Ambient Light Readings 

First set the appropriate film type, choose the display mode and memory channel (if present). Set the Mode switch to "AMBI", then simply aim the meter’s light receptor at the scene and press the measurement button. Measurement readings will be calculated and appear in the almost immediately and color temperature measurements will be taken as long as the measurement button is held down. The KCM-3100’s measuring range for ambient light is EV 3 to 16.3 using ISO 100. 

Three Display Modes 

LB (Light Balancing) and CC (Color Compensating) Indexes 
The LB index is used to select the right amber or blue LB filter needed to balance a light source. Its measurement is the mired difference between the photographic color temperature specified for the selected film type and the temperature of the light source. The CC index is the value of the required magenta or green colored CC filter.
