Hello, 

This is a question to everyone and Roger too. My question is during a blocking of a scene do you use Artemis or a Director's Viewfinder? Because Artemis is easier to show to the director the exact framing (because you can snap a shot) but it also looks a little bit silly running on set and shooting with a phone? 

Thanks

That depends on what you shoot.

For commercial I most use Artemis,For drama I use director viewfinder.

For scouting I use Artemis, although I also carry a very small viewfinder. I usually use the shooting lens on the finder.

What viewfinder do you use?

We use a modified iPad holder that allows us to put our film camera lenses on it and frame up using Artemis.
