This is a completely rewritten Version of NDCalc - now called NDCalc2. It's all new with these great features:
- build for iOS7
- supports the 4" Screens of iPhone5/s/c
- supports retina
- Much more comfortable selection of shutter speed and NDFilter (no wheel control)
- Multi-Select! Finally! You can switch to Multi-Select-Mode with a single tap in the toolbar if you are a ND-Filter-Stacker like myself :) Just activate Multi-Select-Mode and tap on any Filter you have stacked to the lens for really long exposures.
- Add your own Filters! Finally! You own a filter which is not listed in the default list? Just add it by f-stops, ND-Value or Factor.
- Delete Filters. Just delete all filters you don't own and make selecting filters much more convenient
- Reorder Filter. Order the Filter-List as you like it. Bring up the most used filters to the top of the list.
The core function is still the same as NDCalc:
You know the time without the filter -how long do you need to exp. WITH filter? Sounds easy but tell me quickly how long to exp. with an ND 1.8 if the time without filter is 1/320?
Now you can!
Set Filter and exp. time without the filter and you can see the correct time. In the example above 1/5
Even easier it shows you 5 because this is what you can set on a dSLR. Smaller letters showing you the actual time. For 12500'' it shows, that these are 3h, 28m and 20s.
For times of 4+ seconds you get a countdown button to easily stop longer exposures manually with a remote shutter release with alarm and vibration (if supported).
Waste of money - bugs galore for such a simple app
I can't believe I wasted a whole 69p purchasing this app. On first use, after adding a new filter the app crashed, when selecting a shutter speed/filter combination, if you happen to select more than one filter (I don't think it should let you do that anyway) and the exposure time is over a certain amount the app crashes, need I say anymore? This is easily fixed by using a simple if statement to check the exposure value (if you really want to allow the user to select more than one filter).
Then when you tap on the Start button, you don't even show a countdown timer, just a progress bar. For this, the progress bar is pointless as it doesn't tell me how many seconds of the exposure are remaining.
Come on, put some real thought into an app you are charging for.
