KBR779 - Amazing Retro App!
From it’s 80s purple/blue aesthetic to its videotape recorder button styles, VHS Camcorder nails the perfect time machine into the past of video recording while still maintaining cutting edge videotaping resolutions. It’s everything that any true retro video fan would love, from silly titles to spoofing the date, with multivariable grain levels, filters, and frame dropping. With its function to run up to 1080p at 30fps, it still retains clean and modern video resolutions as well as the option to upload and convert previous videos, a huge plus for this app. However a few changes could be implemented, such as the addition of different filters, more aesthetic control, as well as options to make the video worse or to include more static. Otherwise this app is absolutely amazing, completely worth the money, and serves as an excellent point of true 80s nostalgia
whalio123 - Awesome App!..Just a Few, Minor Things.
This app is amazing, I use it a lot! I love it a lot. There are some little fixes I suggest. Well, for starters, it would be awesome it have the little multicolored interference like some other users have said to make it look more 80s. I also think the font/date should be a but more 80s as well. You can kinda tell it’s fake. Other than that, this app is awesome.
I also need help with something else. Some might find this easy to fix, but I’m not good with app updates or anything, heh.😂 But I would really appreciate it if someone could tell me why my phone isn’t updating for the app. I will go to menu and I will press the “Tap here to have full update!” Or whatever it says. So I’ll click on it but it just brings me back to the AppStore and the app. I’ll go to my little update section and it won’t say the VHS Cam needs to be updated. I’ve done all that I can to try to figure it out. I’ll go to settings, I’ll look in the VHS Camcorder settings, but I can’t seem to find out how to update it. I’m afraid I’m over thinking all of it or it has to do with my phone. I have an iPhone 6s if that has something to do with it.. I would absolutely love to have all the filters, mess with the date, and be able to film longer. May anyone help me?
Tq mike - Another note...
Note that most of the reviews are from 2 years ago when the app was in its early stages. Now this app has use of the flashlight, there are 3 filters (none, retrocolor, b&w, and nuclear[which is my favorite]) and the resolution options are 480, 720, and 1080p with 24,25 and 60fps. there is also now an option for random tape dropouts which is great. A few people are talking about making it so you can play music while recording so you dont have “a quiet video, or have to just talk...” Id just like to say that this app looks very authentic and you couldnt play music on your camcorder back then! lol i also think its very unnecessary. also importing videos into the app seems like a cool idea but also, ehh, you dont really need to guys, record what you want to with the app! theres no reason this app shouldnt have 5 stars across the board!
Yoders.6 - A minor bug on older iPad models running iOS 9.3.6
I have noticed that the Color Bars filter crashes on my iPad Mini running iOS 9.3.6, though it works fine on my iPhone 6S running the latest version of iOS, which is 13.5.1. Otherwise, the other filters work fine.
I will still give VHS Camcorder a five-star rating because it’s just one of those apps that I keep coming back to, and I don’t always have the time or physical space to dig out my VCR to process videos on videocassettes that I’ve used time after time. I’ve tried similar apps by other developers, but nothing compares to this. Rarevision truly has perfected the VHS, the Hi8, and even the PXL2000 effects. Having used the app since 2015, I feel as if VHS Camcorder just keeps getting better with every update.
hesitant planet - Please look in to my suggestion!! :)
I really love this app! I had the regular version before and this is the best pro version of any VHS camcorder app so decided to buy this one. I wanted to import a video from a few weeks ago and it was awesome how I could change the date to match the exact same day I took the video. HOWEVER, I realised there was no way to change the time on the video which kinda bummed me out (the video I wanted to import was taken at night time and the time I was importing the video the time read ‘3:20 pm’) so i have to wait until sometime later tonight to import it, that way I can post the video without the time being weird. I think it would be really cool if you added a feature where you could spoof the time as well since you already have one for the date. Thanks for taking the time to read this!!
Ronsterbot - Great App, But...
Love the app, a real great simulator of 1980s/90s technology. A great feature would be the light bleed effect common in some model camcorders. The effect is seen in many films where the sources of light, lamps, bulbs, the sun, and televisions would cause a bleeding effect and trails when the camera would move. A realistic simulation of this effect would really add a whole new level of realism to the VHS Camcorder. Also perhaps more control over the effects, such as brightness, white balance, and color casting. Other than my suggestions, this is a great app from someone who owns many real 1980s camcorders, this is easily the second best thing!
Nyclady - Gotten a lot better! But..
There are some small improvements that I feel are needed. Tapping should remove the graphics, not it and the date. Hiding the date should not also hide the graphics. And when going to Hi8, the tape and the green “TBC” should be removed and replaced with the “Hi8” logo. Change time between from 12 hours (e.g. 6:00pm will be ‘18:00:00’) or what’s available now; also a way to manipulate it as with the date. Also maybe programmable keys somewhere for keeping tabs with certain effects, since static and color bars would be useful if I could get to them and not swipe to them? I still would like for there to be a way to turn off the interference when under other effects
Eve Severe - Get this
One of the rare apps that actually emulates old camcorder videos. Kids-you have it made today because my camcorders were a grand each and I had a few. The effects in this app were what we didn’t want back then but now are sought upon. This developer is on of the rare (pardon the pun) devs on the App Store that is not out to grab your money with a subscription model. This app is updated often, has a great Ui, is self explanatory for people who are that tech savvy, and is affordable. I have a ton of video apps I shoot with and this app is in my top five.
Don’t hesitate on this one -just get it!!
wizardboy85 - Great! Minor thing
Love the app but (and maybe I’m just missing something??) when I delete the videos off of my camera roll, they don’t stay in the app. It would be really cool if it was like VSCO (you can delete the photos but they stay in the app). The reason I needed to delete them was for storage and was really upset when I opened the app again and found that the videos weren’t there anymore. If there is a way to fix this I would really appreciate if someone let me know somehow. Nonetheless, it’s an amazing app and so much fun to use! I really love it and highly recommend.
KC1974 - Not bad, but..
The other, free VHS Cam app has “Play” text on the screen. This has “TBC”. Would be nice to basically have a full version of that... as that’s what I was expecting.
