★★★★★ DV Magazine rates KataData 4.5 out of 5!
"A powerful and useful data calculator that may be the most intuitive i've ever used."

★★★★★ - Vince Laforet, Director/Photographer: "KataData is an incredibly graceful app that allows you to take the mystery out of all of these camera calculations (and avoid the inevitable headaches that come with.)"

★★★★★ Torrey Loomis, Silvarado Systems: “KataData data rate calculator from @KatabaticNY is nuts–totally awesome. You will need to RUN to the App Store when this gets released!”

★★★★★ Mike Seymour - fxguide/fxphd: "KataData on the iphone app store is great for digital cinematography card management/running times"

★★★★★ Jim Hare, Sydney Australia: "Absolutely brilliant! Have several multicam shoots coming up using Epics and R1s and this app will be essential for locking down Redcode ratios. Just bought and downloaded. Fantastic!"

★★★★★ Jason Diamond - Director/VFX Supervisor: "KataData is my must have app on set. From calculating runtimes when
shooting off speed, to estimating the amount of drive space we’ll
need. Love having it in my pocket."

•• Beautifully Designed for the Retina Display ••
We built a beautiful custom interface thats both flexible and easy to use.

•• Cameras and Codecs ••
Sometimes need to calculate by camera type, other times by codec. We’ve got you covered for both situations.

•• Flexible Input Units ••
We’ve taken input flexibility a step further by developing swipe gestures to convert between various input units such as Megabytes, Gigabytes, and Terabytes, or Frames, Seconds, Minutes, Hours, and Time-code.

•• Add Multiple Calculations Together ••
We know you sometimes shoot with multiple cameras, have mixed media in post, or simply need to calculate in batches. By clicking the plus button on the main interface, your calculation will be added to the logs which can be accessed by swiping down from the top of the screen.

•• Stereo and HDRx Support ••
