Description

Magic Canonic ViewFinder presents you a precise framing preview for the real camera/lens combination you'll be shooting with, right where you stand with your iPhone / iPad. It simulates the field of view of digital cameras or lens and can help thousands of professionals in filmmaking at the preproduction.

PLEASE READ: this app does not turn your Apple device into an external monitor, but operates as a stand-alone director's viewfinder.

The app contains ad banners, which can be turned off with additional in-app purchase (in 'About the App' menu).

The app is a digital directors viewfinder - it helps you see the exact field of view for your future shot. Select the camera from the menu and rotate the wheel to select the focal length of the lens.

Supported cameras:
Full Frame (in both photo mode 3:2 and video mode 16:9)
- EOS-1D X Mark II
- EOS 5D Mark IV, III, II, I
- EOS 1D C, 5DS, 5DS R, 6D

APS-C cropped sensor (photo mode 3:2 / video mode 16:9)
- EOS 7D M II and I, 80D, 77D (9000D), Rebel T7i (800D), etc
- EOS M6 / M5 / M10 / M3

- EOS C100, C300, C500, C300 MkII
- XA10, XF100

Magic ViewFinder simulates using tele adapters or anamorphic optics on your camera (see menu). From the menu you can also select the aspect ratio of the frame guide overlaying your image.

Magic ViewFinder lets you apply color presets (aka LUTs) to the live picture, which brings you even closer to the final shot.

You may capture the image or video for future reference, with additional data like the focal length, date/time and camera / lens information.
While capturing, you may lock exposure and turn on/off AF to better control the captured picture.

You can turn on the AF mode, or lock the focus temporarily. You can also tap the live screen to focus on particular objects.

White balance may work in Auto, Locked or Manual mode.

If the field of view of your real camera is wider than your in-device camera, the app adds 'padding' around the image, since the device cannot 'see' what is beyond.

Please note that position of your iPhone or iPad should correspond to the 'nodal point' of your real lens, which is somewhere in the middle of the lens. This point is, so to speak, the weighted center of the optics.

Ad policy: The ads are designed to appear non-intrusively. Ads can be turned off (see below).

Great app - excellent support

I love this app! I didn’t understand one aspect of it (my own ignorance, no problem with the app).
I fired off an email and had a response within two minutes! Excellent support!

Developer Response ,

Thanks for the review!)

Love this app!

Used it to help storyboard a film I shot this past weekend and it was extremely useful. I recommended purchasing the full version for the extra aspect ratios and features, definitely worth it! The only reason I give it four stars and not five, is due to the color of the aspect ratio outline. I wish there was a way to customize this or make it a brighter color. Also, I wish any pictures you take automatically crop to this aspect ratio! Besides that, amazing app!

Developer Response ,

Hi there, thanks for your review. You can change the color of the frame guide in the Preferences menu. Cropping to the frame guide is coming soon

Invaluable tool for filmmakers

I cannot tell you how many times I have pulled this app out when I’m trying to set up a shot. It makes life as a director so much easier. Thank you!

Developer Response ,

Thanks so much. Glad you like it)
