Luxi ESDHW905 reviews

Light Meter for iPhone 5/5s/SE is rated 3.8 out of 5 by 10.
Rated 5 out of 5 by from Surprising Exceptionally accurate compared to spot metering an 18% grey card. The official app isn't perfect and the developer actually recommended Pocket Light Meter which allows any two of shutter, aperture or ISO to be locked. It also allows logging and uploading to Dropbox which makes for this device an excellent location scouting tool. The only two downsides is in low light there's a point where the display's screen affects the reading and that it cant be clipped on without removing the case. It should also be noted that it isn't useful for flash photography.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Simple and nice little device I had a spare iPhone 5s from a recent upgrade with my phone contract so I decided to put it to use. The Luxi works great with the Cine Meter 2 app. The readings are spot on when I compared it with a Sekonic LiteMaster PRO which cost around $. The Luxi and iOS app set me back about $ so it was a very good deal... I already have the iPhone. I used this setup as a dedicated light meter plus other cine tool apps. If you don't have an iPhone then I think you should consider a dedicated light meter as it can be cheaper.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from surprisingly good I thought I would give this a shot, it was right on with my sekonic.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Surprisingly Accurate I bought this only as an emergency backup for when I don't have a true light meter on me. I was surprised that it's actually fairly accurate at measuring ambient levels. Feels somewhat flimsy and I have to take off my case to fit it on my phone. I kind of regret not buying the 'universal' version that looked like it could slip over a phone case..

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Works fine. Could of come in a smaller box. Works fine, and fits my iPhone 5s very well. Shipping was super quick even though I live in Australia. Arrived in less then a week. Would of given the product 5 stars if not for the fact that it came in a huge box and the actual product was only 2 inches long, if that. Please think of the environment before packaging your equipment. In any case, thanks again for the service.

Rated 2 out of 5 by from Not really worth it Quick light meter when you don't have a real meter.

Rated 1 out of 5 by from junk I just got mine in the mail. What a cheap piece of junk. I can see it will be easily broken. If the price was under $5, it wouldn't be so bad because that's all it's worth. You're better off cutting a ping-pong ball in half and making your own. There's nothing magic about this device to make it any better than that.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Compact and works accurately! good value Works great with the iphone lightmeter app for incident lighting. It doesn't fit over my phone case which makes it less convenient, but the attachment itself is small so its easy to carry. Great for those of us who can't afford a digital light meter, this will work great in the meantime.
