Photojournalists have a saying, “f/8 and be there,” meaning that being on the scene is more important than worrying about technical details. Yet with f/8, the depth-of-field and hyperfocal distance calculator for the iPhone and iPod touch, you’ll be there with the depth of field spot-on, too! Anywhere, anytime!
With f/8, all parameters and values are shown on a single screen with no scrolling required. All calculations are performed interactively in real time for maximum efficiency. The concept of camera bag provides fast access to the bodies, cameras, and lenses regularly used.
f/8 comes with presets for more than 800 camera models from Canon, Casio, Epson, Fujifilm, HP, Kodak, Konica, Kyocera, Leica, Minolta, Nikon, Olympus, Panasonic, Pentax, Ricoh, Samsung, Sigma, and Sony. There are also presets for various film formats (i.e., 35mm, 6x4.5, 6x6, 6x7, 6x9, 4x5, 5x7, 8x10), and cinematographic formats (i.e., 16mm, Super 16, 35mm). Furthermore, by choosing a circle of confusion (and, optionally, built-in lens) directly, camera models currently not listed can be user-defined. For lenses, f/8 allows not only the focal lengths to be specified but also their maximum aperture and minimum focus distance to conveniently adjust the range of input parameter allowed.
NOTE: f/8 does not use or manipulate the camera of the iPhone.

"Apps for Pro Filmmakers" is a curated database of professional filmmaking apps that can help you get a job done a little better or a little faster. This is a regularly updated resource of 400 (and counting) mobile, tablet, watch, and now desktop apps. We only include apps made for and used by film, television, and digital media professionals.
"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."FILMCAST
"[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."Directors Notes
