VF Slate App for the IPad- Free Film and Audio Sync!

Nov 17, 2011 in Uncategorized

During the shoot for “Mr. Excitable” we used the View Factor Marker Slate app (free!) for the iPad. Available here
Very basic functions ( does not sync time code for instance ) but it worked great! Great visual and audio cues to sync video and audio in post. Critical for DSLR shooters!
View Factor has a whole line of non virtual products available at
View Factor specializes in camera support products for the cinema and television industries, specifically concentrating on motion, camera and lens control systems.
They also have DSLR support cages

and their motorized follow Focus systems
look particularly interesting. They are a bit out of my price range..but check em out!
