Small bug: The FoV calculator in the android app shows the image height is greater than the width, when using DSLR with 4/3 sensor. Tried to report on your web site but the feedback form failed.

Alan Sach

Best I've seen This cool little app has dozens of useful tools for focus, hyper-focal distance, exposure, sunny 16 calculator, blue and golden hour, moon phases etc. All in only 1.9M that can be moved to the SD card! Problem is the lens selection for DOF skips some VERY common lenses, such as 500MM, 18MM etc. Hopefully we will see this corrected in an update, especially the 500MM. EVERYBODY I know has a 500MM! Five stars if you add that.

Stan Wright

Junk - Does Not Work Will not allow to do setup. keeps saying "Problem Retrieving Items" when trying to select your camera & lens types. Don't have much patience for incompetence and poor programming. Deleted this junk off my device.

Nick Blenderman

Needs a grey card plug in for WB. A grey card would help a lot when we forget ours at home. I personally do not use a grey card, but I'm sure many people would love this feature! Thanks.

Rik Ryall

Nice concept, but... Currently broken for me as it pops the following error when trying to configure cameras and lenses: "Problem retrieving items". This, along with comments for the "Pro" version suggests that this app is not currently supported by the developer which is a great shame.

Monica Salkill

Had to delete this app... This provides far to detailed a description of any persons where abouts, I can't risk posting pics of my kids for perverts to pinpoint. Need an option to turn off location please! Would love to use this app if not for that small but vital detail.

Peter Chatten

Error DOF calculation There is a considerable discrepancy between the dof/hyperfocal calculation given by PhotoTools and by the official Canon website calculator and other apps. Not sure if there are other errors in the software but this instance does not give confidence in the product.

Chamal Gajaweera

Wow Wow where 's Canon 6d. I got 6d and I am very disappointed to see this. I am better proud with grey card

Kah Wai Ng

All in 1 Fantastic app whereby it has all the photographer needs.

Deby Shirley

I could not find the information I was looking for. I am sure for the very experienced person this would be great. But for the beginner it was like reading Chinese in the English language. But thank you anyway.

A Google User

Not really usefull Lots of pretty basic, and generally useless information. Light meter is totally inaccurate on nexus 5. Most other functions aren't really that usefull

C Sab

If you're not an advanced photographer, don't bother. No way for beginners to know how to use this app. No tutorial, or anything like that.

Joanne Lyons

Brilliant! This is a really helpful app! So glad I got it. Upgrading ASAP. Great work!

Cody Hudson

Doesn't work Only a few things work. Timelapse calculator is worthless. Always saying trouble calculating. Wouldnt even pay .99

Richard Harlos

m43 cameras get no love? I'd enjoy using the tools described in this app if they supported mirrorless micro-four-thirds cameras. I shoot with a Panasonic Lumix G3 but all I see in the pulldown are Canon & Nikon brands (plus some alternate format cameras). Uninstalled.

Steven Beard

Buggy and unreliable The camera list is out of date: Nikon D610 not included, so I had to try the nearest equivalent. The app often crashes for no apparent reason, and it always reports "problem retrieving items" when I access the lens list. The hyperfocal distance calculated by this app also differs from all the other apps I have tried. I don't trust it.

Gabriel hernandez

Excellent Excellent app if you know what you are doing! Otherwise, it may be a little hard to get the hang of it.

Tim Harlow

Can't figure What camera is this use for, the camera that's already on my phone?

Sir Maurice

Photo Tools Lots of info in one app. Mostly accurate.

shahab B.Amer

One of the best Very useful program and have all I need.thank you so much.

Aicon Segui

awesomw but how do you use this?

James Scott

Lots of great features I was surprised at how many features it has

Dmytro Antypov

didn't work quirky menu, crashed within first minute

Anton Yakovlev

Good! Dof tool: If a distance is greater than the hyperfocal "after" is showed negative (i.e. -9,5 m)

Erick Respondo

How do you use this?

sonu nigam

Sonu nigam This is a nice app

A Google User

Good idea Complete and keep adding good feature plz.if can make the graycard really work that awesome.what if graycard with our different brightness?


I just love this app!

salam ahmadi

Wow Aw aw awsome.... Thumbsup

nilolao Lao

Nice Very useful application try it

Jun Joe Monares

The best yet Very useful. Handy. Many thanks.

fs bhullar

It's good Try it...

Alexander Gonchar

All in one. Multitool for photographers. All in one. Multitool for photographers. There is an error in the DOF calculator: changes of the sensor size with constant aperture, focal length and focus distance affects the resulting DOF. At least for Nikon F mount. No needs to apply crop coefficient because the Flange Focal Distance stays constant among the all cameras with the same mount type no matter of sensor size.

Dmitriy Kodanev

Good app I could help in translation to Russian, 'cos I had some practice in this kind of work, contributing some open source projects.

Жорик Красногородцев

Add Russian and I'll add star :)

Stanislav Palyul

Russian language Please add the Russian language.


Good Add Russian language please -> I will pay after overpatching.

Р Ва

Ok. Very usefull.

Пользователь Google

Hi Please, add Russian language!

