FiLMiC Pro－Video Camera Positive Reviews
Removed the promotional link in the main menu (y)The previous version has a promotional link front and center in the top-level main menu, which I think was inappropriate, in particular when there is also an Information / Support page which would have been perfect for that. That’s great. However the app still does not work with the Osmo Mobile 3 gimbal, which has been widely available everywhere for several weeks now. The app connects, but the gimbal functions don’t work, for example the Rec button on the gimbal changes the volume, zoom does nothing, etc, so the DJI protocol changes and Filmic currently lags a little behind. In addition to the obvious, it would be nice to add a tracking mode that controls the gimbal motion from the app, where we could drag an arbitrary rectangle anywhere in the frame, and the shot would keep whatever is there at that position in the frame (specifically, not necessarily centered!) - that would be the next level of awesomeness! Thanks for the update, yet already looking forward to the next one..Version: 6.9.8
Fantastic! But I'd love to see a few more crop guides!I really do love this app, and I don't want to come across as negative - this is THE best filmmaking app in existence, nothing is better when it comes to smartphone videography! But I have one feature that I would love to see in this app which would make it perfect, and that would be the option to film in more aspect ratios than what's currently available. I'd love to see 1.85:1 and 1.50:1 for example, but I have one very specific request, and that would be the ability to frame for a 1.66:1 aspect ratio - which was actually possible in previous versions of this app if what I've seen is correct - because this is my absolute favorite aspect ratio for filming my projects. I don't know how difficult this would be to add these feature into the app, but it would be my dream come true to see more crop guides introduced and a return of 15:9 (1.66:1). I hate to sound negative, especially when this app is already practically perfect, and I hate to go on about my personal issues instead of talking about improvements which could help everybody across the board (though hopefully other people would take advantage of these new crop guides, should they be added), but this would absolutely make my day. Thank you for all the work you put into this wonderful app!.Version: 6.10.9
Fantastic Investment.Personal use or business, this app WILL benefit you. If you're invested enough in the digital film age, this will prove useful someway, somehow. The cost of cameras and editing software ALONE should convince you to get this app. Live analytics, manual and auto focus, ease of access to change exposure, audio sensitivity control, guides, frame rate options, a company that listens and interacts with the community-- the list goes on, I couldn't be bothered. I WISH the native camera app on smart phones was this intuitive. The fact that I live in a day and age where I can practically have a movie camera in my pocket is astonishing, all for such a generous price (granted you have a phone at all. If you're reading this, I'm left to assume that you do). Buying this will NOT turn you into Christoper Nolan, but the HANDS ON advantages that this app provides you are a no brainer. Quentin Tarantino didn't have a movie maker in his pocket growing up. But YOU can.
As someone who strives to live in the entertainment industry, this is a must for me. I have gotten to experience so much from this app with my PHONE that I would not have otherwise experienced without investing in a thousand dollar camera.
If you're interested enough in film, are super low budget, and want an introductory taste? Buy this app now..Version: 6.10.6
You get 10 starsBest app on the market. I got some major ideas for this app. Send me your email. I’ve used many apps and this is flawless. I’m a reggae producer who started video recording. I use a gimbal. Filmic pro. Filmic remote. Mic and light using only my iPhone. The videos are speechless. But I see some ideas that could lock the market. Expand the lens to 6x like the app for my gimbal. Add under community access to sign in a Client to access their camera but record the video into my filmic pro. That way I can record people from around the world in high quality. Make the app access more features on the gimbals. And a story mode like the app for my gimbal. That stitches video together into a movie. I would give you 9000 stars. I compared a few footages from filmic and the iPhone camera. No comparison. Filmic is like having a expensive dslr camera in a iPhone. Ohhh another thing. Add filters in a in app purchase for the lens. Another thing I thought of. Under audio. Add access to iaa apps. Like MicSwap. And we can swap the mic in the video to different mics. And filmic would be Hollywood. Oscar. Etc etc..Version: 6.12.0
Bugs on iPhone XI purchased this app because I had heard many great things about it and I will say that I was very impressed with a lot of the tricks of this app has to offer. However what’s been disappointing me over and over again is it the app has been crashing when using high frame rates, and not even for that long of a period. It will freeze when entering the review portion of the app where I would view the videos I’ve taken. I’ve also had times where I am switching resolutions and the app goes into mirror mode, which I’m sure is not supposed to happen. The image becomes upside down and reversed left to right making it impossible to record until I shut down the app completely and sometimes even have to turn off my phone. I have had the focus and exposure dials randomly start turning on me and I’ve also had exposure settings changed even though I have had them locked in. Overall I’m pretty disappointed because I never had these issues with ProMovie recorder which was only three dollars and I had heard amazing things about this app. These bugs could get taken care of I would be 100% satisfied because there are a lot of great things this app provides but I’m just not there yet. Thanks guys..Version: 6.4.10
