Best $5 I Ever Spent!

Awesome app!! It does exactly what is says: it calculates DoF, it gives a FoV preview (my favorite - with live histogram!), it calculates the minimum shutter speed required (using live view for calculations!), and even gives you a remote trigger mode for so many camera models (with a home made $2 adapter), among many other features! What amazed me the most though is their unbelievable customer support! I asked them (emailed) for a little fix this morning, an error message for my Nikon D600 under the remote camera trigger tab. Not only that they answered in less than 2 hrs., but they fixed the issue and uploaded the update right then. Wow!! I also asked in my email for an added feature (precise support for 85mm lens), and they already put my request on the next update list. I am VERY happy with this app and their creators, and I really think that every serious photographer should get it.

Like the app, but

It does tend to be a bit confusing regarding the differences in the SetMyCamera family of apps. Four versions?

But what is most frustrating/irritating is having to pay a total of $12 to have the pro version on both my iPhone and iPad (and neither even support IR control for my Canon EOS RP — although that wasn’t my primary reason for buying).

It’s a nice app, great interface, but, for all the more it does, it seems overpriced when compared to the vast majority of other photography apps. If it could be purchased for a total of $5.99 on both iPhone and iPad AND IR control on EOS RP, then i wouldn’t hesitate to give it 5 stars.

Developer Response ,

One purchase does cover both the iPhone and iPad if you are using the same Apple account on each. Simply contacting SetMyCamera support would have provided assistance as needed. The Canon EOS RP does not support IR.

You paid 10 USD basically to have some calculations tabs and see all the features that a suscription for 3$\month could give you. You don’t feel at all that you are in a paid version.
Very disappointed. Also, not intuitive. Bad marketing, bad business implementation.
