    Are there any apps in the app store that work as a light meter? I have an old film camera that doesn't have a light meter, and it would be awesome if there were an app that I could put in an ISO and shutter speed and it gave me an aperture to get correct exposure.

    One app I found was Exposure Calc, but I didn't know if it was any good and didn't want to spend the money if it didn't even work. Anyone use it? Anyone know of a better app for what I want to do?

    I know this was an older thread, but it may still be interesting for someone.

    If you own an iPhone 3G-S, there is an App in the AppStore now. It's simply called LightMeter (from the developers of PhotoBuddy) and was released just recently.

    I don't get why it is only going to work with the iPhone 3GS, but I would question how accurate it can be. I'd love to try it but I am not using a 3GS.

    Someone posted a review that they use it and they're a camera repair tech. I question if it really is that good.

    it only works for the 3gs because of how the new camera works, and its ability to be used as a video camera too.
