I'm not a fan of using a number to represent a camera, lens or accessory, but ... external pressures have led me to do so. You will now find product ratings, represented in stars, near the top of many of the site's reviews.
If you've ever used DOFMaster online, then you will be immediately familiar with what this app can do. Plug in your variables such as camera sensor size, focal length, aperture and subject distance, and the app will tell you how much depth-of-field you can expect when using those variables.
gps4cam allows you to geotag your images using your phone or tablet's GPS. The neat thing about gps4cam is that your phone and your camera's dates and times don't have to be synchronized in order for it to work. The program uses a QR code (the last image captured should be the QR code) to properly synchronize the track log with the times that the images were captured. Download the free gps4cam Desktop Client (click on "Downloads") on the gps4cam website.
The Photographer's Ephemeris is a fantastic little app that can show you the sun or moon's position in the sky for any date, time and location. I used the app today to find out where the sun would be in the sky during a wedding ceremony I will be photographing next month. It's also incredibly handy for planning landscape photography trips, too.
Easy Release - Model Releases is an app I've used many times. The app generates model or property releases on your phone. You simply fill in the variables (Shoot Name, Location, Date, Subject Info, etc) and a release is automatically generated. Once generated, signatures using the phone's touchscreen are required to complete the process. Once complete, a PDF of the release can be emailed to the Photographer and/or the model/property owner. The releases generated by Easy Release are approved for use by Getty Images, iStockPhoto and Alamy.

"TOKYO SKYTREE® went into operation on May 22, 2012, as a broadcasting tower for digital terrestrial broadcasting and as a general tourist facility designed to promote local development. At a height of 634 meters, it is currently the tallest free-standing broadcasting tower*1 in the world. TOKYO SKYTREE was entered in the Guinness World RecordsTM as the "world's tallest tower" on November 17, 2011.
A multi-camera control system from Nikon Systems Inc. has been installed on one of TOKYO SKYTREE's observation levels for the purpose of photographing and filming the spectacular panoramic view of Tokyo. This system has been photographing the 360° panoramic view continuously since TOKYO SKYTREE went into operation." ...
"The Multi-Camera Control System consists of 12 D3S digital single-lens reflex cameras installed on TEMBO DECK, the observation level at 340 meters, that continuously photograph the 360° view 24 hours a day. The images that are shot are transmitted to PCs in TOKYO SKYTREE's server room. This is where the images are stored and the camera settings are made. The interval between photographs can be set to any duration of not less than 30 seconds. The current settings are for 10-minute intervals between photographs during the daytime and 60-minute intervals at night. However, there are times when the interval will be purposely reduced—for events such as the Sumida River Fireworks Festival or when images of particular interest such as photographs of rainbows, lightning and typhoons are anticipated."
"Not content to just turn paint into a power source, revolutionize headphones, suck pollution out of oceans, bestow us with hyper-fast upload times, and pretty much anything else you can dream up, graphene is at it once again. And this time, the supermaterial that keeps on giving is opening the door to better low-light photos in the form of an image sensor that can catch light 1,000 times better than traditional sensors. Oh, and it uses 10 times less energy, too."

May 2013 - For Spanish photographer and filmmaker Mikel Prieto, a commission from Maserati to produce a two-minute film and a set of still images for its new GranCabrio Sport and GranCabrio MC cars was to put him and his Cinema EOS C300 to the ultimate test. CPN writer Pablo Carballo finds out more…
Mikel Prieto had heard a lot about the EOS C300 but had never actually used one before the Maserati shoot. “When we got the job with Maserati the C300 hadn’t been out long, so we were eager to work with it, to check its quality, to find out more about the much-talked gamma curve and so on,” he recalls. Its performance left him more than happy. “The resulting quality was stunning,” he reveals.
