Artemis HD – New iPad Photography App

Share

This version of Artemis is a digital directors viewfinder for the iPad 2 (with built in camera). Designed for both cinematographers and directors, Artemis works in much the same way as a traditional directors viewfinder but more accurately and with loads more features.

By selecting a camera, an aspect ratio and a group of lenses, Artemis allows you compose shots with the same field of view as the lenses you will be shooting with. You can then save images, complete with focal length, GPS data, tilt angle, bearing and shot information. Perfect for location scouting or making storyboards.

 

What cameras are covered?

The field of view is measured from the "nodal point", roughly mid way down the length of the lens, in keeping with the method used by lens manufacturers. Keep this in mind when comparing Artemis to your camera/lens combination.

Camera formats include::

16mm Film Standard, Super & 1.3 Anamorphic
35mm Film Standard, Super & Anamorphic
65mm Film
35mm Digital (ARRI Alexa, ARRI D-21, RED One, Sony F35, Panavision Genesis)
High Speed Digital (Phantom, Weisscam)
2/3" Digital (Sony F23, Thompson Viper, Panasonic Varicam, SI 2K)
1/2" Digital (including Sony EX3 & EX1)
1/3" Digital (including Panasonic HVX200)
Digital Stills Format (including Canon 1D, 5DMkII & 7D)

How wide does it go?

For lenses wider than the iPhone/iPod field of view, Artemis adds "padding" on the screen. While this is not ideal, it’s our best solution for getting around the limitations of the camera in your iPhone/iPod Touch.

If your camera format isn’t included or you believe a camera format isn’t working for you, chemical Wedding, the developers of Artemis include a custom camera feature that allows you to configure Artemis to any camera system. You can even send them the format data and they may include it in their next update.
