Assignment 5 – Sensor Array

As a filmmaker who is interested in learning more and more about technical filmmaking, I think the most useful sensor would be a light sensor. I found the Ambient Light Sensor on SparkFun and think it could be harnessed to create a very low budget light meter for beginning filmmakers. Light meters exist inside cameras as well as on phone apps, but there is a difference when having an actual separate device for measuring color temperatures and light sensitivity. This would be a good, cheap tool that can help filmmakers work quickly and understand the concept of lighting more clearly.
