On production or postproduction, a grey levels scale permits to control very accurately the exposure of the pictures. It covers an exposure of -2 IL to +3 IL by half diaphragm increment (of -2 to +2 IL XpoGrey Compact). For example, when the clearest or darkest patches are too similar, it shows significantly when a picture is over or under-exposed.

To satisfy professional exigencies, all the areas (main area and levels scale) are measured with a spectrophotometer. The targeted values are known and written on the Lab zone under each grey area*.
