The mission of Crisis Cam is to empower citizen journalists and investigators to:
• Upload time and place identifiable video assets to social media.
• More rapidly correlate crisis scene footage, to build event timelines.
• Reduce errors and complexity in analysis.

The app is super simple. All you need to do is film crisis footage with Crisis Cam and upload it to your social media platform of choice. You can also use footage recorded via other camera apps and process it with Crisis Cam, and upload to your social media platform of choice.

Crisis Cam will utilize the embedded attributes of the iOS video you recorded to visually embed the exact time and frame stamp of the footage, as well as the precise geo location data.

That's all we do. However, if you have been on the analysis side of citizen filmed crisis footage then you will completely understand just how beneficial these attributes become for that activity. There will be no more guess work.

The watermarked footage will be added to a 'Crisis Cam' album in your iOS Photos app. This is the video you should upload to social media.

Good luck, and please provide us feedback on what features you want to see next. We have many ideas are are trying to prioritize what will be most helpful to this community of videographers and analysts.

Thank you for helping us return trust to journalism.

Valuable and Super Simple

This app is a great way for me to geo-tag and date stamp a video I am recording or have recorded in the past. I don’t have to remember where I was exactly or the exact time the video was taken all the information is watermarked for me on the screen. This is a very valuable app for video credibility. My only request would be that I had the option to record the video in landscape orientation. Great app!

Not so good on ipad. Inconsistent. Does not work well with landscape mode

This is an interesting app, but it is inconsistant. It would be very useful with more options. It assumes the video is shot in portrait orientation and can’t make up its mind with landscape orientation video. it will start the stamp on one edge as if it was portrait, then switch to the other edge of landscape. Lanscape video is processed and output in potrait mode. It puts a green checkmark for no reason. No option to turn off the green checkmark. Sometimes it puts the timestamp in the middle of the frame. It does not give a preview or option of placement of timestamp in the frame. It adds an additional gmt/utc offset in the timestamp without option. No option for text background. If the source video is light color like sky, the white text of the timestamp is invisible. Does not work with all video formats. I did a screen recording on ipad and wanted to timestamp it. This app looked like it was processing it, but the result was no visible timestamp.
