What's New in Version 1.3
Implementation More Tab with integration of facebook and twitter.
One of the best general camera assisting apps I've found. Straightforward interface, and a wealth of useful info at your fingertips. One of the only apps I've found that has built-in camera specs for the Epic and Alexa as well, which is a huge help when assisting with bigger budget cameras and shoots. A little on the pricey side but it does the job of several apps by itself.
Packed with Info
This is a great app, and I appreciate all the work that went into it! That being said, an update with added common production cameras would be ideal. The Canon C300 is one of the most common cameras used on a variety of productions, now. An addition of that camera and other newer cameras, like the Canon 5D Mark III and maybe GoPros, would be great!! Updated cameras, and it's a five star app for sure. Nice job.
It crashes way too much. Having to reload the app every 2 min is annoying. It could also benefit with more visuals.
However, this is is an extremely informative app that gives me a much clearer idea on subjects that are somewhat technical.
Fix the app crashing and this will spike up to a 5 star
