Love it but one misleading issue

This is my favourite camera control app as a professional used to scopes, etc and also the picture quality and buttery smoothness is uber-impressive. I bought a Zhiyun Smooth 4 gimbal as it was listed in app but on delivery of gimbal it appears not, though its listed and mapped on website. I emailed Zhiyun and they stated that it’s incompatible. I have bought FilmicPro and that works beautifully with The gimbal and has a lot of control. Why is it listed in the app and website, and as an extra paid component? Also, the app needs updating. Such a shame if the app is left to rot as I much prederbit to FilmicPro but will have now to use the latter because it (honestly) works with the gimbal.

Amazing app!

As a professional TV director and cameraman, I 've been somewhat impressed at the way that some smartphones such as the iPhone 6s Plus can handle images, both still and video.
What was lacking though was the right software to take advantage of the possibilities.
I needed to have full control as well as monitoring of the various functions.
Enter MAVIS!
What an incredible little(!) app.
I couldn't believe that it actually offers focus peaking as well as a waveform monitor, not to mention a decent manual audio level control.
In short, it has everything that I'd expect if I was to pick up a professional video camera.
I also bought the IoGrapher frame to hold the 6sPlus, which really has turned it into a very high-powered video acquisition unit
Well done to the developers - I salute you!

This is an update at July 2017.
While I still stick with my previous thoughts, there is one fault that I reported to the developers, but nothing seems to have been done to rectify it: the manual focus control has an image of infinity and also a flower for close up work. It appears that the icons are the wrong way around. One should be able to slide ghe control to infinity to focus on distant objects, whereas it's the other way around...

Best Videography App.... Period!

So I’d been using Filmic Pro for a good while but I was getting frustrated with it’s user interface and felt overall it was a bit clunky and somewhat unstable.

I came across Mavis a while back but at that point it was fairly expensive for me to purchase and there was no free version to try out. When a free version did come along, I downloaded it, played with it and within days I decided to purchase the ‘Big Bundle’ package and I can honestly say it was money well spent in my opinion. It’s feature rich and the layout of the user interface is so intuitive and easy to navigate compared to Filmic Pro.

I’d love to see integration with hardware such as the Zhiyun Smooth 4 so I can use the rack focus/zoom wheel and motion time lapses within Mavis but I appreciate that could be a tall order!

Yes, the full app is a little costly, but it’s a serious bit of kit and if you’re into mobile cinematography then Mavis is the app you’ll need without doubt.

In a nutshell, Mavis is an awesome app and the customer support is great. I’ve had no regrets buying this app and I’ll be using it when I go to Dubai in a few weeks!
