Sample text

THE MEASUREMENT OF LUMINANCE Luminance can be defined as the rate at which the unit area of a source emits light in a specific direction. If a source is not a point source but has an appreciable size (as all real sources do), it is less useful to describe the intensity of such a source than to specify its luminance. Luminance is derived from intensity measurements, which are then related to the projected surface of the source. 30–1988 Comparison viewing/ critical appraisal Display, judging, & routine inspection Transparency viewing 2200 ± 470 lux 800 ± 200 lux 1400 ± 300 cd/m2 The inverse-square law does not apply to luminance, which does not change with viewing or measurement distance.

A working idea of this unit may be obtained by holding a lighted candle one foot from a newspaper in an otherwise darkened room. The result will be approximately one footcandle of illumination. 02 footcandle; a well-lighted street gives approximately 5 footcandles; a well-lighted classroom has nearly 50 footcandles of illumination; in daylight in open shade there are approximately 1,500 footcandles of illumination, and in direct sunlight approximately 12,000 footcandles. To photograph a moonlit scene on ISO 100 speed film would require an exposure of about 10 seconds at f/2, plus any additional exposure required to compensate for the reciprocity effect resulting from the long exposure time.
