My stuff: plannings, points of interest and settings.




Learn: help and about.


Get the creative control over your shots.

A challenge to your imagination! Free your mind, be Creative!

It’s all about one thing: SHOOTING LEGENDARY PHOTOS! 

Pay attention to detail!

Get it right! Visualize the shot before you take it with the 3D AR Viewers. Adjust your frame for the best composition before you shoot. Use the 3D AR Viewers to visualize whether the sun, moon, celestial equator, Polaris, Milky Way will be at the desired position at the time of pressing the shutter. (PLANNER AR, SUN AR, MOON AR, NIGHT AR).

Control sharpness and framing.

Manage your plannings. Never waste an unmissable scene again. Create a To-Do list of planned photos and get to the location on time. (PLANNINGS)


Focus on creativity; leave the calculations to us, the math nerds. Predict sun, moon, celestial equator, Milky Way, Polaris … and calculate time lapse settings - equivalent long exposures - star trails simulations – max. exposure time to get stars as spots - settings for a desired level of sharpness - lens selection, subject distance for a desired framing - min. distance to subject to capture it - equiv. lens focal Length to produce same FoV.

Oriented to get results as fast as possible.

Oriented to visualize your calculations in augmented reality. Sometimes it is difficult to imagine what a number means. PhotoPills has been designed to show it to you through the 3D AR Viewers. Examples:


Once you've done all the DoF calculations that gives you the desired depth of field effect, use the AR view to visualize and measure in situ the following distances: subject distance, DoF near limit, DoF far limit and hyperfocal distance.


For a given camera, focal length, subject distance and camera orientation, you can visualize in augmented reality what you would capture in the photo. Tap on the screen and position your frame where you want. Reduce trial and error. Make sure you take the photo you want.

Visualize the shot before you take it with the 3D AR Viewers. Adjust your frame for the best composition before you shoot. Use the 3D AR Viewers to visualize whether the sun, moon, celestial equator, Polaris, Milky Way will be at the desired position at the time of pressing the shutter.
