Depending on which Sekonic meter you buy, some make it easier than others to manage different functions, but yes, any light meter will work for any camera. Light is light.

Adam is correct. Light meters do not apply to the camera. Light is light. Assuming that your 2c is running at 24 FPS and your shutter is around 180 degrees, your meter should be set for a 1/48th of a second exposure time. Most meters have a cine setting or at least the ability to set the exposure time to a desired setting.
