If you should have any suggestions, problems or questions about the Photographer’s Friend for iOS App, please drop us a line with the below form or tap on Contact Us under the Photographer’s Friend Links tab on your device to open up a new email to send us. Our email address will be in the new email ready to go.
Sending email on a device that does not use Apple Mail as a mail client will fail gracefully, offering a link to the online contact form.
In addition to the above changes, the Settings, Help & Links Tables now flash the scroll bar when selected to make it more obvious that there is more to see when scrolled.
You can now transfer your calculated exposure time from your iPhone to your Apple Watch and run the timer on the watch, along with countdown sounds and haptics so you’ll know when to stop our exposure without looking at your iPhone or Watch. Unlink the Watch Extension from the iPhone by tapping the chain link and you can select a shutter speed and total stops of ND filter to apply and calculate filtered exposure time with just the Apple Watch. From the settings screen (swipe from right to left) you can set a custom timer just for the Watch or send it to the iPhone if they are linked, and run the timer from either device. When linked, you can start and stop the timers on either device independently.
* Note that Apple Watch Extensions are paid Add-on Features
We have added a completely standalone, fully functional version of the Depth of Field Calculator for Apple Watch.
Has almost complete feature parity with the iOS version, including Pixel Peeper Mode and the same intense level of detail!
Double-tap the DoF Readout to transfer the Hyperfocal Distance to the Focus Distance Dial. The central data band is a teal color when the settings result in hyperlocal distance or greater. Long-press or triple tap to lock the Hyper Focal Distance link to the Distance Dial, indicated by gold background for central data band.
When the Extension is available, a watch button will appear on the DoF Calculator on your iPhone, which when pressed, transfers all of your DoF Calculator settings to the Watch and updates the DoF details accordingly.

We corrected a minor error in the sub-micrometer depth of field calculations.
This is a paid update as we’ve added an awesome third calculator.
