Exposure meter for flash and ambient light

The DIGIFLASH 2 is a lightweight and small exposure meter for flash and ambient light with some additional functions useful for photography.

With its compact, handy and lightweight design, DIGIFLASH 2 is an ideal enhancement for minimalistic, but nevertheless demanding photographic equipment. It expands the measuring functions of manually adjustable cameras to include incident light measurement, of which better exposure can be achieved for unusual subject contrast. The meter can also be used as a replacement for non-working internal meters of classic analog cameras.

Integrated contrast measurement also indicates whether or not subject contrast, i.e. the difference between the brightest and darkest part of the subject, can be managed by the sensor or the film. With its flash function, the DIGIFLASH 2 is the smallest flash meter in its class. The timer for longtime exposures, temperature monitoring for the camera bag and the clock with alarm round out the functions of the meter and transform it into an indispensable tool for the dedicated photographer. The combination of precision digital measuring technology and a clear-cut analog display is entirely unique. The measured exposure value is transferred to the settings window, after which all usable aperture / shutter speed combinations can be viewed at a glance – thus paying homage to traditional analog exposure meters.

Your advantages

  • Better exposures with incident light metering
  • Replacement of non-working camera meters
  • Individual or equipment-specific correction
  • Camera bag temperature monitoring
  • Long time exposure timer up to 30 minutes


The meter can be used for flash and ambient light measurement in analogue and digital photography. Shutter speed and aperture are calculated in incident or reflected metering mode to achieve a perfect exposure in manual camera settings.
