Developer's Description

The “Digital Director” App is an interface between Canon and Nikon digital cameras (DSLRs) and an iPad.
This intuitive App gives you control of your photo and video workflow, enabling you to shoot remotely and manage all key camera parameters (e.g. aperture, shutter speed, ISO - and much more) right from your iPad.
Use it to quickly and easily set up an intervalometer or time lapse session and to remotely control up to thirteen Manfrotto LYKOS & Litepanels ASTRA lights via Bluetooth. Touch your iPad screen to determine your focus point and confirm critical image focus with “focus peaking” and digital zoom; correct exposure with the Zebra filter.
The app’s layout is easily customizable (standard, full screen, portrait) to suit your preferences.
Download your still images onto the iPad for post-production and share your images via the social network of your choice, by e-mail, FTP or your computer via Wi-Fi web server – from the “Digital Director” App.
With the Manfrotto Digital Director Plug-in for Adobe Lightroom for desktop you can also import the additional Digital Director metadata of pictures you’ve shared from Digital Director – via Wi-Fi web server, e-mail and FTP – into Adobe Lightroom for desktop.

The “Digital Director” App requires the additional DIGITAL DIRECTOR hardware in order to operate.

"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
