Missing Some Things

I really want to love this professional quality video recording app. I’m looking for that perfect, all in one solution recorder. But I’m missing some features on this one. I live some of the features you get on Guerrilla Filmmaker, like every aspect ratio, or just about every resolution. That’s what I want to see on here. This app has a lot going for it though. It’s well worth the 4 stars. But for 5 stars, I need all the features we have here, plus I want all aspect ratios and resolutions as well.

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.

The Best Video App

I’ve been using Mavis for the last 5 months for recording product reviews and macro style videos. The manual focus/focus peaking work perfect for my needs, and I really enjoy using them. I also love the new features in the latest update! Zoom works great, and the function button is perfect!

The only comment I would make today is that I recently purchased an iPad Pro (10.5”), and would absolutely love it if the app supported the native screen resolution. I assume this would allow more on-screen Function buttons and capabilities as well. That giant viewfinder can be really nice for certain shots. I’d be willing to buy an iPad specific version.

This app makes my iPhone 7+ my primary video camera. Keep up the good work! You guys are awesome!
