FiLMiC Pro v6 is the most advanced cinema video camera for mobile. Ever. FiLMiC Pro features cutting-edge capabilities and is the most responsive manual filming app available on mobile.
A multi-time iOS Video Camera App of the Year, FiLMiC Pro has been used in more high profile video projects by award winning directors than any other app:
Unsane & High Flying Bird - Steven Soderbergh
Tangerine - Sean Baker
Lose You to Love Me - Selena Gomez
Stupid Love - Lady Gaga
Detour - Michel Gondry
Snow Steam Iron - Zack Snyder
No Love Like Yours - Olivia Wilde
The Best Years of a Life (Cannes 2019) - Claude Lelouch
FiLMiC Pro provides filmmakers, newscasters, teachers, vloggers, and artists with the capability to shoot in a true LOG gamma curve (included in the CineKit optional in-app purchase). LOG V2/V3/V3+ allows for greater tonal range and flexibility in post production by expanding dynamic range and setting the iPhone’s capabilities on par with traditional camera systems costing thousands more. †
FiLMiC Pro also offers a range of cinematic film looks (optional in-app purchase) that can be applied in-camera at time of capture to deliver a truly cinematic aesthetic without the need for timely grading in post. †
Note: Multicam support is not included in FiLMiC Pro but is available in our companion app: DoubleTake.

Previously added in v6.19.2 of FiLMiC Pro:
— Support for ProRes 4K 60fps
While the iPhone 13 pro series do not actually support true ProRes 60fps at 4K, it can be approximated by using a lower quality chroma subsample scheme (4:2:0 vs 4:2:2). We want to be upfront about how this is actually achieved, so the first time you select a frame rate in ProRes above 30fps, you’ll get an info alert with some information. But despite the inferior chrome subsample scheme required above 30fps in ProRes, we now deliver some eye-watering file sizes perfect for slow motion retiming in post.
— New Tone Mapping options:
Unfortunately you can’t turn it off, but you can switch between two types of tone mapping: Global Tone Mapping (GTM) and Local Tone Mapping (LTM). Tone Mapping is available under the Settings > Resolution panel. You’ll find it if you scroll down past your bitrate quality. GTM opportunistically lifts shadows and crompesses highlights to approximate higher dynamic range video. LTM works much like GTM, but instead of acting on the entire image, acts on local tiles or ‘pixel neighborhoods’ for more aggressive results.
— Support for Video HDR:
You can now enable Video HDR in FiLMiC Pro for enhanced dynamic range under some shooting conditions. We employ Apple’s multi-exposure image stacking technique to expand shadow detail and make highlights less susceptible to clipping. You’ll find Video HDR if you scroll down past your bitrate quality under Settings > Resolution. It is available in 8-bit and ProRes capture formats.
— Creator Survey:
Want to help shape the future of FiLMiC Pro and create an even better app? Then take our creator survey which is included in part of this release! A few minutes of your time will help to inform the future of the most powerful mobile cinema camera on a smartphone.
— Improvements to White Balance:
Now the white balance matrix panel and the white balance temperature values displayed in the lower left of the interface on wide aspect devices are correctly in sync. Custom white balance is correctly applied between launches now, and even saved and loaded from your custom presets.
— Improvements to Clip Selection Logic in Library
Now, after deleting selected clips, we automatically take you out of clip select mode.
— If you start a recording with your audio gain set to zero, we now alert you via a system alert that your clip will not contain audio. You can ignore and never be prompted again, or continue to be alerted if clips are without sound.
Ratings and Reviews
Whether you’re shooting for film, broadcast, or your family reunion, Filmic Pro will take your footage to the next level. It’s the same app that experts have used to shoot commercial projects around the world, providing complete control over your camera’s focus, exposure, frame rates, and more. It’s powerful on its own but built to support external microphones, lens adapters, and other production accessories. It really does put true professional-quality videography at your fingertips.
Removed the promotional link in the main menu (y)
The previous version has a promotional link front and center in the top-level main menu, which I think was inappropriate, in particular when there is also an Information / Support page which would have been perfect for that. That’s great. However the app still does not work with the Osmo Mobile 3 gimbal, which has been widely available everywhere for several weeks now. The app connects, but the gimbal functions don’t work, for example the Rec button on the gimbal changes the volume, zoom does nothing, etc, so the DJI protocol changes and Filmic currently lags a little behind. In addition to the obvious, it would be nice to add a tracking mode that controls the gimbal motion from the app, where we could drag an arbitrary rectangle anywhere in the frame, and the shot would keep whatever is there at that position in the frame (specifically, not necessarily centered!) - that would be the next level of awesomeness! Thanks for the update, yet already looking forward to the next one.

Hi rallyfan1234567890. Thanks for your feedback. You can contact Apple directly for a refund as third party app developers are unable to offer them. The button that includes the option to get more information about our film festival is located under the settings menu and is not to be a top-level function. If you would like to discuss your concerns further we can be contacted at firstname.lastname@example.org and would be happy to assist.
Fantastic! But I'd love to see a few more crop guides!
I really do love this app, and I don't want to come across as negative - this is THE best filmmaking app in existence, nothing is better when it comes to smartphone videography! But I have one feature that I would love to see in this app which would make it perfect, and that would be the option to film in more aspect ratios than what's currently available. I'd love to see 1.85:1 and 1.50:1 for example, but I have one very specific request, and that would be the ability to frame for a 1.66:1 aspect ratio - which was actually possible in previous versions of this app if what I've seen is correct - because this is my absolute favorite aspect ratio for filming my projects. I don't know how difficult this would be to add these feature into the app, but it would be my dream come true to see more crop guides introduced and a return of 15:9 (1.66:1). I hate to sound negative, especially when this app is already practically perfect, and I hate to go on about my personal issues instead of talking about improvements which could help everybody across the board (though hopefully other people would take advantage of these new crop guides, should they be added), but this would absolutely make my day. Thank you for all the work you put into this wonderful app!
