Developer's Description



Please note : this is NOT the complete version of foolcontrol, available to purchase separately..

foolcontrol-r is a restricted edition of the popular foolcontrol iOS app.
with foolcontrol-r you can only RECORD (start and stop) and REVIEW (the last recorded clip).

It offers easy wireless remote trigger when working on a crane or to check settings while getting ready to fly your camera on a gimbal or a drone.

You can monitor recording mode, status, histogram, remaining battery or media, and you can also fully explore foolcontrol’s menu system and setting pages. But anything beyond RECORD and REVIEW of last clip is read only and will not be changed on camera.

To benefit from all of the features (easy presets, color looks, slate, advanced settings, camera menu tree, focus control and more) you have to get the regular version of foolcontrol from the App Store.


foolcontrol-r works with any RED DSMC and DSMC2 cameras via wifi connectivity.

RED WEAPON / SCARLET-W and RAVEN all have built in wifi, ready for foolcontrol.

RED EPIC or SCARLET requires the use of either :
- RED lemo to cat5 ethernet cable and a GIG-E wireless router.
- RED REDLink bridge wifi module.
- Teradek COLR and GIG-E to lemo cable.
- RTMotion Latitude

"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 [Pro Filmmaker Apps]. 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
Pretty much every iPhone or Android App you'll ever need/want if you're a filmmaker
