The Apple Design Awards Finalist 2023 app, Camo, uses the incredible cameras in your iPhone to produce pro-quality video, whether you’re meeting, streaming, or recording.
Joanna Stern, The Wall St. Journal – “how I do all my live TV hits”
MacWorld US – “full-featured, easy-to-use, and delightful”
9to5Mac – “an easy way to seriously improve your video call quality”
WIRED – “there are a number of apps which let you use your iOS device’s camera as your webcam, but the best one is Camo”
MacWorld UK – “an easy way to beef up the video quality on your calls”
With over 10 million users helped over the last decade, Reincubate is one of the UK’s most-loved software companies.
— EASY TO USE / PLUG AND PLAY / Wi-Fi —
No extra hardware needed, just connect your device to your Mac or PC. Choose between connecting wirelessly, for the most flexible experience, or opt for a trusty USB connection. With Wi-Fi connectivity, get set up for a call in seconds – no more looking around for a spare cable or a free port.
— POWERFUL ADJUSTMENTS & FILTERS —
Camo Studio gives you full control of your video, letting you adjust lenses, exposure, colours, contrast, and more; and it lets you zoom, crop, and focus your image precisely how you want it. Apply cinematic styling and color grading to your video with 18 bespoke filters, including support for custom Cube, 3DL, and LUT files.
— STAND OUT WITH SPOTLIGHT & PORTRAIT —
Use Spotlight to compensate for less-than-ideal lighting conditions, such as backlit or under-lit environments, by brightening yourself against your background. Portrait creates a sophisticated bokeh effect that cleanly separates you from the background and gives you full control over the depth of focus.
— VIRTUAL GREEN SCREEN AND PRIVACY —
Use Replace, Camo’s virtual green screen, to cleanly swap any image into your background. Or activate Privacy to cloak your surroundings with a pleasing diffused image effect. Both offer industry-leading performance, enabling video that foregrounds clarity without sacrificing appearance.
— FIND FREEDOM WITH AUTO FRAMING —
Camo’s auto-framing functionality keeps you at the center of the action, whether you’re shuffling around at your desk or presenting at a whiteboard. With a range of zoom options, you’ll remain firmly centered and proportioned on screen.
— COMPATIBLE WITH OVER 40 APPS —
Camo works perfectly with Zoom, Google Meet, Microsoft Teams, Safari, FaceTime, QuickTime, Chrome, OBS Studio, Streamlabs, Skype, Twitch, Panopto, ScreenFlow, Final Cut Pro X, and dozens of other video recording and streaming products.
— SECURITY AND PRIVACY FIRST —
Camo doesn’t know what you’re using it for, and doesn’t capture or transmit your video feed. It simply routes it from your iPhone to your computer. Your data is your business, not ours.
— NOT ONLY BUT ALSO! —
- Super low latency, high speed video with a range of resolutions
- Powerful presets to save and quickly switch to your favourite adjustments and settings
- Native support for iPadOS as well as your iPhone, and beautiful Dark Mode support throughout
- Camo offloads all processing to your iOS device, keeping your computer cool and fast
- Crop your video without losing quality with dynamic-resolution Smart Zoom
- Automatic image stabilisation minimises bumps and vibrations
- Virtually rotate your video without touching your device
- Switch between video from multiple iOS devices and lenses in real-time
- No ads in the app, not ever

- Fix: We’ve fixed some instances where the camera feed would briefly appear upside down after switching between lenses.
Ratings and Reviews
Great for online teaching
My monitor doesn't have a web came or a microphone and Camo let's me use my camera and its mic and it looks great and sounds great. Aside from using my iPhone 11 and mic the zoom feature is incredible. I teach guitar and other instruments through zoom and the ability so quickly zoom in super close on my fingers is a gigantic help! I don't use any other Camo features. It's nice to have color correction and all those other doo dads but I never use them. I have nice lighting in my studio so I never have to worry about that.
I give it 5 starts because it really is fantastic for me I just can't stand the subscription model of software. Sure, I could buy the lifetime use but, too me it's too much money for what the software does. I have other really sophisticated software I use that I paid less money for and I've been using those for years (with updates). Even $5 a month is steep to me but I make money using it so it makes sense.

Thank you for sharing your thoughts on Camo - it’s great to have you on board with us. Also, we do offer discounts for our monthly and annual subscriptions; just reach out to us at email@example.com.
I searched high and low for "the best" webcam when starting a new remote job this year. I have also tried many different brands over the years and simply never found one that excited me with the quality and features. Once started at my new job, they internally recommended Camo, which I had never heard of. I tried out the free version first and very quickly (and excitedly) paid for premium. I already had the best possible camera in my pocket, and now I could easily use it for all my web calls! The finetuning capabilities make this my absolute favorite option now, and I don't have to carry any additional cameras or cords when I travel, than the phone and cord I already have on every trip to begin with. Thanks for making such a great app, Camo Team!!!

Superior web cam
I compared this to epocam which is used with the elgato family of products and vcam. Reincubate is superior. It has a very natural looking depth of field background blur whereas the other two pixelated the area around the portrait.
It has only one downside, which was still not enough to knock it down a star, which is that it requires a wired connection from your phone to your Mac or pc. Not an issue if you’re using as a webcam or to feed in video to obs or streaming. It might be an issue for those trying to do mobile filmmaking. But then you’re probably not looking for webcam software.
I recommend the developer work on a wireless option which will allow the phone to be used further from the computer which opens up a wider range of film angles.
