Use the amazing camera in your iPhone as a pro-quality webcam, and stand out on your next video call, live stream, or online event with Camo.

Your iPhone, iPad or iPod Touch’s camera is leagues ahead of any webcam. Short of connecting a $1,500 DSLR camera to your computer, nothing will come close. With Camo there’s no need for any extra hardware or drivers.

Joanna Stern, The Wall St. Journal – “how I do all my live TV hits”
MacWorld US – “full-featured, easy-to-use, and delightful”
9to5Mac – “an easy way to seriously improve your video call quality”
WIRED – “there are a number of apps which let you use your iOS device’s camera as your webcam, but the best one is Camo”
MacWorld UK – “an easy way to beef up the video quality on your calls”
TechAdvisor – “slick, it’s flawless in performance and more secure than its counterparts too”

With over 10 million users helped over the last decade, Reincubate is one of the UK’s most-loved software companies.


Camo makes the most of the incredible cameras in your iPhone, iPad or iPod touch, and can do shallow depth of field “portrait mode” bokeh effects on newer iPhones.


Use any lens on your device: ultra-wide, wide-angle, telephoto, or selfie. Zoom, pan, rotate, recolor, and fine-tune focus and exposure.


We don’t believe in drivers or jargon, and you won’t need any extra hardware. Just connect your iOS device to your Mac or PC. Camo gives you the control of a DSLR camera setup, but without the hassle of extra dongles and connectors.


Camo’s unique Camo Studio app runs on your computer, giving you control over your video without the need to fiddle with your phone. Camo ensures you’ve always got a preview of your video, even when your video meeting software doesn’t.


Go the extra mile with a custom video overlay to show off your brand or personality, or choose one from Camo Studio’s overlay gallery. Also, you can easily record video directly in Camo Studio – no third-party apps required.


Camo works perfectly with Zoom, Google Meet, Microsoft Teams, Chrome, OBS Studio, Streamlabs, Skype, Twitch, Panopto, ScreenFlow, Final Cut Pro X, and dozens of other video recording and streaming products.


Camo doesn’t know what you’re using it for, and doesn’t capture or transmit your video feed. It simply routes it from your iPhone to your computer. Your data is your business, not ours.


- Super low latency, high speed pro-quality video in many resolutions, including 1080p HD, 720p, and 360p
- Powerful presets to save and quickly switch to your favourite adjustments and settings
- Native support for iPadOS as well as your iPhone, and beautiful Dark Mode support throughout
- Faster than a webcam: Camo offloads all processing to your iOS device, keeping your computer cool and fast
- Work with landscape or portrait mode with full rotation controls and choice over 16:9 or 4:3 aspect ratios
- Switch between any of your device’s front and back cameras in real-time
- Supports switching between multiple iOS devices in real-time
- No ads in the app, not ever

Great for online teaching

My monitor doesn't have a web came or a microphone and Camo let's me use my camera and its mic and it looks great and sounds great. Aside from using my iPhone 11 and mic the zoom feature is incredible. I teach guitar and other instruments through zoom and the ability so quickly zoom in super close on my fingers is a gigantic help! I don't use any other Camo features. It's nice to have color correction and all those other doo dads but I never use them. I have nice lighting in my studio so I never have to worry about that.

I give it 5 starts because it really is fantastic for me I just can't stand the subscription model of software. Sure, I could buy the lifetime use but, too me it's too much money for what the software does. I have other really sophisticated software I use that I paid less money for and I've been using those for years (with updates). Even $5 a month is steep to me but I make money using it so it makes sense.

Truly Fantastic!

I searched high and low for "the best" webcam when starting a new remote job this year. I have also tried many different brands over the years and simply never found one that excited me with the quality and features. Once started at my new job, they internally recommended Camo, which I had never heard of. I tried out the free version first and very quickly (and excitedly) paid for premium. I already had the best possible camera in my pocket, and now I could easily use it for all my web calls! The finetuning capabilities make this my absolute favorite option now, and I don't have to carry any additional cameras or cords when I travel, than the phone and cord I already have on every trip to begin with. Thanks for making such a great app, Camo Team!!!

Superior web cam

I compared this to epocam which is used with the elgato family of products and vcam. Reincubate is superior. It has a very natural looking depth of field background blur whereas the other two pixelated the area around the portrait.

It has only one downside, which was still not enough to knock it down a star, which is that it requires a wired connection from your phone to your Mac or pc. Not an issue if you’re using as a webcam or to feed in video to obs or streaming. It might be an issue for those trying to do mobile filmmaking. But then you’re probably not looking for webcam software.

I recommend the developer work on a wireless option which will allow the phone to be used further from the computer which opens up a wider range of film angles.
