Portrait mode isn’t just for photos. With BOCA, you can shoot videos with a beautiful depth-of-field blur effect.
Depth-of-field is the videographer’s term for a blurred background that leaves the subject looking crisp and sharp.
Tweak the blur effect just the way you want by dragging the slider — add more or less blur to get just the right look. Your videos will end up looking amazing!
BOCA simulates the effect of a photographer’s lens by using depth information from the iPhone’s TrueDepth or dual cameras. Check the compatibility list below to ensure BOCA works with your device.
Tag your videos #BocaCam! The best ones will be shared on our Instagram profile!
We love hearing from you. If you have any feedback please email us at email@example.com.
- Drag the slider to change the amount of blur — before or after recording a video.
- Tap the viewfinder to set focus and exposure.
- Use the volume button as a “shutter”. Just press the volume button to start or stop recording.
- Play and edit your recorded videos on the review screen
- Save edited videos to your camera roll, or share them with other apps
- Search through previously recorded videos from the explorer screen, or select a video for playback and editing
BOCA requires a compatible device:
Recording from both cameras is supported on iPhone X, iPhone XS and iPhone XS Max.
The iPhone XR only supports the camera on the front of the phone (the selfie camera).
The iPhone 7 Plus and iPhone 8 Plus only support the camera on the back of the phone.
The iPhone 7, iPhone 7 Plus and iPhone 8 do not have compatible cameras.
This update fixes an issue where the in-app purchase to remove the watermark was not available.

Ratings and Reviews
App does what it says it does
Found it on Product Hunt and thought cool let’s try it out. App works great but just like portrait mode on the camera sometimes it’ll blur my glasses on my head but I just adjust and it’ll pick them up. This app will be perfect for standing out on IG stories and gives your videos a look similar to DSLR cameras in great lighting. I’d recommend trying it out while it’s free
Developer Response ,
Thanks for the review!! As a fellow glasses-wearer that is a sore spot for me as well. The quality of the foreground/background segmentation is definitely something I am working on. It will hopefully be improved in a future update. Stay tuned!
