For the strobist photographers amongst us, the Lumu Power is looking to turn you iPhone not only into an incident light meter, but also one that judges flash output. It was only a matter of time before someone did it, but Lumu was bound to get to it first.
Lumu Power is a light, exposure, flash and color temperature meter designed to plug into and work with your iPhone. Sorry Android folks, it doesn’t look like you’re getting any love here.
It is the first light meter which combines everything into one device. If it receives full funding on KickStarter, it’s bound to become a reality.
What that essentially means is that you no longer need to lug around an actual flash light meter unless you want to have the special integration that Sekonic has with PocketWizard technology. It also means that photographers with older film cameras without light meters built in won’t need to bring a meter around, instead they can just use this along with their iPhone.
Really cool, huh?
