Ansel Adams dedicates the beginning of his first book "Taos Pueblo" to visualization. He introduced the idea of "previsualization", which involved the photographer imagining what he wanted his final print to look like before he even took the shot. Of course there are many great photos which were taken impromptu. However, for landscape photographers, being able to previsualize the scene before going there will greatly reduce the chance of being caught unprepared and will greatly increase the chance of getting better shots.
Photographers use various tools to help them pre-visualizing the scene. Nowadays, many of those tools are phone apps. PlanIt! is all-in-one solution that is designed to leverage the map and simulated viewfinder technologies (VR, AR etc.) to provide the necessary tools for photographers to pre-visualize the scene in combination with the Sun, Moon, Stars and Milky Way. Some questions that you might ask yourself before going out for a photographing trip are:
* Where is the Sun or the Moon at the time and the location and to see the animation of the Sun/Moon/Stars/Milky Way movements as in real?
* When and which azimuth is the Sunset or Sunrise today or on any date at any location around the world?
* Where should I go to get a nice view of the scene and possible compositions?
* Do I get a clear view of subject from a certain location where is no mountain blocking the view?
* What lens should I bring in order to capture the whole width or the height of the scene?
* If the scene is too wide, how many shots do I need to take to create a panorama and how many angle should each shot cover and how many angle should I rotate the camera between each shot?
* How do I compose the scene considering the subject’s elevation and the sun or moon location?
* Is tonight a good time for star trail photography? How long can I exposure without being affected the rising moon? Where should I aim at the sky to get the Polaris at the center?
* What are the dates and times to have Milky Way at certain position on the sky?
If you are interested in the answers of any questions above, the PlanIt! is the right app for you. In a simple app, we included Tools feature for you which allow you to find out GPS coordinates, elevation, distance, elevation gain, direct view, focal length, depth of field (DoF), hyperfocal distance and panorama, and all of those are represented to you visually on the map and sometimes in a simulated viewfinder. In addition, the Ephemeris features include the sunrise, sunset, moonrise, moonset time and location, twilights, special hours of the day, position of the Sun and the Moon, Sun/Moon Finder, more than 100 stars (such as Polaris) azimuth and elevation angle, star trail planning and exposure time calculation, time-lapse and hyperlapse calculation, milky way searching, exposure/ND calculator, light meter, bub timer etc. Again, all of them are either represented on the map or in the viewfinder. You can even use existing pictures in the viewfinder to explore with new photographing ideas.

Now with GPS based declination calculation!
EV(+/-) : Use this to add light or reduce light in your shot.
WB: Use this when you are not getting proper/real colors, for example when shooting in CFL lighting change the WB to desired till you get correct colors.
Focus Mode: Change this when you want to take Macro(close) shots, or Infinty/Landscape/Scenery shots.
Flash: You can use Torch mode in this app which allows correct colors and light, much better then auto.
Effects: Change effects which will be displayed live in preview and your shot.
FutureCam provides easy to use UI to change all settings available in your phone camera, change most of the setting quickly to take great pictures.
EV adjustments, White balance adjustments, Focus and Flash modes, also live color effects supported by your phone camera hardware are changeable at one go.
Bluetooth headset can be used as a remote to capture images, just click the play button on Bluetooth headset.
You can also use Volume down(-) key to take image (for taking selfies easily)
Press and Hold Volume down (-) button to take continuous images.
Image viewer and editor is also included to quickly preview, edit and share taken pictures.
Torch flash mode is also available while taking still images, these gives better control over still shot expouser and color balance.
Unique Sliding shutter is used to start capturing video's.
Single tap on shutter click an image, while sliding it completely to left start video capture. This prevents accidental video capture.
Live effects can be applied to videos, similar to images, these effects will be recorded as displayed, no need to add effects in post processing.
Golden Ratio and Rule of thirds overlay is also included for better composition.
Swipe screen right to left to change overlay, golden ratio spiral direction can be changed with top down swipe.
**New Help Overlay is also added, you can swipe right to left to reach help overlay.
You don't need the camera guy to be a model.
Just turn the camera to your cute face, Pixme will count down automatically.
Let Pixme is your own personal camera guy and you won't worry any more.
No more touches leads less hand-shaking. Of course, much easier to get better quality photos.
1. Face shutte : Detecting faces to trigger the shot.
2. Manual shutte: Touch the screen to trigger the single shot.
List of tested devices:

This app supports a wide variety of Nikon and Sony DSLRs. However, please ensure that the JPEG or RAW file you loaded into this app is an unedited output from the camera.

By importing the images and perform the photo stacking steps without bringing a laptop.
The application will stack up all JPGs in the selected folder and save the resultant as the file name "result.jpg" or the name you choose in the same folder.
It requires large memory size for the apps to process 12-mega pixels images stacking.
Testing images is done by maximum images size from an EOS6D shooting with a microsd and processed by a Sony xperia Z handset. Time for stacking 600 photos approx. > 3000 seconds and may need 10% of the battery for the processing.
I make this apps for my trips as I would like to shoot some star trails photos but not to bring up a laptop as the camera was already a heavy stuff which take cost when traveling in plane. And I just think if there are guys would like to shoot for star trails considering to bring less equipments and share the star trails immediately after shooting just like me, so I share this apps.
A number of details increase or decrease the requirement for precision. Factors that require higher precision include: longer exposure duration, increased distance between the guide star and the edge of the imaging field, and declinations that approach the pole. Factors that tolerate more error include: shorter duration exposure, centering of the guide star and a smaller imaging field, and declinations that approach the equator.
Drift polar alignment via a guide camera and guide scope allows a precise measurement of the rate of movement of a guide star. By using tools to measure the drift rate during ALTITUDE and AZIMUTH adjustment phases of the drift procedure, a value of error can be calculated. Some drift alignment tools report this error in pixels or arc seconds.
After entering the values in the Imaging setup parameters menu, then entering the values of Declination and Exposure Duration on the main screen, the maximum allowable error is displayed. During drift alignment, the speed star movement should be recorded and entered as Measured Drift to determine current conditions.
Note: You can tap the parameter's description on the main screen to see a more detailed explanation for the corresponding value.
This tool allows an astrophotographer to better understand the limits of their setup, so that they can determine if a configuration is feasible.
