Panavision out there one of the applications of the most useful ever invented for all the directors, cameramen, heir tracers, assistant director and even screenwriter !!!

Sometimes I notice a place or an atmosphere that I love. My imagination turns on, I take a photo or video with Panascout in the format of 1:85 to have a trace. Once in front of my computer I can watch it again to write my sequence. This method allows you to pre-register and/or to be able to show your team what you have in mind…

In addition the application allows you to take photos or videos. If you wish, the application will allow you to add the coordinates of GPS, the time, date, angle, and a voice comment.

Where Panavision pushes further than other apps of photos, it is in terms of cinematography. It is possible to choose a frame 2.40, 1.85, 1.78 or 1.33 and it, it can be life-changing, believe me !

The application can send the images to icloud, SmugMug, and even your Final Cut Server.