That said, VHS Cam is impossible to close on iPhones without the button. You have to press power on the phone to turn off the screen, then power again and quickly swipe up to close the app or to get to another app or the iOS home screen. This app - it’s the same except you have to tilt the phone to portrait and then you can swipe up to close the app or get to the home screen (this method doesn’t work on VHS Cam). Who makes an app you can’t close? Seriously.
Also, why doesn’t VHS Cam know I bought the full app? Can’t use that thing at all. Crazy.
Edit following dev response:
You need date and time on screen to have “play” text appear. Disable the date and time, “play” disappears.
You long press the bottom right, not the bottom of the screen to toggle date styles.
There is no option to select between date style in the menu.
Home swiping up twice on either app does nothing to move the app to the background to use another app or close them.
-Savhanna - Review on this app:
I ABSOLUTELY LOVE LOVE LOVE LOVE THIS APP! I use it everyday/whenever I get a chance. I’m so happy with my purchase and will/would NOT ever regret my purchase. This app is great for photography, people who just love taking photos, people who might like old looking things and just honestly overall anyone. Never ever will I go back to any other camera app. Thanks to the people who made this app! You really changed my life. I would 10/10 recommend getting this and purchasing the extra $3.99. If you’re reading this and debating on getting this just do it! You won’t regret it I promise!!!!!
Rafa•_• - Suggestion/s
It’s a very good app; I bought it because I like old type videos you know, pretty cool how you can set a title for your videos and everything. Then I thought that it’ll be much better if you can take pictures in it, I know the app its about a recorder app but it’ll be much better if you can take pictures and edit pics from your Camera Roll! Like I have a lot of pics that I can edit from this app even videos. I will like to have that feature in the app... I was even gonna make a refund of it just because of that but I decided to leave this comment here and see if something changes.💯
Thugnificent_____ - Music While Recording
I installed this app yesterday for a house party and it was a HIT. The adjustments on the menu screen are helpful (adjusting the time stamp, resolution, title, etc.), however, the only suggestion I have is to allow music from the user’s device play in the background. I use Apple Music and I notice when I begin to play a song and open this app, the song immediately pauses.
I really enjoy this app and I highly recommend it to 80s/90s enthusiasts. I notice other reviewers mentioned the music factor and I hope this is something that can be resolved. 😊
hdkaxnhfiakbcjoaoqp - best purchase
this app is amazing. I love how the old school 90’s kinda early 2000’s trend is coming back and I love how you can change the date, however, I think it’ll be even cooler if you can change the time too. I also think changing the time on the VHS is cool so when you’re importing a video to the app you don’t always have to wait for a certain time you want to post. Anyways, this purchase is worth it even if you’re not really using it 24/7, it’s just a really nice app to have. Plus when you make personal edits this will add a nice touch to it.
Rawk Lobster 64 - Love It!!!
Totally worth the money. I was going back and forth between multiple options and I’m very glad I went with this one.
The video is convincing and the audio distortion seems spot on as well.
I have nothing negative to say about this app.
The only item I’d add to a wishlist would be to be able to add a “blip” in the video whenever you want (the multicolored interference that you would occasionally see in old recordings). Just a quick tap on the screen to do it would be perfect.
Colin Stuart - Was good, could be better
I don’t know what’s happened but whenever the app updates ALL of my settings get wiped. Be it recording settings or titler settings, etc, always get reset to stock ones.
Also upon launching the video is really skinny, I have to go in and out of settings for it to show right. This is with 4:3 on.
Also I wish the spoof date setting also rolled over the day once you hit midnight.
Also I wish I could turn on and off the date while recording, just like with a real old camcorder.
Also I wish I could easily stitch together clips I take one after another again like a real cam.
Derek López - Button placement
This app is amazing and I’m constantly using it, but when it comes to take videos of myself I find It awkward when watching a video back of me recording myself because you see yourself pressing the record button with one hand and then switching hands to use the zoom in and zoom out. I feel like it would be better if you guys put the record button and the zoom in and out buttons on the same side.
DECAF_MACINTOSH - Some bug fixes need to be made
I adore this app and it’s nearly perfected the VHS style, but some of my videos look worse than the ones my grandparents made in the late 80’s. when trying to video things from afar, the filters can’t capture all of the figure so they stretch colors out making the person look all pixel-like. Also, some things even up close are so blurry it ruins the aesthetic. I suggest adding a 2000’s VHS filter that doesn’t mesh the colors and blur to the point where you can’t identity a person or a thing in the video. It’s way too grainy even with a different filter on.
Gabbyfoshizzle - Love my vhs app
I use this app all the time, can’t complain. Love taking videos in vhs style. Now that I think about it, I’m kind of trolling my future self. I’ve been taking plenty of vhs style clips in my phone for months and haven’t done anything with them yet, but I think I will eventually turn them into a lil movie. Excellent app. Worth whatever they are asking for it. I mostly use the basic default setting but they also offer different filters if u are an artsy type.
_cubefish_ - Awesome
This is a great app! I’ve never actually reviewed one before but I felt I needed to review this app because it really impressed me. The effect is convincing, and I love being able to control the quality of the video by dragging up and down. I also love the ability to be able to import videos, (though it would be nice to be able to import from google drive, but I can just download it to camera roll so it doesn’t really matter). It’s a great app!
Xelrolyat1720 - I love this app! Just one tweak...
The whole effect is really good. The only thing that could be done better is the color bleed effect. It's not quite how VHS looked since the VHS color channel was basically squished horizontally, and then re expanded to save on film space. That re expanding is what caused the colors to bleed since the colors were basically blurred horizontally. If there's a way you guys could implement that, then this app would be spot on!!
I am being overly critical with this I know, but this app is 90% there. Improve the color bleed effect and it will be 100%!
Analog_Thoughts - A small addition
I love the app and think it works wonderfully. It is easily the best VHS cam app on the App Store, however, I do have one small item I would like to see and that is a “Fade” button or option so when you begin recording it fades in from white and when you stop recording it fades out to white. This was a common feature on camcorders in the 80s and 90s and would complete the app for me. Outside of that keep up the great work Rarevision.
@_70.7_ - Great app
Worth the money😐👍
I have no problems but something to keep in fact is that when you delete the video from your camera roll it also deletes it from the apps storage. The quality it top notch and I would highly recommend. The different filters are also amazing and the fact that we can change the date is also something I really enjoy doing. This app is without a doubt great.
