The iPhone and iPod Touch shines again as a tool for the Cinematographer and the Lighting Designer.In past postings I called the iPhone and the iPod "The Swiss Army Knife for the Cinematographer" given to the many new apps available to the operating cameraman, director of photography and lighring designer. For the Camera Department, we count with the Depth of Field (DOF) Calculator, the Footage Calculator, the Aspect Ratio Calculator, the Lens Angle Calculator, and a gaffer's delight, the Power Load Calculator.

For the Lighting Department, the Rosco iGobo for iPhone and iPod Touch is the perfect tool for lighting designers, technicians and creative directors on the go. Containing the entire Rosco gobo library of more than 2300 images, iGobo makes it easy to browse, compare and select steel, glass or effects gobos, black and white or color, no matter where you are -- in your studio, at the tech table, in a design meeting or even in transit. iGobo uses the familiar look and feel found on the Rosco Gobo Website and printed catalog, with gobos sorted into helpful categories and shown along side similar, related images. The app defaults to the same order and layout found in the Rosco Gobo Catalog, but you can re sort by gobo code or name or by category
Your most recently browsed gobos are always available for review in case you want to go back to something you know you saw before. A comprehensive table of keywords helps you to zero in on the right gobo. Choose any 2 gobos to compare side by side, replacing one or both images quickly and easily. When you find something you like, add it to a Favorites list so you can recall it at another time. Make notes about how you might use it, or on what project. Finally the powerful search finds gobos by name, code, category, keyword, designer name or even the DHA gobo code familiar to many designers in Europe and Asia. And of course all of the iPhone’s magical gestures have been implemented allowing you to flick back and forth among gobos, rotate or reposition them with a simple twist of your finger and double tap into new screens.
