Pretty amazing!

I've looked high and low for a video app that actually gave me the controls I was looking for. I think the interface is very clean and simple. I have no complaints, and only praise to give here.

One tip for users: I may have spotted a bug, but let me explain how to actually get everything to actually lock. It is a little tricky. If you set the focus, exposure and ISO, it will still compensate a little with the EV. Even though it will say "0", it in reality, it will be changing a little bit. When the value here is manually changed, then it will lock and it will remain so until something is changed like the frame rate, or resolution. It would be nice if there was a "lock all settings" button somewhere, maybe at the top bar or above the pictures review button.

Great, great App!

This app has its moments. There are only like 3 apps including this one that can really give you some good control over your camera. This particular apps user interface isn't the most intuitive. The slider bars can be quit annoying as it can be impossible to get your shutter speed to 1/60. You slide to 1/60 and once you take your finger off, it's moves ever so slightly to 1/62 or 1/57. I also feel that white balance isn't quit correct on the kelvin temp scale. I know for a fact the lights in my home are 4700. Not 3000 but that's okay. It's not hard to get it balance. Just if you ever have to reshot something after changing the settings it could be difficult to get it just right like before. It's not like a DSLR but it does well at giving you more control. I like the slider bar for focus but I would rather not have the slider for everything else.

Update needed for video glitches

I honestly love this app minus a few video glitches. Today while recording an event the app crashed around 40 minutes in. It did not store the video to the point of the crash it just crashed and I lost all that video. I then restarted the phone (iPhone 8 plus) and tried to continue to record the event but couldn’t get the app past 4 minutes of video without it crashing. Please get this fixed.

Furthermore, please adjust the controls to where you can gradually change options without it making drastic jumps depending on where you place your finger. Hope that makes sense but an example would be the zoom. If it’s on 3x and you want to gradually zoom back out it’s impossible.
