FAQ

Q. What is the DSLR Filmmaker Toolkit?

A. The DSLR Filmmaker Toolkit is an iOS application which includes several tools aimed at film makers on a tight budget.

Q. What information can be entered on the slate?

A. Production name, director, DOP, int/ext, day/nite, scene, take, FPS, lens, filter, camera, memory card, white balance, ISO.

Q. How accurate is the view finder?

A. I don't have the means to test every camera + lens combination, but it has been tested to the best of my ability with various cameras and prime lenses. Since some zoom lenses can 'breathe' when focussing, the actual focal length can change as the focus is moved, even though the lens marking will still indicate a particular focal length.

Q. Who is the developer?

A. The developer is myself, Richard (professional developer by day, amateur film maker/5D II owner by night). It was built with the help of a graphic designer, and with the input of several film makers.

Q. How did the app come about?

A. There are a lot of amazing apps already the app store aimed at film makers. I wanted a way of combining all of these useful features into one app, so that I had just one toolkit with everything I needed for my own projects. I started to build the app just for myself, but after having other people express interest in it, I decided to market it on the app store.
