The number of apps available in the Apple App Store grows exponentially with each passing day, and there certainly is no shortage of apps for cinematographers. We released an iPhone App roundup back in November, and Evan over at The Black and Blue has a nice write up of five useful iPad apps, including the F65 Remote from Sony.
We’ve had some time to play with the F65 Remote alongside the camera, and we’ve been very impressed with the futuristic capabilities of the app. The F65 Remote includes four modes. The Control mode essentially simulates the external operator panel of the camera. The Menu mode mirrors the camera menus faithfully, while the Output Signal Map mode displays your LUT and signal routing graphically, which is a great way to see an overview of your signal path at a glance. The fourth mode simply allows you to view a PDF copy of the camera manual, which is certainly handy for anyone who’s misplaced theirs!
