    This software was created to help you to configure the approximate value for the Light Value (LV), Exposure Value (EV), shutter speed, ISO and aperture.

    In photography, exposure value (EV) denotes all combinations of a camera's shutter speed and relative aperture that give the same exposure.

    How to use it
    With your touch or keypad down/up, you move de ruler.
    Establish the brightness (EV) of your subject, using either your hand-held light meter or the descriptions on the calculator. (Note that the descriptions are only a guideline - if you're working from them you may wish to bracket your exposures.)
    Slide the sliding scale so that the ISO value of your film lines up with the appropriate EV value. Then you can read off aperture/shutter speed combinations from the lower pair of scales.
    This version of the calculator is reversible. Use the side with EVs 8-16 for bright conditions, and the 3-11 side for dim light.

    Accurate, if you know shutter speed progression, the lower portion isn't a problem, starts at 2000 and works down. Formula works for film as well as digital, it's what program mode works with. It's NOT a light meter, it's a general rule of thumb to get a good shot, not a perfect one. I've shot film for over 40 years, but not a pro, if you want pro results, invest in a good light meter and good glass. Thank you for a great app!
