Sekonic Meter, CubeLite
The Studio Cubelite? is the ultimate solution for product photography and takes our highly successful Cubelite? concept even further. It allows for control of the light from below and all other directions allowing the photographer to give products that floating look with no shadows if desired. The tensioned diffuser fabric means the reflections on even the most reflective surface are kept to an absolute minimum, whilst the generous front opening can be closed to mask reflections from the camera/operator as well. The patented design also allows you to control the light from underneath by pointing the source up or down into the base unit giving different light distribution effects and creating graduated backgrounds if required.
