Ratings and Reviews
Been Waiting For This
First time reviewer here. I recently downloaded this app and really dug the simplicity of use. I’m an independent filmmaker so that means I pretty much have to do everything for my productions. Just being able to pick up my phone when I find a location and snap a few photos makes pre-production a breeze for me. The company that makes the app is amazing. I asked for them to add more Sony Cameras into their presets and within a week, they added them and sent me a message to inform me. I’m incredibly thankful for this app. Give it a shot!
My Favorite New Tool!
I first saw a friend using this on set, and since then I’ve loved using CineScout. It’s super easy to use and really helps me pre-visualize my scenes! The whole interface and flow is far superior to some of the other viewfinder apps I’ve used before. This is the one I’ve wished I’ve had all along! A great purchase!
Has potential but has a long way to get there
First off, I bought this because I thought Artemis was a little too pricey and I really hoped for the best. I own a Red scarlet W and although the app has the red scarlet W as a preset - it does not accurately represent the sensor size or focal length with regards to Lens selection. Your screen at 2k looks the exact same way as your screen on 4K (which of course is never the same )
Secondly , only a few selected lenses are on the preset- perhaps the developer intends to update this. Anyways , it wasn’t what I hoped for after field testing and I will say- unless this is updated , stay away from it.
With Family Sharing set up, up to six family members can use this app.