Sam✈️✈️✈️ - This is literally amazing
This is a game changer when it comes to posting aesthetic vaporwave late night posts. The fact that the quality of the video is so bad that it is literally perfect and it looks real, unlike the cheap overlays you would have to search for all over the internet and social media. I recommend this app to anyone who wants to put a little retro in their memories. Such a great deal too for $3.99. It’s not free, but it is TOTALLY worth it!!
Unit No. 43412683661955 - Very worth the $3
The graphics are very realistic, you can adjust how fuzzy the footage is, and you can even add text! There’s nothing you can’t do with this app. The manual is handy and readable, the controls are nice, and overall I had a good time recording with this app. I only have one complaint: it’s hard to put text over videos when they are importing, but even then it’s doable. I recommend this app!
I Hate dumb apps - I’d like to recommend it!
It has many features that you would be amazed by and gives your video a look that would trick many into thinking that the video that you’re showing them is a true retro video. Also the speed for you to upload a video from your photos is very fast. Although, some criticism that I would add is that it doesn’t have as much features that you would hope. But overall, I’d like to recommend it!
Megan Nhieu - Great app! But a few changes I’d hope to see in future.
Love the application , but wish there would be more options for the time & date. I wish that when you import a video, the time & date at which the video was taken would be on the video. Or even when you can “spoof” the date , I want to be able to do the time as well instead of it just doing the real time at which you are converting the video. Overall, great app!
J. Oxael - pretty dope
Aight so I’ve downloaded at least 10 different vhs cameras and the full version of this one is THE BEST ONE. They let you customize how low res or high res your video and it can even make your audio sound distorted like an old camera does. I’ve shot so many things through this music videos and personal trips. Hands down would recommend if anyone wants an authentic looking vhs camera 👌🏽
g2100 - Best on the AppStore!
Great for a High-8 type look, good zoom and light features, lots of filters and aspect ratios, even audio quality options. I’ve bought three real VHS camcorders and none of them were salvageable even when listed as working. There’s a lot to play with, just remember the limits of your phone’s camera/mic. Would recommend a fisheye lens kit for people with 1-front facing camera iPhones.
bdbsjeidhshsjdhdjdjdjdhjf - GREAT
great app but i think you should add some vhs glitches you can use while recording (like bad tracking) and also you should work on the vhs filter a bit more. you can tell it is not actual vhs when you see the "3D" outlines on everything. plus you should work on the date text as you can tell that it is fake. other than all that, awesome app.
刘汉娜 - Extremely accurate
I’ve been using this app for quite some time and I can say that it is extremely accurate to a real VHS camcorder. I’m really liking the extra details in the new update so far. However, I feel that the filter has changed a bit and I enjoy the original vhs effect before the update. Is it possible to add that in the settings? So you can switch between the old look and the new look? Thanks!
Boxerbit - This app is very epic but has one problem
I love this app since I’m a huge fan of vhs and just 80s stuff in general I’ve recorded a lot of videos on it and currently making a project with this app. The only problem I would say it has is when I import videos it’s all squashed up and looks bad I don’t if it’s my phone but I would like to see this problem fixed or something that I can fix it. Thank you for making a great app!!!
Leland Gurrieri - They really went the extra mile
The depths they went to create this is amazing. I really go to a place of nostalgia of my home videos from the 90s using this app. The color profiles and the distortion of tape camcorders is so accurate. Also it’s definitely worth spending the few extra dollars to buy it for the extra options but both are amazing.
ohyeahhugo - Great app
I love this app so much because I’m an editor I use it when I need it I have one small complaint and it’s the new update. Whenever I’m about import an edit of mine it does a small little hop in the start, but the rest seems normal it’s just the beginning that’s all I hope you guys can fix that problem but other than that it’s works fluent 👌🏽👌🏽👌🏽
Kelskaz - Awesome app! Just a few issues..
Sometimes the app will crash on me for no reason, or sometimes after trying to edit a video. And other times, it’ll refuse to finish editing said video. I’ve only encountered these glitches in ONE session and never again. I love this app, it has THE BEST aesthetic VHS look in my opinion. One thing i’m hoping for is the addition of the ability to edit photos in a similar manner. Crossing my fingers!
Manley - Feeds your Nostalgia!
This is hands down one of my most favorite apps on my phone. I’ve always missed the videos of my childhood; this allows me to either record through the app or upload my own prerecorded videos, to give them that nostalgic retro feel of a traditional “on-the-shoulder camcorder” look! Great job at making a quality application!😁
RoBtaL14 - Great app
I bought the paid version. Honestly worth it, it’s four bucks. Skip coffee for a day it boom you’ve got an app with various filters, a PAUSE SHOOT BUTTON which for me is something I missed so much from older cameras!! I do wish I could have a version of the base filter without the static, but it’s a minor gripe. All in all, it’s pretty much exactly what I was looking for.
jazmini24444 - Please help!
I really like this recording app, but something happened. I recorded about 2 minute long video it was really important because I recorded my family reaction knowing that they’re going to see their daughter that haven’t seen in 10 years. Then, when I stopped the video the video wasn’t saved in the gallery right now I don’t know how to tell my family member that I don’t have the video. I paid a 3 dollars for this app please VHS help me get this video back.
ScottIrving - Needs a few things, but perfect otherwise
10/10 filter. The footage looks like a steaming pile of magnetic garbage (in a good way). But there are a few features that could improve the app. There should be a way to change the time, and also a quick way to recenter the text. Other than that, the app is perfect.
Grandpa Yoongi ♥️ - App Keeps Crashing :(
Hi! I don’t know if this will get read, but I’m an editor. In my spare time, I like to make video edits and I absolutely love the VHS effect/filter! I bought this app because I’ve seen many other editors use it, their projects always come out looking nice :) But the thing is, it keeps crashing and I have no idea why. When I try to import a clip, the app will close by itself and it’s getting annoying now :/ idk what to do 🥺 Is there any way I can fix this?
José Del Toro - I LOVE IT BUT...
I ABSOLUTELY LOVE THIS APP. I have never written a review for any app but this one is definitely worth writing. It does exactly what you want it to do! The only downside about this app would be the fact that you can’t have your music playing on your device while recording or even when the app is just opened. Other then that 12/10 recommend.
Nukey McMeltface - Amazing app! Needs a little optimizing though.
