Lighting Calculator combines several useful calculations that lighting designers and technicians use on a day to day basis.
Beam Angle Calculator:
• Required Lens - Provide the distance and desired beam size and the app will tell you what size lens you’l need.
• Beam Diameter - Provide the distance and lens angle and the app will tell you how big a pool of light you’ll have.
•Throw Distance - Provide the beam size and lens angle and the app will tell you how far a throw is required.
Gobo Projection Calculator:
• Image Size - Provide the app with the gobo image size and throw distance, select the lantern your using and it will provide the projected image size.
• Gobo Size -Provide your desired projected Image size and throw distance, select the lantern your going to use and it will provide you with the gobo image size you need. - Handy when designing your gobo’s!
All measurements are available in Metric and Imperial, and more lanterns will be added regularly. In time a database covering over 500 lamps both conventional and moving lights will be added for easy selection and reference.

"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
