A Light Panel In Your Pocket

Pixelexip LightSource App

lifesource Here's a truly novel idea for the photographers and cinematographers of the world -- LightSource turns your iPhone or iPod Touch into a convenient, customizable light panel. Perfect for still-life and low light photo shoots. Throw accent or fill light wherever you want, or hold your phone above your lens to produce an attractive catch light in your subject's eyes. LightSource is also an ideal tool for long exposure light painting. Choose from a wide array of common (and not so common) light sources to adjust the light panel's color. The colors available in LightSource are from among the most common lighting types and temperatures in the real world.

Light Temperatures/Types include:
* Sunlight
* Candle
* 40W Tungsten Bulb
* 100W Tungsten Bulb
* Sodium Vapor
* Halogen
* Fluorescent Black Light
* And many more


While there are many flashlight applications on the iPhone and iPod Touch, LightSource is the first to be specifically geared towards and developed for photographers and cinematographers. However, LightSource's uses are countless, and extend beyond the photographic realm; it also makes for a convenient flashlight, or wherever you need a bright swatch of color. LightSource's clean, intuitive interface gets the light shining in the color you desire with only a single touch.

System Requirements: Compatible with iPhone and iPod touch Requires iPhone 2.1 Software Update

Pricing and Availability: LightSource costs $0.99 (USD).

Unfortunately it is NOT a light meter. Now, that would be a truly innovative invention -- a light meter to measure how much light you've got to work with, and what kind of light it is.
