Lumu Power

Lumu Labs a Slovenia-based Kickstarter launched the Lumu, a headphone jack attachment that turns the iPhone into an accurate light meter for photographers.

Back in 2013, raised over $244,000 on Kickstarter. Now the company is back again with the Lumu Power, a next-generation attachment to your iPhone that doesn’t just meter light — it can measure and calculate flash and color temperature as well.

Quickly measure the color temperature in Kelvins. The White Balance mode in the new app can show you the measured temperature value and the value of Tint compensation you’ll need to achieve a perfect white in your resulting photos.

For flash photography, the Lumu Power can measure flash exposure and the flash versus ambient light ratio.

The retail price once the Lumu Power hits market is expected to be $299.

 

Camera Tethering in Adobe Photoshop Lightroom

Seen those high-gear fashion photography studio setups?
Well, that what Camera tethering is all about, digital cameras hooked up to a fancy screen with necessary on-store photography tools.

Some in this we are basically setting up camera tethering with Lightroom at minimum costs.

Benefits of Tethering:
– The most important advantage is the ability to see your images on screen. Instead of being confined to the camera’s tiny LCD, the images will come from your camera and through to Lightroom nearly instantly.

– You’ll also be able to apply image processing and add metadata to the files quickly, as they are made. Depending on your style of working, you’ll often be able to flag, star, keyword and pick your keepers as you photograph, saving you from the time-consuming reviewing stage in post-production.

– Tethering the camera to your computer sends your image files directly to the hard drive, without the eject-and-transfer dance of memory cards. If you have a camera with a high megapixel count (or small memory cards) this means not having to worry if your card is running out of space.

Getting Tethered:
1) Connect your digital camera to your computer using a USB which is provided.
2) Open Adobe Lightroom ( tried on 5.7).
3) File > Tethered Capture > Start Tethered Capture.

4) Set the required attributes.

5) Now a control bar will pop up, where you’ll be able to conduct your tethered session. The right most button will now act as the shutter button.
