Doesn't agree with proper meter I saw this app and thought I'd give it a try. I've been a keen photographer for years, so have a handheld light meter. I'm afraid to say that the app didn't agree with the meter reading. Also it doesn't handle flash metering. So I think my trusty Polaris meter will still be hung around my neck at weddings and other events for the foreseeable future.
This app works, and it works really well, tested with multiple cameras, DSLR, film, different ISO speeds, it all comes out great, BUT... You have to manually adjust ISO each time you open the app. It's a simple step that is easily overlooked and will ruin your shot in a snap. I've overexposed many times from forgetting to adjust that - I wish I could set it and forget it, and adjust when I change film speed.
Accurate and simple I didn't test it against a proper Sekonic lightmeter but all the pictures I took with my film camera are spot on. I like the app a lot. Just a quick comment to the developer though: would it be possible to change the colours of whole seconds to orange? I think that's the standard on most cameras and lightmeters, sub-seconds are white and whole seconds orange. Plus that'll eliminate some minor confusions about repeating numbers on the main dial.
Functional but not usable The light meter functions work, but the app resets all settings everytime it's opened, as well as every time the phone is opened with the app still running. This makes it unusable at a moments notice, as everything must be reentered every single time. If the iso were to remain and the last mode used remained active it would be worth five stars
Pretty accurate as measured against my dslr's meter. I just don't know where the incident reading reads from (back or front camera). If i cover one or both, it's still jumping around. The reflective mode works dandy!
Solid app My Motorola Moto G measured within 0.3 stops of my Sekonic in normal lighting conditions. In very dark conditions it was not even close but that's just a limitation of my phone.