Indie Filmmaker Must Have App!I’ve been using filmicpro for years (back when the app was $1.99 and iPhone 4’s were all the rage!). I was excited about the idea of iPhone filmmaking then and made a number of projects for the iPhone film festival circuit. Then I stepped away from iPhone filmmaking to focus on other indie films with a variety of camera types (not mobile phone related.). After a few years, I came back to this app and iPhone filmmaking because I love the flexibility of it. I purchased the new $9.99 additional feature with LOG as a setting option and I have to say, I am SO SO pleased to see FilMIC pro has continued to update their app and make iPhone filmmaking more of a legitimate and credible option for the independent filmmaker! The newest features with adjusting the ISO, focus pull, light balance, etc is really awesome! With a few options in lens attachments in addition to this app I really love how versatile it is becoming. It’s still not going to give you the performance of a DSLR or studio level camera, but it is definitely a viable option for filmmakers now! And I love it!.Version: 6.5.0
The anamorphic filter is real!Great App. The in-app microphone is the best when compared to other video Apps, but I feel that the creators put to much focus on it. For example, I have manually turned off the mic multiple times only to close the App and return to it being engaged again. The quality and manual focus options are so smooth and have so much potential that this app partnered with a gimble steadycam could give the even the most pedestrian filmmaker into a national festival. I guess what I’m saying is that they should scrap the microphone entirely and enhance what is already the best focus and depth of field on the AppStore. Basically, if the quality of the footage is going to be as professional as it is, then it’s kind of bogus to assume that the microphone recorder is going to get the job done in post. Who are they appeasing? Wake up, yr not SnapChat...and that’s OK. I love yr app, though. Like I said, get a steady-cam or a cheap tripod and tell a story about something that explains how you feel about things because FILMpro is really killing it with quality..Version: 6.5.1
FilMic Pro: Sure, it’s at least worth the money.FilMic Pro is great with iPhones. On the iPhone 7 Plus alone, it’s able to shoot 120 Frames Per Second (FPS), and just imagine what it could accomplish with future smartphones. On the new iPhone 11, it can even shoot 240 FPS. That’s totally unheard of for any phone camera. One thing I would ask the developers to do is not limit all of FilMic’s functions to the iPhone 11 Pro. I mean, granted, I’m sure a lot of Apple fans have the Pro models, but some of the functions are restricted to just these fans that I speak of. For example, the iPhone 11, the phone which I currently have, has a wide and ultra wide camera. The FilMic app has no problem zooming in, but it will not zoom out. What good is and ultra wide camera if I can’t use it? The Pro model phones can zoom out in the app, though. Also, I would like to see automatic focus. The focus is only controllable by the app user, so this ends up with slight imperfections. Overall I enjoy using this app, and can’t wait to see what future updates can accomplish..Version: 6.10.4
Disappearing OptionsI think this will be a good option for B-roll in conjunction with my DSLRs using my DJI Osmo Mobile and iPhone. However, the analytics functions disappear. They are there for a second and then they’re gone. I don’t know if maybe it’s because I am using an older iPhone. Also, no 4K option. I know it can be done with an iPhone 5s. I have seen it done. I even have a $2.99 app installed that gets me useable footage that is just slightly less than 4K. Hands down FilMic Pro is the clear winner in the category of apps that can get you cinematic footage on your iPhone, just don’t forget about those of us that don’t upgrade our phones as often. If my disappearing options are not related to the age of my phone, I would love to know what is causing it. I would love it if I could even get 1440p but all I can get is 1080p. One other thing, I am running iOS 11.3 if that helps..Version: 6.4.10
Excited and scared, but your team is amazingWell I’ll just start off by saying this might be my first of a follow-up review that I’ll do on filmic pro. Although I am a content creator designer, musician and photographer I have finally been given the opportunity to develop a short feature film and I’ve been struggling due to the low budget whether or not I was going to do the project using FiLMiC Pro and my iPhone XS Max with the moment lens or eating the cost of getting a DSLR camera in the $1500 range. After testing with your software and with my phone and the Moment lenses I’m very excited about this project. Please continue to look for ways to improve the product wherever you can but I realize there’s only so much you can do based upon the hardware that Apple or any other phone developer puts into their camera and lens system. Stay tuned..Version: 6.8.1
Great but needs a few featuresI have been using this app for years and I love it, but it needs a few features. Number one the ability to switch between phone cameras at the push of a button on the main screen, not buried in a menu. Even better would be the ability to switch between different phone cameras without having to stop recording as can be done on the native iPhone camera app. Number two is independent volume controls of the left and right audio channels. Finally, and this may not be the fault of the app, but monitoring sound with wired headphones has a small latency delay. It’s annoying but not a dealbreaker. Wish there was someway to fix it..Version: 6.13.3
Great unless loses footage99% of the time (rough guess) footage gets saved and the app is great to control.
