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, 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.
