    I agree with Barry S. I just downloaded it to my 3GS (in which it works perfectly) and ran a quick comparison test against a Minolta Auto Meter IIIF (which has 3 modes - reflective, incident, and spot), a Gossen Digisix (which has reflective and incident), and my Mamiya 645 with AE prism (which does average and/or spot readings). All readings were taken for ISO 100 against a red brick wall and also an 18% grey card in bright sunlight over a 10 minute period. There was no more than one stop difference between any of them. Some readings said 1/1000 @ f5.6 and some said 1/500 @ f5.6. The meters with multiple modes varied within themselves between modes, but the iPhone meter was consistently 1/500 @ f5.6 against both surfaces. All this indicates to me that the iPhone meter would be OK most of the time, maybe slightly better when using negative film because I had the feeling that it was consistently reading just slightly over the "real" meters. I have previously downloaded two other light meter apps which seemed to vary by up to three stops and are harder to use, so this one gets my thumbs-up.

    No wonder the film companies are dropping products left and right! You guys are spending all your money on whiz-bang electronic gizmos, and have none left over for film!

    My phone is employer-supplied, and the app was free, which leaves maximum available funds for film purchase. My film purchases are limited more by my ability to store it and use it than by shortage of funds. At the moment I am feeling particularly frustrated about my ability to use film because I am pretty well confined to barracks with an outbreak of shingles

    Unfotunately, the only phone I have is fixed to the wall and attached to the exchange by a wire. I don't think this application will work for me!

    You're a free man Steve. Mobile phones are ball and chains. The smart phones can also reveal where you are. It's like wearing one of those GPS gadgets for folks under house arrest. The only escape is ditching your Smart phone. Convenience=slavery.

    I would throw my phone away in a hot minute if I could get away with it.

    OTOH I *CAN* post this message sitting here without my computer. But it isn't getting me any pictures.

    Hmmm, is your telephone color near 18% gray by any chance?


    Seriously though, your telephone does not require daily recharging, which my iPhone does
    Those who know, shoot film

    I love my Android fone. The OS is based on linux so I know it is going to be rock solid and open. I agree the Apple products are way to buttoned down.