It reliably loses footage when phone shuts down mid shoot due to depleted battery, but that can be understood as an edge case.
Once after shooting a 2-hour timelapse (a frame each 30 sec) the footage haven’t gotten saved. App didn’t crash, battery was well in the green and storage plenty. Footage never appeared in Photos, seems to exist in app’s built-in roll as a corrupted entry, from where an invalid file can be saved to iCloud Files (I’ll try fiddling with it on laptop later). I don’t know whether it’s out of the realm of possibility given iOS APIs but as an engineer I would try ensuring the footage gets continuously recorded into a backup file which does not get deleted until the output is saved and double-checked. With a low-FPS timelapse like I often do there’s so little data to write even if it shoots for hours, maintaining 2 or 3 backup files simultaneously would not be an issue and could possibly save a whole lot of frustration.
Being able to shoot a timelapse with fixed ISO/exposure is great and something you can’t do with iPhone’s built-in timelapse feature.
White balance UI is not really clear when I use a white sheet—I hit the tiny AWB button and try to guess whether it worked or not as there seems little feedback..Version: 6.6.0
Seems Like There’s Much PotentialI don’t have time for many positives but I will say the app adds many features that the native camera app doesn’t have. I also get stunning footage in 24fps LOG.
What I Want (Using on iPhone 11 Pro):
60fps LOG as this is disabled
Shutter speed lock when switching lenses
Simultaneous shutter speed and exposure lock
Exposure lock when switching lenses
Easier way to switch between lenses
Easier rack focus mechanism
Zoom mode that auto switches lenses like the native app while recording
Zoom mode that allows me to quickly switch to 2x lens while recording
Frame drops in any frame rate to stop occurring
Easier white balance adjustments with lock and number input ability
ISO number input ability
Tap to focus option
Histogram overlay while recording
I have shot commercial videos with this app now multiple times and some videos on the side for fun. It is a major step up from the native camera app but I do not feel confident using this in a working environment as I am adjusting settings more often than shooting, missing many important shots as most of my work involves live events. For now, I will have to switch back to using my DSLR.
If the above list of features were implemented into the software my worries would be gone and I’d give this app a 5 star rating..Version: 6.10.4
Want pro video from your iPhone? Get this app!!!Writing an updated review.
The iPhone video camera is remarkably good. I’m using Filmic Pro on an iPhone 8+, and this app gives me manual control over just about everything. I can lock and manually control focus, exposure, and even color temperature. There are various profiles to shoot with that allow for better post-production color correction. I love how well Filmic Pro and LumaFusion work together as an acquisition/post suite, all on a single device.
The interface is well thought out and easy to use, once you get used to it. Being able to bring up focus peaking, zebras, and other overlays with a touch makes it remarkably easy to make sure I’m getting exactly the image I want. This app has allowed me to leave my DSLR home for many of my professional recording sessions.
I just added Filmic Remote to my toolkit. I’ve only used it in circumstances where I have a strong wifi network so far, but it works really well. It’s incredibly useful to be able to control the iPhone camera without touching it, and pretty much all of the tools you’d use in Filmic Pro are readily available in Filmic Remote. Well worth the price!.Version: 6.6.0
Amazing!Recently the updates have pushed this app to new heights! There is now no reason why I cannot get the results I want using this app!
I am a photographer and I come from the film world and understand all the basics of still photography technology. Now with this app I can fully control movie making process to the same high-level that I do in photography which is truly amazing because I am using an iPhone 7 to do this! Enjoy you will not regret it as long as you read the information try all the settings over and over Until you believe you know it! Then you will have it under your control it’s that easy!
The update keep coming and coming and coming software is getting better and better and better!.Version: 6.6.0
Great app. Would love if...I’ve been using FilMic for some time now and I have to say it is the best app for smartphones. There is one option that I would like though. The ability to control bigger gimbals like the Zhiyun Crane 3s. With all step up rings, filters, lenses and any other things put onto the phone, it gets heavy. Too heavy for my Movi Cinema Robot so I bought the Crane 3s. It works fantastically with it except for the fact that I cannot control anything through the gimbal. More and more people will start buying bigger gimbals for the reason above. So it would be great to have some support for the Crane 3s. Once again, I love what you are doing and can’t wait to see what’s in store for your ne t big update. Thank you..Version: 6.12.5
Works great!I hardly ever write reviews but Filmic really earned a great review. Works great on my iPhone 6s. A really well-designed and full-featured app that fit my need for creating a more professional video than what I could have done with the native camera app. I had a bit of a hiccup trying to get the already-paid-for pro Kit onto my iPad, but it turned out to be an Apple App Store UI issue. Even so, Filmic Support was super helpful and responsive and helped me get over that hurdle. One minor area for improvements I’d suggest — the linking between the Remote on my iPad and FilmicPro on my iPhone was slow to be recognized and the pairing disconnected once (I’ve used it in 2 sessions so far). That said, I’m very happy with the FilmicPro kit bundle. KUDOS to the Developers and to Support!!.Version: 6.4.7
App Doesn’t Open On iPhone X After 6.4.4UPDATE: I appreciate the response the Developer Team addressing the issue at hand, they were thorough in explaining what went wrong in great detail and that there are certain issues they cannot re-create in house, and they rely on long time users to relay any issues your differences they have found. Not a lot of developers take the time to explain what caused an issue and exactly every step to correct it with little to no interruption towards the projects you already have in progress. They even gave me a contact email if the issue wasn’t resolved after preforming those steps. I appreciate the FiLMIC team for the work they put in, back to 5 stars from me. Thanks guys.Version: 6.4.7
One perspective (hurry up and wait)Our arts NPO bought this app several months ago in anticipation of the dual-lens feature, and support for Osmo 3, eventually. It was made clear (those features) would be added in future updates. So I don’t feel misled, at all; in fact, I like the idea of something growing into its full promise, as it’s further developed.
