Dan Dunmire - Missing key features.
Thank you developers for the quick response and feedback. While I understand the need to update the app; it would take far more time to update the app to replace the 2.59:1 with 3:2 than it would to replace the text in the literature and on the site to reflect that change as well. The manual being a compiled PDF shouldn’t take the time it has taken to address this and on the site itself it still lists 2.59:1 as a framing option. I do thank you for the clarification and quick response.
Everything I have seen directed me to Filmic Pro for my handheld cinematography. Which to me was a massive testament to this app. $25 for the app and all of its features is a great price. My issue with it is that the entire reason I purchased this powerhouse was to shoot in 2.59:1; an option replaced on my iPhone 8 Plus with 3:2. There’s no literature I can find for how to get this option back; nothing in the manual; and nothing in the Aspect Ratio video on the site. I’ll keep the app as I love the lighting controls as well as the dynamic focal point control; this app gives a fantastic angle of control to my cinematography that I no longer need my Canon or Nikon to achieve.
NinjaNerd757 - 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!
Impressed TO THE MAX (7273781) - 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.
rallyfan1234567890 - 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.
tonyf8104 - Bugs on iPhone X
I 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.
AKOUSTIKAL KREATIONS - You get 10 stars
Best 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.
Actartactivist - 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!
RedSymbol/ - 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.
Dudesaboy - 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.
j2nice78 - Disappearing Options
I 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.
Gil Velazquez - Excited and scared, but your team is amazing
Well 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.
BeatsDaily - Presets Do Not Save
Basic 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.
goblin89 - Great unless loses footage
99% 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.
mark98201 - Unstable app. Crashes too often on iPad pro and iPhone 11
The app has only ever been stable with built in device microphones. Hopelessly unstable with sound interfaces and sound sources that are perfectly stable with other apps. App destroys live event video with error messages claiming that it cannot save to camera role after it has been given permission and when there is over 100GB of storage space to spare. So unstable that it takes at least three Apple mobile devices working in parallel to achieve the result we would have gotten from a single major brand digital camera.
The app is only suited to very short video clips where multiple takes are possible. It destroys live event projects because it’s too unstable for those, and too easily crashes for numerous reasons, even a mic battery failing or a mic pulling loose. There is never any graceful recovery, it just wrecks the video.
Support can’t help with any of these project ruining software design defects. A major rewrite of the software to make it reliable will be needed.
Aldodelohingy - Seems Like There’s Much Potential
I 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.
SFDex - 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!
simaen says! - 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!
MyEme - 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!!
Speeddrums - App Doesn’t Open On iPhone X After 6.4.4
UPDATE: 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
erinthomaswilson - 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.
GetTEZ'd - Issue with Filmic Pro and iPhone X/XS Max
For 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.
innatedagr8 - 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.
vet_aple_usr007 - 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!!!!!!
Cody P! - 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.
idknthaveanickname - Bugs all over
I am completely up to date on my software and am on iPhone Xs. Got excited to film and use the LOG and other color filters to find out it’s another 15$. Didn’t know I had to go through extreme details reading through the entire descriptions of the product to later find out you have to buy more add ons. So I immediately spend 30$ on this app. I pull it up and record 2 mins on 4k 60 fps and raise the quality too..which is another reason I was buying it...It then freezes up. Do it again, minute and a half through..same thing. Do shorter vids and then it finally works. Do another few long ones and now the videos just disappeared and I had actually caught great footage that is now gone and not clickable in the preview window...terrible experience thus far. Maybe if you guys refund me I’ll change my review...But I’m gonna blast out bad reviews on this till I do :)
Coconut626 - A little miffed
I’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.
mechanical engineer7379 - Dynamic Tone Remapping Deal Breaker
It’s pretty hard to find info on this until you experience it for yourself. I have been informed, and I truly believe, that it is a fault of Apple and not Filmic, but here is the deal. Apparently as of iOS 13, and still in 14.0.1 thus far, Apple has forced it’s Dynamic Tone Remapping in video, and does not allow apps to turn it off.
What does this mean?
It means that even though you can lock white balance, ISO and shutter speed, if you have a dark scene and something brighter enters, the dark background will also adjust to be brighter. Basically, you can’t keep it locked in on a certain exposure no matter what you do. It makes the footage unusable. This effects almost every scene in one way or another.
I really feel for Filmic Pro, but the app is ~$24
($13 initially and another ~$13 in the app to make it actually useful), but it is currently useless unfortunately. I’m glad I didn’t start buying lenses and I really hope Apple fixes this, because besides that, this app with the iPhone 11pro would be really good. Filmic I’m sorry to leave you a poor review, but I hope you are calling and tweeting Apple every day until they fix this, because it is rendering your excellent app useless!
flyguy95rrr - 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.
thecus3 - NOT RELIABLE
This is an absolutely amazing app if you unlock and pay for the extras, but let me say that this has some huge flaws. I just got done recording a project and not a single file saved audio alongside it. I need something reliable when I’m shooting and now I will NEVER use this again. That is a crucial mistake on their end and I’ll never get that moment back. I wasted several hours of shooting and will probably lose the client because of this. And before you say did you check the settings... I have a checklist I go over every time because there are errors bound to happen in mobile video, but something as basic as not recording audio? This app could potentially cost me an exponential amount compared to what I paid... DONT BUY IF YOU NEED RELIABILITY. It also just stops recording 4K and I have the iPhone XS Max so if you have dont have that one, DEFINITELY DONT BUY OR DOWNLOAD
one_.n._only - Cling and distortion issue
It 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.
OKchrispy - Yup
Taught 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.
pentagramwookie - Great features poor performance
I love that this app is able to shoot in log or flat and 24 FPS + all the color settings. Unfortunately I spent hours preparing multiple scenes and musicians to take footage for a music video. Everything seemed to be going great until we handed the footage to the editor. Turns out most of the files are garbage. Some are as bad as roughy 5 fps and stay stuck on the same frame at some moments, not the 24 fps as we had selected in the app. We will have reschedule and spend a whole other day to reshoot almost everything and possibly make us miss a deadline. This happened on a 128GB iPhone 6s. For the price of this app I don’t think I should have had to assume the footage was garbage. I should have been notified that instant that footage was being shot at a different frame rate than selected.
BenLive - Great app with a major flaw
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.
RickW - 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.
DaemonJ - 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!
dbmathis - Unusable
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.
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.”
wyndyll - Crashes constantly, frame skip constantly, corrupts most videos half way through
I have used this app connected to an iPhone XS and have lost so much footage that isn’t even removable unless you connect to a computer using iTunes. This means if it loses a shot that was long that I cannot even deleted the corrupted file to free space to keep recording with a computer handy. When it stops mid video, there’s No way to rescue the videos. Happens 2/3 times I use the app and anytime I record for more than five minutes. If it doesn’t fail when recording then it fails at recording with terrible frame skips and out of sync audio. Audio management with microphones is also atrocious with it almost impossible to get decent levels out of anything prosumer. Ridiculous considering this app costs three times more than other video apps.
EvanLarsen - Great app, but issues connecting to the Osmo Mobile 2
I 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.
BloggerDude - They removed the color correction feature
The 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.
MellowExpress - Scammed! Bait and switch.
