I’ve had this app for awhile now and I love it. Best $30 I’ve spent in the App Store. It gave me more control over my exposure and I love the smooth zoom arc controls. Apple native camera app doesn’t work well for me. The menus are laid out nicely and I can save my preferred settings into a preset menu, as many presets as I need. I recently bought an 11Pro because I wanted the 6x tele zoom fo r my video as opposed to my iphone8 zoom was about 3x I think. The newer camera choice menu is cool. You can choose any of the 11Pro cameras with an easy tap of a button. I noticed that the wide setting is 1x to 3x zoom in, then if I want 3x to 6x I have to stop recording to switch over to tele camera. For now I’ll use the tele only when I want to pan in close but I’ll be limited to pan back to 3x instead of all the way back to 1x. Although Apple’s native app will telezoom from 1x to 6x or vice versa in one action I still don’t like apple app. I’d like to kindly offer up a future idea for Filmic to somehow create a way for the tele camera setting to be able to zoom arc from 1x to 6x (and back) in one automation. I know that’ll be a trick because I imagine that two cameras would have to work seamlessly together. Would be an awesome little feature for myself and my class, an in-app feature that I’d gladly pay for. Meanwhile I’m loving a BUNCH of other features that you guys have nailed! My vids are much better quality than apple’s app could produce. Never going back to apple’s cam app again.

1) I shoot on an iPhone 11 Pro iOS 13.4. My filming requires 4K 60p. 2) Shooting 4K 60p on any quality setting using ultra wide results in choppy unusable footage. Dropped frames. The native Apple camera footage is buttery smooth. Clean install and restart didn’t fix the issue. 3) Stabilization when shooting ultra wide crops about 10% more than the native Apple app and produces less stable footage. 4) The preset save fails to save my camera lens setting of ultra wide. It seems like this app was designed for up to wide lens initially. Then, when the iPhone 11 was released, this software company cobbled together a half baked solution to get ultra wide supported instead of taking the time to do it right. The result is garbage footage that I can’t use. I’ve opened a support case and will update my review and rating if the makers of this useless recording software respond and fix the issues listed above. UPDATE: For item 2, support responded with the following. It might seem convincing had I not downloaded Mavis which is a 3rd party app which doesn’t have the issue: “ Thanks for writing in. Yes, unfortunately this is an error with Apple's camera API upon which 3rd party developers rely. We've contacted Apple regarding this and hope they will implement a fix in the future.”
Fantastic! But I'd love to see a few more crop guides!
NinjaNerd757 on 2020-06-03
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!
Great app with a major flaw
BenLive on 2020-06-03
This app has great features, an attractive and decently user friendly UI, but that’s where this app stops being good. After using this app several times, 2 major issues have come up. First, and the worst, it will randomly stop recording in the middle of a shot for no reason whatsoever. I shoot my footage by myself doing Jeep DIY so sometimes I can’t redo my shots when I complete my work that I am trying to film and since I shoot alone, I have no idea it has stopped filming until I am done with the scene and check my footage. Another major issue is sometimes the footage is choppy on playback. I have transferred the footage out of the app and even to my computer and it remains choppy so it’s how the app recorded the video for the footage. I am horribly disappointed in this app for what I paid for it.
Not useful with Osmo3
God's Music #1 Fan on 2020-06-03
I decided to purchase it as I really needed a way to use the AirPods for audio. Unfortunately, the audio was not useable. Even when I was only 3-4 away from the camera the audio was all static and broken. Also, the feature the company told me about with assigning the volume to record on/off only works when you are not using the bluetooth. Hence, that was also a bust. Anyway, your software is not really of any use to me as the Osmo software works significantly better. I wish I did not spend the money. :(
Too much storage
User1245789589 on 2020-06-03
I’m trying to create a 20 minute video, and I basically cleared out my entire phone’s storage in order to create this video, but this app is taking up so much storage space in my phone, that I’m unable to record the whole thing. A 6 minute video amounts to about 6GBs. I’m not sure why it’s taking up so much space or if I’m doing something wrong, but so far, this definitely hasn’t been worth the money. I’m not able to record what I need to.
Promises as good as dirt... white balance issue
JPS4YOU on 2020-06-03
Built-in dual multi-lens featured nearly a year ago is still not available, but instead a side step with a dumb DoubleTake app in attempt to help consumers forget that was one of the most hyped feature. Also please fix white balance memory issue as it does not always properly recall last programmed white balance. Please also provide direct key entry of color temp instead of this tiny dot hoping you get the color temp you actually need.
Where are the “Apple Event” from 2019 features???
Bdawgno1 on 2020-06-03
I am an avid fan of videography and an an amateur/semi-pro photographer as an hobby. I purchased Filmic for the features shown in September 2019 and still waiting for them to be released. Own a iPhone 11Pro with 512 GB memory. Please release the version we were all shown months ago!! I gave this a 3 start because of this...otherwise it’s a 4.5 star app. C’Mon developers. Please deliver your creativity. Thank you
Feeling duped
Raphfy on 2020-06-03
Been sitting here patiently awaiting this new feature you guys launched on the Apple event, now it is almost a year since and I am still waiting. I like I am sure many other people actually bought this app because of that feature. Now almost a year later it seems like we have all been duped. How could you launch a feature on an app that you obviously knew was not ready to be launched? Shame on you .
It’s a good app
hannah hjb on 2020-06-03
This is a good app but it does have glitches. My exposure and focus do not work. I even deleted the app from my phone and reinstalled it and the features starting working and then stopped working again. So it is pretty decent I’ve been using it for about 6 months now.
