Cadrage is a director’s viewfinder for your Android device. This app enables you to accurately preview the framing of any professional camera.

Blocking out a scene or scouting a location? Now you have hundreds of cameras right in your pocket! Select your camera and aspect ratio, then choose between zoom and prime lenses and Cadrage Director's Viewfinder will show you what’s in your frame by simulating the field of view of your camera/lens combination. It’s an indispensable tool for directors, cinematographers, camera operators, camera assistants, location scouts, photographers and all other filmmaking and photography professionals.

Cadrage has a built-in gallery and project manager to organize your snapshots. All important information like format, focal length, compass orientation and GPS data can be displayed for each snapshot in the gallery.

    I work for PBS and this app has been an amazing time and money saver. I do wish it had the Canon 1D-C though. Worth $30 paid $12.

    Great app! This should be exactly what I need, but I have one request. Could you please add an option for the new Blackmagic Pocket Cinema Camera? If you can, I'll gladly change my review from 4 stars to 5. :) Thanks in advance!
