Developer's Description

Created for use with RED ONE®, EPIC® and SCARLET® professional cameras, the REDTools App is a convenient, multipurpose toolkit designed for on-set use by digital imaging technicians and camera operators, and as a learning tool for camera enthusiasts. It features six tools that can assist with:

- Visualizing crop factors and lens focal length
- Estimating maximum recording time based on storage space and project settings
- Identifying safe flicker-free frame rate and shutter speed combinations under pulsed lighting
- Calculating how lens settings affect depth of field
- Seeing how project settings and ND filters influence exposure
- Finding a suggested panning rate to minimize judder and strobing

Each is customizable based on RED sensor and camera type. Standard film formats are also included for comparison.

"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
