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”

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

Content creators need this app.

In addition to the many apps available for turning your smartphone into a webcam and using it with OBS, Zoom, or any other software, I was interested in finding an app that has no delay and creates a sort of depth of field effect to my videos. That's why I bought a 13 Pro Max iPhone recently. I tried my old iPhone XR with this app and got surprised when I saw the "Basic Portrait and Portrait Mods; I wish I had known about this before I purchased my new phone. I am not using other image adjustments in the app, as I am using the app in conjunction with OBS Studio and doing all my color grading and correction within OBS. This app is a must-have tool for those looking for that kind of usage, and it does not break the bank. I recommend it.

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!
