  • With the sample code, the measurement always drop from 10000 directly to below 5500, what could be the problem?

    Luminous flux: 5103 Luminous flux: 5133 Luminous flux: 5334 Luminous flux: 5424 Luminous flux: 10041 Luminous flux: 10140 Luminous flux: 10153 Luminous flux: 10134 Luminous flux: 10331 Luminous flux: 10353 Luminous flux: 10441 Luminous flux: 11140 Luminous flux: 10345 Luminous flux: 5342 Luminous flux: 5421

    1. You write: "It is non-instantaneous". Nevertheless it looks quite fast to me. You were able to diplay a reading every second. It seems you could have gotten a reading every tenth of a second, but probably not much more quickly.
    2. The interrupt and thresholds system are interesting, e.g. if you want to use this device to trigger a camera only when there is a significant change of luminosity.
