The Reveni Labs Light Meter launched on Kickstarter on Saturday evening, and within the day beat its ~£9.5k goal! As you can see above, the light meter itself is designed to be absolutely tiny, and slot into the hot/cold shoe of your camera.
Despite its tiny size – at 22.5 x 21.8 x 17.8 mm, and weighing 8g – it has a bright OLED screen, a simple control and menu system, aperture or shutter priority modes, an ISO range from 1 – 12800, an aperture range from f0.7 – f128 and a shutter speed range from 8min to 1/8000s, and is all powered off a single LR44 battery.
Matt Bechberger the founder of burgeoning company Reveni Labs says in the Kickstarter
“The light meter I created uses modern technology to add metering onto any camera. the housing is made from a high quality 3D printed nylon using Multi Jet Fusion technology
“Readings are shown on a bright and crisp OLED display. At less than an inch in all dimensions and weighing only 8 grams, it makes the perfect companion to any camera kit. The bottom of the meter features a flash shoe mount, making it easy to mount on hundreds of cameras.”
Despite already owning a Voigtlander VCII meter, I backed this project within the first couple of hours of it launching – I love seeing this sort of innovation in our industry, and am always happy to support it.
