Great for my Leica M6 This works great for my Leica M6 better than the 2 arrows light meter. My exposures come out exact perfectly which lets me make perfect use of making large prints from color positive slide film and Kodak ektar. It also gives wide latitude film amazing dynamic range both ways. Best photography meter app ever.
Excellent app, works well on my phone. Works really well on Galaxy S6. Farley easy to use with a clear and easy to read output. For those that have left bad reviews, you can't blame the app, the problem is your device's sensor, end of story. Big thank you to the dev for an amazing and helpful app. ☺
Pleasantly surprised I just installed and tested this. I set the fstop and iso to something that I would use inside my home. The shutter speed was too fast so I knew that the calibration had to be off for my Galaxy S3. I grabbed my Sekonic, and figured out how to get ev out of it and convert it to lux to set the correction in my phone. After that it is a little off from my sekonic under random light sitations in the house, but it is close enough that the exposure would be usable. I calibrated at 3.5ev. Initally when testing with my 1000 lumen led flashlight I was getting about .5ev difference between the two, but then I found setting the phone sensor so it was the same height as my approximately one inch thick meter corrected that also. My phone maxes out at 15ev with my flashlight resting on it. The sekonic read 18.6ev under the same condition, so I gueess that value is the max for my phone.
I recommend it (tested on Galaxy note II) I have tried many other light metet aps and for me this is one of the best. The only thing its reading only incident light and no option for reflective light. Its Simple, easy with good results. It will not replace the professional light meter but its helpful for low budget photographers who can't afford to buy a light meter. Thanks for the app.
Sort of works but why bother? Makes use of the ambient light sensor, which is designed to adjust screen brightness. Accuracy, repeatability and working range are not required for this function which severely limits the utility of this and similar apps. You would be much better downloading a set of exposure tables.
Useful starting point Ok, so the app may not be as accurate as a purpose built dedicated light meter, but I find it's accurate enough to provide a solid starting point with only minor tinkering needed if any in continuous lighting conditions. No strobe function? To those who are complaining about a lack of basic f stops... (f1.8 for example!) change the apps settings to 1/3 incrimants Brilliant for the price (free!)
