“Intuitive, lets you take control over shooting your footage” - Yahoo

“Robust and reliable… With the introduction of presets and persistence between sessions this has taken steps into the world of professional used tools. It's my go-to video camera for reportage and doco, and recently shot a short film with it.” - Kinomatic User Mike R.


Choose from all available camera on the phone - e.g. ultra wide, wide, telephoto and triple lens on the iPhone Pro models. Select any of the available microphones. Want to do live voice over while recording? Select the front facing mic while you record with the back facing camera. Want to monitor audio with a headset but don’t want to use the headset’s mic? Just select the phone’s back mic instead.

Record and edit at 4K resolution.

Need to capture a still while using Kinomatic? Just tap the still image button. Captures at maximum resolution when you’re not recording video and at video resolution while recording video (yes, you can capture still images while recording video!)

After hearing from filmmakers using Kinomatic in studio shoots we worked with them to create Super Persist. Set up your shot and enable Super Persist to keep your White Balance, Focus and Exposure settings uniform between sessions. Also great for consistency on multi-camera shoots.

Kinomatic comes loaded with presets for filmmakers and broadcasters (For broadcast in EU 25FPS, and in US 30FPS). You can also add your own presets or customise any existing presets. Save time on set-up and consistency by using Smart Presets.

Kinomatic saves all video shot within the app straight to the camera roll so there is no need for transfers or saving out of the app. Kinomatic also generates a rough cut of all clips from a session for you to check your coverage immediately. Freely add, edit and trim clips in our non-destructive light editor.

Totally worth it

I stumbled onto this app a few years back and I wish I could set it as my default camera in someways. It had all the features I needed specially microphone input selection and monitoring and a nice simple interface the editing system is not bad although I haven’t used it too much. I could’ve swore there was a way to manually set white balance. Glad to see that this is getting updated I hope it continues. You can take photos while recording video. There can occasionally be bugs but usually you close out and it resets and fixes it and I haven’t lost any files yet although I did have a audio video synchronization issue once and I think that was from unplugging the microphone while recording.
I have it on every device from a 4s to 13 mini.

Developer Response ,

Thanks for the thoughtful and thorough review! Great to hear you are enjoying Kinomatic. Your feedback and suggestions are much appreciated: an option to lock to landscape video in the app is a great idea.

Unique with good features

I really like all the fine tune and manual controls, including the zoom speed adjustment. When I checked some test footage using Exiftool I saw that metadata are encoded correctly including gps coordinates. This isn’t an important consideration to most people but they are to me. Although I don’t have a Bluetooth mic, I like that it can support one. The editing feature is basic, yet it enables you to quickly throw together a video that’s comprised of several clips stitched together. Although you can’t directly copy or move a clip from one project to another, you can import a clip that’s part of another project from the Camera Roll, or even other videos that weren’t filmed using the app. That said I personally don’t like that the app saves recordings directly to the camera roll, although it’s one of the app’s main features. This would not be my main app for recording video, but it has certain advantages over other apps which are enough for me to use in specific situations.
