Artemis Director’s Viewfinder is an indispensable tool for filmmakers. It replaces the traditional viewfinder that would hang from a director’s neck, with a more convenient form factor and far more accurate and adaptable feature set. It is now the most used director’s viewfinder in modern filmmaking.

After selecting a camera format and lens grouping, Artemis simulates the field of view of the lens you might use on your shoot. You can either compare lens selection in a wireframe view or the specific focal length you've chosen in zoom view.

Artemis allows for the saving and sharing of images, recording crucial shot data—like GPS coordinates, tilt angle, bearing, focal length and camera format. There is also a facility to save your own notes alongside each saved image. When it comes to planning a shoot or creating storyboards, there is no more powerful tool.

  • Artemis is a great viewfinder. I use it a lot when scouting. And since it's very accurate you can show a frame to whoever needs to see what the shot will be or could be....and discuss it.

How Wide does it go?
Previously, Artemis had only one limitation and that was the field of view of the camera on the device. In the Super 35mm sensor format, the widest lens you could view is around 22mm. For lenses wider than this we had to add image padding to help you visualize that frame.
But all that has changed...
iPro for Artemis
Made in conjunction with Schneider Optics, the iPro extends the lens range of Artemis dramatically. Using the specially designed Super Wide angle adapter Artemis will reproduce as wide as 12mm in the Super 35mm sensor format. With the 2x extender, lenses as long as 400mm can be viewed. This makes Artemis the only viewfinder with a lens range this extensive.
