- Shutter and ISO Priority Modes: In addition to auto exposure, you can set specific Shutter Speed or ISO values to adhere to and let the app automatically adjust exposure for the unlocked value.
- Cross-swipe manual controls: The most intuitive way to manually adjust focus and exposure. Swipe across the image to dial in your perfect shot. Swipe up and down to adjust exposure. Swipe left and right to adjust focus.

- Vintage film simulations: The magic of Firstlight is in our realistic tributes to authentic film stocks.
- Film grain: Apply natural-looking, dynamically-generated film grain effects to give your photos that ‘film look’.

Subscription? No. Will wait for it to be worth it.

I think I’m time this could be a really great app like filmic pro for video.

At first look the interface is similar to filmic pro...

Right off the bat, accessing anything advanced requires a subscription. The greatest thing about the App Store was that you could pay a one time fee to unlock certain features for apps.

I completely understand to sustain any business that there needs to be a steady revenues stream long term. I do believe there are other ways to do that other than the subscription model. I can also appreciate the fact that your subscription model is pretty inexpensive.

As a user speaking to the manufacturer, I’m not subscribing. Where’s the value? Where is the roadmap outlining what I’m going to get over and above the “advanced” features? You’re basically looking for a way to sustain your business because you did a great thing by charging the one time fee with filmic.

If you want to sustain your revenue stream, integrate a adding LUTs, find a way for photographers to load in their own LUTs, get creative.

Subscription no thanks... there are other apps that do infinitely more that are a one time charge.

Not something I am going to pay for

Not sure why this app is not one time pay and that’s it.
The App Store is full of other great apps you can pay for one time and that’s it.
