Angle of View lets you make sense out of what the millimeters of your lens actually means. It tells you the degrees of angle your camera sees at any particular focal length (millimeters), how much zoom you get, and how big of a subject can fit into your shot. It also lets you compare five different types of cameras against each other at the same time.
The main screen is gesture-based for easy operation, and everything's fully customizable, including a "sensor size database" that lets you save and load whatever kinds of camera formats you want (e.g. 35mm film, Full-Frame digital, APS-C format, Four Thirds format, etc.). You also get free upgrades for life, including the upcoming universal iPhone/iPad version!
** full CoreData database of sensor formats
** multiple undo/redo support in editor mode
** support of multi-aspect ratio sensors (GH2, LX5,
** supports cropping sensors for 16:9 mode
(5D Mk II, 7D, D7000, etc.)
** customize and create sensor formats
** learn the "Absolute Zoom" of any lens on
** add a sensor or film format three different ways:
- knowing X by Y in mm
- knowing just the diagonal and aspect ratio
- knowing just the horizontal and aspect ratio
** Full-color, 4-page PDF user manual is built
into the app, and is always available.
** lifetime free updates, including free update to
iPad-compatible version (coming soon)
** even more cool stuff coming soon
One-handed operation with multi-touch gestural support:
** pinch your angle to set a "measuring tape"
distance for a to-scale reference
** move your slider to set distance-to-subject
** spin the numbers to set lens focal length
** switch between feet or meters with just one
** all the displays respond instantly to input
** quickly change between your sensor formats
** customizable dashboard of top five formats
Complex trigonometric equations computed in real-time:
** angle-of-view in degrees for horizontal, vertical,
and diagonal dimensions across the field of
** horizontal & vertical distances across your focal
plane update smoothly in real-time as you
move the slider
** you select a format to serve as your base format,
then the app computes the equivalent focal
lengths and relative magnification factors ("crop
factors") for the other four sensor sizes, relative
to the base format size
** ever wondered what your crop factor is from
35mm to 120? Now you can make snobby,
well-informed comments to your "full-frame"
friends about their crop-sensors...
** you set your measuring tape length, and the app
shows you how big that size would be, relative
to the total horizontal distance across the image
frame, also updated smoothly in real-time as
you move the slider (useful for planning shots)
** (height of the image frame is displayed
numerically only at this time, additional views
planned for future)
Fully customizable via settings screen:
** add new focal lengths to your spinning selector
** customize your min/max distance range for the
** add a new sensor format to any of your five slots
** edit an existing format and save as new, or
** browse your library of sensor formats,
** choose a format to work with, or delete the
ones you hate
