This should be a part of your e-kit

pCam Pro has saved my behind on many occasions. I’ve had to figure things out without the benefit of a DP’s advice and guidance and this app came through. Especially the FOV feature. That helped me determine the size of a stage I needed for a job. I cannot recommend this more highly. The cameras are updated constantly. Go to hip and pay for the privilege.

Great App with one huge thing missing

Love the app. So many tools to make sure your production looks & feels great.

The only thing that would make the app better from my experience with the app, is when previewing your shot in “Field of View”, the app should access your phone’s camera where the user can see exactly what their shot will look like depending on the camera and lens being used, rather than cartoon cut-outs that include dimensions (because people are different sizes and shapes).

That feature would make this app perfect.

Great, but please relocate hyperfocal “apply” button in Depth-of-Field calculator

The “apply” button, especially on the iPad version, is located where it is too easily hit by accident, especially because this is the same screen-location where “preview” is located on the “Field-of-View” calculator (i.e. it is VERY common to swap between these 2 calculators while shot-planning, and FoV “preview” is hit VERY often).

Developer Response ,

This button was relocated already. Thanks for your pCAM Pro support.
