It is much easier to snap a pic with an accurate representation of your format and lens choice and pass your iPhone, email it or use Artemis Remote to transmit it right to an iPad for review, than it is to look over each other's shoulder and peer through a finger finder.
Viewfinder appears to have 2 advantages:
Accepts wide angle adapters. Artemis windows the available image within a frame guide to show wide angle views. It's OK, but if you want to see the whole frame Viewfinder might be the way to go.
It appears to have better organized menus. The GUI looks equally functional to Artemis, but the menus look more encompassing and neater. With Artemis to set the camera and lens info, you drill down through successive windows.
There is also a Panavision app, but it doesn't have many reviews and they are mostly negative. It includes sun tracking data which would be really nice to have included in either of the other two apps. For now I use Sun Seeker for that.
BTW you do understand that we are just having fun here, right?

Cut an (appropriate aspect ratio) aperture out of a piece of black card stock. Say about 6" wide aperture in an 8X10" board. Not sexy, but it's a surprisingly effective little number for quickly plotting framing, focal length, composition, camera moves, locations, and so on. ( :
Don't you think hand framing is useless unless you close one eye, which none of the people in those photos is doing?
