“How much drive space will I need for this Alexa Mini LF shoot?”
“What’s the dynamic range of the Venice 2?”
“How long will these batteries last me on a C300 Mk III?”
“How big is this ProRes file going to be when I export?”
If you’ve ever asked these questions, this is the app for you. Whether you’re making decisions on set, troubleshooting in an edit bay, or figuring out which camera to buy, we’ve got you covered. Search over 150 cameras with a list that includes Arri, Canon, Red, Sony, Blackmagic, Panasonic and more. Or browse by format, from standards like ProRes and DNxHR to the newer Blackmagic Raw and ProRes Raw.
Includes dynamic range, sensor size, native ISO, lens mounts, resolutions, maximum FPS and a link to the manufacturer’s website for firmware & manuals.
Determine how much footage you can fit on your camera card or hard drive– or how much storage space you’ll need for a given recording time.
Predict just how long it will take to move your files, whether you’re transferring to a drive or over the internet.
Estimate how long your batteries will last, or how many you’ll need for a shoot, with the option to factor in accessories like your monitor or wireless transmitter.
See the sensor size for the current resolution and compare sensors between cameras.
See how well each camera and format performs with the latest versions of Final Cut Pro, Premiere Pro, Avid Media Composer, Assimilate Scratch and DaVinci Resolve. Also see if it’s been approved by Netflix for original programming.
Jot down observations and anything you want to remember about a camera with Notes. Compare specs or any other tool like Storage or Compatibility. Save your calculations and return to them later with a tap. Mark any camera as a favorite for quick access.
