Artemis Director’s Viewfinder is an indispensable tool for filmmakers, replacing the traditional viewfinder we used to see hanging around a director’s neck. Artemis is more accurate, adaptable and feature laden then any traditional director’s viewfinder. It is the most used director’s viewfinder in modern filmmaking.
After selecting a camera format and lens grouping, Artemis simulates the field of view of the lens you might use on your shoot. You can either compare lens selection in a wireframe view or the specific focal length you've chosen in zoom view.
Artemis allows for the saving and sharing of images, recording crucial shot data like GPS co-ordinates, tilt angle, bearing, focal length and camera format. There is also a facility to save notes of your own alongside each image you save. When it comes to planning a shoot or creating storyboards, there is no more powerful a tool.
What cameras are covered?
Artemis has been field tested with nearly every camera in our database to make sure that the field of view is correct. With digital film cameras we found that relying on sensor size data from camera manufacturers is not always wise. We work hard to make Artemis as accurate as we can.
Over 100 motion camera formats are included:
All anamorphic film formats from 8mm - 65mm
Super 35mm sensor size (ARRI Alexa, RED Epic etc)
⅔”, ½” & ⅓” sensor size
DSLR cameras in video mode, both DX and FX sized sensors
We also offer stills camera formats, in both film and digital, from the Minox to 10” x 8” plate cameras.
If your format is not currently in our list, we have a custom camera function that will allow you to reproduce any camera, aspect ratio and lens combination you desire. There is even a facility to send us this data so we can expand our database of camera formats. If it’s a camera, we can reproduce it’s field of view.
If you find a format that's important to you is missing let us know and we'll do our best to add in in the next update.
How wide does it go?
Artemis has only one limitation and that’s the camera in your iPhone's or iPad. In the Super 35mm sensor format, the widest lens you can view is around 24mm. For lenses wider than 24mm we add image padding to help you visualize that frame.
To remedy this limitation we now offer the iPro for Artemis system. Made in conjunction with Schneider Optics, the iPro extends the lens range of Artemis dramatically. Using the specially designed Super Wide angle adapter Artemis will reproduce as wide as 12mm in the Super 35mm sensor format. With the 2x extender, lenses as long as 400mm can be viewed. This makes Artemis the only viewfinder with a lens range this extensive.
Artemis is used the world over by professional filmmakers on projects as diverse as Game of Thrones and Gravity and was even mentioned in Time magazine. In the hands of a professional its an indispensable tool that has become a corner stone of film making in the digital era.
