    Here in Arizona, our legislators say that would be a disadvantage

    It works on the iPod Touch and iPad (After the first model) so there is no ongoing cost for those of us who refuse to carry a cell phone of any kind.

    iPhone Holster

    Down in my part of Texas we wear the holster and carry the iPhone in a pocket. Seriously though, I got my iPhone used, like my film cameras, and got the light meter app just to see how cheap a "game" it was. But after checking it, I was surprised it does seem to work well enough for good lighting situations with snapshot film. To those doing business with their smart phone I will be getting the credit card terminal next.
    Thanks for letting me comment.

    My Girlfriend has the free app, and I checked it with my Sekonic. It's pretty accurate, in good light.

    Thank you for the tip, just installed it on my iPhone and it seems to be working very well. =)

    Again, it's free, so if you already have an iPhone, why the heck not?

    Never really understood people in such opposition to start using new (free) tools, what ever happened to curiosity?
    - At least you will have a backup, should something happen.

    The iPhone meter is better than my l-208 and my l-358 in the sense that I can actually see what I am metering with the iphone app, with my regular meters, it's guesswork, and I don't like to guess (or dish out $600 for a Seconic -758 with a proper spot meter on it).
