PhotoHelper - Camera Settings For Better Pictures

PhotoHelper - Camera Settings For Better Pictures



Why spend hundreds or thousands of dollars on a camera to get average pictures? PhotoHelper lets you take better pictures by optimizing settings on your camera to better suit each particular situation – easily, in seconds, and without a math degree!

With a few taps, PhotoHelper lets you enter information about your camera, lighting conditions and the subject you are shooting (including target depth of field needed). It takes this information and automatically tells you how to adjust the settings of your camera to:

• Ensure your subject is in focus (i.e. within depth-of-field/hyperfocal range)

• Avoid unwanted motion blur as well as over/under exposure

• Sidestep common pitfalls such as camera shake and/or grainy pictures

You can easily adjust the recommended speed, aperture, ISO, depth-of-field or target exposure parameters - the effect of your changes and potential warnings is displayed in real time. Typical depth-of-field (DOF) calculators provide only partial information, leaving you with the task of finding the right combination of shutter speed, ISO and exposure. PhotoHelper lets you visually see how all these work together – making the process much simpler and faster.

Many cameras are different! There are no 'generic' settings - PhotoHelper allows you to get the particular settings for YOUR camera. The included database supports most popular cameras and formats, including Canon, Casio, Fujifilm, HP, Kodak, Leica, Nikon, Olympus, Panasonic, Pentax and Sony. It also provides generic formats for 35mm, Digital SLR, APS-H, APS-C, Medium format, and most compact cameras. The supported lens range is from 2 to 1500mm.

If you are interested in a technical description of how PhotoHelper combines depth-of-field, angular velocity and other elements with information about your subject and camera to generate its recommendations, please visit our website!

NOTE: This application does NOT use or adjust the camera on the iPhone.

Great app to complement my camera!

Photo Helper is a very easy-to-use tool for people who want to learn about other settings than automatic on their camera and it has a cool feature for those who want to experiment on their own by allowing the user to set his/her own settings and advising how well the photo will look with those settings. It is really simple to use and I love all the extra details that make its use even easier than other photo apps, such as the option of using US or metric system. I have been taking photos for a long time and want to become a serious photographer and this tool has helped me understand how to better use my camera and how to get the pictures the way I want them. I truly recommend it to everyone who’s interested in getting the most out of his/her camera.

5/5 stars

A must for people wanting to master the manual modes of SLRs

I am a "photographer-want-to-be" and I am always looking for a way to get better pictures. I figured there had to be an app that could help and came across this one. I bought and have to say, I am very happy I did. It was easy to use and accurate in helping me take some homecoming pictures, as well as pictures at a swim meet. It helped me choose an ISO, aperture and shutter speed and they worked great. Then, I decided to make some changes because I wanted a faster speed and I unlocked the recommendations and was able to see how far I could go. In short, I recommend it for the people that like me, are getting familiarized with the manual settings in their camera and want to take nicer pictures.

5/5 stars

Works just as advertised

Great app. It does just what it says it will do. I don't have to figure out how compensate when I make an adjustment. Over time, I'm learning how to use my camera better! Worth more than the $$!
