    Hi Ralph:

    From Ben earlier today....Check-out ehow.com. Converting Lux to EV; 5.5L=1 EV

    Stack Overflow says:

    EV Lux
    -1 1.25
    -0.5 1.75
    0 2.50
    0.5 3.50
    1 5.00
    1.5 7.00
    2 10.00
    2.5 14.00
    3 20.00
    3.5 28.00
    4 40.00
    1 EV is 5 Lux. 2 EV is 10 Lux. 3 EV is 20 Lux. Hmmm. It looks logarithmic:

    lux = (2 ^ ev) * 2.5;
    (2 to the power of EV, times 2.5)
    See also the Wikipedia article.

    You can also use Wolfram Alpha, which, e.g., confirms the above math by calculating 10 EV to be 2560 lux.

    Just remember that those values are for ISO 100, otherwise you have to adjust accordingly.

    Based on Brian's equation

    lux = (2 ^ ev) * 2.5 * 100 / iso

    Where iso is the film speed.

    But if you have an illuminance reading in Lux and want to covert to EV it's a bit more difficult.
    Log(Lux / 2.5) / Log(2)=EV for ISO 100
