Lots of avid iPhone photography fans don’t just use their iPhone, iPod touch or iPad to capture stills, but shoot video as well.

I usually fire up Apple’s excellent iMovie application ($4.99 universal binary) whenever my clips need touching up, but now a new software has come along to go beyond what you thought was possible on your iOS device.

Video Filters by i4Software packs in over a hundred fully customizable video effects with live previews, which is kinda big deal because only a few years ago nobody thought we’d be able to edit full HD footage on tablets, in real-time…

That’s just scratching the surface: Video Filters lets you apply filters, tweak settings on-the-fly and see the changes before you even hit the Record button.

A number of pro-grade features are at your disposal, such as slow and fast motion, video stabilization, the ability to pause and resume recordings, capture scenes in 24, 25 or 30 frames per second, change saturation, contrast, gamma and brightness in real-time (by long tapping and dragging up/down to select a filter in an on-screen menu) and much, much more.

In addition to recording your own clips, you can also import existing footage from your Camera roll and apply and number of effects and filters.

Here are a few live effects in Video Filters for iPad.

The app also works in landscape and portrait, lets you layer additional filters to the already filtered video, snap 1,920-by-1,080 pixel resolution photos with filters while shooting video (or full-res photos while paused) and more.

Your manual exposure, focus and white balance controls are a triple-tap away.

Among the pro-grade features: date and time overlays and GPS meta data (which is useful for scientific applications), to name a few.

Video Filters, a universal app supporting all form-factor iOS devices, costs four bucks.

That’s a dollar less than Apple’s iMovie software and a pretty reasonable price to pay to get camcorder-like features on your iPhone.

when was the last time you captured video using your iPhone?
