Stupid question, but I have an L-478D that has filter factors in it.  I'm assuming this is for lens filters and not gels on lights seeing that the meter is going to read the filtered light, correct?

Stupids questions are the ones not asked. Sometimes, all that's needed is a little clarification. It's part of how we learn.
