    Very sensitive

    5/5 Francis L. - See all my reviews Verified Purchase(What's this?) This review is from: Holdpeak Digital Luxmeter / Digital Illuminance Light Meter lux meter with LCD Display(Range: 0.1~50,000 Lux Luxmeter) (Electronics) I just received it in the mail and was anxious to test it out. I will be using it mainly for film photography. It's still early days but overall I am impressed by the accuracy and sensitivity of the meter. I've found that I get the best reading when I use the X10 scale which gives me a bettter average reading which I can use to convert to an EV and then check my chart for the correct exposure. I've verified the exposures on my digital camera in manual mode. Help other customers find the most helpful reviews  Was this review helpful to you? , November 19, 2016

(CE,ISO,ROHS,GMC) (Electronics) This thing is great for the price. Nice build quality, and it works well, it's easy to read and easy to use. There's no way for me to reference the absolute value of the Lumen or Footcandle readings, but the relative readings seem correct. I did a little experiment - I measured 7 GE incandescent bulbs, a 15w, 25w, 40w, 60w, 75w, 100w, and 200w...and the Lumen readings for each bulb were linearly proportional, just like you'd expect.

(CE,ISO,ROHS,GMC) (Electronics) Works. I don't know how accurate, but it lets you compare numbers and see deterioration. Problem is, for growers, the numbers don't drop so fast to help. A hps can be obviously older, less color to the naked eye, and less yield, but the lux's on this meter might change by 20 or so by the time this happens. Obviously, this doesn't read par, but I was hoping...If you need to see that the light is literally dimmer, then this is your device.

    A handy and accurate lux meter - very useful range

    This lux meter is terrific. I am using it to check light levels because I'm am ridiculously light sensitive (it's a medical condition). It is wonderful to be able to measure the full range of light from dim light bulb to full sunlight. The meter is accurate for the full range although it conks out at the highest level of sunlight (full noon sun - clear California sky). For the average person (me), it doesn't matter. But the meter helps me figure out when I need curtains full time as the light changes throughout the year.I also collect houseplants and it is terrific to check the light levels and place the plants accordingly. The meter is very sensitive, if I need 10 more lux of light then by golly it will find the spot.To obtain a stable reading, you need to set the meter down on something solid. This can affect the reading because there is a difference in lux between table height and floor height when the light is dim.I haven't done it but if you... 5/5 Lindy (Bay Area, CA) - See all my reviews Verified Purchase(What's this?)

    Not too shabby fore amateur/casual use

    Long story short: Overall, if you just want something inexpensive to compare light levels around the home or from one place to another, this is a perfectly reasonable, and reasonably priced, meter.As others have mentioned, this meter is really only good for comparison and not absolute measurements unless you've calibrated it yourself... and if you have access to the necessary equipment you probably wouldn't be buying such a cheap device! That said, it takes repeatable measurements and displays up to "1999" which needs to be interpreted based on the manual range switch.This device uses physical switches for power and range, which is nice because it completely disconnects the battery when off. A lot of devices have a "soft" power function which means they will gradually drain the battery even if not used. When on, the power used is 2mA or less, so the cheap zinc-carbon 9v battery it comes will will still last for 200+ hours of use... 4/5 Matthew Purgar - See all my reviews Verified Purchase(What's this?)
