    iPhone light meter even better!

    Now this is cool. The Light Meter app is even better. Now you can log via Drop Box. It will take a photo, log the exposure and geotag. Once you've logged on to your Dropbox account. The photos and data is uploaded into a folder. Way cool! Remember those days of those paper logs? Well no more! I've tested the app against my minolta meter iv and it's pretty accurate. Here's the link:

    If they built a waterproof incident meter into an I-Phone, I may actually get one!

    I have this app, and use it quite a lot. Still have my Pentax analog spot meter for those times I need that, but most times this works great for me.

    Still one of the best bargains out there.

    iPhone + 2 years voice and data is very close to US$1900 from what I can find. Then whatever the app costs. That's about US$70/month in continuing usage costs for the life of the device/contract. I guess it depends on what you decide to count and not count.

    I doubt anyone would buy an iPhone to simply use as a light meter.

    I have both lightmeters on my iPhone but I hadnt checked the log out 'till just now. It takes the bite out of pen and pad.

    As do I. However, a light meter with an ongoing monthly cost of US $70 (even if it's a shared cost) doesn't appear to me to be one of the best bargains out there, and that outlay is required before one can use the app. Obviously individual folks will decide for themselves about that, and the apps are selling.

    Funny thing hapenned recently at a photo shoot meet-up with fellow APUG-gers in Hamilton, Ontario when some one pulled out his IPhone or Blackberry to measure light with a dedicated app. I asked him to compare his reading with my 58 years old Zeiss Ikophot. There was no difference. That is not to say one is better than the other.
    I'm happy that my job never forced me into owning an IP, BB, androids or whatever they call them today. Such a device comes with the expectation that you are available to your employer/ customer 24/ 7 so even if you don't pay for it it still takes away some of your freedom.

    I do tech support and I'm glad my emplover doesn't make me carry one. It's an electronic ball and chain. I love my job, but I don't want to mix the two.
