Artemis Director’s Viewfinder has come to the Android!

 In Apps

When I first got my iPhone, I didn’t think of it as a filmmaking tool.  But then I came across an amazing app, and suddenly my perspective changed completely.  I suspect that same revelation is about to hit the thousands of Android owning filmmakers around the world.  Why?  Because Artemis Director’s Viewfinder has come to the Android.

Artemis ($29.99) is an awesome digital replacement for the traditional director’s viewfinder. I’ve been using it on set for well over a year.  Users simply select their camera type, shooting format, and lenses. Then, Artemis uses the Android’s built-in camera to simulate the desired focal length. Users can flip between lenses, save screenshots, and made well informed decisions about camera setups.

Take a look at the video below to watch Artemis in action on an iPhone (it behaves the same way on Android).

Android owners, your smartphone just got brilliant!

    Will the Artemis remote for iPad work with Artemis for Android? I would assume so, but I didn’t see anything on the Chemical lWedding website…

    Great question! I’ll see what info I can dig up.

    Actually, I have an answer! I acquired Artemis for my Droid2 and discovered that currently there is no option to do so.

    Thanks for offering to look into it.

    Well, as you already discovered, the Android app won’t link with Remote. Just got the official word from the developer. Oh, well.

    Follow up question, since you’re in touch with them: Will it ever?

  • Taz Goldstein

    The developer said it may be possible, but I don’t think they’ve made any steps in that direction. I’ll post more if I learn anything else.

  • Yes! We’re working on the Android version connecting with Artemis remote on both Ipads and Android Tablets (Xoom, Galaxy Tab, etc..).

    Will keep you posted for the release.
