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.

Camo makes the most of the amazing camera in your iPhone, iPad or iPod Touch, and can do shallow depth of field "portrait mode" bokeh effects on newer iPhones. With Camo, even older iPhones will outclass your webcam.


Use any lens on your device: ultra-wide, wide-angle, telephoto or selfie. Zoom, pan, rotate, recolour and adjust light settings. Fine-tune focus and exposure, and use your iPhone’s flash as a torch for better lighting.


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


Camo’s unique Camo Studio app runs on your computer, giving you full 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.


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

- Native support for iPadOS as well as your iPhone, and beautiful Dark Mode support throughout

The best quality webcam is your iPhone

I use Camo for my job as a professor. My teaching switched to being online during the pandemic, so I researched high quality web cams. Camo turns your iPhone into the highest quality webcam you can imagine. It uses the iPhones superb rear facing camera to produce high quality images. You buy a tripod, or a gooseneck clip to attach the iPhone to your desk, plus the phone into your computer via your regular charging cable, and viola you look 10 times better than with the tiny webcam built into your computer. Add an external USB mic or a set of AirPods, and you're ready for high quality video conferencing where you're heard and seen with much higher clarity. Camo is definitely worth the price if you video conference every day.

Truly impressed with how this works with your older (iPhone X) or new mobile phones. I was actually about to sell my iPnone X when I cam accross this app. The biggest selling point was your mobile phone has pretty much all the color and lighting correcting features anyway, so you don't really have to mess around with anything, like you have to using a Logitech 920 or BRIO. Just plug in your iPhone and turn on the Mac and iPhone app and it just works. Cool thing is you have the option to custom correct all your Lighting Adjustments (Exposure, White Balance, Flash and Levels) and Image Adjustments (Brightness, Hue, Saturation, Contrast, Gamma and Sharpness). Not that it needs it, but it does it all. Again, AMAZING APP! Hope this will last for years to come! Thank you!

The only way I've *really* been able to use my iPhone as a webcam

There are a ton of apps that allow you to use your phone as a webcam: Epoc, Iriun, etc. and I've tried several. My issues with those were that the video was choppy, they were slow to connect, the lighting was bad, they didn't connect with Zoom, the desktop client was ugly or hard to wrangle and other frustrating things that ultimately left me to go back to my Macbook's built in camera. Then, I found this app. It actually works well, finally! The video is crisp, it connect via USB so the connection is instant and stable, the settings are straightforward and well-designed, it works flawlessly with Zoom and everything else I care about. Exactly what I was looking for
