Geminos is a tool that matches the field of view of two different cameras by displaying the corresponding focal lengths. This is useful when working with mixed sensor sizes and much more accurate than calculation with a simple crop factor. The app will show you the matching horizontal and vertical focal lengths, so you can even operate with different aspect ratios. Geminos also displays a proportionally accurate graphical representation of the sensor sizes and the horizontal/vertical match.
We’ve included all commonly used professional camera formats (see list below), but in case you don’t find your camera in the database, you can easily create custom formats. Geminos supports the use of spherical, anamorphic 1.3x and anamorphic 2x lenses.

"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
