Created by a Primetime Emmy® award-winning software engineer, the Buttery Smooth Video Camera delivers broadcast-quality results without massive complexity.

Previously, pro camera apps required the knowledge of a film degree, and the hands of a contortionist. Buttery changes all that with Operator-Assist™ technology. Cinematic zoom provides natural pulls with a single tap. Real-time level and horizon overlays mean you’ll never have tilted videos again.

We obsessed for hundreds of hours to make Buttery powerful, yet simple.

- Record easily outdoors with large controls, and readable text.
- Turn location tagging on or off anytime. Your choice.
- Know how much record time is available as you select frame rate, resolution and camera.
- Consume less power than other camera apps, so you can record more and worry less.

Get full manual control of exposure, color and focus with freeze lock to prevent mistakes during recording. Buttery’s comparison meter even shows you the difference between your current manual exposure settings and what the automatic settings would have been.

Got a DJI OSMO Mobile 1 or 2 gimbal? So do we. It’s fully integrated into Buttery, with record start/stop, both manual and preset zooms, orientation reset, pan / tilt control, free / follow modes, battery level, and status viewfinder overlays.

Grab an inexpensive bluetooth remote shutter, and avoid bumps caused by tapping the screen. Start/stop recording, zoom in/out, or take a photo without touching your device.

Buttery's viewfinder now provides a grid of thirds, square, and center-circle overlay choices to help with scene composition. There’s even a special low-light video recording mode for higher-quality video when reality is a bit dark.

Everything you need is close, without clunky app-switching. Play, scrub and inspect your videos, and mark favorites. The easy-to-view battery level, clock, screen brightness and rotation lock are all a single tap away.

There’s no catches, no in-app purchases. Just Buttery goodness.

Smooth, versatile & easy

Far superior to the Apple cam app. More controllable without having to dig through menus. It lets me make smoother (more buttery?) videos by allowing shutter speed choice to eliminate “juddering” look to motion when shutter speed goes too high. The smooth zoom ramping is cool. And the vibration reduction seems better. Also nice to have separate video and still buttons. And there’s more. Check it out. Bet it won’t be free for long.

Sinking oceans

Living near the ocean, I take lots of videos there. Since I’m not always paying attention it’s easy to record tilted video that looks like ocean is draining off to the side. I leave the horizon feature on, and the app shows me when it’s not straight. Good stuff.

Best camera UI

I love this app - it’s so much easier to use than the normal camera app. Especially outdoors when I’m holding the phone with one hand and trying to record video. Good stuff.
