Cine Meter is a professional film/video/photo application for your iPhone®, iPad®, or iPod touch®, using the built-in camera to provide a shutter-priority reflected light meter, an RGB waveform monitor, and a false-color picture mode. Cine Meter works on any camera-equipped iDevice running iOS 5.1 or higher.

See the light: Cine Meter not only gives you exposure information, it shows you at a glance how evenly your greenscreen is lit, and where high-contrast hotspots and shadows may give you trouble. With Cine Meter, you can walk around, light your set, and solve problems long before your real camera is set up, making pictures, and running down its batteries.

Cine Meter runs entirely on your iDevice: it doesn’t use WiFi or mobile data. No ads, no in-app purchases, no tracking. If you have power in the battery and light in front of the lens, it will work.

Cine Meter is available now on the App Store.

(If you’re on an iPad running iOS 6 or newer, select the “iPhone Apps” tab in the App Store. Otherwise, Cine Meter won’t show up.)
