Re: [visionlist] Low cost photometer/colorimeterPosted: March 23, 2017
A question & a comment:
It would be really useful to know whether you (or someone) has Matlab software to read the Spyder. If it’s custom-written (and doesn’t come with the device) it might be possible to make such software freely available via the Mathworks ‘user-contributed’
website, or via the Psychtoolbox.
Comment: since luminance is invariant with distance, it shouldn’t matter in principle what distance the meter is at.

yes, I have got a Spyder 4.
We use it as a photometer under Linux (Ubuntu).
In contrast to our Minolta L 110 photometer, this was much much much less expensive, of course.
The results are more stable than for the Minolta (since the are used for the measurement is shielded).
In contrast, measuring with the Minolta gives more variable responses depending on the exact angle
which with you shot. However, using the Minolta, you measure the luminance felt from the exact distance
of the subject. This is the most significant difference.
