How cool is this… Lumu Labs have just unveiled their newest product and man it’s super handy!
Lumu Power is a compact, easy to use yet powerful light meter add-on which turns your smartphone into an even more useful photographic tool. The domed dongle is capable of measuring color temperature, white balance and flash and ambient exposure and illuminance. Basically you just have to dial in the right settings on your camera depending on the lighting conditions.
Oh and there’s also a filters mode in the app that lets you calculate the color differences between multiple light sources, giving you the correct filter you will need to make the lights match.
For flash photography it can measure flash exposure and the flash versus ambient light ratio. It also helps you adjust the ratio and auto-compensate with shutter speed, and vice versa.
Housed inside its small stainless steel casing is a True Color sensor-based on the color standard CIE 1931/DIN 5033 as well as a fast response Photodiode with CIE spectral luminous efficiency. And because Lumu Power connects via a Lightning connector, it’s iOS-only and will work with an iPhone, iPod Touch, or iPad. Loving it yet?!
We’re thinking Lumu Power will make traditional light meters obsolete, it’s a total light meter for the future! This is definitely the perfect solution for any on-the-go photographer.
