  • Update to my review “needs one thing”

    By TopDownImagery
    I had to delete my other review cause I couldn’t figure out how to update a review only remove it....anyway On my last review I gave 4 stars because I felt the control between the osmo mobile 2 and the app were a bit “under par”, but admitted I know little of the controls for it and am willing to learn and would change my star rating to 5 if I learned there was more. Well here we are, and as I stated I changed my 4 to a 5. I learned some more about it and what I found is there is a function that pans the camera by twisting your hand rather than using the joystick “follow mode”. My issue was I was twisting my hand not knowing this and while doing this was trying to fight it with the joystick. Now that I know these features are there I’ll have smoother control between the two. My review on the app itself is the same as before. It is a great app and makes filming on a phone something amazing. I have bought this app on both android and now again on apple. Great app that makes your work look professional. Got my support
  • Poorly functionality choices by devs, and it crashes. Not worth the money.

    By joshfields.tbone
    Where to start. First, this has great potential, and I’m hopeful for future updates. There are tons of features for manual use, and it interfaces fairly well with my Zhiyun Smooth 4 gimbal (although it could be better). The quality is fantastic, you can choose your resolution and other settings individually, and adjustments while filming are fairly smooth considering it’s a phone. However, there are lots of bugs and it crashes quite frequently. Don’t use it to record any one-off events. Only use it if you can record multiple takes when it crashes or does something it shouldn’t. There are also some other issues that seem to be deliberate developer choices but make me question their sanity. First, there is no way to save default settings. Yes, you can set presets, but you’ll have to go in and enable that preset every single time you open the app. I can’t imagine anyone wants to have to change their settings every time they use the app. Want to quickly turn on your phone to grab a neat shot? Forget about it, it’ll take you 20 seconds to get everything ready to record. Second, if you accidentally reverse the camera to the front-facing camera, or into the “zoom” camera on iPhone X devices, it’ll will automatically revert to its own default settings. (Reminder, those aren’t the settings you want, or the ones you were JUST using a split second before. No, it’s the devs random choices). Third, enabling different settings, such as enabling optical zoom via the second lens, will negate some other settings without warning you. For example, you can’t zoom and record in 4k 60fps only 30fps. But if you select each lens separately, it works fine. But keeps the lower frame rate. So, don’t touch ANYTHING accidentally. Finally, and this is my complaint with many newer software products out there... the icons for on-screen controls are TERRIBLE. Expect to not be able to know your way around the app without significant trial and error, even if you’re a photographer/videographer with other product experience. The choices don’t really make sense most of the time, and icons are used where a single word would suffice. There are some other smaller issues as well, but these are the main ones. If the crashes get fixed, it’ll be my main app despite the nonsense, but it’s not worth the money at ALL given the alternatives.
  • Constant crash on iPhone XS Max

    By alee513
    I’d love to love this app. All these features, but I can use it because it crashes every time click on the color profile icon (bottom left). I have more than half of the storage space available, with the latest versions of the app and iOS. Frustrating!
  • needs more gimbal options

    love this app. the only thing i would like to see added is in the hardware list. would love to see the option for the feiyuteck AK2000. i use this app with my iphone 6s attached to the beast grip pro rig, which gives enough weight to work with the AK2000. if you could add that into the app, i would advertise the app on my website. 😀
  • Love it!

    By RinJERKS
    I love the many features and almost granular control that can be achieved through a cel phone video camera. I also love the many aspect ratios, including the old Ultra-Panavision ratio of 2.76:1!! I am still but a learner, but I also like the flat and log color modes for color grading. My cel phone with FiLMiC Pro is now my go-to for video capture. One feature I’d like to see would be something more along to RAW and/or HDR 10-bit, but I guess that’s a sensor issue, not a FiLMiC Pro issue. Great app!!
  • Freezes in under 10 seconds when using filmic remote

    By cba20k
    Unfortunately, since I don’t know which app is causing the freeze I have to leave the review for both but this is a big deal for anyone who might want to film themselves or be otherwise away from their phones while adjusting their settings. For reference, I’m attempting to shoot 4K filmic extreme on an iPhone X and using an 11 inch iPad Pro as a remote...well...technically I’m not since it doesn’t work.
  • I want a refund

    By CalebAnne
    This app has sent me through a wild goose chase for the past 3 days. I got the app because I wanted to lock the white balance because Apples software is awful. From the locking perspective this app is great. But there a several major issues which have had me hitting my head against the table. 1. The app wrecked my iphones file system. The moment I began recording my phone reported that I had no storage (even though I had plenty) and immediately offloaded nearly all my apps. When I restarted my phone it immediately readjusted my storage. I have never had this issue before and it occurs almost every time I film for about 5 minutes 4K 60fps. Mind that this issue does not occur when I use the native iPhone app. 2.Additionally I have the footage loaded into my camera roll as I see no way to get the footage off other that using the filmic cloud service which could take forever when using 4K footage. When I used the image capture app it continually crashed. I cannot use airdrop for anyfootage that is over 2k and more than a few minutes long. I absolutely cannot figure out any work flow strategy. 3. Final nail in the coffin. This app doesn’t support using a rhode microphone adapter!?!?! The native camera app does but filmic pro doesn’t? That is just plain silly. So now I have to choose between apples awful white balance and not having good audio? The idea here is great and very promising, but it will be a long time before I can touch this app again. This has been a huge waste of my time and really stressed me out. Please refund my $15.
  • Focus slide?

  • Excited and scared, but your team is amazing

    By Gil Velazquez
    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.
  • Too Glitchy

    By Another Poor Company
    In the little time I have used Filmic Pro I have endured pixelated remote control, exposure changes that could only be fixed by closing and starting the program, and crashing when going back and forth from video to viewing. Worse is the support, they don’t seem very eager to help. Oh well, many apps to choose from but please stop calling Filmic Pro the gold standard.
