Updated database of cameras and lenses.
Completely rebuilt engine. Exciting things on the way soon.
Upgrade workaround not obvious
I too was bummed about the upgrade that didn't work... However, it would be a whole lot easier if they just inform you before you upgrade that you need to delete your existing program and then it will work well enough. I had a week of frustration before I checked their website that states to delete if it doesn't work right away. Why frustrate people that have paid good money for a good program. I was amazed that they released the upgrade that wasn't working, or didn't delete it automatically during the install.
Alpha at best, not a finished app - Get pCam instead
DO NOT BUY. I've been using pCam for a while, but noticed this app in the "godzilla" edition of American Cinematographer and decided to try it out. It just plain doesn't work. In fact, I tried three times to open this app while writing this review and it crashed immediately upon opening… and i'm using a 3 day new iPhone. When it does open, it has NO LENSES for any cameras I tried - including RED flavors. I'm trying to figure out how to get a refund. Maybe when this app matures in a year or so it may be awesome. I like the idea of logging shots this way, but the app just didn't work for me. For now, you may want to seriously consider passing on this.
Bad Update, do not buy!!!
The last update has crashed every time almost consistently. I have to delete it and reinstall it over and over due to not opening at all, and then when it is working the cameras I choose have no lenses that come up for options. This program was only slightly reliable before, not good for more simple set ups like DSLR's. I am really upset with having paid for what appears to be a great app not really working at all. Should they fix this I will re-write my review, pending that I am not sure why companies do not test their products more thoroughly before placing them in the market.
