Just got an iphone5. What light meter ap is the best?
Well. I use one which i simply called light meter. Works great. Some articles floating around, and this one comes out on the top
The one called "Gossen LunaPro SBC".
Fotometer Pro works fine and is really cool looking. But the one called Light Meter works just as well and is easier to read.
That's pretty good. I use an original Luna-Pro that I modified by installing a voltage regulator and 357 silver batteries. Works PERFECT. I like it better than my 2 SBC's, because you can see the "trend" of the reading. The SBC's are null-meters that give no indication of what the light is really like. And the SBC's eat up those expensive 9 volt batteries like candy.
So far I've modified 2 of the older Luna-Pros with voltage regulators, and they are sweet. Ain't got no iphone, don't want one. I'm only interested in waiting till their stock bottoms out so I can buy a pile of it.
I have Light Meter. It has always matched my ambient meter and has ever held up for night shots when my ambient meter is useless.
I have this one, and it's always been as accurate as my Sekonic meter. I found it to have the most, and the best ratings when I downloaded it.
I use photometer. It has two screens to choose from. One of them looks like a classic dial meter and it works great. I have been using it for my LF shots for the last year now and it has never let me down.
That's the one I use as well. Pretty easy and saves info to a cloud account so you have notes about exposure along with an image. Good for those of us somewhat challenged at remembering to take notes. Always found it to be accurate.
I prefer "Luxmeter", as it shows EV values (nice for cameras that support them) and it has a super clean interface. Fotometer Pro looks very retro and cool and everything but is not as easy to use.
Still, I got a Sekonic L-208 for Christmas and have not used the iPhone apps since then. It is just easier, and has all the advantages of incident meters.
Check the one from Nuwaste called Pocket Light Meter.
