From the team that elevated your photography with Camera+ 2, introducing the app that will bring your videos to new heights: REC
REC is designed with you in mind, whether you're an experienced videographer or your last encounter with video capture was a camcorder, you'll find REC produces pro quality videos with simple, intuitive controls.
Oodles of Options
REC gives you full control over every aspect of your video. The menu is packed with every option you could want in a simple easy to read format. From resolution and fps to audio sample rate and format, REC is built to record video the way you want it. Here's a quick rundown of all of your options:
- Camera: Wide, Ultra-Wide, Tele, Front (As available on your device.)
- Automatic Camera Stabilization
- Resolution: 4k, 1080p, 720p (As available on your device.)
- FPS: 240, 120, 60, 50, 48, 30, 25, 24 (As available on your device and camera.)
- Bit Rate: Normal, High, Max
- HDR: Option to record in HDR with Dolby Vision (As available on your device.)
- Format: HEVC, H264
- Lock Exposure and White Balance when recording begins
That's a lot of options! But REC gives you simplicity along with flexibility, you'll never be able to select a combination that doesn't work with your device.
- Microphone: Front, Back, Bottom, External (As available on your device.)
- Microphone Gain control
- Microphone Polar Pattern control: Choose omni, subcardiod, cardiod or stereo pickup depending on what best fits your usage. (As available by device and microphone.)
- Sample Rate: 24Khz, 44.1Khz, 48Khz
- Format: AAC, PCM
REC's floating buttons put pro level controls at your fingertips, and keeps them out of the way while you're focusing on what's important, shooting your video! A single tap brings up any of the control menus where you can adjust the white balance, shutter speed, ISO, EV, and focus manually. Quickly swap cameras and formats with a flick of your finger, and your selection is always available at a glance. Or, use our intuitive touch controls to specify precisely where in your frame focus on and expose to. Optionally overlay a grid, and zoom in or out to help you frame the perfect shot every time.
Everything you need to know while recording your video is presented in a compact, easy to read heads-up display. Quickly check the audio levels, see how much storage is left in your device, and a short summary of your selected format options, without having the view of your subject obscured.
If you record footage using several devices such as: your iPhone, a video camera, a DSLR, a microphone, and you use the same reference clock for all of your recordings, then it will be dead simple to synchronize everything while you are editing your creation. This is a great way to record multi-angle video, using your phone as an additional camera!
REC provides two Timecode methods. The first one is "Time of Day", which simply records your device's clock information alongside the video. In order for it to work, just make sure all your devices are set to the same time. For really accurate and extremely simple synchronization, REC also provides Bluetooth sync using Tentacle Sync devices. Using Tentacle Timecode, REC is able to synchronize your iPhone footage within an incredible 1-frame resolution window. You can find more about the Tentacle Sync solutions at https://tentaclesync.com.
REC saves all of your videos seamlessly to the built in manager that lets you quickly and easily preview your creations. Watch your shots at different speeds, and preview them without sound if you're trying to find the right shot to share in a sensitive environment. Sending a video to your photo library or favorite editor is just a tap away. Or if you'd prefer, send videos directly to the Photo Library and enjoy its seamless integration with any app that supports video.

Version 3.3.2 fixes an issue when connecting external audio devices after having previously selected an internal microphone with a stereo polar pattern.
In version 3.3 we added 10-bit SDR recording for iPhone 12 Pro devices.
In addition, we made some changes:
- Renamed Cine exposure to Auto, to avoid confusion.
- EV amount can now be reset by double tapping on the EV wheel.
- The EV amount, if different than zero, is shown on the exposure button when the exposure options are closed.
Ratings and Reviews
Can’t save to Photos. Fixed!!!
So I love Camera +2 which is why I purchased this. Wanted to test out the 4K on my iPhone X. Recorded 5 1 to 2 minute videos. Now I’m trying to save them to photos and I get “There was a problem saving your video. Check your storage” of which I have plenty “The operation couldn’t be completed (PHPotosErrorDo-Main Error-1.). Normally I’d go to the developer website to be a bit more discreet but can’t find any contact information there.
Deleted the app, reinstalled and now it’s working great.

Hi there! We'd be happy to help you out with this. The easiest way to submit a bug report is through the app (from settings, tap on "About" then "Send Feedback"). Or you can always submit a report via our website at https://latenitesoft.com/contact/
It’s not a bad app, but through two different phones, and two different pairs of Bluetooth headphones, I haven’t been able to use Bluetooth headphone mics as external audio on this app.
I used it for a film project once, and using my phone’s audio was honestly terrible. Why is this? There’s an option for external audio, but I’ve never been able to get it to work.
I used to have a pair of skull candy Bluetooth headphones. My current pair is the Jabra GN Elite 25e. Both have mics which work perfectly fine on phone calls, the memo app, and Siri, but not here. Is there anything I can do about this? It would help greatly, and definitely bump my rating up a star or two.
Developer Response ,
Hi there! Bluetooth mics are not yet supported. If you have a wired mic, that would work. I've passed on your request for bluetooth mic support to the engineers.
Love it so far but have questions
I love the manual focus on the Camera+2 and Rec apps but just learning to use. Is zoom limited to 6x with manual focus on camera? And is the only zoom choice for video the Tele choice or is there a sliding scale function?
Developer Response ,
Hi there! I'm so glad you're enjoying the apps so far! Zoom is limited to 6x in Camera+ 2 in all modes where it's available. For REC, 6x zoom is available on all lenses. If you have any further questions, please feel free to send us feedback through the in-app bug reporters, and we'll be happy to help you out!
