Calvin FookYuu's Review of Filmic ProReviewed on 9/8/18 12:32 AM
I use this app for YouTube videos off my iPhone X (up to date iOS wise and no issues) I use a Rode Videomicro mic that works on EVERY other app even stock camera app. This app it works, then randomly MID video it turns the mic off. Ruined a few videos already. Thanks. Now the recordings. So many of my clips and recordings at the end have been cut off, even when I let the recording go for a extra 10 seconds “just in case” OR the last 10-20 seconds of my actual recording it’s a frozen frame. I’ve NEVER had such bad videos until I got this app. Not worth the money till fixed. They’ll just say it’s only me like every other app dev but trust me. It’s not just me. Look in forums and groups. Not worth it. Getting a refund.

Easily the best if not the greatest app in your arsenal of filmography. It’s like having two-face from Batman; it has a simplicity to it and when you want to go pro, bang it show its ugly side, there are more then advance features all within the same app. My only con I can express for this app is not having full support for my Shiyun smooth q. Given that most guys are gearing up with either the dji osmo or the shiyun smooth q you would think they would carry both brands to maximize profit but I sadly can’t say that. Other then that this app has replace my stock camera app. I would loudly suggest for anybody thinking of making this purchase to also consider acquiring LumaFusion. Great app guys keep it up!!!!!!
DanInSeattle's Review of Filmic ProReviewed on 9/30/18 8:52 PM
Filmic Pro V6 is an excellent app for video capture. However it is extremely poor! If you save your clips to their video player, there is no way to directly export the clips to to your PC. It used to be that you could use iTunes. However, with iTunes V12.7, that functionality has been removed. It Appears that Apple wants you to upload your clip to the cloud. With 10’s a GB of clips, that is total unreasonable, especially when you need them on your computer for quality editing. I have 150 clips from a recent four day trip. Getting them to my camera roll and then to my PC has been an nightmare. What’s worse is that there is no User Forum that I can find for users to share solutions for these kinds of problems. Pretty much all I can find is promo stuff hyping Filmic Pro. It is extremely frustrating trying to find solutions and all you see is spam! I love Filmic Pro and it’s integration with my Zhiyun Smooth 4 gimbal, but I can’t stand the major hassle of managing the clips. I’m looking for a better iOS video capture tool.

Fix_it!'s Review of Filmic ProReviewed on 9/24/18 11:02 PM
I’ll make this short and simple. If you want to shoot in anything higher than 30fps then most of the features of this app will not work. No focus peaking, false color, zebra stripes, log or any other picture profiles. The worst part is you don’t know this until you’ve spent the money. I hope someone reads this and I save them the headache.

Considering the price of the app, it should have been updated even before the release of the new iPhone series. It’s not some free app but a quite pricey one, so we expect it to be up to date and don’t want to wait for an update to be eventually released.

Glad to see external mics are fully supported on IOS 12. Dev seems very on top of keeping app up to date which is good concerning the seemingly high cost of entry. Excellent value and this app bundle (picked up the camera duo) has allowed me to use my iPhone x as part of a professional setup for my youtube channel without investing in a new camera. I LOVE that I can use my iPad as a viewfinder and controller. That alone was worth it. Love this app.

Yes I am on a beta. But. Everything seems to work ok with this app except detecting external microphones. I have found others with the same problem. My whole setup is fine, it is NOT a hardware issue. I downgraded to iOS 11 and it worked fine. Wish I had known because now I can’t use this $20 app until the GM drops and I hope it’ll work then. Hopefully FP checks it out in the meantime because this really grinds my gears I can’t use it for what I bought it for.

