The new video-shooting feature in the Cadrage Director’s Viewfinder app makes it easier than ever to plan your shot.
Cadrage is an app that allows you to visualise the field of view you would get with the sensor sizes of various popular cameras in combination with different focal lengths (you can see our original article about it HERE). This is the kind of app that every filmmaker should have on their phone as it lets you quickly visualise your shots during location scouts, or before even taking your camera out of its bag on shooting day.
The latest update to the Cadrage app brings with it the much-requested feature of video recording. The ability to record the various camera and focal length combinations as video is a significant step up from simply snapping stills for later viewing, as it allows you to preview shots that incorporate camera movement. According to Cadrage, this is a key feature that truly sets it apart from other similar apps in the market.
Other than the video feature, the app offers a number of other tools, such as high-quality stills capture, PDF list generator with shot information and Google maps location of the shot, and dual-camera support for the latest generation of iPhones, including for the upcoming iPhone X.