With technology moving so fast, and with software driving the potential for hardware, it’s increasingly common for innovation to happen incrementally - after hardware and software are purchased. Personally, I think that’s really cool.
Anyways, I feel like some of the negative reviews trend toward hyperbole: I’m sure the developers are highly motivated to get updates right, and to get them out.
*Also, I’ve found the flickering issue to be remedied (IME) simply by using manual white balance, e.g. with the Filmic “locked in” color-temp feature. YMMV. We’ve only experienced the flicker when there’s a highly variable exposure (brightness) btw foreground and background.
We’ve gotten some really awesome results in very challenging environments, using this app. I like it a lot.
Here’s to future days..Version: 6.10.3
Issue with Filmic Pro and iPhone X/XS MaxFor some reason, there is something going awfully wrong, between the iPhone X/XS and Filmic Pro. The company has said they know about it and have issued the fix for it. But, whatever the fix was, that they think was the problem, in no way fixed our problem. I have a 5 camera set up, using 2 iPhones. I use my iPhone 6 Plus, to remotely control both the 7 Plus and the XS Max. 7 Plus, no issues. XS Max, sometimes, it’ll last a full 2.5 hour shoot. Sometimes, it’ll last only a few minutes. And, sometimes, it’ll last a good 20-30 minutes. It’ll continue recording the audio, even though no video has been captured, once it freezes..Version: 6.8.1
Stitch frustrating on iPadI want to love it, but it doesn’t work well for one thing I need it for: Quick stitched social media selfie videos made on my iPad. It has a stitch feature, but the record/pause button is in the far right bottom corner of the screen, so my eye has to track all the way down for me to see where to tap it. And, it often doesn’t respond to my first or even second tap, like it’s not registering unless I tap it exactly right. I can’t for the life of me figure out what’s different between a successful and unsuccessful tap. If I was using this on a smaller device, or if it allowed different positions for the record button, it would probably be great, but as it is I can’t use it for my most-needed, albeit very simple, use case. 😞.Version: 6.13.1
Go pro!Easily the best if not the greatest app in your arsenal of filmography. It’s like having two-face from Batman; it has a simplicity to it and when you want to go pro, bang it show its ugly side, there are more then advance features all within the same app. My only con I can express for this app is not having full support for my Shiyun smooth q. Given that most guys are gearing up with either the dji osmo or the shiyun smooth q you would think they would carry both brands to maximize profit but I sadly can’t say that. Other then that this app has replace my stock camera app. I would loudly suggest for anybody thinking of making this purchase to also consider acquiring LumaFusion. Great app guys keep it up!!!!!!.Version: 6.7.0
Presets Do Not SaveBasic settings such as: white balance and shutter lock do not save when creating a custom preset. So, even though you’ve gone through the work of saving these settings, you’ll still need to adjust them before each shot.
I don’t know of one videographer who likes to change the shutter speed in the middle of a shot. And I have to go into the settings to lock the shutter speed each time... bogus!
Also, there is no way to set a custom white balance. Once you’ve set your value and press the AWB button, it quickly changes to auto white balance and changes your set value. So there is no way to lock it on a set number.
Just some suggestions. Overall, this is a great app with great potential..Version: 6.10.3
Worth The TimeI love this app. I love how the developers are listening and continuing to frequently update the app to make it better.
Yes, it can seem a little intimidating at first if you’re not already a dslr pro, but it’s completely worth putting in just a little bit of time getting to understand the interface and the functions that you now have control over, and then remembering to shoot even random videos with it. Before you know it, you’ll be feeling super comfortable shooting with it, and when you go back to a native camera app, you’ll miss FilmicPro, because it’s just that flipping good!
Why wouldn’t you want to take advantage of every option your phone affords you to make the most beautiful and interesting video content that you can?
