Use the amazing camera in your iPhone as a pro-quality webcam, and stand out on your next video call, live stream, or online event with Camo.

Your iPhone, iPad or iPod Touch’s camera is leagues ahead of any webcam. Short of connecting a $1,500 DSLR camera to your computer, nothing will come close. With Camo there’s no need for any extra hardware or drivers.

With over 10 million users helped over the last decade, Reincubate is one of the UK’s most-loved software companies. Find out why.


Camo makes the most of the amazing camera in your iPhone, iPad or iPod Touch, and can do shallow depth of field "portrait mode" bokeh effects on newer iPhones. With Camo, even older iPhones will outclass your webcam.


Use any lens on your device: ultra-wide, wide-angle, telephoto or selfie. Zoom, pan, rotate, recolour and adjust light settings. Fine-tune focus and exposure, and use your iPhone’s flash as a torch for better lighting.


We don’t believe in drivers or jargon, and you don’t need any extra hardware. Just connect your iOS device to your Mac. Camo gives you similar control to a DSLR camera setup, but without the hassle.


Camo’s unique Camo Studio app runs on your computer, giving you full control over your video without the need to fiddle with your phone. Camo ensures you’ve always got a preview of your video, even when your video meeting software doesn’t.


Camo works perfectly with Zoom, Google Meet, Microsoft Teams, Chrome, OBS Studio, Streamlabs, Skype, Twitch, Panopto, ScreenFlow, Final Cut Pro X, and dozens of other video recording and streaming products.


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.


- Super low latency, high speed pro-quality video in many resolutions, including 1080p HD, 720p, and 360p
- Powerful presets to save and recall your best adjustments
- Native support for iPadOS as well as your iPhone, and beautiful Dark Mode support throughout
- Faster than a webcam: Camo offloads all processing to your iOS device, keeping your computer cool and fast
- Work with landscape or portrait mode with full rotation controls and choice over 16:9 or 4:3 aspect ratios
- Switch between any of your device’s front and back cameras in real-time
- Supports switching between multiple iOS devices in real-time
- No ads in the app, not ever

Beste "iPhone als Webcam"-App

Camo ist die beste App, um ein iPhone als Webcam zu nutzen. Einfach die App auf dem iPhone und dem Mac (es gibt auch eine Windows-Version) installieren und los gehts.

Keine Abzocke und keine zweifelhaften Sachen. Die Pro-Version (bzw. Abo für 12 Monate) ist den Aufpreis wert, weil man so noch mehr aus selbst einstellen kann und vor allem den Proträt-Modus ("Hintergrund verwischen/weichzeichnen") nutzen kann. Das kann man in Zoom/Teams auch so nutzen, der Unterschied ist aber meinem Verständnis nach, dass es bei Camo über das iPhone läuft und die Mac/PC-CPU schont, die ja schon genung zu tun hat bei Videokonferenzen. Und da es "Webcam-seitig" gemacht wird, hat man so diese Funktion in Apps, die das selbst nicht anbieten (ja, GoToMeeting, ich rede von Dir).

Das Reincubate-Team hat auch einen schnellen, kompetenzen und netten Support, wenn man Unterstützung braucht.

Setze diese Software in Kombination mit iPhone 12 und iMac seit einem Jahr als Webcam-Lösung ein. Bin extrem zufrieden - die Bildqualität lässt so ziemlich jede andere Webcam im Regen stehen. Auch die Einstellungsmöglichkeiten auf der Mac-Seite (dort ist die Software “Camo Studio” erforderlich) (über)erfüllen alle meine Erwartungen.
Und: Der Support ist extrem schnell, freundlich und hilfreich.
Was will man mehr?

Mega gut!

Super App, damit kann ich mein iPhone 6 endlich als Webcam nutzen. Installation war kein Problem und der Client auf dem MacBook kann sich auch sehen lassen.