I got this app thinking, ok, its $15. But then I find out you have to fork over another $13 to get the full function of this app like flat profile and dynamic range, etc. After finding this out, I started researching and looking at reviews and this app has a bunch of bugs from minor annoyances to things that don’t make sense like not recording the actual frame rate that it says it’s recording on. I don’t mind paying for a good app but what’s with the hidden fees? That doesn’t inspire any confidence with this developers at all. It does quite the opposite. Who knows that they’re going to charge next. I feel scammed. I should have watched reviews on this app instead beforehand like I usually do but I have it a benefit of a doubt. I’m not doing that anymore. I want my money back and fvcku with your scams and hidden fees
N.H. - Best app for filming that I’ve seen
I’m just getting into filmmaking and every part of my research about what apps to choose sent me here to Filmic. I was able to begin filming quite quickly with very little training on the features. At the same time, there is a depth of features that will allow me to dial things in as I develop in my skills and knowledge. My only request at this time would be support for an expanded range of gimbals. Filmic currently supports Dji osmo gimbals, I have an EVO sp-pro, and so I’m limited on some features that are available to other users. Other than that, keep up the good work!
Yasser Masood - Stellar app to use for filming on a smartphone
Even 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.
josh foxi - Lag when dialing in settings
I 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
createdbytrix - Solid Video Camera App (For Casuals & Pros)
If you’re a filmmaker with little resources or just need a more stripped down, straight-forward production setup, Filmic Pro should be in your tool bag. It’s a solid app that opens up your iOS camera’s hidden features and gives you more room to breath on the video side of things. I would even recommend this app to the casual person who wants to toy around with filmmaking and learn the ropes, instead of investing in expensive gear. Filmic Pro gives us another option in our arsenal as filmmakers, as creators, as video lovers!
AshuPunjabi - Best app for short filmmaking
Someone who recently had a new passion for filmmaking, I wanted to make short films myself. However, while money was tight, this app really came in handy because it has everything a young, raw filmmaker needs to start pursuing his career. Especially with the changes in aspect ratio, resolution, frame rate, etc. Not to mention the fact that this app supports many of the drones, tripods, stabilizers needed to create amazing shots and tell great stories. This app became a filmmaker’s dream real quick and I am truly grateful that the App Store has this app in the first place.
JyeungTV - New issue since iOS 13.5.1
Found a fix for the new issue with iOS 13.5.1
When plugging in your external microphone check your audio settings by swiping down in the top right corner of your device and make sure the headphone volume bar is ALL the way down. This is what fixed it for me!
The app itself is great the only issue is the freezing I’ve been getting since using it on my iPhone 11 Pro to record my vlogging content. Sometimes it freezes sometimes it goes black. Very odd.
Before 13.5.1 my external microphone worked perfectly and flawlessly was able to create my videos without any audio issues.
Now going back to test it the audio DB is maxed out and shows 0.0 and makes a horrible whining noise. I’ve tried everything possible to make it work and yet the same issue on 2 different iPhone 11 pro’s.
External microphone works with iPhone camera and memo voice recorder no issues. Just filmic pro.
Can you guys please update the app.
IFLOWZ ENT. - Add Finbonacci spiral to FilMic
I really enjoy using this app. I use it on my iPhone 6s, (yes I’m 2019), for school projects and recreation. One update I would enjoy seeing added to the FilMic app that can be downloaded and used in DSLR is the Fibonacci sequence. It is a mathematical equation of framing shots used by professionals and Hollywood directors and is the mathematical design of nature. It’s the only thing this app lacks and would be greatly improved if they added it. Please FilMic team, research the Fibonacci sequence and incorporate it in the next update. Much appreciated

Clown Baby - Spectacular App
Most of the time I avoid apps that are for the camera because they seem gimmicky with features it cannot deliver. However, FilmicPro is my favorite app since the App Store started. I just finished shooting a mini documentary with it, a panoramic Moment lens, and an DJI Osmo Gimbal. It looks amazing. There was a steep learning curve but their website has lots of great articles and explanation videos. It really bumped my cinematography skills up and gave me the visual cinematography look that I’ve always strived for. Thank you FilmicPro for making me a filmmaker.
SaniBanks - Freezing & audio out of sync
I’ve been using the app for about a year. And Im now using it with my iphone 11 pro max. Its been functioning great until about a month ago. The app constantly freezes while recording. Seriously, I wish I could show you guys. This happens multiple times a day now.
Also, even worse, the audio and video is out of sync. Im not sure why, but I’ve tried different audio sources (built in mic, rodemicL, rode wireless) and they all have the same issue. Where as, no issues in the iphone stock camera app. I’ve checked settings and this happens in Filmic Pro regardless of the resolution and frame rate.
The concept of Filmic Pro is great. But these bugs make the app unusable. I’ve lost countless footage due to these issues..
HoustonSoundGuy - Great quality but doesn’t stop when full
Used this app to shoot a project and loved the flexibility of the manual controls. There are 2 things that need work:
1- the audio slider is so small that I could not easily control the volume. The slider jumps to where the contact is sensed and too small for me to see my adjustment till I move my finger away.
2- Must add a visible alert that the storage is full and content is not being recorded. I lost about 4 clips. I saw the transparent blocks in the play list but was not able to view or retrieve them once I cleared space on the phone. Not sure why the app records when there is nowhere to put the footage.
If I missed something please correct me.

Bizura Saruma - Amazing app but doesn’t support active tracking
Filmic pro is a very nice app. Unlike iPhone’s default camera settings, you can do manual settings in Filmic pro you like and record raw videos and later can edit in advance softwares like Premiere pro. But it doesn’t support active tracking like in DJI Mimo. So, I would like to provide feedback to the developers team to add this functionality so that users can have amazing extra feature and don’t need to think any other app to shoot videos.
Jezz7w - Great app but often produces frozen footage
There are so many great things about this app but the footage is often corrupted at several points where the audio continues but the video freezes. The footage for those parts is unusable. This is becoming very frustrating as I am a teacher trying to film lessons for remote learning on a tight schedule and it is seriously upsetting that I have to re-film entire segments of lessons because of this issue. Also, the audio gain slider is way to small and attempting to slide it often activates the home screen handle/bar. It would make more sense to integrate it into the actual audio levels meter on the right hand side. (Yes I’ve checked my storage. It’s fine. I’m on an iPhone Xr)
Swamiji1008 - Filmicpro
I purchased this app twice, one for me and a friend. My plan was to use it with 2 x iPhone Xs coupled with 2 x Senheiser EW100 G3 transmitter lapel mic systems. It was a total washout and failed miserably. I contacted FilmicPro over this and their answer did not resolve the issue. When I informed them of this I got no further replies. So I am annoyed and frustrated since this app is supposed to work seamlessly with the iPhone X. So no stars as a review until they take this seriously and fix it.
My sincere thanks to Filmicpro. Since writing the above they have fixed the issue entirely and now I am very happy with this app. It works superbly.
LRW in Camperdown - Great app now even better!
Filmic pro has been my go to app for a while now, but it was niggly with respect for the Movi gimbal. Hardware support always felt half baked. But with 6.9 we have the integration with the Movi and its superb. Have been playing with it this morning and cannot wait to actually get outside and do something! The integration appears to take stuff straight from the Movi App (modes, window, tilt/roll, support for the D Pad etc). Have tested the basics so far record button, speed and love it. Well done Filmic!