SFDex's Review of Filmic ProReviewed on 8/31/18 5:31 AM
Writing an updated review. The iPhone video camera is remarkably good. I’m using Filmic Pro on an iPhone 8+, and this app gives me manual control over just about everything. I can lock and manually control focus, exposure, and even color temperature. There are various profiles to shoot with that allow for better post-production color correction. I love how well Filmic Pro and LumaFusion work together as an acquisition/post suite, all on a single device. The interface is well thought out and easy to use, once you get used to it. Being able to bring up focus peaking, zebras, and other overlays with a touch makes it remarkably easy to make sure I’m getting exactly the image I want. This app has allowed me to leave my DSLR home for many of my professional recording sessions. I just added Filmic Remote to my toolkit. I’ve only used it in circumstances where I have a strong wifi network so far, but it works really well. It’s incredibly useful to be able to control the iPhone camera without touching it, and pretty much all of the tools you’d use in Filmic Pro are readily available in Filmic Remote. Well worth the price!

Bought the app hoping that I would be able to shoot in log mode. Spent my $15.00 when in app realized that I’m unable to access log mode. Attempted to buy the kit for $9.00 it’s giving me iTunes error because the app allows me to buy the app but not allows me to make the in app purchase because of country ... all these disclaimers should be laid out in the app so people don’t make the first purchase and then end up with a useless partial app.... totally annoyed

TheFreeDutchman's Review of Filmic ProReviewed on 8/29/18 12:53 PM
Hidden in the footnotes a bazillion paragraphs into the description is the fact that you’ll need to pay extra to unlock flat and log picture profiles. Come on, guys. Charge $20-25 for the entire thing and include these options from the get-go. No amateur who doesn’t want to peak at histograms and lock exposure is going to use Filmic Pro anyway, and those who do will pay $10 bucks more. Otherwise it’s a great app and definitely a significant upgrade to the iPhone camera app.

goblin89's Review of Filmic ProReviewed on 8/11/18 1:04 AM
99% of the time (rough guess) footage gets saved and the app is great to control. It reliably loses footage when phone shuts down mid shoot due to depleted battery, but that can be understood as an edge case. Once after shooting a 2-hour timelapse (a frame each 30 sec) the footage haven’t gotten saved. App didn’t crash, battery was well in the green and storage plenty. Footage never appeared in Photos, seems to exist in app’s built-in roll as a corrupted entry, from where an invalid file can be saved to iCloud Files (I’ll try fiddling with it on laptop later). I don’t know whether it’s out of the realm of possibility given iOS APIs but as an engineer I would try ensuring the footage gets continuously recorded into a backup file which does not get deleted until the output is saved and double-checked. With a low-FPS timelapse like I often do there’s so little data to write even if it shoots for hours, maintaining 2 or 3 backup files simultaneously would not be an issue and could possibly save a whole lot of frustration. Being able to shoot a timelapse with fixed ISO/exposure is great and something you can’t do with iPhone’s built-in timelapse feature. White balance UI is not really clear when I use a white sheet—I hit the tiny AWB button and try to guess whether it worked or not as there seems little feedback.

I am fiddling more with dials and menus of this app than capturing moments. - poor/missing customer support when I sent them email about the above issues

If you enjoy shooting video on your phone or just want to learn, this app was made for you. Current average rating of 3.5 stars and I don’t why. I assume DPs are checking this app out and sad that a few “key features” are missing. This app and developer owe me nothing. I’m happy and excited about everything it offers. Seriously. There are limits but that’s when your creative problem solving really sets in. Can’t say enough good things about this app. Worth every penny. It has changed my life.

Adventure Seeking's Review of Filmic ProReviewed on 7/7/18 8:55 PM
After all the hype I paid for filmic pro to go with my stabilizer. After linking the app and filming with it, my iPhone SE heated up terribly. I used the phone without the stabilizer and yet again it heats up. No other app I have (lumafusion, film graders, pho editors, etc.) does this. I have read of other users having this problem, and when they ask for help, they have to change this and do that, not me! Didn’t buy this for a hassle. There are others that don’t have this issue, fix it and I will up my rating. Won’t hold my breath.

