“What’s the dynamic range of the Red Epic?”

“Can Adobe Premiere work with DPX files?”

“How much Canon 5D footage can I fit on a 64GB card?”

“What formats support alpha channels?”

If you’ve ever asked one of these questions, this is the app for you. Search from over 40 cameras with a list that includes Arri, Canon, Red, Sony, Blackmagic, Panasonic, and GoPro. Or browse by format, from common standards like ProRes and DNxHD to older ones like MPEG-IMX and Betacam.

Comprehensive information and compatibility

Dig deep into each camera and format, with a wealth of information such as dynamic range, sensor size, native ISO, supported resolutions, frame rates, bit rates, chroma sampling, and more. You’ll also see how well it performs with the latest version of Final Cut Pro, Premiere Pro, and Avid Media Composer.

Fully-featured calculator

Use the versatile calculator to find out how much footage you can fit on your camera card or hard drive– or how much storage space a given amount of footage will take up. You can also calculate audio, and share your calculations!
