Several days ago, I asked Satsuki about how they knew the Sun will appear at a particular spot in one of the scenes in Satsuki’s reel.
I was aiming to find out if Satsuki was using any of the Sun-tracking apps.
There are a few which seem to be really popular, especially with photographers.
One of them is PhotoPills, currently available only for iOS, but there is an Android version in the works (if I remember correctly, by the end of the year it will hit Play Store). The app is $9.99 in the App Store:
It looks gorgeous.
Its competitor is the Sun Surveyor app, available both for Android and iOS. It’s $7.99 in the Play Store:
Looks great, too.
Another similar one, available on both platforms is The Photographer’s Ephemeris, which also has a free Web app:
Satsuki mentioned Sun Seeker.
Then there's the Set Lighting Technician, $5.99, which provides specifications for most frequently used lights on set. Available for both platforms, though one commentator in the Play Store says that the iPhone version has more information.
So I was wondering are there any other apps, of any other type, which you use and which are useful in your job?
