You are missing out on an amazing app!

If you have not checked out this awesome app, you are missing an opportunity to solve problems that come up for production. I know this app is unique to the camera dept but I assure you that Production Designers, Producers, Chief Lighting Technicians, Key Grips, Storyboard Artists and anyone involved with pre-viz, can gain very useful info from their “what ifs”. pCam is an essential tool in my e-kit. It has saved me thousands of dollars due to its wealth of data. It enables me to see the future.
You must see for yourself.

Excellent app

Have owned PCam since the start of my focus pulling career. This app has helped me figure out complicated shots to just last night doing car plate shots with 9 cameras on a array, quickly figured out the hyperfocal distance for all. No need to have a camera implement if you know how to actually use the app. Has helped me countless of time in my Local 600 career. Thanks!

I am a lowly Producer...

...but I have used this incredibly useful app both on my MacBookPro as well as my iPhone. It's in constant update as new cameras are introduced.
There are times when I need technical backup to explain a potential "watch-out" to a client.
I'm not technical and that's why I use pCAM Pro. It simplifies very technical information. It's worth every penny.
