I do not have the habit of telling you stories and when we are before a book, a film, a filmmaker or an application that is not by chance. It is that I believe hard as iron that it may help you.

This week I would like to tell you about a great application and it is available in a lite version free of charge. There is a paid version, less than 9 euros, which is not huge. But you are not obliged to pay panascout to be able to use it.

Panascout what is it ?

Panascout has been developed by Panavision, that is to say, one of the most famous brands of manufacturers of cameras to the film industry. Panavision is the guarantor of professionalism, equipment-specific and at the cutting edge of technology.

At the base, Panascout has been created for the heir tracers of cinema and television. Pana (for panavision), and scout (to find).

But over the years Panascout has found a wider audience of amateurs and semi – pros than it is for the realization or the writing of scenarios.

Writing scripts ?

Actually, this may sound crazy, said it like this, but a lot of writers aspiring and young directors in the grass are Panascout an ally of weight for inspiration, or recollection of the axes, of light and of focal the ideal function of such or such a scenery they have seen.

Panascout allows you to simulate what sees a film camera and, therefore, compose your image as a pro or as it will be the day of your shoot.

Panascout allows you to take a photo or a video in wide-screen In True 2.40 (Anamorphic), 1 :85 (super 35mm), height 1.78(16X9 HD) and 1.33 (4X3).

But you can also choose the focal ! From 27 To 150 ! With intermediate level but are in the end notvery useful ;o)

But Panascout goes even further, thanks to a simple menu to use. You can make a video of the place that you like but also save a number of crucial information to your script or your film : GPS Coordinates, date, time, a compass (to know where the sun sets and rises can be important ;o), as Well as the time of sunset and sunrise !