Ananmyous's Review of Filmic ProReviewed on 7/18/18 3:09 PM
I was faced with a choice. I love shooting high res video and making little montages in my free time. I’m super crazy about how I shoot, what I shoot, and then how it looks. I’m a little outdated now on an iPhone 7+, but I had to chose between investing a bunch of money into a nice video camera or an app. Well, I bought the app and I have the DJI Osmo Mobile and it looks fantastic. I either shoot in 4K extreme or 120fps 1080p extreme depending on what I want to get out of the shot. The only issues I’ve encountered thus far would be sometimes when I lock the shutter and software ISO, my focus gets weird. Often times I rely on auto focus since it’s my phone, and when I shoot the extreme stuff it has to dim the screen which makes it difficult to tell if I’m in focus or not. The special modes do make a bit of a difference to show what’s in critical focus though. Another issue would be something out of The developers reach, and that’s the built in stabilization. From my understanding you can’t actually turn it off, and the result is when you “step” it “jiggles” the video. You can watch YouTube videos to see what I’m talking about. But with a gimbal and smooth motion I’ve been able to avoid this entirely with small hiccups here and there. One of the last - most disappointing issues was when I purchased the expansion in the app. It may be my phone can’t handle it but I tried shooting 4K extreme in D-log and my phone started dropping serious frames. Which is another thing that may be out of reach for the developers that I totally understand. Overall, I would recommend this app to anyone that has a phone with an amazing camera. I would only mention that they would need a serious screen and serious hardware to actually process it, but for the price I absolutely love it. The camera on the iPhone 7+ is already outdated but the video it shoots in extreme is absolutely amazing. I can tell a huge difference from the Apple 23/32mb/s as compared to 100mb/s. I don’t know if that’s the right measurement in terms of the acronym but the numbers are correct. Even the 1080p looks fantastic at extreme. Be warned. Shooting this kind of video also takes up ALOT of battery and space. Worth every penny if you want to get into cinematography for fun. This won’t replace a dslr though. I am thoroughly happy with my purchase!

Why have the developers completely ignore that their amazing pro app does not work on iPhone X. This is the best pro camera but it fails to work on a 1k iPhone X. It seriously needs to be noted here that this version is not compatible with the almost one year old iPhone X. It pains me to write this here because I have shot professional films with this app on my older iPhone and it never crashed. I have also talked to other filmmakers using iPhone X and they all experience crashes and can no longer use FilmicPRO for important shoots. Why have you completely ignored these bugs and continue to sale the app when it fails to work. You have also failed to reply to other reviews pointing out that the app crashes iPhone X? PLEASE REPLY WITH YOUR PLANS WHEN YOU WILL MAKE THIS APP STABLE AGAIN.
HoustonSoundGuy's Review of Filmic ProReviewed on 7/14/18 12:45 PM
Used this app to shoot a project and loved the flexibility of the manual controls. There are 2 things that need work: 1- the audio slider is so small that I could not easily control the volume. The slider jumps to where the contact is sensed and too small for me to see my adjustment till I move my finger away. 2- Must add a visible alert that the storage is full and content is not being recorded. I lost about 4 clips. I saw the transparent blocks in the play list but was not able to view or retrieve them once I cleared space on the phone. Not sure why the app records when there is nowhere to put the footage. If I missed something please correct me.

I’m a beta tester and was aware of this update with the new audio framework. The effort here was well worth it. Sound quality and control from the audio gain adjustment are fantastic. Resolved issues with my beloved Shure mv88 mic. The audio in this app is now superb and worthy of being a standalone app. In fact I will be using filmic pro on a second device purely to capture audio. Bravo!
nva9's Review of Filmic ProReviewed on 7/10/18 6:48 AM
Really digging this app, it’s awesome to have such great manual control on an iPhone. But it would be that much better if it could pair with my Zhiyun Smooth 4. The thing has a follow focus — a tool that I would love to use in FP, and not just in Zhiyun’s lackluster app. Please add this! Racking focus in FP is really hard while using a gimbal, and this would step up the game of video taken with FP considerably.
Fender03's Review of Filmic ProReviewed on 7/10/18 2:41 PM
I love the rich features on this app! The problem is it seems to freeze up fairly often, and when I record in 4K, the video will just stop randomly. I have an iPhone 8+ 64Gig, so I’m not sure what the problem is.
Penningtonsm's Review of Filmic ProReviewed on 7/1/18 3:39 PM
I’m not sure how this app is sub four stars. It’s almost perfect. Go on YouTube and watch any smartphone videography video and the first thing they will tell you is Ito run, and get filmic pro app. It is hands down the best app for doing videos with a smartphone. Coupled with some sort of gimbal (Osmo Mobile 2 is my choice) and you have the beginnings of some awesome footage. Allows you to shoot in higher but rates and also in log for the best color grading available. Also different frame rates like 24 FPS for that cinematic look. Love love love this app.

