Version 8.2 (Jun 02, 2012)

* The old interface is now available optionally from the settings.
* Red focus square is now optional when logging
* Lux conversion is removed

Please, note, it is impossible to measure illuminance (Lux) using a camera, do not trust anyone who says otherwise. A special device must be used for this type of reading. We, therefore, remove any reference to 'lux' and 'foot-candle' from our application to avoid confusion. If you used this application to measure your illuminance levels in the past, most likely you were miles away from the real number, and you must repeat your measurements using a specialised device. Don't trust anyone, an iPhone cannot replace a lux meter for industrial applications.

This application, however, is a brilliant reflected light meter for photography.