This app is so fun to use, I’m currently using it to make funny videos about the late 1990s and early 2000s video camcorders. However, I have encountered some bugs and crashes. It might be because I’m on the new iPhone SE and I’m currently on the latest version of iOS (13.4.1), which this app has had an update for. Besides that, get the app, it’s really entertaining.
Wes_and_his_iPhone - Great app!
I searched and searched and searched for a video layover app that would make it look like an old VHS tape. I found a lot, but this one is the best. For the price, what you get and the quality of the video (which you want to be bad) this is the app to get it. I downloaded them all to test them out side by side in this one won! Just wish it had more customization options towards the video.
Sgt. Whiskerberries - the best retro vhs style video app
Has a really deep amount options - to use high quality audio, shoot horizontal or vertical and for authenticity to choose whether the title is on/off or blinking. It covers anything I could do with an old VHS camcorder (except possibly fade to grey or black) - lastly its actively being updated and improved which is five stars alone
Invoke99 - Please Read
This app is really kool, however one thing I noticed nobody ever says or mentions is how u can’t play music wile recording. It would be so much better if u can record n play music in the background, instead of having a really silent video or u having to talk throughout the video. Sometimes you just want t record something without having to talk or have it quiet, Please fix that or give us a option to play music wile being used.
cool dude awesome guy - Great app
Great app, does exactly what I want it to do. The various filters and the options to change the date and title customization is a great feature. I only wish there was an option to completely remove the static from the screen and only have the vhs film grain effect. Other than that it’s a near perfect app 👍
Jumbo shren - Lots of fun
There are some glitches which if you learn to work with it makes the videos more interesting. If you use the pause button a lot the picture will scramble but you can usually pause if it does it for too long. Kinda makes it more unpredictable and fun to play around with.
Lil G Co - Allow music to be played while recording.
Is there a way I would be able to play music at the same time while recording off this app? If there is not, it would be very essential if y’all could make it possible. Other than that, the app runs very smoothly and I love using it!
Chuck LaWayne - Time limit??
I’m absolutely satisfied with everything about this app. My only question is about the time limit. I shot for about 20 minutes last night within the app and the video never showed up once I finished. I converted an older video that was the same length but the quality wasn’t dirty enough after conversion. Am I doing something wrong??
i love you ♡︎ - buzzing?
hello! I’ve been using the app for about 3/2 weeks now? which has been amazing! I love the effects :) but I just tried to put one on a video and in the back of it there’s buzzing...? it wasn’t in the original video... I asked my friend if she heard it as well and she did so if y’all could please fix it or something :( I don’t want my edits to have buzzing in the background!

k_mya - FIX THE POSITION OF THE DATE FOR WIDE OPTION
Hey, this app is so amazing and easy to use but please in the next update move the date to the actual corner of the phone for wide option PLEASEEE it’s so annoying when it’s literally in the middle of the video it just looks off so please and add ratio sizings and let us move the date around pleasseee that’d be sooooooo much easier and gives us more freedom paid $6AUD and kindaaaaa unhappy that I couldn’t change the effects or move the date so please add it thank you
Mad John - Lots of fun
A lot of fun, and oddly makes me want to make more home videos of the family in tacky “Uncle with a camcorder” style. Only thing I don’t like is that “play” pops up every time you hit record - when you put your clips all together it means it pops up constantly! Otherwise the image is great - very authentic feeling!
COCO-FISHO - Really good
When I first got this app I had no problems, I make edits and I obviously want to send them to my camera roll. But when I press play after recording an edit it doesn’t show up, it says ‘no videos’ and it isn’t in my camera roll either. Is there anything I’m doing wrong?
neonshadows - Authentic
Excellent effect; some of the features could be easier/clearer (processing multiple files at once, adding text at specific times). An option to use the photos metadata as the time stamp, instead of the time you process it through the app would be awesome, too
Jesus_saves_bro - Old Is The New!
I’m majorly impressed with this app. So many variations with how you can transform your smart device camera for a cheap price, into an obsolete VHS camcorder!
The downfalls, you can’t play music over it like Snapchat does. You cannot edit your films also with the inclusion of music.
one for everyone - Reliable and nostalgic
Overall a really great app.
Definitely recommend this to those of you who lives through the camcorder and VHS era. Super nostalgic.
Things that could be improved:
Could use more variety when it comes to image static and noise. Would love to see more noise randomisation and perhaps more manipulation tools.
The interface buttons. I think they’re going for the retro aesthetic, but it falls short.
Overall a great app and I hope it is still being developed because there is a gap in the market and the people love this aesthetic at the moment.
nathomano - worth it!
to be honest, for what you're getting is worth it. there are a lot of features that are accessible, including filters, video ratios, and text.
one take-away is the price. from what i remember is that it was around $7-9 aud, and it was pricey. i had tried to search for a better app, but honestly, nothing beats this app.
if your choices have become limited, and if you want an app with more than just a vhs camera effect, this app has what you're looking for.
Stephen Ore - Trending
Been using it since i found it years ago, now I've started to see plenty of instagram videos with this app in use. Next move is to get my hands on an actual camcorder
DINEENY - Most accurate VHS App on the store
I love vhs cameras, and I’ve gone through a lot of apps to manipulate a vhs camera. A lot of apps are way off. This app has been the closest to an actual vhs camera, and it’s definitely worth the money!!
Wattsaayy - Fun... Maybe we could get some more features?
It’s a good bit of nostalgic fun, done well and done right!
We definitely could see some more features implemented? More filters maybe? :)
and873672 - So good
Amazing worth paying for only thing I’d change is to be able to make videos from camera roll
marrokiu2.0 - Been using this app since brand new in 2015
it’s worth the money and you can do a lot of projects with this app
Marfield000 - Awesome Video App!!
I love it!! Please add 60fps option on the upcoming update and an upscale of 4K if possible. Also if possible remove the “play” when start recording.
AlexanderWWW - Awesome App, Few Improvements To Make It 5 Star !
- in app feedback button
- Instagram story / Facebook story sharing, integration and 1:1 aspect ratio
- needs all the social sharing tools
- needs varying types of vhs and colour spaces
- needs simple colour edits
- needs a truly native iPad app with regular updates
- needs more anamorphic flaring type effects
hamo826 - Audio in imported video is out of sync
When I imported a video into the app and then saved it to my camera roll, the audio was out of sync to the person who was talking. Please fix
Adamhillsfan - Blast from the past!!!
