      Has anyone come across a good light meter app you can use on your Android cell phone to properly light a room for filming?

      Also, any compass app with details of say 43 degrees NNW not just NSEW?

      Thank you!

      I went to a camera shop to buy a light meter, but oddly enough the store clerk suggested I try this app before she ding all that money. Caught off guard by the storeman’s honesty, I decided to try it out. However, I have nothing to compare it to. Can anyone else (who owns a light meter and a newish a druid phone) please do a few comparison tests and figure out the truth for me?

      I love the link to an assignment writing cheating service with testimonials like:

      Being an outgoing student, I cannot sit for long hours to complete assignments or projects. Preparing for tests and quizzes is another story altogether. It is due to services such as these that students like me can have a life other than just an academic one.

      Cheating at school, college and university sucks badly and I really hope these cheaters got caught out and fail!

      As for the apps – surely the issue here is that the only measurement they can make is for brightness, as in what they use to set the exposure on the camera. Most proper light meters have a number of modes that involve white domes or screens that prevent collimation. Camera lenses do the opposite and collect light from specific angles and converge it. With multiple light paths, the results would be much as the data collected suggests – flawed.
