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. From there you can also email them or export images to the camera roll of your device.

We've included all commonly used professional camera formats (see list below), but in case you don’t find your camera in the database, you can easily create custom formats. Cadrage supports spherical and anamorphic (1.3x, 1.5x, 2x) lenses and also the use of the popular Metabones Speedbooster adapters.

Cadrage also has a built-in calibration tool for your device's camera. This is essential for accurate previews and also allows the use of any wide-angle or telephoto adapters on your phone.

    The Sony A7s will never sell as many as the Alexia or Phantom, too bad its not supported.

    .... but it kept coming up wrong. I was measuring out the precise distance to the object and all, but never would it show me the right aspect ratio afterwards. Even with something as 1:2.20 I would still get a square aspect ratio with blue bars in the sides... What the hell to do, it's paid for, now I want it to work!
