Very Accurate and easy to use I am using Samsung Galaxy Grand Quattro (Gt I8552) and the exposure is spot on. I tried all kinds of lighting scenarios but every time it nailed the exposure. Works like a charm in very tricky lighting also. The interface is easy to use and clutter free. I have been looking for something like this for a long time. Thanks a lot. Now I can use my TLR with ease..

Does what it says Very, very, very accurate on HTC One (M7). Does exactly what is supposed to. Perfect tool if you're running around with a film camera.