AusCze - Great App/One Request
Filmic Pro really adds professionalism to those who use their iPhone as a method of filming. I do recommend this app as it has endless options in which you can thoroughly set your preferences and consequently film a great-quality video. However, there’s a limit to which I would love to grant 5 stars. This limit is due to Filmic Pro’s incompatibility with ZhiYun SmoothQ 2. Other than that, I am looking forward to improving my filming experience with Filmic Pro.
skywalker m - Minor update
Hi DEV team
First of all best of luck for this app and more updates to come, it's been my travel video recording app and all the best memories of my life. But one thing I would like to suggest is that , while recording video if it could track an object then videos would look more smooth esp. while time-lapse if it could be added in next update then it would be a nice thing to have if the team can make it happen...
Best of luck🤙🏼
GlobalBullReviewer - I’d give it 6 stars if I could!
Fantastic app and now they’ve added support for Movi Cinema Robot this app has really gone to the next level if functionality and film making creativity, with the latest update id give it 6 stars if I could!
For any budding mobile film maker out there do yourself a favour and get this app, the in app purchase for the cinematographers kit is also well worth the money, go for it!
Nickthe Zulu - Great but....
Love using the app for professional work and teaming it with Luma Fusion, which data flows through to seamlessly. However, would love to see you resolve some data transfer issues. When you try to transfer multiple clips - it doesn’t like it. Slows down the job. Worse yet when you try to send clips to an iShowFast - it is very intermittent and often won’t transfer them. Know all the silly mistakes - learned the hard way - not that. Once you fix this issue you’ll get those other two stars.
xjeepers1978 - Now works with Zhiyun Smooth Q2
Awesome, bought this app to use with the Smooth 4 and was awesome. Changed to the Smooth Q2 for a more compact gimbal when 4wd’ing. Was disappointed at first that filmic would record with the gimbal button, but now with the latest update it works awesome with it🤘
Love having full control over what I am recording and look forward to future updates👍
Shadowflay - A great app!
We use this app in conjunction with an iPhone 6s Plus to document a micro dairy construction.
I have a 5D Mk3. Filmic is fantastic and I seldom use the 5D. I can barley fault the app. There could be a little better integration of the screen rotation feature so it works properly once viewing clips. If you haven’t rotated the screen back at the video screen it stays in that orientation.
But serious, this is a fantastic app. Highly recommended.
Tim Maisey - Documentary
I have just returned from filming a documentary using my iphone x and filmic pro as well as a dslr. I could not have got the shots I wanted without the features on filmic pro including the focus pull and locking exposure, frame rate and focus. The documentary was filmed on an island requiring confidence of getting the shots in difficult lighting and sound conditions as events happened and with minimum equipment.
Noisy boy rundown disks - Phenomenal App
Shooting a short film recently, I decided to use my iPhone 11 Pro as a secondary camera. Using the Filmic Pro app, it quickly became the primary camera on shoot.
The seamless and intuitive nature of the app made shooting a breeze. And the cinematographers kit expansion turned this little machine in my hand into a cinematic camera. I’m so very impressed, and keen to submit this short film to various comps
Aussieniks - A must buy app for your videos
You cannot live without this app if you love shooting videos with your phone. Especially when the developer is so proactive to review each feedback and respond.
Thanks to the developer for getting back to me. I had some issues using it on iPhone 11, however it is all working well.
Sean ordinary - PLEASE READ DEVS
Guys, fantastic app really. One addition would solve so many problems for me. The white balance always reverts back to AWB even if saved in a global preset! Please make it a saveable setting that persists after program is restarted(like every dslr camera behaves) or at the very least saveable to a preset where it does not reset to AWB(auto white balance). I realise it can be set each time but that is time consuming and easy to forget when you need to shoot something quickly, fixing a rapidly changing white balance in post is a nightmare. Once fixed my review will go back to five stars.
Blake Hilgers - Great app but (developer please respond)
I bought this app it’s really good, the best on the market but when I opened the app I saw that I had to pay another $22 I thought that’s what the first $22 I payed this would be a perfect app if you could remove it and for $22 its not very important to upgrade anyway it’s just annoying please fix this and make the best mobile filming app on the market 🙏
RHLB - Why the Multi-Cam Delay?
I enjoy using FiLMiC Pro and was turned onto it when Apple showed the new iPhone 11 multi-cam feature using the app. It was a huge promotion for the phone and the app yet after all this time still the multi-cam feature is not available. Why the delay?
howlowl - False pretenses.
Well this is a great App. I purchased a brand-new iPhone 11 on the strength of this apps demo at WWDC. I have waited patiently for a year and it has not eventuated. And even worse there is no advice as to when it may happen. I purchased a very expensive phone which will be out of date before the feature is released. I am sure Filmic Pro won’t assist which a new phone purchase so I’m not happy! Our than that it’s a good app.
revolve - The best video app out there
I’ve only just started using this but I’m impressed by the quality of the app, the way it extends and customises the options and functions of the iPhone camera and the speed with which the devs responded to the Osmo Mobile 2 changes. Really impressive.
Inke89 - Great app but
This is a great app and a big help to improve video on the iPhone X. However I’ve got one problem: it keeps freezing. Always have the newest updates on my phone and I’ve waited a while to write this, but it keeps happening. If this can be fixed I’d have no complaints at all!
Iron - Amazing functionality.
This app has amazing functionality and the manual settings for focus and aperture are awesome once you figure it all out. It does take some practice. I would love integration for the Kaiser Bass XS3 gimbal. This would make Filmic Pro my absolute primary app for shooting video.
MitchellClare - Great App but..
Love this app, it’s the best Filming App for iOS, but please add support for the DJI OSMO Mobile 3 hardware gimbal, a toggle to use the Zoom controls on the gimbal to control Focus or Zoom of the camera would be a winner. DJI has updated the firmware recently so please update the app to support the Mobile 3, this is a must!!!
jmlfilmmaker - Audio issue
As much as I love this app. It truly is amazing, there is major problem I am having when using my iPhone mic and it happens 50-60% of the time, a loud repeating beating/vibrating sound that drowns our everything else and 10 seconds worth of still frame at the end of each video. Any help would be much appreciated.
Peterkoevari - Extremely buggy on iPhone X
Just bought this as it came highly recommended. Nice functionality in controls. Continually crashes on playing back of videos, and many times doesn’t capture audio. It has also completely rendered my iPhone frozen after crashing on playback, twice now. Please fix how horribly unstable this app is and I would rate it highly. It’s not a cheap product, with such huge bugs.
jykuser - Stabilisation bug
It seems to be one of the great filming app. Although There is a bug when using stabilisation. When the stabilisation is turned on, the screen goes all green. It may not happen to everyone but it’s happening with my new iPhone Xs. When I delete and reinstall the app, it looks fine for mins and then same green screen covers the whole screen.
Subash67 - Cant save 120fps videos to camera roll
Is it only me or i cant save the high fps videos ( 120fps videos) to my camera roll. I can airdrop to my mac but i am not sure if it exports the video in full quality.
VH-ALX - Disappointed does not work with DJI Osmo 3!
My initial excitement for this app has turned to massive disappointment in the fact that it does not support the Osmo 3. After reading further down on your preview statement in the App Store, you do state that you support Osmo 1 & 2. Unfortunately you do not make it clear that currently you do not support the Osmo 3. It is the only reason I purchased the app. Hopefully you will address support for the Osmo 3 soon.
video explorer - How do you edit videos?
