This review is from: Leaton Digital Luxmeter / Digital Illuminance Light Meter lux meter with LCD Display(Range: 0.1~200,000 Lux Luxmeter, 0.01~20,000Fc) (Misc.) I was extremely surprised by the ease of use and accuracy of this Light meter. I use it for my orchids both at home and at the college where I teach.

Well packaged.With this simple tool I was able to determine that I needed to change the lighting conditions for some of my plants. Great for the hobbyist!

    Good for the price, seems accurate enough

    I have no way to calibrate or validate this device, but it seems relatively accurate. When compared to the lux meter on my phone, the numbers are relatively close (same order of magnitude at least) and I'd trust this device over a phone lux meter.I do wish that the little panel that covers up the dome was somehow connected to the meter, through a piece of rubber or something, or that the cover slid down the back. Something that kept it with the device, so that you didn't have to carry around/keep track of it while using the meter.It is pretty amazing to compare light levels in different environments. Since humans see light more or less logarithmically, we don't notice nearly the same discrepancy in light intensity. A regular room may be 100 lux, shade outside may be 25000 lux.In any case, for the price, it's a good little lux meter. It's a bit of a novelty, useful for checking if your plants are getting enough light, using it as a photography light... 4/5 C. Ervin - See all my reviews, October 7, 2016

    This meter is very easy to use and seems reliable

    5/5 Kerri S (San Diego, CA United States) - See all my reviews Verified Purchase(What's this?) This review is from: Leaton Digital Luxmeter / Digital Illuminance Light Meter lux meter with LCD Display(Range: 0.1~200,000 Lux Luxmeter, 0.01~20,000Fc) (Misc.) This meter is very easy to use and seems reliable. You have to be careful that the white meter sensor is facing directly up if you are attempting to get light measurements from above. We ordered several of these to use in an Ecology course, and our students didn't have any trouble. One of the units came with a malfunctioning screen, but the seller Leaton Direct was extremely prompt and helpful in swapping it out for a new one.

    Inexpensive photometer

    4/5 Roger the Consultant (San Diego) - See all my reviews Verified Purchase(What's this?) This review is from: Extech LT300 Light Meter (Tools & Home Improvement) Inexpensive light meter that is worth the price. Only issues are 1 - readings drift up in value over a few minutes and 2 - no calibration certificate of any sort. A NIST certificate would be pretty pricy, however some sort indication of calibration would be nice. I compared this unit for stability under indoor lighting next to my International Light photometer. The Extech drifted significantly more than the other meter. Then again it costs a fraction as much and is portable. Help other customers find the most helpful reviews  Was this review helpful to you? , December 9, 2013

This review is from: Dr.Meter LX1010B 100,000 Light Meter with LCD Display (Electronics) I'm an electrician, not a lighting or electrical engineer. I have a small greenhouse and am hoping to have a successful tomato crop started early. I attempted to find out on line all I could about candlepower, lumens, lux, etc. I got a glimmer of what they were trying to tell me. this Luxmeter, helped me to figure out what I wanted to know.Very inexpensive for a complicated device. I'll know much better when the tomatos come in. Help other customers find the most helpful reviews  Was this review helpful to you? , April 12, 2013

    A bargain at the price and works quite well!

    I received this product and am very happy with it! I got it on sale and, for the price, I find it a bargain. First, did I need a light meter? Nah! But the price was darn good and the reviews were positive, so I decided to order it figuring I could find uses for it, including checking light levels throughout my office and my home, plus comparing light output of different bulbs. this unit takes a 9 volt battery (comes with a cheap battery, so I installed my own alkaline). The unit comes in a nice case which is very protective, and the unit fits very nicely inside. I will admit that the unit feels a bit low-tech, however, it seems to work well and is relatively sensitive, although I have nothing to compare the readings. But, when I turn the unit away from the light source, it reacts immediately. I don't understand people who say that the directions aren't clear and they didn't understand that you needed to remove the red plastic cap from the sensor. It is hard for me to... 5/5 Bill (New Jersey) - See all my reviews Verified Purchase(What's this?)

    Instantly familiar and comfortable to use. Make settings by touching icons or sliding a finger on the screen. The large color LCD displays ambient, flash, cine and other information in a clear and understandable way.
    Brightness measurement in Lux or FC and Cd/m2 or FL will make the L-478 a major player on movie sets around the world. Display brightness along with exposure measurements or simply by itself.
    The L-478-Series meters are especially useful when using flash to lighten shadows or reduce background detail. That's because they measure ambient and flash simultaneously and automatically indicate the percentage of flash in the total exposure.
    Special effects and light sources can push standard camera settings to their limits That's why the L-478 also allows creating unique frame rates and shutter angles to .000 to enable precise exposure and lighting.
    The L-478-series has two motion- capture modes to fit camera in use. Touch to set shutter speeds for HD SLR cameras or quickly select frame rates and shutter angles for Cine.

    Right up there with a Sekonic!

    5/5 Brent Duncan - See all my reviews Verified Purchase(What's this?) This review is from: Luxi For All - Smartphone Light Meter Attachment (Electronics) First off you should know I'm a professional cinematographer. I own a Sekonic L-758 Cine meter and have relied on it for years. When I read a review of the Cine Meter 2 being used with a Luxi, I had to see for myself how good it really was. And I was blown away. This little Luxi, in combination with the CM2, gives me just as accurate and, in a few cases more accurate, readings than my Sekonic! I've used it on everything from short films to features, commercials and web videos. All my shots have turned out beautiful. I highly recommend it.

    Tiny meter ball delivers for the price

    5/5 bluefish123 - See all my reviews Verified Purchase(What's this?) This review is from: Luxi For All - Smartphone Light Meter Attachment (Electronics) A great product in that it seems to work with all phones and with Adam Wilt's Cine Meter II app, which just added a color temperature feature. The Luxi comes with a small pull-string bag and is ok build quality, but it does slide around a bit on my iPhone 4s, so you need to check to see that it's properly centered before relying on the reading. It's also so small that I've misplaced it a few times, but that would be an issue with any incident ball. Overall very happy with it. And considering that color temp meters cost $1000+, this plus a $25 app is a huge bargain! Help other customers find the most helpful reviews  Was this review helpful to you? , June 3, 2015

    Small, accurate, and easy to use, Buy this meter and you won't be disappointed.

    5/5 Fantasyman - See all my reviews Enthusiast: Photography Verified Purchase(What's this?) This review is from: New Sekonic L-308S-U Flashmate Lightmeter And Exclusive 3-Year Warranty (Electronics) Small, accurate, and easy to use. Tested this with both on-camera as well as off-camera flash, results were excellent, repeatable, and, therefore reliable. Tested the reflective light metering and itmatches my camera's on-board metering exactly.A word on the output from this meter:If you select the output option to f-stops, display will be whole f-number plus tenths of a stop. This means that if your meter shows f=16.8, your exposure setting should be f=16 + 8-tenths of a stop, which is actually closer to f:22 than f:16. You will need to keep this in mind as only whole f-stops are shown: eg, f:2.8, f:4, f:5.6, f:8, f:11, and so on. Optionally, you can set exposure value to read EV numbers directly, and make the conversions yourself.Pros:Small form factorRuns on a single AA batteryAuto shut-offMeters flash, incident and reflective lightTests out well, with reliable, predictable resultsCons:None so far.
