iPhone and iPad apps for Film and Television production
Most of these are applicable to my work on set as a Visual Effects Supervisor, but many iPhone/iPad users might find them useful.
Artemis: Director's Viewfinder and Remote for iPad
ClinometerA must have level and slope finder app. I've calibrated it with my Suunto PM-5 analog clinometer and it is usually within 1 degree of accuracy.
DSLR Camera RemoteControl your Nikon or Canon DSLR with your iPhone/iPad via a WiFi enabled computer. NOTE you need to have your DSLR tethered to the computer. It features remote triggering, remote DSLR camera adjustment settings, Image Review, Live View, Intervalometer and Auto Bracketing for HDR. It is a very cool app in theory and often in application, but it can have connection issues and I am not sure I would want to be relying on it with 100+ crew members waiting around for me to run down a gremlin.
It has been awhile since this has been updated, but great for use as an insert slate
LightTracA Google Map like app that shows the elevation and angle of the Sun for a particular day and time.
pCam Film+Digital CalculatorThe default must have cinematography and still photography calculator. Depth of Field, Splits, Field of View, Focal Length Match, Exposure, Running Time to Length, Shooting to Screen Time, HMI Flicker Free, Color Correction, Diopter, Macro, Time Lapse, Light Coverage, Scene Illumination, Dog and cats, Living together. This is like Felix's Bag of Tricks.
Editors addendum: Theodolite Pro
As described by iTunes:
Based on a centuries-old astronomical instrument, Theodolite is a cool new multi-function augmented reality app for the iPhone that serves as a compass, GPS, map, zoom camera, rangefinder, and two-axis inclinometer. Theodolite overlays real time information about position, altitude, bearing, and horizontal/vertical inclination on the iPhone’s live camera image, like an electronic viewfinder.