I bought this app last week and see no editing features. There is an online tutorial on editing videos but the app does not support it. Where are your video editing features hiding?
241195 - Great app! However
Fantastic app, I have linked my Dji Osmo Mobile 3 but I cant seem to use the zoom function?
B Clements - Pro from top to bottom
Everything you need to get the job done!
ammmyyycc - Not that great
It always glitches and goes out of sync with my voice. Annoying when you film a 30 minute Pilates class to realise it’s glitched after 5 minutes so the class is a waste. Happens nearly every time I video.
BaileyRob41 - Great app but slightly disappointed
I am loving this app! The thing that disappoints me is that I have to pay another $20 for logs when I already paid $20 for the app. The prices should be cheaper or the cinematographer kit for free.
Xenarzio - Very good!
This app is very good! It gets the job done and has lots of customisation. Really impressed with this app. 10/10
BlueDoorsstudio - Bait and switch
Bit of a bait and switch. Pay $13 for the app. Then have to in app purchase another $13 to make it usable for film makers.
No wide angle lens support on iPhone 11 pro - yet.
Now whilst the update they talked about in the iPhone 11 event isn’t due yet; but will this be yet another in app purchase to unlock?!
BuffetBoy - Buggy now
Films upside down when in lock horizontally mode. Just about every startup ends with a ridiculous twist and shake action to re- correct the orientation.
Anyaim - Waste of money
Just downloaded the app and didn’t like it already, you can’t use the front camera for all cameras which’s very disappointing.!
Also very disappointed that you have to pay for the Cinematographer Kit as well.!
Van merkos - Lose quality after export to camera roll
I recorded 4K and when I save it to camera roll it be comes 1080 . Doesn’t support well the zhiyun smooth 4 , doesn’t work the tracking mode. And many many more, I think I lost my money.
radio1069 - Can u show us which mobiles is compatible for the Log2 mode, including iso and andro
Can u show us which mobiles is compatible for the Log2 mode, including iso and andro ? Cheers!
Bob@aus - Best app so far
I love this app, will love to see this app is compatible for zyhun gimbals in future , 4 star for cashing a lot on my iPhone 7 and 6s.
KateDee - Great app — Needs DJI Osmo Pocket capability
Only thing that’d make this app better would be compatibility with the new DJI Osmo Pocket and better compatibility with the Røde SC6-L Interview Kit.
Phildevans - WANT A REFUND!
Purchased in-app add on to access Flat and Vlog recordings for 4k 60fps. When unlocked, the app states Flat and Vlog only works up to 40fps, and not 60fps. I feel screwed over!
Raised a refund request with Apple who denied my request without further explanation.
GIVE ME MY MONEY BACK!!
skitt less - Great app!
Please add compatibility with DJI OM 4
Would love to be able to switch modes with the M button!
Thanks guys and great app!
Earlegray - Black Screen
Currently not working in iPhone SE. Went through troubleshooting steps - made sure app had permissions it needed and reinstalled, still shows a black screen when open.
cjcjcphcococou - Upgrade please, can you guys upgrade your app so I can use the record button on the Q2 please
michael XAM 16 - FiLMicPro
Does not move past 1st screen re camera,photo request,why,thanx,function v useless,why,does it happen often,on iPhone 8+,ipadPro 10,5 as well,why,thanx,please respond,thanx,Michael
Delljames - Great app - please integrate with Newtek NDI
Great app - would be fantastic if it could integrate with Newtek NDI for more professional grade streaming
DavidGP2000 - Still waiting for multi cam support!
Bought this a while ago hoping for multi cam, months later, still waiting. Coming soon is it?
Taken for an idiot - Lack of support
Great app. Don’t expect any support, emails go unanswered. Otherwise would have been five stars.
bboystudyz - osmo 1st generation, zoom out doesn’t work
osmo 1st generation, zoom out doesn’t work
Finchwizard - Something wrong with app
I’m on an iPhone X and like someone else’s review the videos are corrupting.
Sometimes it’s ok other times the audio continues but the video is all messed up and doesn’t play.
Causing me to go back and reshoot a lot of interviews.
Sevrink - Still No Osmo 3 Support
Can we finally get proper Osmo 3 support please?
Wondering how you could earn $25 by just signing up? Earn $25 for free by joining Payoneer. Sign Up!
Ceccano eXpress - Idea for future advancement
Once 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!
SystemLeap - In App Purchases
I 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.
UX Gal - Close to perfect for ease and creative control
I 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.
Dj19567 - Dont buy it
Guys this a good app but it’s a complete ripoff! Don’t get it!
Filmic inc you guys gotta make your app cheaper. You can get camera apps like this but way freakin cheaper and some even free! Don’t waste you money on this app
Filmic inc. Make your app cheaper! Jeez
Genefrix - Update Request: Zhiyun Smooth X Compatibility
Can 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
josh…1 - Yikes
Love all the advanced features. Kind of pointless how many features and effects can be applied when the app doesn’t record properly.
Spent the weekend taking multiple videos only to find out later that the video recording glitched while it kept recording audio. Then after the video finally caught up, the audio and video weren’t in sync. This was on five different videos.
The Apple Watch preview often gets stuck on the first image it loads.
Directors view function (I think that’s the name for remote screen viewing) is cool, but lags a little too much for a $30 app.
Trimming function needs works, seems to only allow for trims/cuts of larger proportion. Doesn’t allow for editing out the 1-2 seconds of me looking at my watch while initiating recording.
I’ll redownload and see what happens. If the same, I’ll be asking the App Store for a credit.
icehat - Great
The app will randomly lose audio. It works fine for a while then one day I’ll arrive at home after a shoot and discover that there’s no audio. The “video only” button is off in the audio settings also so obviously a glitch.
dvbdbdnsj - don’t have long exposure
don’t have long exposure option for motion blur time lapse and light painting really disappointing from an app that cost 20$
minusr - 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🙏
App-Reviewer-Guy - Dropped frames galore
App was useful but now every few seconds I get dropped frames. Stock camera app doesn’t do this. Yes, I’ve restarted my phone, restored it from new, closed all other apps and put into airplane mode. STILL DROPPED FRAMES! And this is on a iPhone XS Max, so not an old phone.
AugustusLow - Bug fixes needed and better audio control for iOS
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....
Nicolasfsh - No level tool in app
It would be excellent if you could add the level tool on the screen please. Thank you
我去过多久啊咖啡册 - still unable to connect zhiyun smooth 4
Always no response for my zhiyun smooth 4, my gimbal works well on zyplay can you guys fix it?
Am409 - 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?
Md Ridwanur - So disappointed
I just paid $20.00 for buying this app and it says again to spend more to get some other features. This is really frustrating and I wish I could get the refund.
Gerald Querubin - No Audio on iPhone XS Max
I just purchased this expensive app. Took some videos and no audio!
Dougyefg - MOMENT has the same app for $7
I wish I could get a refund, nearly $50 for an app that doesn’t do anything different than the $7 app from Moment :/
I wish I heard about that app beforehand 😰
jmhanania - Bluetooth audio recording?
I love this app Ames the remote features but I can’t seem to record audio using my AirPod pros. I keep getting video with no audio. Would love some support.
urjfjwkw - Storage recognition way too slow
This is overall a good app, but the storage recognition is way too slow. I would completely delete a massive video off of my phone and it takes around 20 minutes for the app to recognize that that much space is now available. Also, instead of making a video essentially useless if you’re out of storage in the middle of filming, the app could consider automatically saving the video up to the storage limit point. These storage related features need to be fine tuned because it is an app or storage-sensitive smartphone users.
