Quite sensitive and cheap. – LodeStar Premium Digital Light Meter (20000 Lux) Reviews

posted by isotco on 05/26/2008 Certified Owner

Involvement:General (knows how to use it) - Ownership:1 week to 1 month

Pros:
Quite sensitive, can measure 0-20lux in the lowest setting making it very good for lowlight applications.
Has a hold function that is very good to have in very dark conditions.
Probe has a tripod mount.
Cons:
Can't measure very bright things, like the sunshine a sunny day.
The cord for the probe is a little bit short.
Doesn't have backlight, making it hard to see the readout under very dark conditions.
Other:
The higher measuring ranges can be used for measuring light output from led flashlights from a meter away.
Perfect for building a lightbox.
Bottomline:
Good build, sensitive and cheap.
