  • A great app for anyone using cameras and accessories

    by mrkthms

    I really find this app useful. It's the first app I go to when I'm planning a shoot. I give it 4 stars only because it would be better if it would sync from iPhone to iPad. Also, the ability to manage where the equipment is coming from (i.e.. vendor or personal gear) would be helpful. Great job though.

    by MiamiDP

    I recently gave this app a very low rating for some typos on camera tech specs and personal issues with format and content. The developer has contacted me directly to address my concerns and has committed to fix the errors. Very speedy response and quick customer care.

  • Great Job

    by sponester3

    Great work by Starr Whitesides designing such a useful app, no surprise since he is a hard working Cinematographer. This app saves me a ton of time and has everything needed to put together a complete camera list quickly and correctly. great job. Bradley Stonesifer Cinematographer

  • A well thought out app

    by John is me

    This app makes putting a camera order together very easy. Just tap away at all the bits and pieces that you'll need and then email the list to the rental house and your crew. The only thing that I wish it had is the ability to add items that are not already programmed in the app. That would make it just about perfect.

  • Very useful!

  • Abandoned App

    by Camera A

    Don't let the other reviews fool you. Most were written the day this app was released and I'm guessing by friends and family. This app has lots of potential, but it needs to keep up with technology and not just focus mainly on film gear. There are many new cameras, lenses and digital accessories that need to be added to the equipment lists. The app's developer promised many updates coming soon..... That was over a year ago. I tried emailing twice.... No reply. I have used this app a number of times to order an extra camera package for our show. App works fine and I can email the order directly to the PM and rental house, which is great, but if I need something that's not listed, I have to get creative and stick the item in an unrelated category and type in a description. When a last minute camera order comes in I need to work fast and get it together and approved ASAP.... all while still attending to my camera. Without updates and current gear on this app I find it takes longer than it needs to to create an order. Spending $20 on this app, one would expect that it be maintained and kept current. If I knew that app was abandoned I would have saved my money. Too bad...... Update: does not work with latest iPhone upgrade. Can not email order. App had become useless.

  • Bad!

    by Shot2shot

    I bought this app to make a "camera order" but it is so out dated and unspecific that I had to call the camera house and redo the order on the phone. Save your money!

  • Needs Important Improvements to be Pro

    by tweakindeakin

    -Desperately needs a way to add personalized categories AND items that will be available in the item list for every order. Currently, you have to write a "note" every time. - Also needs to allow user to change the Item Title headings. For example, if I select ONE Panavision Primo Zoom, the App writes Panavision Primo Zooms(Plural). -Needs PDF export (currently only text and image are available) -No customization available With a price this high, I would expect more customization features since other programs similar to this for lighting orders are FREE and offer such customization.