Wolfeyez - Supports Osmo Mobile 3...NOPE (a year after release)
I keep waiting for the update to make your software compatible with the DJI OSMO 3...nearly two years later, nothing. Guess it will never happen.
Beer-Geek - Zhiyun connect issue
Apparently the Flimic pro stopped connecting to the Zhiyun gimbal in January of 2020. As of July 1, 2020 it still does not connect. I heard the issue could be solved by resetting the data on my iPhone, but this did not work. I wasted $20.
camby22 - Greatest!
The best there is!
DL_Chris - Great app
Just needs to support DJI Osmo Mobile 3
chocolate slug - Not worth $20
Save your money. I wish I did. Almost instantly regretted buying this. Doesn’t work as advertised with my smooth 4. The whole reason I bought it. Stick with the software you get with your gimble, cause this is garbage.
Javiermayday - Be careful
For 21$ cad you purchase the app but you can’t use the Log or Flat profile. You need to spend another 20$ cad for the cinematographic bundle if you want to use the app’s full functionalities. I wish i had known before. I am disappointed. It is expensive. Other than that the app is okay.
Sperophoto - No Log support over 60fps what is the $20 for?
How do they justify a $20 in app purchase for log support that isn't available over 60fps ? Moment offers all of this for a flat $17 with Log being supported across your devices supported frame rates. Complete rip off as this makes the entire point of the add on moot.
Twirling Erling - Thank you for the response...
The video on the new se is very good, so it makes sense to have quality control over focus selection, exposure, colour and FX right while you are shooting. It all looks and feels very slick (in a good way), and is worth the asking IAP price option.
Kachappilly poulose - About App
I have purchased filmic pro in my mobile but unfortunately my phone camera is not working because of some issue, can I use this app in my wife phone with out buying new purchase ?
Jean-Félix 87 - Fake LOG
Love the manual focus
Kileva - Zhiyun Smooth 4 not connecting
The app is great except for two things:
- From time to time, it freezes and I loose precious shots.
- It stopped connecting to the Smooth 4. It was working very well and suddenly it doesn’t connect.
diijfjeiekdkd - Connection error - DJI osmo mobile 2
Why I can’t connect this app to DJI osmo mobile 2??
hotnewmusic - Damn
I just bought this app to use with my Zhiyun Smooth 4 and it’s still not connecting to it. Hope this gets fixed soon.
2KFiend - Great App
I’ve been using the app for about a month now. It has great features, and many settings for your video needs. Though, for some reason, the app is no longer connecting to my Zhiyun Smooth 4 gimbal. I hope this is a problem that can be fixed in the near future.
tmatharu - Need Osmo mobile 3 support!!!
Hi! It’s a great recording app. But come on it’s been months the Osmo 3 mobile has been out and still no support for it. Any eta on this??
eyeOfRah - You might think this is a great app
It will be. Not today, not how it’s sold, not today. Splitting the cine features was dumb. They should had been more upfront on the features. Nice attempt thought.
ycpj - Missing live analytics when shooting in 4K 60fps
Please update to allow live analytics when shooting in 4K 60fps. Filmmakers rely on focus peaking to manually focus. Zebra stripes, clipping and false color are equally important to check exposure. Thank you.
Bigbangman666 - Paid very expensive and does not work at 60 fps
Why Flat and Vlog does not work 60 frames per second! I’m really angry at the price I paid
LionJP - Perfect for anyone
This app is definitely worth every penny.
worstintroductiontoocodingever - Having issues opening app
I just downloaded this and everytime i open it shows a black screen then crashes a second after please help me with this I feel like my 21$ went no where.
vdb007007 - Multi-function support
I am one of the subscribers and bought the app
When is the multi-function support coming what we saw at the launch of the iPhone 11 Pro Max ?
Guvernmento - Really frustrated with missing recordings
I love the idea of this app, seems solid for most people, but I’ve had many instances of clips just not saving to my iPhone 8. Sometimes the clip is recorded, but the last few seconds are frozen and the clip doesn’t show up in my Photos app.
Thought it was because I had low space on my phone, but I cleaned up a lot of room and I’m getting the same results.
RobMac12 - Not recommended
Dont waste your money on this app its useless the multicam is not supported I downloaded a muti cam app for free and that app supports multi cam extremely dissapointed
ChrisBoar - A great video app
Just purchased this due to the integration with Zhiyun smooth 4 gimbal. The video recording capabilities are excellent but I can’t believe I can’t take a simple photo via the app. For those of us who are casual users who want to use this on vacation, taking photos would be a nice function without having to drop out of the app. The Zhiyun video app does it.
budulay1989 - Update
please add slow motion!
Thank you very much
sandersonlindsay - Tops!
Love the control and versatility of this app! The new version featuring multi-cam shown during Apple’s September iPhone event looks awesome!
Galton Celestin - LOST ALLMY FILES
Since the last update for IOS 13 the app doesn’t save my video not even in photos.. I’ve lost a full shoot because this issue! I want a refund!
meximas123 - Bought this thinking it would work with my Osmo Mobile 3
Does not work with the Osmo Mobile 3.
Record and trigger buttons do nothing.
ClassyDeadpool5 - A Must Have
Seriously, this is a must have for mobile filmmakers all over the world, this product is flawless
fundypan - Simply the best
As soon as you realize the tremendous range of control and the simplicity of operation then it becomes self evident that FiLMiC Pro is THE best choice for video on iOS.
I appreciate how the app continues to advance and provides integration for many 3rd party add-ons, such as the Shure MV88 stereo microphone.
H. Rodrigues - DJI OSMO Mobile 3
Is doesn’t to be fully compatible with the mew DJI OSMO Mobile 3. I can’t lock into the sport mode for example.
Hope it will solved soon.

Josh. G. - best camera app, 1 problem
this is the best camera app i have ever experienced on my iPhone. i like how you can do more with this other than the stock camera app because they can integrate with gimbals and you actually get standard and time lapse. also this is also only a video camera so like now i have 2 camera apps one for photo and one for video. one thing i do not like about this app is that the cinematographer kit cost $14 and can it be free so everyone can enjoy cinematic footage on their iPhone. so if you are limited on controls. get this app now!!
Joshsteinbauer - ENRAGING! This was the WORST app
I bought this 8 hours ago. All the bugs colluded to completely ruin our shoot. In the end, we went back to the Standard Camera app. The shutter does not lock. White balance constantly resets. Every time you adjust your phone, the app resets. The app got stuck recording and made a dozen two second clips before we had to close it and reconfigure. Brand new iphone11pro.
I want my money back. I’m not here to do free consultations w your developers—I want this enraging garbage app off my phone. I’m not saying that I hope everyone working at this company dies in a fire or anything, but It is morally reprehensible to sell this broken bug infested garbage and I hope you all suffer some minor miseries like cavities, toothaches, poison oak.
DanInSeattle - Clip management and export is extremely poor!
Filmic Pro V6 is an excellent app for video capture. However it is extremely poor!
If you save your clips to their video player, there is no way to directly export the clips to to your PC. It used to be that you could use iTunes. However, with iTunes V12.7, that functionality has been removed. It Appears that Apple wants you to upload your clip to the cloud. With 10’s a GB of clips, that is total unreasonable, especially when you need them on your computer for quality editing.
