    I have a light meter app, and it's always spot on and agreed with my Sekonic in good light.
    It's good in case you ever lose battery power mid-roll.

    I was seriously considering trying his VC LED head, but asked him (offline) about the possibility of a non-smartphone interface. He was pretty adamant that if you wanted one of his heads, you were going to use his Bluetooth smartphone interface. He seemed a bit enamored over the novelty of writing software, I think.

    I lost that novelty decades ago, but he appeared more interested in the software angle than the light source angle. All my attempts (and everyone else's in that thread he started) to convince him to offer a non-smartphone interface went nowhere. So I never pursued it any further and so no sale was made.

I do not wish to impose my personality upon the sitter, but, keeping myself open to receive reactions from his own special ego, record this with nothing added: except of course when I am working professionally, when money enters in,—then for a price, I become a liar..."

    I have Fotometer Pro. The rear camera is used for reflected light. The front camera for incident light. Which makes sense, as it is the only way to see the meter while you are taking the readings.

    Yeah, I was part of that, too.

    I have an iPhone, use it and actually take pictures with it. But using it as a light meter or a timer seems more trouble than it's worth. YMMV
