    One of the best & most useful app on my phone.

    This app is amazing, but the two features I find most useful (i.e. DoF calculator, sending cam reports out via .html) crash the app. I've been sending crash reports for a while now, but I've yet to receive an effective response.

    Possibly the most useful app on my tablet. Running Nexus 9 and app seems fine with Lollipop. Keep up the good work.

    I have mainly been using the app for the camera log and report function and its great! But it sometimes force closes if I have the app in the background for too long

    Fast and elegant user interface and tons of useful tools and information. Please keep on updating it with new camera/lens info as it becomes available.

    Just wrapped a short film and used this for reference and camera logging - very useful. Would love more fields to log takes, WB and fps however.