James Austin

New installation. Starts, then all I get is "Problem retrieving items". Menus blink when touched. Nothing works. All my other apps work okay. Samsung Galaxy SII

Simon J Coyle

very poor failed to download assets, failed to see my own photo albums, fail period

Steven de Bruin

Contains most useful tools Love the app. Has almost everything, except ND filter calculator.

Subbulakshmi SK

Muthu krishnan Awesome

Wilton McGhee

Extremely limited camera options I gave poor ratings because only Canon and Nikon cameras are listed, this is poor. Even if the idea was support for only DSLRs we have Pentax and Sony that still makes these. Time was taken to add individual cameras you could add other manufacture. Has potential for those who have one of those cameras, but only of limited user to me.

Mohammed Ishaq

How to use this and what is the use of this

Mindy M.

Helpful but... Don't add a description to the default checklists. All the items on the lists disappeared! A starter source list would be helpful check how "Our Groceries" handles lists/list items and imitate that. It's really useful for creating new lists.

Chris Kattner

Useless exposure calculator Why on earth does the the exposure calculator stop at 30 seconds and then tell me to use bulb? I need the calculator to tell me how long to press the shutter when on bulb setting. This is just meaningless, its not a camera its a calculator. Bulb serves no purpose here.

Captain Packrat

Numbers are way off Not sure where this app is getting it's numbers, but for the Samsung NX2000 at least, the DOF & FOV answers are all wrong.

akhuetie silver

This application is not working on my phone. Please i dont understand it.


Great potential but unstable Just loaded app and it has bombed 5 times within 10mins

Derald Grimwood

EXIF Needs more EXIF data. Very handy toolkit.

Abdul Majid

Coverage Assuming your access to only two camera brands there is no other good camera system to mention? Take a look around there are more and far better camera systems. Even 1 star is to much to credit this app.

Jeff Rulifson

Great Start, But... Great start. However, random crashes gets automatic 1 star reduction. Missing simple exposure calculator, my favorite tool, another 1 star reduction. Including golden hour gets 1 star added.

Tony Fernandez

Luv It! Great app and the wedding check list..are u kidding me! Nice add on. Really pleased with the calculators included in this app, especially the radius sharpening calculator. This is the Swiss army knife of all photo tools.

Chippy McBunbun

Awkward. Prime example of why engineers should not design user interfaces.

Skyox Dsuza

Can any1 teel me hoe to use it..its jst showing a lst of how to see wht tht do??..hlp plzz

Miles Beck

Crashes on Blue and Golden hour calculator Tapped Blue and Golden Hour Calculator on my Nexus 6P and the app crashed.

John Locker

Very useful A very comprehensive photographic tool. Free and no Ads. Love it

Ram Gurung

THANKS Really nice application


Crashes constantly or many error messaged I have used this app a lot. It was good but now it crashes every time I try blue hour. Other selections cause error messages. Too bad. I really liked it. I have new S7 galaxy phone. Phototools version 6.7.0

Les Snell

It was good for a while but unfortunately I can no longer see any Cameras in the database. Android 4.4.2 and Samsung S5 and Phototools 6.7

David Bird

Does not fully work on stock Android Features involving camera+exif do not work on stock Android 6.0.1. I am running stock on Nexus 6. And no cameras or sensors are listed.

Mischa Bachmann

No cameras in list Just downloaded and reinstalled app several times. There are no cameras in the list to chose from.

Rajeev VD

Useless app Showing as Loading.. bt never loads !!

nick nick

must have great tool

Travis Reed

Great selection of tools GOOD: The exposure calculators alone make this app worth the space on my phone. Then there are the checklists, enlargement calculator, moon phase calculator, weather, the list goes on. BAD: The built in list of cameras and lenses is great. I would just like to be able to filter that list via checkboxes instead of deleting the entire item. A small flaw in an otherwise amazing app.

Rowley C

Very good but... Wonderful comprehensive tool kit. Unfortunately the exif tool has stopped working on my new Samsung 7 Edge with an error message that it cannot connect with the camera.

John Finlayson

Can't set camera type Can't seem to select any canon cameras, and it keeps the GPS active so drains the battery, help web site not reachable so gave up.

Kerry Perkins

What? Used to work, now no cameras or lenses. Useless.

Robert M

Useless Cannot add cameras or lenses so none of the calculations work.

Shaun Ho

there's no camera or lenses in the list now, worked perfectly previously.

Geo Kar

Useless... Database contains NO cameras or lenses

Gabriele Arecco

Very nice, a ND filter exposure time with ND exposure time calculated from the exp time without ND would be a nice addon.

Michael Stakelum

No cameras This seems like it could be a great app but right of the mark I'm having problems. There are no cameras in the database. Is there something I'm missing or is this a bug? I'm looking forward to getting some feedback. Thanks. Galaxy Note 4 running Android 5.1.1

Muhammad Yousuf

Crashes Crashes right at the beginning. Never was able to start, let alone run it.

James Nord

No camera or lenses Used to work fine on old phone, but no camera or lenses are in the remote database anymore. HTC 10

Jacqueline Boshoff

Moon phase exposure calculator not working for some time now
