Developer's Description

(Updated 10/7/2011: Acacia is now up to version 0.7.4b, and contains features such as a virtual slate, shot logging, and a rudimentary director’s viewfinder.)

Acacia (previously called AssCam) is a Camera Assistant’s app for Google’s Android platform.

It is predominantly aimed at cinematographers shooting on both film and video, but is of some use to still photographers as well.

The current release is v0.5.4 (“Lucy”).

It features:
* Real-time calculation of:
* Depth Of Field (DOF)
* Field of View
* Hyperfocal distance

Equipment management for
* Cameras
* Lenses

There’s also some additional features in progress. I tend to release things incrementally to get feedback from users, who’ve had some great idea so far. Thus you’ll find things which are not complete, or even started. The big stuff o0n the horizon is:
* Shot logging.
* Camera reporting
* Virtual slate function

"FWD:labs carries the most complete listing of linked professional apps I know besides of the fragmented Android Market (google play) and the iPhone App Store. I suspect it is a tenuous work to compile and link all proven working apps and much more your site offers. I thank you for sharing such complete list of iPhone and android apps for the cinematographer and the entertainment industry in general. I could not pass the opportunity let know my readers about your meticulous resource."
"[R]idiculously useful compendium"
Directors Notes
"I thought [FWD:labs] had put together a useful list when I saw it last year, but that was nothing compared to now. If you're a filmmaker and looking for a little portable help in pre/production/post then chances are you'll find it in the Apps for Cinema Artists. I know I can be a little iPhone-centric when it comes to these things, but you’ll be pleased to know the list is completely platform agnostic."

Pretty much every iPhone or Android App you'll ever need/want if you're a filmmaker
