The (circa) 2001 Gossen Starlite is a multifunction ("all-in-one") digital exposure meter incorporating several measurement modes: incident (photographic and photometric), reflected (selective and spot including zone system), flash (incident or reflected), and cine. The top part of the meter swivels, incorporating the incident measurement dome and a viewfinder for reflected measurement.

In spite of its many incorporated functions the Starlite is remarkably compact and lightweight.


A mechanical rotary dial surrounding the diffuser dome selects the measurement mode: photometric (incident with flat receptor, foot candle / lux readings), incident (domed receptor), or reflected (5° or 1°) using the built in viewfinder.

When using reflected light measurement up to nine readings may be be taken displaying either the average or contrast range (zone exposure system).
