The Best Video App on iOS

This app ticks all the major boxes for me. Frame Rate, Shutter/ISO and Colour Control, with False Colour to control my exposure. The UI is straightforward and there’s just so many small things that it helps out with, that you can have scoped overlays automatically turn just when adjusting certain settings (eg. False colour on exposure controls) or how it records the zoom angle in your video metadata so when you’re matching to 3D footage it’s much easier.

I’ve used many of its competitors, including Filmic which was my go-to, even with some woeful UI issues, until it screwed up my entire phone. I lost so much time and shots because of Filmic. Yet CinemaP3 just works, you can rely on it.

Also the developer is constantly making this better daily, I’m eager to see where this app goes.

I have tried many other apps including FilmicPro. I find this one better for options and simplicity. I would like to make it my go to app, but in order to do that it really needs to have presets that the user can store in order to easily switch between user desired settings. It is too time consuming to manually switch to various desired settings while actually shooting. PLEASE consider this for one of your next updates as you do have a great app for video. More people need to try it. Presets will raise my rating to 5 stars.

Added presets! 5 star! Hope more people check this app out.

Developer Response ,

Thanks for your feedback. Presets have been added in the latest update. Enjoy.

The only cinema/photo app you’ll ever need.

I’m not going to create yet another laundry list of amazing features - there are plenty of other reviews here that can deliver that information. Instead I want to praise this app and is developer for providing tremendous value at a budget price. If you want a deep dive into the app, visit Tom’s website. It’s all there - and more. Frankly, I don’t remember the last time I purchased an app that had such robust support.

So to wrap this up - if you’re looking for a world class camera app that doesn’t demand a subscription - just buy this app. You can’t go wrong!