Stop reading. Get the app. If you’re already a shooter and understand color grading, the extra $ to get the “cinematographer’s package”, is more than worth it. It’s a must if you plan on color grading your footage, so get that too.
Seriously, these guys are great..Version: 6.14.0
Great app but could be betterI have been using Filmic pro for quite a while an I think this is a fantastic app for what it can do. However there are some limitations which I think can be resolved with updates. Like there is no overlay controls (Focus peeking, zebras, false color etc) if you switch to dolby HDR mode. It took me a long time to figure out where the controls were. You also cant do 4k 60fps if you choose 10bit or dolby HDR where as the native camera app can. I know dolby HDR was only introduced few months ago. I hope they will come up with a solution on the next update. It would be a waste not to be be able to use the full capability of ones camera hardware..Version: 6.13.1
Very Close to a Homerun...The things that this app can do are amazing. But I’m gonna let the advertisements tell you about that. I’m here to talk about what I don’t like, and then I’ll fix my review accordingly.
I shoot my mobile videos in short clips so they’re easy to edit.
I end up with a ton of small files. But Filmic can’t export very many at a time, and there is no confirmation as to whether the export was successful. So I’ll go to export 10 fifteen second clips and there will be no notifications as to if it even worked or not.
Then when I go to check photos I will have exported 3 of them out of order.
I’ve got the iPhone X. These things are the pinnacle of mobile technology. I know I’m pushing it to the max, but a confirmation of export or a defined file limit would be appreciated.
Also, get a deal with Zhiyun, so I can do subject following on my gimbal in Filmic.
I’d pay a few more bucks for a solid update. I know I’m already getting a lot of bang for my buck, and I’m thankful. But I’d love these to things to make it a truly elite product.
Especially when there are free apps with similar capabilities.
Thanks filmic!.Version: 6.5.0
A little miffedI’ve heard great things about this app and seen a lot of the things people can make with it so when I got a little money for the holidays I decided I was going to buy it. At the cost of $15 I thought I was getting the full app. I’m not thrilled to find out I have to spend yet another $15 to unlock the full app. Yes I should have read up on this but it would’ve been nice to know that before buying the app and having to essentially buy it again to get it all. Still a great app, just not thrilled with how I found out about the Cinematographer Kit. I’m also aware of how much other filmmaking stuff costs so it’s not the price I’m unhappy with. I’m more than happy to pay $30 but it would’ve been nice to know I was going to need to pay it from the beginning..Version: 6.8
Simply Awesome!I’ve tried a bunch of apps to film and this is the one I chose. It’s by far the best and easiest to use. Their support is also very responsive, friendly and incredibly informative. The only in app purchase is for the color profiles. I recommend getting it. All-in-all, the app is cheap, easy to use and just plain awesome!
I do have some items I’d like in my wish list for Filmic:
1: Options for Timecode. You only have it’s internal timecode. Cannot synching or jamsync.
2: Anamorphic desqueeze options. The desqueeze doesn’t look correct with the 1.33x setting. It’s not a deal breaker though. You can manually desqueeze in your editing software. You do have the option to desqueeze in just the preview or automatically desqueeze.
3: De Noise option does not work when recording footage at 4K 24fps. I think this should be a priority.
4: The remote app should work on older iPhones and iPads. I’d like to utilize my old devices for basic utilities like remote controlling the Filmic app.
Fantastic app though! I love using it!.Version: 6.12.5
Shutter speed lock?For anyone on the fence of buying this app, do it, it’s amazing and literally unlocks features on your phone that most of us would kill for to have in ALL mirrorless/DSLR cameras. It’s an amazing tool and well worth the money. With that said my only complaint would be for you guys to please change how the shutter speed lock/unlock currently functions and make it more failsafe or add an EXTRA step to unlock it. A setting that most of us would want to ALWAYS remain the same once set (shutter) is right in the exact vicinity of a setting that we will be constantly tapping and swiping to change throughout the shooting day (ISO) making the possibility of accidentally double tapping off the shutter lock very common..Version: 6.8
Multi-cam or multi-scam?I rushed to purchase this after seeing the multicam demo in Apple’s announcement video last year as soon as my new 11 pro arrived. Then I discovered the feature doesn’t exist yet. The blog said “coming by year end” though, so that didn’t sound bad. Then the year ended with no product update. Note their website says they “hope release it as soon as possible.” Well I would hope so! I also hope they realize that is in no way an answer.
Otherwise the app is quite good. Some features are unacceptable poor, though. Like the media tray that displays three files at a time, among other issues.
This app is not cheap. It should be better. And I sure wish the feature that entice me to purchase it would be released..Version: 6.10.7
Settings need workI have been using FilmIc Pro for a few years and I really love the quality of video that I shoot. I am finally giving much needed feedback. Presets deactivate frame rates if you make any change while it’s selected. For example, If I have a super slomo preset (240 capture/24 playback), if I select a different lens or tweak the color templates, it defaults to 24/24. Slomo disappears and you never know this until you play it back. Aggravating.
