Its That End User Again ,

Professional functionality and full potential features.

I downloaded this 3 years ago on an iPhone 11 and was blown away. The features of this app exceed what I have ever experienced, and the functionality is well suited for professional A/V use. I was struck by the interface, which included a both a vectorscope and a waveform monitor. It was unexpected and slightly intimidating to have so many settings at hand all at once. Definitely has a learning curve, and the going over the manual is a must (but easily accessible thankfully). You can’t just bust this app out and start recording immediately; it’s not really suited for casual situations or the average user. The most you can do is go full auto, but you are really missing out on the outstanding capabilities your iPhone has. I appreciate the developers and team behind this because of this apps complexity.

Incredible broadcast quality camera!

I cannot stop using this app. It is super inspiring especially when you have the newest iPhones. Mavis Pro has so much professional control over your shooting.

You can choose which microphone source to activate on the phone for directional or omnidirectional audio. For example I can use just the iPhone’s rear microphone with subcardioid pattern for interviews, or even better try an external USB microphone and control its input levels right from the app.

My favorite feature is the butter smooth zoom feature. You can zoom in and out by just swiping up or down very gently while filming. It will give you professional results with precise zoom shots! I love it so much.

You can have precise control over the video too. In the viewfinder you’ll find focus peaking, false color, expanded focus, zebras, guides, aspect overlays, and lens support for Moment lenses or even the Beastgrip DOF2. The option of setting your white balance is a nice added option also.

The video format options are endless. I love having so much control over file size, fps, and overall quality. Up to 100Mbit 4K 60fps.

Support for custom timecode options including UltraSync Blue. Control for Zhiyun gimbal Smooth 4 is also included.

This app is by far one of my best investments!
Totally recommended if you are a video pro and love the ability to shoot broadcast and cinema quality video without any additional gear.

Would like to be optimistic

Due to recent business changes around my go-to filmmaking app, I’m on the hunt for an alternative. I’ve driven Mavis around the block in the past but for me, there was no compelling reason to switch, especially since it appeared to be abandoned. Now there may be.

So, four stars because the app hasn’t kept up with the hardware capability or with gimbal integration. But four stars because Mavis is an outstanding filmmaking app, right down to the details even in the current free version. Superior flexibility (e.g., no forced limits on shutter angle based on frame rate) to what I’m currently using. There are a couple of things I wish the app had, but the core functionality is solid.

So, I’m watching to see if the app still has ongoing developer interest. If it does, then it absolutely has my interest as well.

Developer Response ,

Hi there. It’s true we ran out steam with the app. Although we loved it we had to concentrate on other things. However, watch this space 🤭
