Description

PhotoBuddy is your personal assistant in all photographic matters. It provides convenient ways to help professionals and amateurs calculate some of the most needed camera settings.
If you run PhotoBuddy on your iPhone you can use the built in camera to determine distances for objects of known size. The provided grayscale gradient can help you set the white point of your photographs, and the exposure presets get you started very quickly in the most common lighting situations.
