MacWorld / iWorld 2013: Daylight Viewfinder for iPhone & iPad

In keeping with today’s theme of accessories that help you see your screen better, I’d like to RE-introduce you to the Daylight Viewfinder for iPhone and iPad. This portable eyepiece sticks to the surface of your device like a suction cup, and helps you shoot videos without any annoying screen glare. To make this magic happen, the viewfinder is paired with a free Daylight Viewfinder app.

I first covered this gizmo back when it was the focus of a Kickstart fundraising campaign. Although the campaign failed to reach its funding goal, the project moved forward regardless and has resulted in a shipping product — $29.95 on the developer’s website.

Shang-Chi Director Directed From His iPhone

I enjoyed reading this brief ScreenRant story, so I thought I’d share it here. It describes how Destin Daniel Cretton, the director of Marvel’s Shang-Chi and The Legend of the Ten Rings, was forced to direct an important scene via his iPhone while in the hospital for the birth of his child! Sadly, it doesn’t divulge the details of that unusual workflow, but it’s an excellent reminder that we’re all toting the world’s most versatile piece of filmmaking gear in our pockets and purses!
