complex mix of whites & blacks. 


    The professionals use external light meters, however, our minimalist little gem is both intuitive, accurate and very easy to use without complicating your system giving excellent results always

  • How to use

    1. Push open the battery compartment and insert the two LR44 or SR44 batteries into it
    2. Mount the meter to your camera's hot or cold shoe (the dials must face towards you)
    3. Select the ISO by rotating the left floating dial (with the small stub on it)
    4. Select the Aperture by rotating the left dial
    5. Select Shutter speed by rotating the right dial
    6. The left & right LEDs glow red and the center LED as green
    7. Left LED indicates overexposed
    8. Right LED indicates underexposed
    9. Center LED indicates correct exposure
    10. Press the orange button to meter & you get 10 seconds to achieve your desired exposure
    11. Apply the ISO, Aperture & Shutter speed settings to your camera & shoot!
    12. Note that when you press the orange button to meter, the LEDs stay on for 8 seconds
    13. Also note that the under / over exposure indicators of the meter are opposite of what you interpret from the histogram i.e. in a histogram, left indicates underexposed and right as overexposed
    14. Use a precision screwdriver to adjust the shoe mount on the meter to position it as desired.
    15. If you have no hot/cold shoe on your camera, simply hold it in your hand to meter or just paste it using a double sided 3M tape if you like
