Light Meter Tools is an application for photographers to measure reflected and ambient light using their Android cell phones, developed by a photographer with too much equipment to carry around. It uses two different methods to measure light: the light sensor and the phone’s camera.
Because of this dual feature, either one or the other should work on almost every phone on the market. On the first launch, it tests both methods and lets the user know which methods are available on their particular phone.
The app was developed for all camera types, and includes iso, f-stop, and shutter settings for anything from pinhole to video camera use. The app, however, is (D)SLR-centric, with most of the features focused on that market. Developed with the user in mind, the app was completely rewritten for speed and accessibility and can be used in both portrait and landscape modes.
In addition to the two meters, the app includes a Sunny Sixteen calculator with more tools in the works.
A big thanks to Double-J Design for the beautiful icons.
