Turn your iOS device (with builtin iSight camera) into a exposure meter.
Using the built in camera you can take a picture of the scene you want to measure. LightMeter will calculate the exposure for that scene and display it.
Set-up you camera to the values displayed and you will take a photo with the perfect lighting.
Using the same exposure picker PhotoBuddy does you will feel right at home. The picker allows you to change the f-stop, shutter or iso values after you measured the scene without altering the exposure.
If you use filters for your shots, you need to take them into account when calculating the exposure. LightMeter let's you set the parameters of a filter to make sure you always get the right exposure.
Support for iOS 8

After purchasing app and opening it, a dialogue box, stating that it was not compatible with my iPhone,
popped up. Didn’t get refunded even though app is unusable...
Doesn't work anymore.
It isn't compatible with any iPhone made since the earth was flat.
This app can come in very handy for those of us who still shoot film. I personally shoot with a Hasselblad 500C, and as many of you may know this camera does not have a built in light meter. So long story short i was out shooting and my light meter ran out of battery, so (thinking to my self there is an app for everything) i pulled out my iphone and found this. I used it the rest of the day and When I got home (after I replaced the battery) i used my light meter to check how accurate this app is. I was amazed to see it was almost always within a half of a stop of my meter readings and nearly never more than a full stop off.
In conclusion this is a great app to have “just in case.” I would say the only thing i wish this app had, would have to be a spot meter.
With Family Sharing set up, up to six family members can use this app.
