    I also use this one. It simulates an analog meter with fancy sound effects that can by annoying. The Fotometer Pro app is pretty good. Don't know if it's the best.

    Pocket Light Meter will save your reading as a photo with f/stop and shutter speeds with GPS coordinates too. The price is right with this one. It's FREE.

    Your point of view is about as distorted as a Petzval.

    To say that someone is using an iPhone, and/or would buy an iPhone solely as a light meter is asinine.

    However, down here on earth, folks such as myself who got rid of their home phone, and use an iPhone as a cell phone, home phone, work phone, merchant services card processor, portfolio, email client, mileage tracker, gps navigator, weather forecaster, traffic checker, music player, address book, and social network connector..... why not enjoy the use of a handy light meter.

    So true. And the best light meter is the one you have with you and I always carry my phone. It's not as precise as my Minolta spot meter, but it will do in a pinch. It's within a stop during most average readings.

    100% correct! I can run my business on my iPhone, and I do a few times per week. The phone has paid for itself a million times over. The fact that it can actually double as a pretty good light meter, is a nice little bonus for a photographer

    Another big plus has to be that the iPhone doesn't look like a gun in a holster.

    Out of curiosity... how does it fair when metering subjects that are more than 25 feet away?

    I was looking at a Sekonic with spot meter capabilities but they are more than my Hassy set up.

    If this little app can save me $800 for another 6 months or so, its well worth its 99 cent price tag (in app purchase to get rid of ads) for me.

    I used it on the weekend whilst my girlfriend was shooting her 'Blad. It was late afternoon, so strong sidelighting, and she was shooting our 2 Golden Retrievers. Bit of a tough subject, but it did a really good job. As a spot meter, it is a great backup to my regular meter.

    Pocket Light Meter app allows you to geotag you analog photos and record the exposure for all those photographers that like good record keeping.