Wow I can't explain how much I love this app. It's worth the money to buy it. Just add a couple of more things:
1. Add a title into the video recording.
2. When you fast forward and rewind you get a high pitch sound from the video can you add that please?
Other than that, Great app!!
shoorjodg - VHS app review
This app used to be so amazing, BUT then they made a rubbish update which meant that I could no longer merge pre recorded videos with the VHS filter without the video becoming stretched and flipped in the wrong orientation - please fix this issue!! Besides this, the app is really cool
ding2205 - Amazing mate 🇦🇺
This is An Amazing vhs app and most accurate one yet!
One suggestion is to add comet tails or light-streaking if possible but above all great app
Fabledhail239 - Love it
It’s really well done. When payed for there is so much stuff to mess with. This is feckin great
katsadgirl - Great app!
Love this app so far, still figuring it out and so much fun
jaht08 - Nice app but crashes a lot
Not worth the money if it’s gonna crash every second time you go to import a video. If it didn’t crash as much, it would an awesome app.
__billie - help pls lol
are you able to upload videos from your camera roll to the app so you can use the filter on videos that were filmed on the normal camera?
if not, that would be amazing
Pazzlethespazzle52 - Doesn’t even save videos
Horrible app! It crashes everytime I try to save an imported video or it says it can’t save it. Very disappointing and a waste of money.
AstonHawkins - Video not saving!
I’ve been trying to process a video from my gallery and it will only save 2 seconds! (I have enough storage)!
SPOD The Online Genius - Great app, but still needs a few more features
If you could turn off the tracking lines, change the saturation and turn off the play title at the beginning, this would be really useful. The zoom is amazingly perfect, and I was going to shoot a video on it, but the distortion and desaturation is too much, so i’ve got to use an actual VHS cam as it’s more subtle, ridiculously enough.
JoeBachhal - Fantastic Application
love it and satisfied
4ntho170 - Greatest Cam App ever!!!!
It is so realistic
beysusedits - trash new version.
the previous versions compared to the new one were soooo much better, why did they ruin it. if it ain’t broke don’t fix it... the new filters are horrible. fix that asap
wired0504 - screen recordings
the recorder itself is great but the app crashes every time i try to convert a screen recording into a vhs style clip. very disappointed, paid money for this app.
Jungukk - Question
Why wont it let me import a video?
zoejrhhd - review
not a fan of the new version. that rainbow effect is way too intense, in fact it’s almost blinding and it’s too bright. the previous version was much better.
Gsgjensbgduehsn - read rn
the recent update is so bad, i want it to go back to before the update. preferred it then. the filters are terrible.
BirdmanPajamaPants - RarevisionVHS
Great app. VHS is my fave effect.
Greens ale - amazing
looks so real
ChrisToTheGToTheDoubleDoubleC - Great App!
a e s t h e t i c
sylkwincc - 🤬🤬🤬🤬🤬
can’t save the videos that I imported in!
Deathingerman - Great Ap
Great ap, but would be even better if you could import video from the camera roll. Added feature for future release would make this ap even better!
nikkirowexo - Great app, but:
I feel like there should be more customisation - like an option to add a Rec button to the corner, saturation levels of the video, saving options. I think an option to upload and edit previous made videos should also be an option.
RedNutz82 - Worth downloading
Really good quality App. App details are great. Menu system is easy to use and has some cool options. Looks really authentic and takes me back to the 80's. Get this App if your keen for something a bit different. Really good job on this one guys.
AFXAcid1 - Suggestion: color adjustment
I was watching some home videos from 1994 and I noticed the colors were very bright and saturated, while in this app they are pretty dull. A color adjustment feature would be nice.
Extreme person - EVERYBODY READ IF YOU WANT TO EXPORT TO CAMERA ROLL!
Guys I just found this awesome exploit for this awesome app! All you have to do is record a video, then delete it in the app, then check your recently deleted videos in camera roll! Then just press recover!!
ca11um666 - Great aesthetic but needs improvement
The looks and settings of this app are perfect. The only issue I have is with an error that means any video I try to record that spans longer than a minute does not save. If this could be rectified the app would be perfect
Bro-Dee Jay - Wish i could import photos!
Amazing app! Needs an edit photo option. Make it happen ;)
JaseO'Donnell - So authentic, so awesome
Love everything about this. So much attention to detail. The colour, the distortion, and the speckles/tape artefacts are all so great. My first video creeped me the hell out. And I love the way tilting the phone messes the video up more.
Tom - Australia - Needs more features, need to be able to add previously recorded videos
And it also doesn't save original footage without the vhs edit. I want to be able to add my own footage I record outside of the app. When I go to film something I don't automatically think "I want this to be in vhs"
Lochiedonovan - Needs more features
Unhappy that i paid $5 and not even able to import videos into it, i dont straight away think to open the app and then film, i want to be able to film then import videos into the app
edward.elston - Awesome app, just like the 90's!
If you're after a nostalgia blast, check it out.
typer the destroyer - REALLY GOOD
this app is soo good if you want like a 90's - 00's kinda vibe in your videos
i always use it
the only downside is the price but it's honestly worth it

Benny Bada$$ - Supa lit 🔥
Not much to say, if u looking for a retro / throw back feel this the app to get. No regrets 🙏🏿
reel.66 - REVIEW
i love this app it does a lot perfectly the only fault id give it is that you cant record audio that is playing off your phone the way you would on an app like snapchat, second when lighting is poor the app barely picks up on anything would be interested in some new filters as well please keep updating the app i use it everyday on my instagram @reel.66
jmoaiki - Awesome
I love this app so realistic
Countingcook - Can import videos now
Officially making this the best vhs app on the App Store. Most realistic anyways, compared to all other apps.
too.late - Awesome!
Great app. Looking forward to (possible?) future features! :) Though, while it really only does one thing, it does it well.
Kurran1998 - Really Nostalgic!!
This app is pretty cool and very nostalgic, I can’t wait to see more updates for it. 📹📼
Charlie Appleton - love
HorizonCorp - Awesome app
I use this app to trick people into thinking I am a time traveller. It works.
