Developer's Description

Turn your device into a professional light (lux) meter! 0 to 1000 lux range.

Professional light intensity (lux) meter for your device.

It measures illumination levels in lux.

? direct reading in lux
? 0 to 1000lux in 2 ranges
? automatic range change
? support for neutral filters
? more range by using filters
? more range by using dividers
? 5% max error (device dependent)
? predefined and custom calibration
? vintage analog look
? 14 case skins

This app requires devices with a light sensor. It uses native light sensor data acquisition that gives accurate and instant light intensity reading. This type of native data acquisition is available only for:
? HTC (Hero, Magic, MyTouch, Legend, Desire, Wildfire etc.)
? Samsung (SGS, SGS2, Vibrant, Epic, Captivate, Fascinate, Tab, Note etc.)
? Sony Ericsson (SE X8i, X10 etc.)
? Asus (EeePad, Transformer etc.)
Other devices are also supported through included compatibility mode but the accuracy and the speed of light intensity reading may be limited and custom calibration is required for correct reading under compatibility mode.

Also, on some devices the light sensor may not be linear, not continuous and measuring errors will occur or the maximum measuring range may be limited. This is not app’s fault.

"FWD:labs carries the most complete listing of linked professional apps I know besides of the fragmented Android Market (google play) and the iPhone App Store. I suspect it is a tenuous work to compile and link all proven working apps and much more your site offers. I thank you for sharing such complete list of iPhone and android apps for the cinematographer and the entertainment industry in general. I could not pass the opportunity let know my readers about your meticulous resource."
"[R]idiculously useful compendium"
Directors Notes
"I thought [FWD:labs] had put together a useful list when I saw it last year, but that was nothing compared to now. If you're a filmmaker and looking for a little portable help in pre/production/post then chances are you'll find it in the Apps for Cinema Artists. I know I can be a little iPhone-centric when it comes to these things, but you’ll be pleased to know the list is completely platform agnostic."
Directors Notes
Pretty much every iPhone or Android App you'll ever need/want if you're a filmmaker
