This app is designed for directors and DP’s to block out and stage shots.
A director’s viewfinder is a viewer used by film directors and cinematographers to frame a shot as seen through the camera lens. Like a traditional viewfinder, this app simulates various cameras, formats and lenses.
In order to support lenses wider than your device can display, the preview is shrunk in relation to the size of the actual lens. You can use this to gauge the extents of the frame.
Currently this app supports lens sizes from 6mm to 200mm, most aspect ratio formats, and the following cameras:
Canon 5D mkII
Sony 2/3″ chip cameras
Standard DV 1/3″ chip cameras
Four Thirds format
Panasonic AG-HPX370 series
I can add support for any camera, formats, or lenses. Just send me an email with your request. If it isn’t supported by the current set of options, then I’ll add it to the next release.
Never be without your viewfinder again.