SinnyMinny223 - Uhm
It’s starting to lag bad...
Jurassic Jory - fantastic
Been using for years. Great app.
FQAjtHFRDg - unable to import videos?
i love this app, was trying to import some of my videos however and then the app just sends me back to the main screen? i’m so confused and also upset because it was working fine yesterday.
L8876 - Keyboard malfunction
They keyboard keeps glitching the app and blocking the screen whenever you tap the menu button. Please fix it
take the app down bums - the app is worth it
the app is definitely worth the cost n you should think about buying it
Purowave - Easily the best "vintage look" money can buy
I've been using VHS Cam for a lot of footage I need downgraded visually for a VHS aesthetic. The customizable options make it the perfect program to use for an authentic retro look for your videos.
🤠yeeht🤠 - Nice
Looks realistic enough. But I feel like it would be more realistic if there wasn’t any grain. Or if the grain wasn’t so prominent. And the blue and red outlines. Idk if yk what I’m talking about but there’s a but of a red and blue filter that outline the things that are visible on the camera. I’m not sure if you know what I’m talking about but if you do it would be great if you got rid of it or make a setting to turn it on and off. And with the graininess please make a setting to turn it off. Good app. Just wished it was more realistic. But it’s realistic enough
VibinWitJ - THE EFFECTS 🤩
10000/10 this is AWESOME for my edits 😝
koo luvr - Great App
uwu its amazing 🥺
hehebfbenej - Best app
This is the app you’ve been looking for. One time 5$ charge, and you’re set
leiyahbug - Yas kween
this app is worth the money if u are a vhs editor 😃👍
Boring👎👎👎👎👎 - amazing
price doesn’t matter when it’s an app like this, amazing edits were made when i downloaded
Unsatisfied or Satisfied - Surprisingly worth it
ngl i was sus about this app and how pricey it was, but i took the risk, n honestly it’s AMAZING! Worth the money, you could do a lot even tho it seems u can’t, but u rlly can. I recommend this app for that vintage, old skool vibes! Oh n they fixed the glitches, everything works great for me, i have a iphone X.
Lady looloo - I love
Rikaaholic - Amazing
It actually works but I’m having problems where when I insert a video it turns it a different direction
clrb15 - Noice!!!
The truest and best version of a VHS quality app I have used. The paid version also has lots of features and filters that are truly worth it!!!!
tk256377378 - Incredible!!
Full version well worth the price.
MuradA1996 - Great App
I love the fact that you pay once, no subscription nonsense. Great app, easy to use.
urawizardharry!! - pls
very good for my edits
mattchelor - Problem recording long videos
I love the app, but when I important bigger files or longer videos, or even record long videos, it just gives and error and asks me if my storage is full. It’s not even close to full. Kinda wish I could record long videos :/ otherwise it’s a great app
GreenHat64 - Good good.
Ggggggg9898989 - terrible
i keep trying to delete this app and it keeps coming back 😭
evangelineb - good for vintage looking filmz
HomeGrown666 - I like it
I like it a lot
AaronTlucko - I enjoy.
Simply to use and very funny. One downside is that it will crash with certain imports of videos from your camera roll. Other than that I love this app!
xiet on soundcloud <3 - fire
trust me, fireeee
N word pass giver - Rating
Cool app overall
xXAirFreshXx - Importing videos is completely broken
Every time I import a video it crops it and cuts out a whole bunch of content. Broken app yet it costs so much
hxfnnjfdfvnnh - ❤️
a good app ;)
Low✨ - Amazing
I wasn’t sure if it was worth the price because when I saw 5$ for a VHS app my jaw dropped . But it’s worth it it works so well it looks just like the filters that people use for the VHS instagram edits this is honestly worth the money and I recommend, the people that complain about it crashing probably have a trash phone .. sorry bruh🥺.
steveras - Love it
Loving this app. The Negative filter is trippy
Sam Trollenberg - Fantastic and Fun!
This is a great application! I’ve been using it for over a year now, and I have zero complaints! It’s easy to use and understand, and the effects are very well done! Please don’t pass this app by, it’s excellent!
human being (maybe) - Two things
First thing is I feel like we should be able to upload photos rather than just videos
Second thing is I think it would be cooler if we could put it back past 1984 even tho it doesn’t make sense I still want to lol
jinaswan - Great app
I honestly love this app so much. You can customize your fps and a bunch of other things. It’s really does a good job at hovering the whole vintage vibe
Bob Martel - Perfect
I love it 🙌
Dylan Monteith - Great app
Castlelight - Simply fantastic!!!
I can’t get over how accurate this is! So freaky! Love it!!!
jaxistotalymybirthname - Idfk
It would be nice if I could switch the effects right on the screen instead of having to go to another screen, other than that I really like the app
n vas's CDT red - Epic
I had to buy this as soon as i got the free version its so cool
Jaltwa - Love it!
Great app ! Would love if I could record the device’s audio like Snapchat and also if I could search the albums in my camera roll when importing.
nabfor r - Love it
I didn’t think it was worth buying this app till I noticed you could put your own words, like I needed an app that did that. Thanks really love it

Sony Santana - The best retro camera out there
I think this is the best retro camera out there because it has almost all the features that I wanted in a retro camera app. I would really love it they do more filters and more options on the app. Other that that I think the app is awesome and it just have what you are looking for!
Mya-Li - Good app but don’t like the new update!
I’ve been using this app for a long time. I love the filters because they add such a fun effects for your videos! But the update is weird and I don’t really like how the changed the filters:( If you would go back to the original filters I would be so happy!
4amdrive - It works
I use this for my instagram videos. I take the videos I have and edit them on iMovie then when the movie is edited and complete I upload it to vhs and run it through that way. Upload it straight to Instagram and the video quality is legit! I guess it could use more filters?
Zackbag - I love this app but
Since downloading this app I have absolutely loved all of its features and style although just recently it has began to stop working for me and not letting me import any new videos. A recurring error message saying “this video cannot be imported due to its in encoding” if anyone has any insight on how to fix this error for me that would be greatly appreciated!
Grei5on - Exactly what I wanted
This app is amazing. It’s definitely worth the money in my opinion. I love all the features, my favorite being the pause and play feature. My friend and I are recording a video project for class and this is EXACTLY what we needed. If you’re looking for a great vhs camera app this is definitely for you! Love love love it!!!