Also, setting up frame rates is a pain. Instead of arrows that you click 200 times in order to select 240fps, why not have a field where you type in a desired frame rate?.Version: 6.19.1
YupTaught foundational filmmaking with it and used it for this entire semester. Having shot with a Bolex for years and years, having this app in my pocket feels like shooting super 16 with nothing more than my copy of the ACH in my AC bag. Sigh, and it’s still all about knowing how to shoot, what a relief. Wish it had a real f-stop scale and an HUD of DOF as I shift focus and exposure. Rolling shutter seems to have disappeared. The crappy latitude typical with the iOS camera is expanded. And footage transcodes to MXF in the AVID beautifully. Sigh. Never thought I’d make movies again with all the time “convenient“ technology has stolen from me. Filmic pro is the real convenience. Add a single framing feature in app and I will actually sell my Bolex..Version: 6.7.5
Cling and distortion issueIt is great app, I am using it in iPhone X. but It starts hanging just in 5 minutes. Even, end recording button doesn’t work. You can think, if I have taken great shot and video doesn’t get saved in gallery then it will ruin whole effort! After very few minutes, app start to cling. Sometimes app is shooting video in faster speed automatically. It has ruined many great shots. In this condition, video saved in the gallery looks like distorted, just like if you are playing high quality video in cheap phone. In the beginning I thought it is my phone hang issue. But it is not. Everything else is fine. Fix that please..Version: 6.9.8
Great app, but issues connecting to the Osmo Mobile 2I have been using the app now for a few days and so far love it. I am blown away at all the manual settings I can now take advantage of. My only complaint is that Filmic Pro states that it is compatible with the Osmo Mobile 2 but I have been having some connectivity problems. For some reason whenever I click the record button on the Osmo Mobile 2, instead of starting the recording on Filmic Pro, the app starts cycling through it’s different manual settings. Although this isn’t a huge issue, it would be nice to be able to take advantage of the record button on the Osmo Mobile 2..Version: 6.4.6
They removed the color correction featureThe latest update for Filmic Pro removed the color correction feature from the clip library. Believe it or not, I did use that feature for quick color adjustments. Now I have to find a third party app to do color correction.
And yes, the app is the best video app for iphone, and I’ve been using it since 2012, etc. That’s how I know about the color correction being removed from the clip library.
If Filmic Pro wants to really improve, it should have a color correction free app instead of the multi-cam app. There really is no point to the multi-cam app. Color correction, on the other hand, is vital..Version: 6.10.5
Stellar app to use for filming on a smartphoneEven if it uses the smartphone camera and built in sensor for the filming, I've not seen an app where you get the chance to further customize settings for it.
Though the Camera app makes for easy click-and-go, FILMIC PRO really let's you take great video with just a tap on my smartphone for the moments I want to capture. Different capture settings gives you options to customize how you want to capture the scene.
Great thing with the app is that it also works with the Rode Microphone Pro, so you’ll also get equally good audio..Version: 6.9.4
Lag when dialing in settingsI noticed that when I am adjusting settings for ISO, focus peaking, and H/M/L that the app lags, causing the image while framing a shot to move at a significant delay. Also I found the ability to record what you are capturing does nothing when you tap the record button.
When attempting to back out of the controls it either does not respond or takes so long that you have to close the app, at which point I found that the audio I hear in my headphones continues after the app has been closed, as though everything to do with the app is suffering from this lag.
Not sure if the devs encountered this so leaving a review so maybe it can be tweaked.Version: 6.9.1
Love it!!!This app is awesome for youtubers!!! I love finally having control over iPhone’s great qualities. The only thing that would make this app perfect for my class would be a semi bold white border built in along with the grid to aid in keeping everything squared, level and within the screen ratio in dark conditions. It’s not until the post production that we realize the entire subject was off center or slightly tilted. In some cases irreparable in post edits. I would gladly pay a decent one time fee for such a feature. Nice work Filmic!!.Version: 6.19.3
Close to perfect for ease and creative controlI look forward to contributing a comprehensive review, but decided on the occasion of the recent update, to raise a few points.
Most importantly for users: your presets may not work as expected after the update. My 240 fps > 24 fps slow motion preset lost the retiming preference, so I am stuck with a number of takes at just-plain-240 fps.
I suggest that users test and if necessary fix and re-save any custom settings that they need to rely on.
For FiLMiC Folks:
Not only for occasions such as this, please include the ability to retime clips among the post functions that you offer under the Play menu.
•When saving copies at reduced resolutions, please do not resample professional 48 kHz audio to the amateur 44.1 kHz “CD” sample rate.
•Please consider including choice of saving recompressed versions at the *same* pixel dimensions as the original clip, but at a lower data rate. In fact, choices of data rates and 2-pass encoding would be extremely useful for film makers needing to share rushes over limited data connections.