I love this app, it has so many amazing features, but for the third time, I have set up my phone to take a recording of a concert and lost all my audio. Yes, I did check to make sure my audio settings were on my phone’s mic (not that I should have to, audio is pretty basic). However upon reviewing to footage NO AUDIO! This is very upsetting, because I have lost audio from several once in a lifetime experiences already such as traveling or going to see a band in concert.

tubercortez's Review of Filmic ProReviewed on 6/27/18 3:53 AM
I just downloaded filmic pro . The whole reason I got it was because it’s being advertised all over . Now you pay almost 20 dollars to be able to use everything that comes with it , but there is a catch . You pay 14.99 but you can’t use the color profiles unless you pay another 10 dollars you don’t know this until you have already downloaded the program an are getting familiar with it. That’s is a deal killer right there I have yet to spend this much money for a program you don’t have full access to unless you pay for the program and extra for the rest not what I expected .
Xohmer's Review of Filmic ProReviewed on 6/26/18 6:46 PM
I think this app has probably the most comprehensive feature set of any app in its class. And the features are mostly well thought out. I like the look and feel of the interface overall. But there are a few annoying bugs with this interface where things just don't work like they are supposed to. For instance, sometimes the button to bring up the manual controls would just stop working for no apparent reason. Literally nothing happens when you push the button. And the swipe in gesture to activate the manual controls would not work either. This has happened to me more than a few times already. And I have only had this app for a couple of days. Also, I was able to swipe left and delete a video in the library. But when I tried to swipe again to delete a 2nd video, the delete option would not come up. Another one, when I try to bring up the imaging panel, it would tell me that the white balance settings are not available, or something along those lines. Can't remember the exact message. Again, has happened more than once. The only way I have found to temporary "fix" all of the above mentioned issues is to completely shut the app down and restart. Overall, I like what they done with the app. And I am hopeful that they will get all these annoying interface issues patched up soon. Developers, please spend a bit more time testing the app prior to release. I have found all these bugs in less than 5 hours total of using the app. Taking only one star away given the awesome feature set.

I don’t generally favor writing bad reviews but advertising that the app shoots in LOG on iPhone (the only reason I purchased it) only to find out that that’s a $10 premium feature is a pretty heinous bait-and-switch.

Kram Sacul's Review of Filmic ProReviewed on 6/20/18 4:01 AM
Let me just say that Filmic Pro is a great camera app with many powerful features. Undoubtedly the best in the store, but after using it for a while on different projects there are some issues which hold it back: The manual ISO and shutter speed controls are nice looking but clunky to use. There’s also no ISO or shutter speed priority mode. When you lock ISO or shutter speed it locks both. You should be able to lock the shutter speed and let the app adjust the ISO automatically. Other camera apps can do this. The ISO and shutter speed values are hidden from the main interface. It’s baffling how this was overlooked. They should be right there next to the color temp. It doesn’t save your white balance, shutter or ISO settings after you close the app so you have to constantly set these over and over again. Really annoying. The stabilization option can cause really bad warping/jello artifacts in the image when set to above 1080p with lower than 48fps frame rates. The default camera app doesn’t have this problem. The fancy live analytics modes are limited to 30fps and below if you shoot in 4K. Doesn’t work with 4K 60fps. No 2:1/18:9 aspect ratio option. 17:9 shouldn’t even be in there. A custom option would be ideal. I really want to love Filmic Pro but in its current incarnation it’s often a pain to use, missing some basic features and drains your battery like crazy. The $9.99 upcharge for the flat and log profiles is also lame, especially when you can’t even use them with 60fps. A shame because there really is no alternative that offers so much potential.
Puerto rican 1997's Review of Filmic ProReviewed on 6/2/18 6:22 AM
This is by far the most powerful filming app in the AppStore and has push the limits of what’s possible... Only thing that sets this app back is that it doesn’t have the HDR video that the built in camera has which in the right conditions can be almost crazy stunning, And being that this feature isn’t built into filmic pro, sometimes shots with sky’s can be blown out even with proper exposures when compared to iPhone native app, *only applies in certain lighting*

