Panavision’s PANASCOUT application is an essential tool used by filmmakers during preproduction and location scouting. Now with the convenience of any smart phone, you can capture crucial data and share it with the whole creative team.

PANASCOUT now offers a sophisticated framing overlay that displays a choice of aspect ratios from true widescreen 2.40 (Anamorphic), to 1.85 (Super 35mm), 1.78 (16:9 HD), and 1.33 (4:3) and custom. Preview your scene with zoom and prime lens controls which includes a focal length display in the 35 mm format equivalent.

In addition you can capture date/time, file name, focal length, and aspect ratio. You can also add pertinent notes for each image and save to a folder or the device’s library. A “Map it” button allows photos to be plotted on a map identifying the exact location where they were taken.

Now more than ever you can communicate technical information accurately and effortlessly.