I have 150 clips from a recent four day trip. Getting them to my camera roll and then to my PC has been an nightmare.
What’s worse is that there is no User Forum that I can find for users to share solutions for these kinds of problems. Pretty much all I can find is promo stuff hyping Filmic Pro. It is extremely frustrating trying to find solutions and all you see is spam!
I love Filmic Pro and it’s integration with my Zhiyun Smooth 4 gimbal, but I can’t stand the major hassle of managing the clips. I’m looking for a better iOS video capture tool.
Chrisjden - White balance flat setting
I love this app! Honestly it’s my phones fave app! But unfortunately I’ve been having a problem lately, whenever I tried to calibrate my exposure, I zoomed in to my white balance panel, and then I go and press flat in the exposure settings, then my image goes completely black and white, and I tried moving the settings but it stays like that until I quit and restart the app! My app it’s up to date, idk if someone else have the same problem! I hope filmic fixes this issue,
Neuxstone - Perfect except one small detail...
Not only is this an essential tool for pro shooting, it drags you kicking and screaming into the world of manual mode and helps you understand it. Bravo however one caveat and the reason for 4 stars...my iPhone 7plus heats up like a horney fox in a forest fire and drinks battery. It seems to help if you go into settings and uncheck the “save to photo roll”. I think that keeps it cooler and the battery lasts longer. This is from experience of only a few times shooting. I’ll weigh in after I get more footage under my belt.
Raskul4 - Be careful. This app can damage your phone!
I hesitate to write this because on the surface filmic pro is unbelievable. An app that really pushes the iPhone to be a filming phone. However after the last update my iPhone 7 has overheated twice which resulted in shutting down. Three days ago and the second time it overheated resulted in my phones microphone not working. So now I need to take it in.
Before you say I was doing something irresponsible. I have had this app for sometime now. Also, both times it overheated it was in October and I was filming indoors. This is a high processing app and to some degree might be too much for iPhones in general. I truly doubt filmic pro will but me a new phone or you for that matter so buy at your own risk.
Tacoma Dan - Amazing app!!!!!
This is one of the most well thought out apps I have ever worked with. It seems like the more I work with it the more I discover options and abilities that take my videos to the next level. You can tell there are so many features that have been well designed. The controls are very intuitive and natural I just wish these guys would start making other apps like games :-)
Also put a camera shot button on the screen for me! :-)
uneakphotos - Saving videos
Hey guy love the app and all it has to offer. Recently I been using the app and when I would record a video I would then later go back to watch it or find it and it wouldn’t be there not sure if this has something to do with an update or what but it’s a little disappointing that I paid all this money for the app and it doesn’t work please let me know if you can help with fixing this issues thanks ... I would hate to have wasted money and or not be able to use it ..
DWaikhom - Doesn’t support DJI Osmo Mobile 3 gimbal
This app is the most popular and still one of the best video app on the market. You get the whole control on the settings for your video and photos, from resolution to frames per second, aspect ratio, ISO, exposure, shutter speed, focus, wide lens or telephoto lens ( in case of iPhone) etc. It can even control certain smartphone gimbal stabilizers on market like Zhiyun smooth 4, dji Osmo Mobile 2, etc but it doesn’t support the latest dji Osmo Mobile 3, which is the only downside and make people not to use this app and rather prefer to use the native app for the gimbal. Hope this helps.
imagecruncher - Great App
The video produced on my iPhone is not professional quality but this app allows some professional capture techniques when used with Zhiyun Smooth 4. Great integration, easy to use, light weight portable “video rig” if you can live with smart phone quality. I am never going to win an Oscar, so smart phone video is acceptable on some occasions. I have professional equipment that is used to produce blogs and wedding videos but I love this app for travel, pets, Facebook, (non paying) video.
stkeith - Frustrated with bugs and customer service
I have been using and recommending FilmicPro to my students for the past couple of years. However, I have encountered issues with audio monitoring with the latest version that made me look elsewhere after I contacted their customer service and got nowhere. They did not put much effort in solving my issue and blamed my setup when everything was working properly before the app update. They will not contact you via phone so you will have to keep writing emails back and forth. The issue persists with this latest update (6.7.2) so ProMovie Recorder+ is my new app from now on.
Perspolice - Multi camera option
The only reason I upgraded my phone when I phone pro max came was the presentation of being able to record all 4 cameras at the same time. After waiting almost a year I periodically check to see it it is available or not until today that I was tricked to pay for the pro but still nothing.
When I download the free app It was showing 4 cameras so I got super excited then try to play with it but the only bottom I could figure was the link to get pro version and I decided to buy but after I paid I saw a not sating the still don’t have multi camera option.
I wish there was a way to delete and return it.
zacevansphoto - great manual features
i use this with my iphone 7plus, works great with image stabilization and the dual camera. 4k at 100mbps is awesome. the user manual is easy to read and very helpful. presets are a good idea but i wish they could be edited/overwritten instead of deleted. don’t use PCM audio if editing in premiere, it won’t work. and maybe some added customisation options overall would be nice, such as being able to hide/relocate tools, a full screen filmic library.
Alexander Ill - Too many bugs!
I want to like this app so badly, there are so many features and it’s designed so well! However, this app crashes on me constantly! I’m using it with an iPhone XS, I usually shoot in 30fps, 1080p and extreme bitrate using the log profile and I can’t get more than 5 minutes out of the app with it crashing on me and losing the video I was in the middle of shooting. I’ve done a clean install and rebooted my phone but nothin works. Will give 5 stars if the app is fixed.
After doing some testing and playing around with the app I’m finding that the app crashes a lot less if you don’t save your footage to your camera roll and just keep them save in the filmic app.
juliakatherina - Love the app but having issues
This app has been so great for shooting on iPhone, I really love it. Recently though, whenever I film, the app will randomly freeze, and then a little while later the time jumps ahead to where it should be and it starts again. And then whatever I was shooting gets messed up. It is incredibly frustrating. Also, my husband uses it as well, but he doesnt deal with this issue, so I’d really love to be able to understand why it’s happening. I have deleted and re-downloaded the app so many times and it still does it.
mam8dg - Great app with responsive support
I’ve shot a couple of videos with this app and it has worked great. I use it in conjunction with their remote app so that I have a view finder, and I’ve been very pleased with the results. However, I am mainly writing because their customer support has been great. I had an issue using an external audio interface, and I received prompt responses and follow ups, which shows they had a committed team behind the app.
Ahmad Zazai - App issues
The latest app 6.10.4 has some major issues.
- mainly noticed in 4K 60fps, but also happens in other resolutions. When I click to lock the shutter and then come out of the settings, the shutter values changes back to 1/60. If I choose to lock the shutter, than the iso should be the only value to should change. That’s doesn’t work when I double click on the round circle and the shutter values change instead of the iso.
- At 4K 60fps, I don’t have the option for analytics. When I lock the shutter, I have no way to know if I am properly exposing the image or not. When I click on the round circle to automatically expose the image, then the shutter lock doesn’t stay on and instead of changing the iso value the shutter values changes.
I paid closed to $30 for cinematographer kit
and I regret it that I cannot fully lock the iso or shutter values. Also, with some of the video resolutions, I don’t have the log or analytics options.
Waste of money. Either fix the app or give us the money back.