smalljune81's Review of Filmic ProReviewed on 6/17/18 6:18 PM
I am a Zhiyun Smooth3 user. Filmic pro is a user's settlement to maximize the chances of using a smartphone that is already in use, rather than a professional user using expensive equipment. So, I chose Smooth, which I think is better than OSMO in terms of caustic ratio. Unfortunately, Filmic pro does not support Smooth. Please support the software option for Smooth users like me.
OttoV68's Review of Filmic ProReviewed on 6/17/18 3:44 PM
I use an iPhone 6s. I was excited that I could shoot 24fps with this app until I tried it. Holding the phone with my hand the footage is so shaky whether I use the image stabilization option or not. I might as well just use my regular iPhone camera. No 24fps but at least I use the footage and it's not shaking all over the place. Unless I'm missing something I don't know why the rave for this app. Absolutely horrible.

I am a photographer and I come from the film world and understand all the basics of still photography technology. Now with this app I can fully control movie making process to the same high-level that I do in photography which is truly amazing because I am using an iPhone 7 to do this! Enjoy you will not regret it as long as you read the information try all the settings over and over Until you believe you know it! Then you will have it under your control it’s that easy!
RedSymbol/'s Review of Filmic ProReviewed on 6/13/18 3:32 PM
Great App. The in-app microphone is the best when compared to other video Apps, but I feel that the creators put to much focus on it. For example, I have manually turned off the mic multiple times only to close the App and return to it being engaged again. The quality and manual focus options are so smooth and have so much potential that this app partnered with a gimble steadycam could give the even the most pedestrian filmmaker into a national festival. I guess what I’m saying is that they should scrap the microphone entirely and enhance what is already the best focus and depth of field on the AppStore. Basically, if the quality of the footage is going to be as professional as it is, then it’s kind of bogus to assume that the microphone recorder is going to get the job done in post. Who are they appeasing? Wake up, yr not SnapChat...and that’s OK. I love yr app, though. Like I said, get a steady-cam or a cheap tripod and tell a story about something that explains how you feel about things because FILMpro is really killing it with quality.

Actartactivist's Review of Filmic ProReviewed on 5/9/18 9:23 PM
I’ve been using filmicpro for years (back when the app was $1.99 and iPhone 4’s were all the rage!). I was excited about the idea of iPhone filmmaking then and made a number of projects for the iPhone film festival circuit. Then I stepped away from iPhone filmmaking to focus on other indie films with a variety of camera types (not mobile phone related.). After a few years, I came back to this app and iPhone filmmaking because I love the flexibility of it. I purchased the new $9.99 additional feature with LOG as a setting option and I have to say, I am SO SO pleased to see FilMIC pro has continued to update their app and make iPhone filmmaking more of a legitimate and credible option for the independent filmmaker! The newest features with adjusting the ISO, focus pull, light balance, etc is really awesome! With a few options in lens attachments in addition to this app I really love how versatile it is becoming. It’s still not going to give you the performance of a DSLR or studio level camera, but it is definitely a viable option for filmmakers now! And I love it!
Kram Sacul's Review of Filmic ProReviewed on 5/9/18 2:59 AM
I’ve read a lot of good things about Filmic Pro and how I could get the best video from my X. After using the app off and on for a few weeks I would agree that it’s fantastic. It has some issues though: Auto-shutter in frame rates causes frame drops/stutters when recording 60fps video. Set to 60hz to avoid this. The fancy live analytic views don’t work with 4K 60fps video. Not sure if this is a bug or a limitation. The ability to switch profiles are an extra $9.99. I knew this before I bought the app but this is more than a little lame. Anything with Pro in it should include everything. It’s a real battery drainer. This is with just using the app normally and not enabling any of the special analytic modes or manual controls. Really needs a 18:9/2:1 aspect ratio option. Custom ratios would be awesome.

