Well, here it is... my light meter app for google glass in action. Glass has this cool feature of "make vignette" that will take a picture and embed the glass display onto the image to show what it feels like to have the app running. Anyway, I was able to take several sample app codes and created my light meter app. Through the menus, I can select the ISO and aperture setting I want, then the app will use the glass light sensor reading to calculate the estimated shutter speed for the scene. I say "estimated", because I'm not quite sure that it is accurate yet. Comparing to the readings I get from the light meter app on my phone, sometimes it's spot on, sometimes it's a stop of half off. I think it'll take more testing and experimenting to tweak it further, but I guess it's all just estimates anyway and as long as it's not way off, I can already correct the image in post. Can't wait to test it out in the field and shoot a roll with its guidance!
My Journey into Leica...
A path not to be taken lightly, not without reservations, and not without dedication, but the results can be sweet, OH SO SWEET! This is a documentation of my trials and tribulations into the world of Leica Rangefinder Photography, and I hope you'll enjoy coming along with me.
