New Mark II Artist’s Viewfinder iPhone app simulates Leica rangefinder framelines

The new Mark II Artist's Viewfinder app is the successor of Viewfinder product line. The Mark II, sporting a completely redesigned main screen and operation paradigm, was rebuilt from the ground up to take advantage of new technologies available in iOS 7 and to create a platform for innovative new features. The new app is also the world's first real-time distortion correction feature that eliminates the wide converter's barrel distortion. The Mark II also leverages DIRE Studio's precise simulation engine and extensive Viewfinder Camera Database, containing more than 400 still and motion picture cameras, 150 medium/large format backs and countless lenses including the whole Leica range. You can get more information about the Mark II Artist's Viewfinder by visiting its microsite and on iTunes.

    Once again, something everybody is supposed to want becomes better by mimicing something nobody is supposed to want. Funny thing, Marketing.

    What abt Android?

    Finally, my phone will be able to simulate a viewfinder which is incapable of optically adjusting to match the view angle of the taking lens.

      Do you remember the technique of holding a slide frame in front of one eye, varying the distance between the frame and your eye to quickly asses various framing alternatives (and just plain help with visualising an image by adding a frame around it). There is some benefit in seeing how an image would look like if applying a certain framing… just not a $25 benefit.

        Maybe I’m in the minority but I have no problem looking at a scene and visualizing how it would look in different focal lengths without even lifting a camera to my eye.

    I wonder if these framelines are innacurate too.
