Crown + Flint: The digital companion for analog photography

My pocket computer helped me get accurate exposures, which was very encouraging, especially for a beginner like me.

But as my camera collection grew, I began to lose track of my film. “What film’s in this camera, and did I mean to shoot it at box speed, push, pull, or over-expose this roll?” — this became an inevitable row of questions whenever I picked a camera. Someone with a better long-term memory might’ve remembered everything for months across 7+ loaded cameras, but that isn’t me, unfortunately.

As soon as I shot my first film rolls, I fell in love with the whole experience. However, coming from the digital world, I found myself missing the metadata part, also called EXIF, embedded into digital images.
