There's 2 new apps out now for the Iphone that I think are pretty damn useful. Here we go.
DATA RATE CALCULATOR
The MPC Data Lab data rate calculator iPhone app is now available to download (free) from the iTunes store.
It enables you to work out disk space needed for given running times of most digital cameras out there & how much this will take on disk once transcoded. There's also a film footage calculator for those who enjoy a bit of retro.
Hope you find it useful
I love this app. . . the only thing I wish it did was give you file sizes for ALL the flavors of ProRes, as well as the different REDCODE datarates . . . but other than that, everything is here.
Here's a breakdown of the features:
ARRI D-21 RAW Mode
Silicon Imaging 2k
P2 AVC-Intra 100/AVC Intra 50
With these Datarates, the app will give you # of Frames and Storage based on Run-Time (which you can input) and Framerate (23.98/24/25/29.97).
It'll ALSO give you length/# of Frames of the footage shot if you're shooting film. The options there are 35mm 4/3/2 perf, 16mm, and Super 8mm.
There's even a storage calculator, based on Filetype (DPX 10-bit/Tiff 16bit/Tiff 8bit), Frame size (4k/2k/HD/SD/PAL in EVERY Conceivable size)), and Frame Rate.
AGAIN, the only thing that I think it's lacking is the different flavors of Pro-Res in the storage calculator, but other than that, it's AWESOME. It's currently free, go grab it.
AND FOR ALL THE AC's out there. ..
WIRELESS CAMERA CONTROL FROM IPOD
Here's some links for it. . . haven't had a reason to try this, but seems like a cool idea. . .
