    Taking pictures is easy. Making photographs is hard.

    The battery in my LunaSix was installed in 1998. My Weston doesn't have a battery/cell, just a photovoltaic cell which was factory installed. In the mid 1950s.

    But by all means, go out and get an i-thingy. Don't go far from an outlet, though.

    As previously mentioned, buying an iPhone for the purpose of installing a light meter is asinine. But if you're going to have a smartphone that is capable of also being a pretty good light meter, why not add the capability? Or are you just so bitter that you have to piss on everything that isn't to your taste?

    Hardly. Were that the case I'd have no time for anything else, since quite a lot of things are "not to my taste". Mostly I ignore them. I think that smartphones/cellphones are a bane. When I'm out for the specific purpose of photography, the last thing I would bring with me is a telephone. Carrying a phone with you all the time, everywhere you go (in the absense of some sort of pending family or personal emergency) could be classified as a mild form of mental illness.
