Light Meter Tools

Light Meter Tools


A reflected light meter with spot metering (using the device's camera) and an incident light meter (using the device's light sensor) in one app. Tested accurate against Gossen and Sekonic meters on most devices.

Download the trial first to see if the app works on your device, email me if you have any issues.

Can be used for any type of camera from film SLR to pinhole to cinematographic.

In addition to the two meters, the app includes a Sunny Sixteen calculator and a Depth of Field calculator.

Absolutely splendid. This app is perfect for manual cameras. It's 100 times cheaper than a light meter, but so much better! First, it has an intuitive and useful interface, no cutesy old-fashioned skin. Second, spot metering is much easier with a live preview and no $300 light meter has that. Third, it makes adding ND filters super-easy. Fourth, there's a free DOF calculator. Features I'd like: to remove options that I can't use (no ISO 5000 setting) and a more intuitive red-green button on the preview window.

Stuck on camera metering mode On the Sony z3 android 4.4.4 the app remains stuck in the camera metering mode once run for the first time and it's not possible to access any option or change mode afterwards. The only solution seems to uninstall and reinstall the app every time.

Excellent Very accurate meter, I've compared it regularly against my Nikon DSLRs and it's perfect.

Works! Great app, did a more recent test, shot half a roll with the app and the other with a trusted sekonic L-208, and the results were too close to tell the difference. Short story, if you are just starting out, get this app!
