GREAT...But needs more functionality updates

LOVE this app. From the perspective of filming it is a beautifully economic option for getting high bitrate video and the 4:3 12MP mode is a godsend. What I will say is the way settings are locked needs an overhaul. The settings don’t seem to truly lock, and I find myself fiddling with the scroll wheels to get my shutter speed specific. If the numbers could be plugged in, saved and then loaded as presets it would be a perfect app from a filming POV. I would love to see the other two lenses included in the app but I understand if there are tech limitations to that. I hope they keep pushing the bitrates higher and higher (compression is the biggest limit of phone videography).

As for the back end: love the way the files are named. BUT, my biggest gripe with the app is there is no good way to transfer footage to your computer now that iTunes is deprecated. Eventually it will not work. I would love to see the devs record video onto a folder that can be accessed through the Files app. But that side of the app needs to be updated. Regardless, big fan. Please keep updating it

As an amateur, this makes me look like a pro!

I love, love, love this app. I just started learning how to edit videos so I could start making short movies for my family and our trips, holidays and events together. I am not fluent in any kind of way with different manual settings and manipulation of exposure, white balance, etc, but this app is so easy to use and practice with to finally get to the settings I want and the quality of the videos I can now edit and put together are stunning. It’s truly hard to believe the videos recorded with this one iPhone X. I use this app with a gimbal and voila, it’s like recording magic.

Does NOT save to your camera roll. Good luck finding what you’ve shot

So yea. This app can shoot nice videos. It has a lot of features useful to those who understand cameras - specifically those who understand principles of light.

But WHY in gods name would they not automatically save the videos to your camera roll?!? WHY?!? Why would you make something that’s supposed to make filming better and easier (since the native iPhone video app is SO bad and lacks even the most basic of manual settings) only to NOT make the videos immediately accessible to the person?

I’ve rated it a three. The app does great stuff. But enjoy reading through how you have to plug in your phone, or do some other more complex export JUST to see the video you JUST recorded. This was clearly written by programmers with absolutely no mind to UI usability and flexibility. There is NO compete team that would accept having to go through MORE steps just to access what the sole purpose of the app is for in the first place.

I’m angry for having spent the money on this app and I’ve NO idea why this little fact isn’t highlighted first and foremost. And if the developers are so sure that their more convoluted file saving method is so great, then wonderful! List it as the FIRST feature. But I think we all know it’s NOT a good thing and all they’ve done is replace one set of problems with another.
