I got back from vacation and there was a ton of mail. And in that mail was a load of cool stuff that I want to share with you. I figured it would be good to put them all together for you.

I always like to get things in the post and it is extra cool when I come back from a trip, as there is always a ton of mail with all sorts of exciting things. I have a whole load of new books to share with you, but first things first. Here are some goodies that I rather like.

Lumu Lightmeter
_DSF5669
This is a fun little thing. A nifty little lightmeter that plugs into your phone and syncs with an app to give you a much more accurate meter. It was up on Kickstarter a few months back and it won all of the funding and then some. This is one of the sample units and I am going to be testing it out to see how things are with it.
At the moment these guys are still doing the pre-order, but the Lumu should be ready for sale.
I will have more information on the meter soon, with a review coming up once I have used it.
Check out their site for more information.

Gradeselect Goods

I always love getting stuff from Ray over at GradeSelect. The T-shirts are cool and the stickers cover everything I own. And this time round I got a cool beanie too.
You can check out the full lineup over at the site, which features a catalog that was shot on impossible film. I swear, I have a load of these T’s and I never get tired of wearing them.

Cub & Co

Joel over at Cub & Co works really hard to make these super cool straps. They have been constantly improved and now come in a cool selection of colours. I love the bandolier too, the Kodak film canisters fit perfectly inside. This is definitely going on my bag.
Check out more of Cub & Co’s gear over at the site.

That’s all for now. Do you have a fun photography product that you would like to share with the JCH crew? You can always drop me a line by clicking here.

Thanks
JCH

Can you please let us know how you fare with the Lumu. I received mine in their first shipment some time ago and benchmarked it against 2 separate lightmeters. The Lumu was way off every time. would love to know if it is just mine or more general
Thanks

    Hi Pim,
    if using iOS, update your Lumu app to the latest version. At one point, we had a bug in the code. All algorithms were fixed and also calibration menu added.
    Hovewer, if you want, you should write to support@lu.mu and ask about replacement…

    The problem was in software, not hardware. There was numerical offset in the code, but later fixed and can be now adjusted also in calibration menu. Response and accuracy should be flawless. ;)
