Join Eduardo Angel for an in-depth discussion in this video Using viewfinder apps, part of Cinematic Composition for Video Productions.
- We traditionally have relied…on the director's viewfinder…to simulate the field of view…of a camera in lens combination,…and plan our shots.…Recently, compact digital cameras…with powerful zooms have become quite popular.…And they also allow us to capture stills…to be used later on our storyboards.…Additionally, there are many mobile applications,…some of them even free,…that not only mimic traditional director's viewfinder…but more accurately preview many lens…and sensor size combinations.…
And even include essential tools for location scouting…such as weather forecasts, a compass and GPS data.…
