Anyone who’s serious about taking videos on their iOS device would agree that FiLMiC Pro for iPhone and iPad leaves Apple’s stock Camera app in the dust.

The filmmakers’ go-to app, this ultimate video recording and editing software has become even better thanks to yesterday’s update which brought out a redesigned user interface along with a number of new features.

The update includes iPhone 7-exclusive capabilities such as gamma curve controls for Natural, Dynamic, Flat and LOG (a first for mobile video), live adjustments for Shadow, Highlight, RGB, Saturation and Vibrance curves, temporal noise reduction up to 1080p resolution and more.

The app’s overhauled interface with dual arc sliders is faster and gives you more precise manual control while shooting videos than in previous releases. The new controls make it easy to use variable speed focus pulls, zoom moves and more. Placing these most commonly used controls at your fingertips makes the app so much easier to use.

Aside form the overhauled UI, FiLMiC Pro 6.0 sports a bunch of pro-grade enhancements.

For instance, you get ramped zoom rocker control, a dedicated CMS for file naming, a Filmic Sync feature for saving present data in cloud to share between devices, clip favoriting, batch uploading to supported share services and more. Oh, and the waveform monitors  now included in tri-mode histogram.

A suite of new Live Analytics options available in FiLMiC Pro 6.0 includes such tools as Zebra Stripes, Clipping, False Color and Focus Peaking. While requiring Apple’s A8 processor and newer, these real-time analytics capabilities will help pro filmmakers get the best shot in terms of quality.

Other features exclusive to iPhone 7 and iPhone 7 plus are available with an optional In-App Purchase: new gamma curve controls for Natural, Dynamic, Flat and LOG, live shadow, highlight, RGB, saturation and vibrance adjustments and temporal noise reduction up to 1080p resolution.

FiLMiC Pro 6.0 also includes a new white balance adjustment matrix with programmable and custom presets, advanced image control options such as color temperature and much, much more.

A $9.99 Cinematographer Kit upgrade is available with the ability to make real-time adjustments of color and tone to achieve a professional look and other features that seamlessly integrate the app into a colorist’s workflow with support for apps like Final Cut Pro, Adobe Premiere Pro and DaVinci Resolve.

Specifically, the in-app upgrade comes with support for FiLMiC LOG (a first for mobile video), plus pro-grade features such as RGB channel adjustment, shadow/highlight recovery, temporal noise reduction, total curve section and white/black point adjustment.

FiLMiC Pro is hands down the best pro video camera app for iPhone. To learn how to master its capabilities and shoot stunning videos on the go, you’re wholeheartedly recommended to sign up for the Epic Guide to FiLMiC Pro V6 from Epic Tutorials.

As mentioned, today’s update is free to existing users of the app.

FiLMiC Pro 6.0 is available for $14.99 download on App Store.

    I bought this apps few months ago, following recommendations on another similar tech site. And I have to admit it’s the first time I think money were completely wasted. The app definitely doesn’t cost the price they ask – it’s max price is 3$. This new update I was hoping for some changes – right, silly me. Anything iPhone 7 related will cost me another 10$. Is the new UI any better? Hell no, those dials, especially when you change iso and shutter speed are totally awful.

    And you will be surprised find out that in such an expensive app (15$ now) there is no support for manual exposure or shutter priority mode. If you select ISO, you actually locking it and dial start changing shutter speed. This is quite illogical, since usually you select something you want to modify. Oh, one more thing, now instead of knowing what bitrate you have, they changed to amateur eco, apple, high and extreme settings 🙂

    Well, to be fair, they finally changed a bug from previous version when app didn’t really support portrait orientation and its UI would not rotate with iPhone UI locked.

      I agree with you 100% and I even bought most expensive app called “Mavis ” they actually sucks

  • MoviePro is more better.

      Mark – I was playing with both apps – I’m not a pro as the image quality is the same – (I think) and I do notice that the MoviePro seems to have a ‘wider’ shot capture without any special lens – just the iPhone 6 24 fps 228% 1080 HD on Movie Pro. Am I right about this? What is your preference for MoviePro over FilmIc Pro?

    And it’s filled with bugs that make it lag, crash and make things aggravating as hell in general.