Chris MacAskill - Well worth the money
I’ve been using the app for a year and it has become one of my favorite iPhone apps. The thing is with video, exposure goes all over the place as does everything else as subjects move and the camera passes windows, etc. It takes awhile to learn this app, but when you do the control it offers is so powerful.
I use it with a DJI To stabilize my iPhone and the DJI can start & stop the recordings, etc.
Nate Barber is a nickname - Not intuitive, no editing capability
I’m probably not very smart, but I find the controls for this app very confusing and not intuitive at all. This app is near impossible to use for quick filming.
I know FilmicPro has in-app editing capabilities. But I cannot access them. (And yes, My app and phone software are up to date. And yes, I have tried turning it off and on)
Before, getting to edit videos was tricky, I had to turn my phone sideways before opening the app. If I was already in Filmic before needing to edit a video, I’d have to close out of the app, turn my phone sideways, open it up again, and only then the editing menu would magically appear on the video I wanted to edit.
But somewhere, even that feature went away. Now I can only film in Filmic. Any editing I want to do, I need to download the file and edit separately in Premier Pro. Either make Filmic an only-filming app, that is actually intuitive, or a filming and editing app.
HalfGlassFull - Quality and control
We use FiLMIC Pro on all our shoots at the hospital. Be it surgical procedures or for run & gun interviews.
FiLMIC Pro constantly gives us the leverage over other solutions, in the control of how our shots can be set up & look, to the standard we want to have (FPS, audio, mics, rez etc)
Going into any shoot with FiLMIC Pro on our phones means that we have the best solution on the market to shoot and edit some of the most delicate and intricate of settings.
Danny Dolla - 👍🏻👍🏻
What I mean: I downloaded this app years ago when it first came out on the App Store and been using it off and on since then. Of course there was some issues back then, like crashing and losing my footage, but it has developed into a portable Cinematic Camera System.
Now I’m using it more and in the process of shooting a music video. I’m using the Moondog Labs Lens with the Beast Grip Pro, with the FiLMiC Pro App and every test video I shoot looks like a instant masterpiece!
Jordy s Mac - Worth the money! I purchased the bundle!
I purchased Filmic Remote & Filmic Pro bundle! It was completely worth the money. I have a personal iPhone X and a work iPhone X my company provides me. I was trying to figure out a way to use my back facing camera along with being able to see and control my phone using my other device. This is the only solution I found and it works perfectly. Totally worth the money!
Alex_Crimson - No good if you need better audio options.
The app works fine for video, but nowadays not everything is about video, I tried to connect an external microphone and there was latency between the audio and the video. At some point the app crashed and started recording 2 to 3 seconds videos and I couldn’t stop that. I had to restart my phone that’s first time that I have to to that to stop some app. The worst I spend 20 dollars for the remote control which I thought would be a great idea but it has latency as well you are not able to control parameters in real time. You better try MOTIV Video from shure it is free and works much better.
Adventure Seeking - Buzz Kill
After all the hype I paid for filmic pro to go with my stabilizer. After linking the app and filming with it, my iPhone SE heated up terribly. I used the phone without the stabilizer and yet again it heats up. No other app I have (lumafusion, film graders, pho editors, etc.) does this.
I have read of other users having this problem, and when they ask for help, they have to change this and do that, not me! Didn’t buy this for a hassle.
There are others that don’t have this issue, fix it and I will up my rating. Won’t hold my breath.
mach_tone - Helping me with my dream!
I’ve always wanted to make a movie, but the camera I have won’t connect to my microphone and isn’t the greatest quality, this app is helping me make my movie look more professional and makes everything easier being that I’m filming on my phone. Although I’m using other accessories like a mic and a tripod this just amped up on making my movie professional, thanks for helping my dream!
MARCO ROSALES - Can’t open on iOS 11 (FIXED)
Everything had been working super smoothly. But i had to update to iOS 11 last night and i just noticed it won’t even open now. Please fix asap so that i can continue to use it. I love this app & it’s very useful
Update: they fixed it, dev team replied to me quickly and suggested I reinstalled the app, and now everything works perfectly and smoothly as always
Mike proud American - Just learning, but gives more control
Filmics automatic light filtering or settings make it essentially a touch the round white button to record experience. The video and sound are rich and accurate and focus setting tools are easy ( I think that what they are) I took a spin through tutorial to get going. Happily I can go back. I need lenses options for the iPhone, but then watch out Stanley Kubrick..
BigDog Films - Great App, but needs a few improvements!
Just got the app a few days ago and have been messing around with it, It is impressive that is for sure and the video it produces is top quality. As good as this app is, It could use/need a few changes...
1. The ability to make the Rule of Thirds Grid brighter and/or darker, and the ability to change its color
2. Shooting in log or flat or any other setting should be FREE and NOT require any additional in-app purchase as it is with other similar apps with these features.
3. App’s over all pricing should be on par with other similar apps of this quality but it is not, it double the cost.
Because of the above mentioned, I can only give it 3 stars otherwise it would have gotten all 5 stars (sorry).
Over all, I think this is a great video app and I love it, great quality!Thank you for making and maintains it!
rrrrtfffjudsshjkktfssw - Video Freezing Issue
Great features in this app and will update to 5 stars once this gets fixed. I keep having random sections of my videos where the image will freeze, while the audio plays on for about 10 seconds, then the video will continue. This is a big problem when I’m providing online content for members and clients as a trainer. I have a iPhone XR with the latest iOS version and latest version of your app today. Please help and fix this issue. I’m shooting in 1080 and 30fps.
sci-fi geek - Very useful but clumsy when used with Apple Watch
Filmic by itself works well for amateur video shots. My problem has been with using it on my Apple Watch to control the app. I find that the Apple Watch app says the phone is recording but it really isn’t and other times it shows as not recording but it is. The two apps seem like they aren’t synced properly. Having this work properly would be really helpful!
Hdhdnrhrn - Do not bye
If I could give this app 0 stars I most definitely would. You are better off Recording on your normal phone and then color grading it in your editing software. I brought this for a whole $15 to think that it will give me a more cinematic Look to my film but not knowing you will have to buy the whole kit which is a an additional $10. With them not evening telling you that you will not get these features without it. With me knowing how to work the app and using it comparing it to my normal phone footage it is not worth spending 15 dollars. I wish I could get a refund for this piece of *$% highly disappointed
Miotch! - I want my money back
This app is crazy buggy and will ruin your footage. The audio will randomly stop and then be completely out of sync. The first time it happened I thought it was because my phone was receiving messages. This time I filmed in airplane mode with all data off and still the video randomly freezes and then the audio is out of sync. I purchased this to film pro footage and scenes that are impossible to replicate or recreate at blue lost forever. Also sometimes the “save to camera roll” button does not work and will not transfer or AirDrop the footage. I’m extremely frustrated.
Hey_Andre - Great app!
I have been using Filmic Pro since my iPhone 4s and now I’m using it on my iPhone 11 Pro. Any time I shoot a video I use filmic pro. I love the controls it allows me to have such as control over exposure, focus, etc. the quality of the app and the level of control it lets you have over your iPhone lenses is nothing short of spectacular. Thank you Filmic Pro team! Keep up the great app!
