Shoot like the pros with the first Photography app from Panavision Inc., the leading designer, manufacturer and supplier of ultra precision equipment for the motion picture industry.

Before cameras roll on movie sets around the world, crews scout the locations.

PANASCOUT simulates the cinematographer’s viewpoint from a professional cinema camera. Add flavor and composition to your photos when you see what the pros see.

Panascout has an ergonomic workflow that allows filmmakers to access the cinematic quality of any location, and record the true metadata behind it.

CAPTURE your photo and video image metadata in every shot including: GPS Data, Compass Heading, Date/Time, Aspect Ratio, and Focal Length.

Every filmmaker knows what it's like to "chase the sun". With Panascout, you will always be equipped with a Sunrise/Sunset readout for your present location.

Toggle on/off Centering Crosshairs, PANAFRAME Lines, and various Aspect Ratio masking frames in true widescreen 2.40 (Anamorphic), 1.85 (Super 35mm), 1.78 (16x9 HD), 1.33 (4x3) and custom aspect ratios.

PROCESS your photo and video by adding the File Name, Text Notes, Tags, and Audio Notes to the images and in the file metadata. Easily manage and catalogue your work in Folders or save to the native device photo Camera Roll library.

SHARE your photos and videos with friends and colleagues via Email, Dropbox, YouTube, and Tumblr.

Ratings and Reviews



Doesn't let you upgrade individual features. Not sure if it's charging me or not but it's not working. Stupid app.

Awesome App

Jim Steuart

This is such a great little app. Hope it works well on the iphone 4.

E-mail Features Problematic

iPad Genius

This application is great.

However, the e-mail function doesn't work to send photos.

The software indicates that the selected photo was sent by e-mail OK, however this seems to be a bug...

I have to save photos first to the iPhone library and then import into e-mail program to send...

Hoping for a software fix update for iPhone 3G