Valllerry - Hey read mine:)
Hey I really like the app but I’m really asking And PLEASE PLEASE if you could do that I would be so happy if you can turn your app like into the pro version I’ve been wanting to do this but my friend -gifted me this app and I’ve been wanting the pro please if you could like do the pro version and change it PLEASE 🙏🙏🙏
iiniaii27 - Worth The Money.
If you want the old vintage look this is totally it. Buying pro allows u to have so many varieties like titlers and filters. It gives a cute old time video and u can even import stuff from your camera roll which is a bonus. Just get the pro its so freaking worth it
Flombard - Retro done right
I only leave reviews if something is really wrong or really right. This app is really right. Effects aren’t too processed or cheesy. Everything works well. It’s authentic, easy to use, and hits on that nostalgia factor. Best of all? 4 bucks for everything. No BS subscription model. Get it. You deserve it.
SamPatton - fantastic except
When you import a video, it time stamps it with the current date and time, NOT the date and time of the original video. That’s a bummer. It’s minor, but I was hoping to go back and convert a number of old videos, and I don’t want them to have the wrong date and time.
Th app does let you spoof the date but not the time, so I can’t manually change things unfortunately
Rudy V garcia - I was doubting about this app
I was honestly doubting this app! I use Final cut pro x to edit my videos and i was trying to do the old style video but it would take forever! I paid to try to import my edited video and then process it through the app and let me tell you its a time freaking saver ❤️❤️❤️
garzgarbear - Good!
This is one of the few apps I’ve ever purchased, and it was definitely worth it. I think I’ve only used it a handful of times to record a minute or so of some of the small concerts I’ve gone to and it definitely adds a cool effect to post to the gram. Would recommend
BLACK WIDOW GIRL 147 - The editing process goes too fast
I wish we had the option to use the filter/vhs at our own pace. It goes way too fast and you end up having to rush to press the button however many times throughout the video. If it just went at the normal pace or we at least had an option too, it would definitely be a 5 star app.
i.heart.guitar. - Genuinely a 5-Star App
Everything has been done to nail the look, sound, and feel of an old camcorder shooting to tape. Rarevision nailed it. So vibey. Not sure what someone was saying about the font not being 80’s enough lol 😆❔❔ This matches my Dad’s camcorder from the 90’s perfectly. If you want a deadly-accurate VHS app, this is it.
Josh 968648)86 - It’s actually pretty amazing.
It’s fun and amazing. No it’s not a fake review, I’ve been using this app for the longest and it’s never failed at making a video perfectly vhs like. It’s definitely a kinda app for grunge like people. It’s definitely a well made app with its settings and I would definitely recommend it
Blurayman20 - Original Beta User
I have loved this app since it first came out. Simply incredible! However can we please get an upload video feature that applies the effects? That would take it to the next level! Again I love the app and I have used it since 2017!
BENEFiELDAVON - Cool
It’s a cool app it just needs to load quicker to get to photo library. And when I choose a video of mine from photo library it uses whatever filter I had set on the camera and it doesn’t let me edit anything when I choose a video. Also it ignores all edits I did to a video before using it here. If I crop a video and shortened it’s length in my photo library. This app ignores all of it.
AidanFalco - Hi There!
Hi Rarevision, I have been asking this as well, I want to change the text even though there is a option to do that. But I want different text instead of the whatever it’s called. I want there to be different text options instead of just one.
Anonymous - Almost perfect
I love this app it really is amazing, it’s worked well except one little thing, when I import a video for some reason it crashes me out idk why , other than that the app works fine, it’s just that annoying bug that made me drop to a 4 star, hope you fix it soon! :)
DaveAllardice - No portrait mode!
No portrait mode is a major bummer as now I have about 75% less use for this app. Easy to use. Simple interface. Lacks portrait mode though. Can’t believe this isn’t an option especially with Instagram stories being portrait. I should maybe have checked the description first but thought that would be an option for sure.
GabeKing773962 - Best Camera App!
This is by far the coolest, easiest to use camera app. I personally always HATED using camera apps that didn’t come with my phone, until this one. It’s so easy to use and the effects are perfect! I bought the premium version and i will never regret it!
Kil Capri - Was Amazing Before The Update 😢
I had this app since it was free, I got a new phone and new apple ID a came to find out they charge and I don't really pay for apps but I paid for this one because it was the best one and looked very authentic.. 3 weeks later y'all update it and now it is terrible it just looks like a Instagram filter. I never rate or do reviews but I really want y'all to change it back it looks awful now y'all had the best for years now it looks as bad as all the other ones.. MAKE VHS CAM GREAT AGAIN 📹
NotoriousMiguel - Great app that could be even greater
I think it would be super cool if you can switch from selfie to not selfie as you record. I also think a wider array of filters would be awesome but the app rocks! It's super nostalgic and functionality wise it's pretty much perfect , it would
Be cool if there was added aspects to make it more fun ! Can't wait for the updates
Sky Adams - I’ve been having a problem :(
The app is nice and the filters are pretty but lately I’ve been having a problem. Whenever I try to add the filters to my videos, the app just shuts down and takes me back to my phone’s home screen. I pay money for a subscription I have in this app so it shouldn’t not let me add to my original videos. I hope it gets fixed soon because it’s really aggravating.
Peculiar21 - I love this app!
I purchased this app just before a vacation to Disney World in order to get some videos of my family. All my videos are great and have an old fashioned family look to them. They remind me of tapes of me as a child at Disney and I couldn’t have asked for more. Love it! 💕
realcameraguy - Underrated
First off, I’d like to say that I never leave reviews for apps. I’ve been using this app since it’s early stages and it’s been fantastic. Tons of features, nice customizable UI, and incredibly realistic vhs simulation. I really don’t know why this app doesn’t have more positive reviews.
Shalobs - Nearly perfect!
My only comment is that when you use an old video and convert it, the date should be of that date, instead it will give you the current date at the moment which means you have to go back and figure out the exact date and modify it yourself
Erielle💗 - It’s good but one thing ,
I like this app! I use it for edits and to put a vhs filter over them.. but when I try to import a video or image it won’t let me do it. I even long press it and it doesn’t work. And every time I go on the app ,, (even when I deleted it and download it again) it freezes and doesn’t let me take a picture or a video and kicks me out of the app.
