FiLMiC Pro is an outstanding video app that exploits the benefits of the iPhone’s camera, while giving filmmakers more control. The app aims to give you as much manual control over your iPhone’s video-shooting capabilities as possible, to create a similar experience to using professional-grade equipment.
Three shooting modes allow you to control the exposure and focus in various ways. Full Frame bases them on information from the entire frame; Single Reticle uses a reticle fixed in the centre of the frame; and Double Reticle provides two reticles that you can move around the frame to set focus and exposure separately. Other advanced features give you even more control. The ability to select different frame rates, for example, is a valuable option. You can also choose from four different resolutions and corresponding bitrates.
