The Lumu Power is a highly potent yet compact light meter accessory that turns your smartphone into an even more advanced photographic tool than it already is. This high-tech device is more than capable of measuring color temperature, white balance and flash levels, which will allow photographers to ensure that their settings are appropriate given the prevailing light conditions.

This device is currently the subject of a Kickstarter crowdfunding campaign. A pledge of $199 will enable you to land one of these high-tech gizmos if and when the campaign meets its fundraising goal.

The Lumu Power showcases a wide variety of possible uses. In addition to its obvious utility to photographers, this gadget could also be used by designers to measure the color content of light sources, or architects to assess the degree of light available in different parts of a built or planned structure.