Zacksrevenge - This app is great, but we have a problem
First of all, I love this app. It really helps with expressing a unique style.
But literally every single time I try to import a video it either crashes immediately or only imports 1-2 seconds worth of the video (also making the video very choppy on top of that). This definitely needs to be fixed or might just give up on the app.
MeYei - Awesome & Nostalgia satisfying app
Not as many ‘useable’ filters as I would like. Not very intuitive app to use either, but once you get it’s way it’s easier. I’d love to see an update with more clear filters, less distortion of the moments being captured. I am pleased by this app, and fine with the amount I paid for what I get.
lil sayce - LOVE IT
This app is amazing it can edit your videos and pictures from camera roll, you can take videos and pictures on the app as well. This app has to so many good things for aesthetic editors or edits wanting to start making aesthetic videos
SnaggyBrony102 - Best one out there
If you mostly work off your phone and can’t afford Adobe AE, this is the camera for you.
I’ve been using this since its first version, and it gets more and more real with every update. I will never delete this camera.
ilyhkka - One problem
This app is really good and I bought it to create my edits, but I’m having an issue. I imported cropped videos(making the shape square instead of as big as my screen) but when I import them, they become full screen again, as if I never cropped them. Is there a way I can get rid of this?
DGuyBHindU - Good! But..
this app is literally my favorite for video taking although I purchased it to be able to import my video but it default saves them in portrait mode I wish I had the option to decide to import in landscape because it auto edits them & the video gets stretched and it looks ugly than that I love the app. PLEASE FIX THIS
kalonseok - pretty good but
the main reason i want this app is to add the vhs effect to edits i make that i prepare on my phone but everytime i go to import a video from my phone, i click on the video i wanna do and the app instantly closes. i think it could be because i have a very large amount of videos saved on my phone and the app can’t handle it and load them all but it’s incredibly frustrating how the app will just close and won’t even do it :( i just paid $3.99 for this app which may not seem like a lot but that is for me and now the one thing i want from this app, it won’t even do it 😭 i really hope i can get this to work somehow someday soon
Cake46 - Only films landscape mode
I love this app, but why is it that, although able to film vertically, the end results doesn’t show vertically? Only horizontally or landscape mode. For example when I uploaded my videos on Snapchat it turns them upside down. Why is that?
champagnekid.6 - Vhs Title issue.
Great app with the nostalgic 80’s vibe to it! I love playing with the app and editing a bunch of videos. This is the video editing app I’ve been lookin for 🔥🔥. However, whenever I change the title name on the video & try to get rid of my keyboard the app just freezes & wont let me use the app until I close it and reopen it.
Klorthoe - Yeah so
I hate apps that ask you to review what you paid for. If I don’t review it, it’s cause I have no complaints. But since you keep interrupting my creative streamline of thought to have me write this review I will write this: Your app crashes a lot, you need to fix the bug and crash that occurs whenever you switch out to one app and back to this. Otherwise I work around it. Other than that, leave me alone with constant asking for an app review. Put a never option there
mrpuppyfan - A suggestion
So when you’re recording you can pause and unpause so when you pause it you can go to menu and type some stuff over and over so you can chat with the viewer like it’s talking to you
HeroicStar - A super cool app with an aggravating bug.
I like this app. It's old school cool but what this app does not do well is save videos!!! I lose a video if I accidentally minimize the app before it's done saving. I lose the video if I get a low storage warning. I lose the video, well, for no reason at all. I feel like when I do use the app for taking videos, it's about a 40% success rate of actually being able to see the video later!!!
JxVenator - Amazing video app with an iconic vibe
Downloaded the app after seeing several pieces of content that had been created with the apps effect, after using the app, I was able to create cool and interesting videos for social media
alohanikolas - Videos from camera roll won’t import :(
Hi I’m having trouble with the app, I’ve recorded a few videos & ive actually tried recording new videos & they won’t save. Also I tried importing videos & they won’t save either :( any suggestions? But overrall I love the app, it’s helping with making a lot new content
Haroldhelicopter - Disappointing
I was very excited to get this app, and it works alright, but I soon found that it is impossible to upload videos without it crashing. The latter is the entire reason that I bought this app, and I would be fine with that if there wasn’t a hefty price of $3.99. I will not be deleting this app, but I do hope that future updates will improve on this.
Dustie_bunny - Does what it’s supposed to.
Quick and easy VHS look and feel, plus the ability to import videos and add effect.
My only wish is a slider to determine % of effect. Some videos it’s great, some i would love to be able to turn the effect down about halfway.
Still a great, user friendly app.
icemya - Great app with upgrade issues
I love this app so I brought the full version. It clearly said UPGRADE. But it downloaded a new version, leaving all the old videos I recorded stuck in the old app without the ability to export it or screen record it. Very disappointed in that because I paid for the upgrade so I could export the videos I already recorded.
mrko_03 - Best app for throwback
This app meets your expectations when purchased, it allows you to do your goal of going back in time and allowing you to give yourself your own aesthetic, personally I give it five stars because it deserves it
idonotknowwhatmynameshouldbe - Cool...but the free version is useless
Easy and fun to use. I was a little hesitant to buy the full version but I do not regret it. I have no clue if this is the apps fault of my chord but when I take a video from them and put it on your computer the quality is super low. But it’s still cool and fun to play with.
C3PL - Great VHS style video app
The app has a bunch of cool features, different texts, time stamps, new effects and filters that give you all kinds of old school VHS flavors. I used it for a short film meant to look like it was a shot on videotape and it worked perfectly.
tydollah - Nice and easy to use
Really captures the nostalgia like you popped in a vhs from the 90’s. Only thing I wish would be fixed is sometimes the audio doesn’t sync up with the video and it’s distracting when I film skateboard clips.
Auproma - A must have
As a videographer, cinematographer, and as a guy who misses tape based cameras, I have a lot of fun with this app. It saves the time of trying to recreate the same effect in my editing software and is better to get many kinds of shots with. Highly recommended.
Peachcurls - It’s cool, stop acting like it’s not.
The 90’s were tight. I think there was something about watching videos with chase quality that made you feel all warm inside. This app is cool for that. Maybe I’m a hipster, or maybe I just loved my childhood. Who’s to say?
