After the stricter rules of the Appstore we no longer want to sell the OSX version there. It would take a serious rewrite of the program. Another reasons is that almost everyone wants to have the program on a portable device so we focus on the mobile versions.
Since everyone seems to prefer the Filmcalculator on his mobile device we are ending support for the Windows version and possible later on also the Mac OSX version. On special requests we might send the version but will no longer support it with updates.
In version 1.9 of the Filmcalculator for iPhone and Android, the Database containing the lenses, lamps and filmstocks are located on this webserver. The Filmcalculator for iPhone / Android will check for updates and update the internal local database when it detects changes. It means when we add a new lens on the website, it will immediately be updated on all devices. No waiting for software updates in the Appstores anymore and every change will work for everyone.
Big plans for v2.0 will include images for all items, Format database on website and more.
The Filmcalculator version 1.8 contains a new lens database with over 800 lenses.
Thanks to the work of Richard Bradbury, there is a whole set of details like minimum focus, max. aperture but also weight, size and front diameter available.
The Mac/OSX version and the iPhone version are already updated and available in the Appstores. The Windows and Android version will be update soon!
In version 1.8 of the Filmcalculator we have added a calculation called Camera File Size in the General Menu.
It will show you (roughly) what to expect to use on disk space when shooting digital camera like RED and Alexa.
Hopefully we will add more camera's to the list in the next update.
