That’s especially important for close-up measurements.

The built-in reflex finder with delineated “target” areas lets you pick out the exact portion to be measured. Keep this site quiet, please folks, because many of these useful web resources get taken down by spiteful companies that can’t be bothered to put their old manuals online themselves, but will move heaven and earth to stop other people providing that service for free.

It’ll make you feel better, won’t it? But there is another big problem that I can not fix it that is the needle can never be tested to the zero position.

It might be the reason why I got the much higher light value. 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 lumasix an average for which it indicates a suitable exposure time.

If you make several exposures of the same lunasx or subject with various exposure times, you will almost never get complete agreement among different judges as to which negative or which slide received “perfect” exposure!


You can read the pages one by one from the links below, or get the whole manual in pdf luansix you will need Acrobat Reader. To replace the batteries, unscrew the cover of the battery chamber 21 – a coin will be useful fossen this.

Can anybody tell me where to get the manual for Lunasix? Measuring comparisions of your LUNASIX 3 with similar or other types of exposure meters cannot be made properly without special laboratory equipment optical bench. The electrical energy which powers the precision mechanism of the LUNASIX 3 to deflect the indicator needle is here supplied by batteries. Exposure settings are then read from the computer dial, the lower window of which displays the measured EV “Exposure Value”.

Flash metering was incorporated, however sensitivity was reduced compared gossenn the Profisix as was the range of accessories Profisix accessories will not fit the Lunasix F.

Where to get the users instruction manual for Gossen Lunasix?

If the indicator needle is deflected only slightly below 12 on the scaletake a new reading by pressing the range selector forward. Use a reversal colour film; select several “normal” scenes; take careful reflected and incident light measurements and shoot!

If the previous impression was “dark”, you can be sure of utmost measuring accuracy. The main meter scale is also marked for over or under exposure. 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 – 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 manuql more and less than indicated by your LUNASIX 3.


Lunzsix afraid it sounds like it to me. Light Measurement – basic steps Press the range selector 15 backward and release it when the indicator needle 14 stops moving. Also ideal for light measurement of the aerial image in photography through terrestrial telescopes. I’m grateful to Rob Cole for sending me a pdf copy of the instruction leaflet for the attachment.

As an alternative to buying the Luhasix adapter, Sarah Fox has made a web page with instructions for adjusting the meter to work with silver-oxide cells. HI, Art I am using 2 pcs. One Stop more exposure less exposure. Profisix, Lunasix F, Lunalite Type: Otherwise, determine by how much you need to increase or decrease future exposure readings to get the best results.

To adjust the indicator needle to the zero check line, turn the zero adjustment screw 24 on the underside of the LUNASIX 3, while holding down the range selector While the element does not change its permanent properties under long exposure to light, it tends to retain the impression of light for a while. With inaccessible subjects, take the incident light measurement at a substitute spot which receives the same illumination as the subject.

The needle did swing to the left of the scale, but it never can reach to the check line zero line – the very left end line on the scale. The green and red ring indexes apply gosesn for measurements with the Variable Angle “spot meter” attachment.

Hi, Pete Many thanks for your advice and help. Photographic subjects are usually three-dimensional and they are illuminated from many different directions tossen, sky, reflections from buildings, trees, ground, etc.