Cody P!'s Review of Filmic ProReviewed on 5/3/18 7:37 PM
The things that this app can do are amazing. But I’m gonna let the advertisements tell you about that. I’m here to talk about what I don’t like, and then I’ll fix my review accordingly. The EXPORT. I shoot my mobile videos in short clips so they’re easy to edit. I end up with a ton of small files. But Filmic can’t export very many at a time, and there is no confirmation as to whether the export was successful. So I’ll go to export 10 fifteen second clips and there will be no notifications as to if it even worked or not. Then when I go to check photos I will have exported 3 of them out of order. I’ve got the iPhone X. These things are the pinnacle of mobile technology. I know I’m pushing it to the max, but a confirmation of export or a defined file limit would be appreciated. Also, get a deal with Zhiyun, so I can do subject following on my gimbal in Filmic. I’d pay a few more bucks for a solid update. I know I’m already getting a lot of bang for my buck, and I’m thankful. But I’d love these to things to make it a truly elite product. Especially when there are free apps with similar capabilities. Thanks filmic!

I’m just getting into filmmaking and every part of my research about what apps to choose sent me here to Filmic. I was able to begin filming quite quickly with very little training on the features. At the same time, there is a depth of features that will allow me to dial things in as I develop in my skills and knowledge. My only request at this time would be support for an expanded range of gimbals. Filmic currently supports Dji osmo gimbals, I have an EVO sp-pro, and so I’m limited on some features that are available to other users. Other than that, keep up the good work!

Greetings! This past weekend I had the pleasure of shooting a short film using this App and I have one note that can’t go without mentioning: -Exposure changes: my DP and I found that even when we had our exposure locked the exposure of the image would change as characters moved in and around the frame. We found that restarting the app helped with this but it definitely had a few drawbacks to the flow of production. Other than that I LOVE this app and will go tire to use it on future works either as running a B Cam or as another A Cam for another short or even a feature!

I purchased this app because I had heard many great things about it and I will say that I was very impressed with a lot of the tricks of this app has to offer. However what’s been disappointing me over and over again is it the app has been crashing when using high frame rates, and not even for that long of a period. It will freeze when entering the review portion of the app where I would view the videos I’ve taken. I’ve also had times where I am switching resolutions and the app goes into mirror mode, which I’m sure is not supposed to happen. The image becomes upside down and reversed left to right making it impossible to record until I shut down the app completely and sometimes even have to turn off my phone. I have had the focus and exposure dials randomly start turning on me and I’ve also had exposure settings changed even though I have had them locked in. Overall I’m pretty disappointed because I never had these issues with ProMovie recorder which was only three dollars and I had heard amazing things about this app. These bugs could get taken care of I would be 100% satisfied because there are a lot of great things this app provides but I’m just not there yet. Thanks guys.

Why the 1 Star?? I contacted FilMic Pro to get a question answered. After 3 attempts to talk with someone and over a week and a half later someone finally got back to me. The response was sub-par at best. This lack of communication is Totally Unacceptable!!! FilMic Pro also changed their shutter speed settings. This means that if so want to shoot at 120p or 60p the only option is 100, 200 or 300 to try to match the 180 degree rule. It’s a problem because if the shutter speed is too high it creates a stutters effect when there is camera movement. I don’t know why they took away the option for more exact shutter speeds???!!!

App continues to crash randomly. Sometimes it will not save videos to camera roll even tho save to camera roll is selected. There are various other bugs that also need to be fixed. When this app works like it’s supposed to, it’s wonderful.

