Luxi Light Meter for iPhone 5


A few years ago no one would have thought that a digital camera would be capable of taking such incredible pictures, videos, and panoramas, but now you can use these and other features like smile detection and eliminating red eye to take great photos. There is one more thing that is important for making high-quality photographs—having the right exposure. For that, you need the help of a light meter. That’s where the new Luxi ($29.99) comes into play. It turns your iPhone 5 into a quality incident light meter. If you use your camera’s built in light meter, you are getting a reading for reflected light, which could be a false reading resulting in a photograph of under or overexposed poor quality.

MeCam: Cute or Creepy?


I just received an interesting package. It was a box in the shape of a cube. I had no idea what it was. It just said MeCam. I opened it up to reveal a round plastic object about two inches in diameter with a semicircle of small holes. What could it be?

It turned out to be MeCam ($49), a wearable mini camera that takes videos, records sound, and takes still shots. That’s pretty cool, I thought. You could really have some fun with it in parks and parties, walking down the street, riding a bike, and shopping at Walmart. It could revolutionize Facebook and Instagram.
