The Polaris Digital Exposure Meter is a compact flash and ambient light meter that has many features of the more expensive flash meters. A unique multi-flash feature makes it simple to calculate how many times the flash must be fired to achieve a desired f-stop. The Polaris's large LCD display shows both the shutter speed and f-stop in 1/10 stop increments.
