director's viewfinder app on smartphone as preview tool
« on: February 04, 2021, 06:19:42 PM »
 Hi all,

We know that the main issue with 1:1 modes is the cropped preview. There is a stuff we can use to help when shooting especially moving shots: a director's viewfinder application on your smartphone.

It's easy by setting the smartphone near the camera to achieve a very similar liveview.   

of course it will be not perfect due to the perspective. however
It will be usefull to follow a subject or whatever.


we can also use another camera but we need two cameras and two lenses !

Or maybe this?

This device needs a HDMI input.
In my case, I use the inbuilt camera of the smartphone to provide me a decent preview.
