Pretty intense

  • Compatible with iPhone 5/5S
  • Works with any light meter app that can use the front-facing camera and can be calibrated with an offset

Photography is an expensive hobby. There are tools and add-ons for everything; getting into photography ends up being a lot like apps with in-app purchases. "Wait. Need that. Crap. Need that, too."

The Luxi seeks to take something you already have and turn it into a tool serious photographers need: an incident light meter. "But, ThinkGeek, I can install a light meter app on my phone!" we hear you saying. Yes, but currently your phone only measures light from a very limited angle. The Luxi picks up 180° of incident light, plus you get to avoid adding another expensive tool to the bottom of your bag. With this diffusion dome, your iPhone becomes your light meter. That's pretty much win-win.

Product Specifications

  • Incident light meter attachment for iPhone (measures light falling on the subject, not light reflected by the subject for better photos)
  • Compatible with iPhone 5/5S
  • Diffusion dome fits over the front-facing camera
  • Works with any light meter app that can use the front-facing camera and can be calibrated with an offset, but has its own free app, also named Luxi
  • Allows you to capture light from a 180° angle, not just the angle your phone's camera is restricted to
  • Ideal for DSLR photographers who don't want to add another gadget to their bag
  • Accommodates most protective skins/screen protectors, but you'll have to remove your case to use it (since cases are so variable)
  • Does not work with flashes, because iPhone apps are unable to detect light coming from flashes due to iPhone hardware limitations
  • Materials: Plastic
  • Includes a microfiber bag and a phone strap
  • Dimensions: 1" x 2" x 1.3"
  • Weight: .2 oz.
