      Got mine (Philippines). Been here since 29 August, but the post office where I live is less-than-efficient. Doing the slippage fix now, and will try it out tomorrow.

      Is it possible to track the Luxi package? It has been two weeks since the all-shipped update and I still haven't gotten mine. Any help would be appreciated.

    26. Han Chengwei on

      Got it today, works great. In the next few days i'll test it in the University of Pisa Light Lab.
      I'll wait to see the final app! Thanks from Italy!

      Hi, some news on international shipping? I have received nothing.... (italy)

    29. Richard Burt on

      Got it 3 days ago, works great. Thanks!

    30. Corey Machado on

      Hey I received mine but I ordered the iPhone 4 version. Anyway I can switch to the iPhone 5 version?????

    31. antimix on

      I got it today.

      - What about to write some documentation or post a video about the correct usage of the APP ?

      I tried it but I am not sure of all the functions, especially the calibration.

      Best Regards

    32. Chris Porter

      Received my Luxi. Pity it is the 4 version despite requesting a change several months ago to the 5....

      Brett Crockford on

      Still nothing .... And now my phone has moved on and if, and I mean if, the luxi ever appears, it will no longer fit the phone. I am sorry to have backed this idea/company.

      Got my little package today down here in Australia, it may have been here for a few days as I could not get to the post office. Downloaded the App and had a quick play and it seems to be very good. Thank you

      Just received mine yesterday in Canada....

      Do you think the iPhone 5 version will work for the new rumored 5S? I hope so but probably not since the specs and placement of the flash is different I think.

      Luxi in hand in France. w00t!

      Hi, good manufacturing quality for first trial, I am satisfied with the integrating half-sphere.

      The app has ADS in it? I suppose, there are no other people using this app apart from us, your friends, your kickstarter buddies, your soulmates!

      Please remove the ads.

      Improvement suggestions:
      1. when attaching Luxi to iPhone, it either covers my phone jack or the power button. This can be made better by clipping from top exclusively. Thicker materials will be needed.
      2. the app: I would like to read the absolute readings in large, nice numbers, similar to your Icon in the app-store.
      3. calibration: how do we calibrate? Please add calibration instructions. I have no exposimeter at home, any shortcuts?
      4. instructions how to attach Luxi to phones would be great, use SketchUp for instance.

    42. Jorge De Silva on

      I just received mine! :)
      The exposures are a little bit underexposed, but after some calibration it gives good results. (the iphone camera will always be the problem here)
      The app UI really sucks, hope to see a better version soon.
      I will do a review soon: Luxi vs a real lightmeter vs Lumu.

      It works perfectly. Looks great. I'm more than happy with this.

      Great job James :)

      Back in Town today, I found my Luxi in the mailbox (Italy).
      Not yet tried nor opened, still got my LifeProof on.

    48. Paul Mullen on

      My Luxi arrived in Scotland today. No problems yet. Seems to work well but the app it works with has terrible UI. Will wait to see the final app. Well done on getting your product funded and produced.
