Illuminati is a triangle that measures light and color and transmits them to a smartphone. We stopped by the Illuminati booth at Photo Plus Expo 2017, and had a chat with the founder – Mike Okincha. According to Mike, Illuminati will be shipped to backer in a week or so, and available in stores for the holidays with a price tag of $299.

Illuminati takes constant readings while it’s on and display them on an iPhone or Android app. It’s about as big as a kid’s fist and it has a nice set of features: it measures ambient lights (either direct or reflected), will measure strobes including HSS, and do some color measurements.

There’s is a variety of mounting options, including a tripod socket, a magnet, and lanyard.

Colorwise the meter will help you adjust any set of lights. You punch in the different gels that you have, the desired color temp, and the app will instruct you which gels should go on the light to match hour desired temperature and cast.

If you are looking at the phone-connected light meters there is a non-wireless option called Lumu in the same price range, which is already shipping, but it is iDevice only and is not wireless. We will be pitching both meters against each other as soon as Illuminati lands in our hands.

    “available in stores for the holidays with a price tag of $299.” – For that kind of money, why would anyone want this over a properly engineered Sekonic ????

    Just buy an old Gossen Luna Pro or Weston Master light meter. A lot cheaper than this useless item.

    Needs Windows support too (ideally a W10 UWP) – I can see using something similar with a tethered dSLR.

    Plus, being a hardware colorimeter, i’d assume it wouldn’t be too difficult to get it to create ICC profiles for monitor calibrating?

    Plus, it would give me more confidence that I wouldn’t lose access to the device should a newer version of Android be no longer supported.

    Wireless light-meter, colorimeter and monitor profiler w/ windows support? I’d pay €299.

    Android only? not a chance.
