Steve's Digicams App Giveaway: LightTracWant to win a copy of the LightTrac App for your iPhone or IPod Touch? We are giving away 10 copies of the app courtesy of the awesome folks at Rivolu! LightTrac is a tool that allows photographers to plan their outdoor photo shoot ahead of schedule to get the perfect shots with optimal lighting conditions. The app isn't limited to your current location as you can plan out shoots in multiple locations around the world if you are a travel photographer.
To plan the perfect shot, you use a slider at the bottom of the app to adjust the time of day and the app updates the screen with the current angle / elevation of the sun at that time. There are also two other line indicators on the screen that illustrate sunrise and sunset. To get more in-depth information, click the information icon (i) to get the exact times of sunrise / sunset, twilight dawn / dusk, moon rise / set, moon phases and the length of the day.
In the main map, you can switch between Google's satellite and regular map view. You can also save time / GPS locations of your particular picture in case you want to revisit that spot in the same lighting. Furthermore, you can change the date in the app to plan a shoot days, weeks or even months in advance for planned events like weddings or the big game. The app even allows you to email locations to your photog friends by using the export function, as well as import locations from your contact list. The app also works in both vertical and landscape view.
To enter, simply go to our Facebook page, like us (if you haven't already) and leave a comment on the giveaway post. It's that easy! http://www.facebook.com/stevesdigicams (Contest ends on Friday, April 29th 12 p.m. PT)
