Hello folks,

If your thinking of asking Santa for one of those MKV Directors View Finders......STOP.

For less than $30 (US) you can turn your swanky new iphone into one instead, using it's onboard Camera. WooHoo.

I'm not connected in any way shape or form with the company that has developed this app (they're also behind the Helios Sun Finder app) but have to say they are very responsive to requests.

I asked if the 1/3" chip size was a generic size used or was it based on any particular camera. It's generic but when I asked if they could base it on the HVX-200 they guy emailed me back saying they'd update the camera database and ad the HVX-200 on the next update. Cool.

Here's the link for the app:

Sounds interesting.


Funny coincidence. I'm currently working with the DP who developed artemis.

I'll add to the description that every single format and lens was tested and double checked to be accurate. It's not just ballparked, it's an accurate useful tool. I like that you can specify the lenses you're carrying so you only have the lengths that matter to you at that moment.
