Helios iPhone App

A friend wrote his first iPhone app, Helios. "Designed primarily as an aid to Cinematographers, Helios is an essential tool for any professional who needs to predict the position of the sun at a specific time and how that may influence the planning of a shoot." It's very pretty and has one of the better demo videos I've seen.

too bad its $30. i'll wait for a cheaper one as it is not something I'd really use (Martin Scorcese I aint)

This ain't no toy baby. This is a replacement for a desktop app that sells for $100 and you still need to buy a $70 inclinometer to make sense of the info it outputs. This app is a professional tool. On balance $30 is cheap for this level of functionality. Martin Scorcese wouldn't need Helios either. Not unless he has a new career as a Gaffer.

This is the most valuable App I have ever found. It saves me from the need to buy and carry other hardware and is of great help to me as aphotographer
