I’ve just ordered a cheapo lux meter – linked and whilst I hope I haven’t bought a lemon I’m just wondering if there are any tips on using these.
I have a shed that I can set up the meter semi permenantly (attach to a wall) and then have another point where I can place multiple lights to test. Should you test at just 1m or are there any other suggestions? I could set up a re-usable test location for up to 5m in the shed but I’m wondering if I need to go further or is that pointless?
What about ceiling bounces? Are these useful to anyone? My shed would be a bad location for this due to it being a pitched roof.
I mainly bought it as a toy to play with and hopefully I can compare a few lights that I own against each other. I dont expect it to be accurate nor do I think I could be bothered to set up something to measure lumens.
If the lux meter I’ve bought is rubbish let me know as it’s on back order at the moment so I could cancel it.