Elbartodiy - Overrated
Inconvenient interface. Inconvenient and incomprehensible export. Developers neglect design. Incomprehensible values of exposure control that do not resemble real cameras (where is iso? where is the adequate shutter setting?) why reinvent the wheel if we need the usual camera settings. I would forgive all this if the program was free, but its price is quite high, plus you need to pay extra for the "additional" functions, we also pay for the filmic remote, which I also have complaints about. The feeling that the program is in beta testing. I do not recommend filmic.
chung123 - With new Freefly Movi support, Filmic Pro rise to another level.
The latest update with Freefly Movi suppprt means the best video recording app on the iPhone goes to a whole other level. Touching the iPhone screen to make selections is one thing—but when paired with the Movi with phyical D-Pad buttons, it allows precise stepping and dialing of exposure / focus. It is really remarkable! Awesome update. Can’t wait to see what further refinements is possible.
TheFreeDutchman - A bit misleading
Hidden in the footnotes a bazillion paragraphs into the description is the fact that you’ll need to pay extra to unlock flat and log picture profiles. Come on, guys. Charge $20-25 for the entire thing and include these options from the get-go. No amateur who doesn’t want to peak at histograms and lock exposure is going to use Filmic Pro anyway, and those who do will pay $10 bucks more.
Otherwise it’s a great app and definitely a significant upgrade to the iPhone camera app.
Jseavers05 - Great app but not very intuitive
The app has quite a few options I appreciate like locking the exposure and awb. However, the iso and shutter speed settings are not laid out well. These should just be a simple slider like in MoviePro. Also, why doesn’t the zoom work with the DJI Osmo? Or why can’t the app record audio in stereo? The flat video setting is alright but LOG isn’t really usable due to banding during color correction. The exposure and focus locks should just be buttons instead of some off square with double tapping. This app needs to be simplified and more straightforward.
mcmusicmedia - This is my reason !!
First of all I use to love filmic pro on my note 9
But once I switched over to iPhone XS Max which is a way better phone I love it just hate the lack of support with this filmic pro app
I paid for the app already And was going to pay 15 for the cinematographer kit which allows for log profile and flat profile shooting capabilities
But some reason it won’t let me download it keeps saying ‘purchases can’t be completed’
Is there a way in the App Store I can buy this by itself instead of going thru the app support and it will automatically update everything when I open the app if so please help . Thanks
I’ll redo my review once things change but for now 1 star
AnonymousSB93 - Still missing multi-camera support
It’s been 3-months since the keynote and I bought this app before reading the description that multi-camera support is still not supported. This app and its iPad companion are pretty awesome. This app will get 5-stars once they get multi-camera support working, which apparently is coming in Jan-Feb 2020. As a fellow developer, I understand the complexity involved, which is why I was super impressed by the keynote demo! Can’t wait to use this feature myself.
EricJi108 - Has been a good app
Why the 1 Star?? I contacted FilMic Pro to get a question answered. After 3 attempts to talk with someone and over a week and a half later someone finally got back to me. The response was sub-par at best. This lack of communication is Totally Unacceptable!!! FilMic Pro also changed their shutter speed settings. This means that if so want to shoot at 120p or 60p the only option is 100, 200 or 300 to try to match the 180 degree rule. It’s a problem because if the shutter speed is too high it creates a stutters effect when there is camera movement. I don’t know why they took away the option for more exact shutter speeds???!!!
jeanclaudephoto - Deeply disappointing
I recently purchased a Zhiyun Smooth 4 gimbal. The Filmic app is widely touted as the best companion app for it. But it’s got problems.
Foremost is the shutter speed bug (confirmed by Filmic). It refuses to hold 1/48 if you’re shooting at 24fps and try to use the exposure wheel on the Smooth.
And then there’s the hidden (exorbitant) extra charge for getting access to LOG profiles. Spend $15 for the app, only to find out it’s almost double for the “cinematography kit”?? I don’t think so.
Filmic, you currently have the most popular vid app out there. That can change in a hurry, especially if you keep screwing with paying customers.
syedhali - The gold standard
Been using Filmic Pro for a few years now and love the ability to customize my shots (frame rate, resolution, audio inputs). The last couple releases have fixed a lot of bugs and I see the app performing better and better each time (I.e. my phone doesn't get as hot as it used to). The cine kit is also totally worth it, def worth the in-app purchase!
MrTrainer - Too cumbersome
Using an iPhone 11 Pro, this app requires way too many adjustments, and has glitches. For example, if you begin with ultra wide lens and zoom in slowly you will easily see then footage snap as it transitions ￼between the lenses. I gravitate towards the native app or my DSLR just for peace of mind.￼ Another example: in order for tap to focus to work indoors, you have to manually increase the ISO. Again, the native app will focus quickly and easily without any adjustments. I appreciate the extra features, but you’ve got to get the basics down first.￼￼
JPS4YOU - Promises as good as dirt... white balance issue
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.
Cuttingbal - Great video creator app with a downside
First off I love this app, it’s fantastic for shooting video, however the major drawback that prevents me from giving it a 5 star ratings is that it overheats the phone.
I shoot b-roll on an iPhone 11 and just the other day after 15 mins of filming various clips, my phone was so hot I had to turn it off to cool it down.
So overall I highly recommend this app for serious video creators but go in knowing that it could overheat your phone with medium length shoots
Budlightadhater - Still no multi cam feature
With all due respect - it is sad that it’s been 3 months since the multi cam feature announcement and it’s still not included in the latest update. I’ve been patiently waiting but this is excessive. You shouldn’t have announced it at the keynote at all. I can’t imagine the frustration of those who purchased your app only because they saw the multi cam feature during keynote and can’t use the feature they paid for. I purchased my new iPhone partially because of that feature that I still can’t use 3 months later. The bad reviews are well deserved.
westcoastrapfannn - Updated and still crashes
I’m tired of recording videos only to find they froze 4-7 minutes in. Last time I reached out your solution was to record things in takes under 10min in airplane mode but not even that is working. I’m on an iPhone XR. I had hoped with several months and a few updates it would resolve but it still hasn’t. I’d give the app 3-4 stars for its features and potential but this issue combined with the length of time they’ve had to correct it ...I can’t recommend this app.
Delbert Tucker Photography - More Hardware Options Please.
Love it, for real! I’m new to filming in the iPhone and enjoying the learning experience with this well thought out app. It does not connect to my SMOVE Mobil gimbal. I wish it did! It’s not fare to give it a 4 star for that so I’m bumping it up to 5. I like how I can use the go to auto setup or take full control and shoot manual like on my DSLRs. Well worth the price so I can get creative!
DurableSlate - Sideways and no help
I purchased this app to shoot a clients videos, I set it to the 16:9 Ratio and all of my videos came out sideways, you’re supposed to shoot your video sideways which I did, horizontal is another term for this. I emailed customer service three times with no answers. I’ve done various test in the videos keep coming out sideways, so I have to put them in my editor and flip them, they won’t go into my editor like my other video camera footage from my DSLR does. I must have a setting wrong but it sure would be nice since I paid for this app, if the customer service would respond to my email
Disappointment 334 - Nothing works
I purchased this app to work with the iPhone 11 pro but it doesn’t work the way I expected it to work. I purchased an zhiyun 4 to record a class I am teaching and the app does not connect with the gimbal. I email tech support on both issues and ha e not received a response and from the automatic email response I received I can expect a response in 48 hours, but my class that I need everything for is in 11 hours. Overall I have very little good to come out of purchasing this app and it is starting to seem like a waste of money and a headache just to get started using it.
