User Reviews for Sylights

Perfect app for simple lighting diagrams

It is very good for planning and recording lighting setups. Love the scaling feature for all equipments and subjects

It’s alright..

I wish there more options for walls, and furniture. Even some simple lines and shapes that I could use to represent things. The ability to tap and hold and choose a custom color for gels would be nice. And the ability to rotate things on the X,Y, and Z axis. More range of scaling for the diagram would be cool too. Would definitely pay for some of these features.

Wonderful tool that does things the other lighting diagram did not. I think the ability to email your diagram with descriptions is awesome. I also like the ability to go in and make changes to your diagram as well. Being able to resize softboxes is very helpful. I think the actual drawing area is too small... That could use a little more room. I would also like to see a way to add f-stop info and other description info directly onto the diagram itself that is attached to the objects. Great App!

Great tool, but could use a few more options

This is a pretty good app. I use it fairly often . I just wish these apps were not tailored for portrait photographers who use small camera flashes and mono-lights. It would be great of this app had more background options like: walls, windows, and even tables, and chairs for lifestyle product shots. I would also love it of they would add power packs with strobe heads. So you can show up to 4 heads on a pack and what the out put settings were on each pack. This app has a lot of potential if these things were added.

Latest update doesn’t work

All you get is a blank screen with a menu disk at the top. No diagrams, no info-nothing. I am deleting this piece of junk.

Really useful but could use some improvements

Mostly it just needs a way to favorite/save pre-existing set ups. It also needs a way to identify what each object in the diagram is when you discover one so you know what to use even when the creator won’t describe it (frequent). Otherwise REALLY useful especially for photographers just beginning to learn sty the tic lighting

Like most of the apps out there this one is designed to sell ads. Any benefit it provides to a photographer is coincidental.

Very useful

I used it a couple of times. It’s very useful.

Very Nice, Free, Light Diagram Tool

This is a great app, especially considering its price tag (free). The UI takes a little while to get used to, but once you figure out how it works the tool becomes intuitive and powerful. It can be a little difficult to rotate and resize images on the small iPhone screen (especially if you have big fingers like me) but its doable. An iPad version of this app that takes advantage of the iPad's larger screen real estate would be incredible and I'm really hoping that Sylights is considering it. In terms of enhancements, it would be great to be able to attach (or link) a corresponding photo to the light diagrams directly from each diagram (perhaps from the properties dialogue) and it would also be great to be able to upload diagrams directly to their site directly from the app (as opposed to exporting the image and then having to upload it manually). Those enhancements, coupled with the addition of a few more light modifiers to choose from for each diagram, would make this a killer app for strobist photographers.

Majority of features aren’t available

App has some major bug issues that need fixed. Majority of the features aren’t working.