•Perhaps Apple has a lock on use of the H.265 codec. Especially as we seem limited to low data rates on our iOS devices, please allow us to choose if we wish, to use H.265 “Extreme” as the capture Codec for *any* pixel dimensions and frame rate.
•This applies to post options as well. I wanted to save and share a reduced-size 720p version of a (successful) H.265 1080p slow motion clip that I’d trimmed, and the re-compressed 720p H.264 clip was much larger than the original 1080p file.
•A minor, but annoying matter: please save recompressed files in .mp4 or as suitable containers. In the real world, we can’t keep banging our heads against the wall with clients using inferior operating systems that balk at or provide inferior performance displaying .mov files.
•Storage management is probably Apple’s issue. Long after I have offloaded all clips, deleted the originals and cleared Recently Deleted, iOS 13.6.1 Settings still attributes many gigabytes of file data to FiLMiC Pro… as it does for other apps even though *all* their data has been similarly removed.
Only by deleting (not offloading) the app then downloading it again from the App Store am I able to “recover” space that iOS should have shown as free in the first place.
As a side note, a few colleagues and one friend have observed that it’s been some years since a major version update to FiLMiC Pro, and they do not want to buy the app and necessary in-app purchases, when in their opinion their money will be “down the drain” when the “long overdue” update arrives.
To me this defeats the business model of developers who depend on income from existing sales to help fund costs of developing new versions.
Finally, as our phones are often more powerful than our computers made more than a few years ago, a (new, separate) transcoding utility which saves ProRes files to external media, would be superbly-useful for those of us who would like to have edit-ready files upon return from filming.
Many thanks for a great and continually evolving film making tool..Version: 6.12.0
Idea for future advancementOnce you have the multi camera feature working have you thought about making it record only on a specific amount of storage space. This could then be used as a dash cam as well as a great video recording tool and if you made an easy save feature for all cameras and it starts looping again then you would really have a multi use application.
I like the functionality now, can’t wait for the multi camera capability!.Version: 6.9.10
In App PurchasesI like this app a lot but I just don’t understand why there is a need for in app purchases in a 20 dollar app.
Edit: The developers responded with an understandable statement so my review is better..Version: 6.4.6
Idk what to say.Bought the app for $20 yet you gotta pay extra $20 to unlock the profile settings? 😖
And the profiles [ Flat and log ] wont let you shoot more 30fps.
Hopefully they’ll update it to up 60fps🙏.Version: 6.11.0
Best AppBest App, love it, however more gimbal support especially the Smooth Q3 and Hohem iSteady V2.
The V2 is such a good gimbal with Visual Tracking..Version: 6.19.1
The camera seems great but...You have to pay an extra 13$ for the remote??? I understand paying for premiums like the log mode and other add one (though I don’t like it either)... but so many other apps have remotes for either free or 1$ Had I read more closely I would not have purchased.
If you don’t care about that than yeah, it’s a good camera app. The analytics overlays are worth it alone..Version: 6.13.1
Auto isoPlease make auto iso in manual mood then app will be perfect.Version: 6.19.1
Keeps crashing - iPhone 13 pro maxThe app keeps crashing every 2-5 mins of usage or when you click certain buttons on the zhiyun zmooth 5… seems super glitchy. The light button doesn’t work - It just crashes and my light doesn’t turn on.
My biggest pet peeve is - I don’t understand why you cannot use the focus wheel for manual zoom? For ex, it’s so difficult to try to do a vortex shot (where the phone in spinning in a circle) while zooming in manually. Or any zooming manually, you have to use your finger to press your phone screen. Ya girl has long nails, so now I have to go buy a touchscreen pen… because I can’t even touch the tiny edges of the screen where the buttons are while the phones on the gimbal 😳
I really hope there is an update soon for all of this and that we could use the focus wheel for manual zoom 😔 last night, after purchasing and testing out the app with the smooth 5, it was so frustrating. But I am excited to see the potential of filmic pro with smooth 5 through new updates! Will update my review once these things are fix ✨.Version: 6.19.1
Very good overallI’d like to see a larger record button - or the ability to enlarge it. Sometimes it is difficult to press while holding the phone in certain positions. I’d also really like to see the addition of 4K 60P with Dolby Vision. There are frame stutters at times when recording, however I am not sure if this is an app issue, or a phone hardware/OS issue. Overall, a very good app that allows for pretty versatile recording on a mobile device..Version: 6.19.0
Almost PerfectAll it’s been missing since the beginning is 4K HDR 60FPS … maybe Apple won’t let this accessible to developers…? Aaah it’s a shame..Version: 6.14.1
Problème orientation menuL’application est très friendly user 👍👍.Version: 6.17.8
Filmic website security aside…This really is a great app. I still won’t navigate to their site via the app because of the incident noted below, but otherwise, the app itself is amazing. And although I normally shoot then grade for the look I’m after, I’ve been shooting Novus/Richmond a lot more than I thought I would. I almost don’t have to grade the footage.
