    Like an awful lot of people, I essentially always have my phone on me. Well, now that means I've always got a light meter on me. Cool.

    I'm not sure that I really see the need for the Lumu proposal---if I have to remember the plug-in sensor, I might as well have to remember a regular light meter---but it certainly doesn't hurt me any. I don't see what y'all are so upset about. You'd rather people *not* have another option for metering? Or is it just about scoring points by showing off your anti-technological principles?

    The lady of the house has to be a pretty swell sort of person to put up with the annoyance of a photographer.

    If it's getting funded it must be enough demand for what they are doing?

    I like my L208 meter too. It's small light and simple. If I forget it I can guess close enough, but prefer to have a working meter.

    Using a smartphone though isn't just to be nerdy and cool. It's possible to do new things, like log your meter readings time and settings, perhaps take a digital snap to correlate your meter readings with the place, or geotag your readings.

    Look up Sun Surveyor Pro, I find it essential to landscape work. It's crazy useful.

    I use my Pentax. It doesn't report my exposure info to the NSA.

    I'm not against technology, but I value usability--and that's where a lot of apps fail for photography. My most useful app for photography? Mapping and GPS--use it everyday. Internet searching in the field?--Invaluable. The light meter app I have is a pain to use compared to real light meter.

    I don't have an iphone, never intend to get one and don't need a hipster.

    What is this iPhone of which you speak?

    I carry my Pentax on my hip (with a belt) - does that also make me a hipster ?
