A light meter is only as good as it is accurate. I'm happy to say that this Lumu Power light/color meter is very accurate. I have a Sekonic L758DR light meter and I took simultaneous readings both with that and with this Lumu Power on my iPhone 7. I changed the settings on the Lumu Power to display exposure in full stops plus 1/10ths, which is what my Sekonic displays. The Lumu was always over the Sekonic reading, typically 2-3 tenths of a stop. The biggest discrepancy was one reading where the Lumu was over 4 tenths of a stop. I tried changing the calibration settings of the Lumu to +0.2 EV, and then the Lumu readings matched the Sekonic much more closely.If you're really super serious about accuracy, you should perform a calibration for your light meter with each camera sensor, using a controlled light source with an 18% grey card, taking exposures with the camera and dialing it in until you get a 50% luminance reading on the image of the grey card. Every light meter should be calibrated for best results, including the Lumu Power. If you just want ""meh, I'm sure it's close enough"" accuracy, then this Lumu Power will give you good results out of the box.The Lumu Power can be plugged in two ways - with the dome side facing forwards or with the flat side facing forwards. The dome side is used by the Lumu app for the PHOTO AMBIENT, PHOTO FLASH and CINE/VIDEO modes to measure the amount of light falling on the dome. The flat side is used for ILLUMINANCE, COLOR TEMPERATURE, and CHROMATICITY modes. The app will take readings regardless of which side is facing forwards - so if you're getting unexpected readings, make sure you've got the correct side facing forwards.There's very little documentation included in the packing, but the Lumu website has lots of info and an in-depth instruction manual PDF.The best thing about this Lumu Power, in my opinion, is that is has a color temperature meter in addition to being a light meter. My Sekonic doesn't have that. Sekonic color meters are very expensive ($1500+). Even ""off-brand"" color meters can run almost $1000. So, to have that capability in such a tiny phone accessory is pretty amazing. I don't have a color meter to compare the Lumu Power with, but I've taken readings in several different situations for video shoots (daylight, shade, tungsten, fluorescent), and it always seems to give the reading you'd expect, so I trust it to give me a reading that gives me a good in-camera image. Keep in mind that the color meter takes a reading only from the flat side of the meter. I've forgotten a couple of times and taken a reading from the dome side when really it was reading the back (flat) side.Because this is an iPhone accessory with a dedicated app, firmware updates are easy. In fact, just today as I write this review there was a firmware update to improve accuracy of the color meter. It only took a few seconds to update (and it was optional, so you won't be stuck doing updates in the middle of a photo shoot when time is of the essence). When I first started using this light meter, I had occasional difficulties getting the Lumu app to recognize the meter, but firmware/software updates have since fixed that and now the app pairs perfectly every time I plug the light meter in.The only downside I can see of the Lumu Power is that it's only good for as long as Apple keeps the Lightning port on its iPhones. As of the date of this review there are rumors that Apple might switch to the USB-C standard for its next iPhones, so if that does happen and you wanted to upgrade your phone then you wouldn't be able to use this light meter (without some sort of adapter that Apple will inevitably release).One minor thing I'm not crazy about is the included case. It's a small fake-leather pouch with a snap button that just barely fits the light meter. It doesn't offer a whole lot of protection. I use a small plastic hard case (in addition to the included pouch) to keep the Lumu Power protected in my camera bag.The fact that the Lumu Power has a light meter, flash meter, and color temperature meter in a tiny device that plugs into your phone is truly amazing to me and I think it's a very valuable piece of equipment for any serious photographer/videographer. I'm using this professionally and it is serving me very well.

Not color accurate.

Finding that the color temperatures really don't match all that well. The exposure readouts are pretty darn good. If you look online at other reviews you'll notice the same reports.

Inconsistent results made this less than ideal. Great concept though and better than hauling around a full size meter

Its a great concept but the one flaw is that it will not work color temperature from strobe.

A bit pricey, but it does a great job of helping me dial in the correct exposure for flash photography. My only wish (and perhaps this is a wish for iOS versus Lumalabs's software) is that you could specify that your iPhone ""remember"" your choice to trust and allow the device to access your iPhone's Lightning port. The typography and design of the app are nice. I'm so happy that Lumulabs didn't resort to using the dorky LCD font that says, ""I'm an LCD display"" (looking at you, auto manufacturers).

Lack of meaningful instructions kills the experience

On the surface, the idea is pretty genius: create a light meter attachment for an iPhone and save space (if not necessarily money). And in practice, it more or less meets this goal if you can figure out how to use it. Prior experience with light meters certainly helps, but I'm not sure why someone would buy and learn this attachment if they already have a dedicated light meter. So if the intended audience (I assume) is those without a dedicated light meter, even the most basic instructions would be welcome. This has none. Once you open the box, you're left to fend for yourself. Downloading the app does help, but even then it's not exactly a user-friendly process. From the start, you're greeted with a minimalist interface and icons/readouts that don't exactly make sense if you don't already have some sort of experience to connect with. The functionality all seems to be there, but I'm to the point that I'd rather reach for my Sekonic than use this because I don't have to reinvent the wheel each time. A better set of tutorials in the app, including just a explanation of the basics of a light meter, would go a long way to improving the user experience. Otherwise, keep using (or purchase) a dedicated light meter and save your phone's battery.

A great tool, a bit of a learning curve for a novice

This definitely works well and easily once you understand it. I found it a little frustrating to figure out and leaned heavily on video tutorials. The controls are quite intuitive, again, once you get it - and someone with more photography experience would definitely have less trouble than I did.It's compact and easy to tuck in a camera or carryall bag. It's very useful for a quick reading of light and color temp. It takes up less space in my bag than other light meters and seems just as reliable and accurate as the pro versions. I love it, even though I am not a regular light meter user yet. Now that I'm using it, I'm loving it.Overall? This is a great piece of equipment. So many cameras have great, built in meters these days that you don't necessarily need a light meter often as a non-pro. This is so compact that it fits in your bag so you actually have it on hand when you need it!

I am not a professional photographer these days - I was way back in the days of film and non-digital cameras - so I was a little tentative about getting and using this product, especially since I'd have to dust off my photography skills. This is a tiny little meter, easy to fit in your case, no matter how much you already have packed in there (I wasn't expecting it to be so small but it makes sense, considering it's supposed to be attached to an iPhone). It does not come with instructions so it takes a bit to figure it all out. Still it's pretty darned cool and I like that it runs through an app with instant feedback to improve your photos.