Now, if only they would add a Tv mode, so we could set shutter speed/angle, and let ISO or filters take care of the rest…
Just a warning - and yes, it can happen to anyone. Opened the online manual tonight via the Filmic Pro app (Apr 26, 2021 - ~10pm EST), immediately saw the site redirect at least three times in Safari, then, “You’ve been hacked,” pop up in my browser window. Which didn’t mean I’d been hacked, but did mean Filmic’s site was redirecting traffic to a malicious site..Version: 6.17.8
Colour balance adjustment awkwardThe app allows for manual adjustment of the colour temperature but the slider option to make the adjustment is too awkward as it is not possible to make fine adjustments. You can’t type in a colour temperature value to get around this either. While they offer a colour temperature colour picker style of controller it is too easy to jump to higher or lower values as you don’t get fine controls. Yes they have preset selection for standard colour temperature but had they made the colour temperature manual adjustment controls similar to the larger focus control dials they would have offered better colour temperature manual controls. You might get close to the preferred temperature but any slight movement of your finger on the colour temperature picker and even on the plus or minus green shift option and your settings are inaccurate again. Having already written to them about this it appears they wouldn’t be offering easier pro fine tuning manual colour temperature adjustment soon.
They have many good features but the very poor option to fine tune colour temp leaves it less than pro..Version: 6.17.7
If only you could build ProRes to normal iPhone 13sI’ve been thoroughly enjoying the app. It would be amazing if you could add ProRes support for normal iPhone 13 models though… is it possible?.Version: 6.17.1
Really good app except I want a refund because the UII really like this app but I need a refund since the UI doesn’t disappear whenever I want. I want to use this app to record another screen that I am gaming on but I don’t want any UI present at all, I want to be able to toggle so the UI goes invisible after 5 seconds of no contact. I want this to happen when I am recording or when I am just looking at the screen without recording.Version: 6.16.2
Pretty goodI don’t know if this is possible, but if someone can do it, it would be you guys... I want to be able to use my Apple Watch as an external Bluetooth microphone when recording in the app... not sure if it’s possible, but plz try. I’ll even purchase this feature as an in app purchase if it becomes available..Version: 6.13.3
The bestIt amazes me that people are so ridiculous for so many reasons. Why do they write reviews? Why do they not know nor care what a review like this is for. Its to let others know about the app, NOT TO CHAT WITH THE DEVELOPER. There is a link to do that called contact support. You cant chat here. So you leave 3 stars to tell the dev that you want a feature and people think the app is not good despite being the best one. Try thinking about someone besides yourself for a change..Version: 6.14.1
Just Fantastic!I’ve been using FiLMiC Pro for the last four years and every update it just gets better. The most recent update came out this morning and I love being able to select the different cameras on my iPhone 11 Pro from the main screen! I can’t wait until I own an iPhone capable of 10bit so that I can try that out too..Version: 6.14.0
Backup problemsI like the app but i recently had to restore my phone from cloud backup. It turns out clipped videos are NOT backed up! I lost all my clipped video segments. I clipped the portions i wanted and deleted the original in order to save space and now they are gone. Infuriating..Version: 6.13.3
How many purchases needed to have this app?I have purchased it for 19.99 us, but when I open the application there is a banner with more info, and asking me to pay 19.99 is or restore purchases. I click restore purchase but nothing is restored. The question is , should I re-pay 20 dollars for this too? Thank you if someone answer me..Version: 6.13.3
Update Request: Zhiyun Smooth X CompatibilityCan you make this app compatible to the new Zhiyun Smooth X as well? it would be really great if you add it as compatible gimbal.
Anyways, so far im liking the app. A little learning curve but the output is really impressive.Version: 6.12.1
Keeps freezing when trying to recordThe app won't let me record after taking few shots. It freezes when I tap the recording button and this happens a lot. It resolves after few minutes though. Overall app quality is nice..Version: 6.12.9
Super appli !!!FiLMiC pro + un gimbal c’est vraiment le paradis dans le sac à dos ! Rajouter lui un pti drone comme un mavic mini c’est la vie. Je suis vidéastre et j’ai du matériel pro plus gros mais ce kit est vraiment extraordinaire et portable !

Bug fixes needed and better audio control for iOSSee title.
I use this app exclusively for work on my iPad Pro 10.5, so I know it pretty well. The lack of easy volume input control is beyond annoying at this point.
Temp won’t stay locked. Focus lock is a mess.....Version: 6.12.5
No level tool in appIt would be excellent if you could add the level tool on the screen please. Thank you.Version: 6.11.0
Please add NDI!I love this app for recording but it would be soooo sick if it could output NDI|HX to bring into OBS! Maybe someday?.Version: 6.12.0
