Ratings and Reviews
I recently invested considerable sum into the Lee filter system for my Nikon D850. This app is a perfect match, allowing me to quickly calculate proper exposure for various filter combinations. While I have yet to shoot in the field since getting all my filters, I've played with the app enough to know it will be quite handy. It also got a recent update, so its nice to know development is active.
Not just a calculator. Excellent multitool with lots of professional tools for many photo/video needs. Important - each instrument has own very informative and helpful HELP menu, as well as a learning base. Beside that - quick, professional and friendly customer support. Highly recommended and huge respect to authors and developers!
I use it as a pocket reference guide. It's really easy to use, especially when you are not an expert on doing the required calculations for neutral density filters.
With Family Sharing set up, up to six family members can use this app.