Love the control the app gives, is there going to be an update for iPhone X to be used full screen without the black bars? And is there a way to scroll through recorded clips in a full screen instead of just the little tab that shows 2-3 clips at a time as you scroll?
JFVisuals's Review of Filmic ProReviewed on 4/27/18 11:35 AM
Filmic Pro is amazing and hands down the best app out there. That said there is one flaw - Ability to use LUTs in app. I shot log but having the ability to use a LUT on top of that would stream line everything!

KimInDenver's Review of Filmic ProReviewed on 4/26/18 7:39 PM
This app is constantly crashing. I have trie to re-download multiple times. When I open the app, it immediately closes. I restart my device and I can get the app to stay open, but when I record, it either stops or records to a black screen or nothingness. I also have issues where it inconsistently records to the microphone. Don’t waste your money. I hope they will give me a refund.
D-Seven's Review of Filmic ProReviewed on 4/26/18 6:53 PM
Saved money and waited 11 months to do videos on Japan cherry blossom. Went there and half of the videos have no sound. It just stopped recording sound at some point. This app single handily sabotaged my $4000 project. Now I’m back and still can’t get it to record audio. Either microphone. I have iPhone 6s Plus.
j2nice78's Review of Filmic ProReviewed on 4/25/18 3:19 PM
I think this will be a good option for B-roll in conjunction with my DSLRs using my DJI Osmo Mobile and iPhone. However, the analytics functions disappear. They are there for a second and then they’re gone. I don’t know if maybe it’s because I am using an older iPhone. Also, no 4K option. I know it can be done with an iPhone 5s. I have seen it done. I even have a $2.99 app installed that gets me useable footage that is just slightly less than 4K. Hands down FilMic Pro is the clear winner in the category of apps that can get you cinematic footage on your iPhone, just don’t forget about those of us that don’t upgrade our phones as often. If my disappearing options are not related to the age of my phone, I would love to know what is causing it. I would love it if I could even get 1440p but all I can get is 1080p. One other thing, I am running iOS 11.3 if that helps.
Spectr0l's Review of Filmic ProReviewed on 4/22/18 11:04 PM
We use FiLMIC Pro on all our shoots at the hospital. Be it surgical procedures or for run & gun interviews. FiLMIC Pro constantly gives us the leverage over other solutions, in the control of how our shots can be set up & look, to the standard we want to have (FPS, audio, mics, rez etc) Going into any shoot with FiLMIC Pro on our phones means that we have the best solution on the market to shoot and edit some of the most delicate and intricate of settings.

App crashes frequently when resuming a session after app has been running in the background. Analytics (zebra stripes, clipping, focus peaking, etc.) don’t work on iPhone X. Drains battery and is causing overheating issues. Worried about long-term damage to battery. I’ve reinstalled the app multiple times hoping to fix problems but the issues persist. Seems like it would be a great app if it worked.

I thought the LOG setting would come with buying the Filmic Pro app as advertised, but there’s actually a second Cinematographer Kit you have to purchase for $10 just to get LOG. That’s a total of $25, so don’t get this if you’re expecting to get all the features for $15.
John Williams Jr.'s Review of Filmic ProReviewed on 4/1/18 9:07 AM
I paid for this over 5 months ago. I’ve been using it with DJI Mobile, as I found many recommendations for this kind of setup. It’s been problematic in that I will shoot lots of footage and some will be missing. File name is there with a big fat 0 for the file size. Where is it? I’m using an iPhone 8 Plus, with the latest software. I might have to can the whole thing though. Tired of loosing valuable footage that I can only shoot once.

ivanplazacic's Review of Filmic ProReviewed on 4/1/18 7:02 PM
This app gives great image, but it doesn't matter when you cannot open any of it in Premiere Pro nor AME. There are third party programs that can encode it in a supported format, but you don't get more than 13secs of video nor 4K. That's why I don't use this app at all, and why I wouldn't recommend.

kidtreo's Review of Filmic ProReviewed on 3/4/18 12:27 PM
I’m a professional TV / Feature Film cinematographer who took a chance using iPhone 7+ (following best practices with 100gb space free) to capture b-roll of an interview, and my 1st use if of this app yielded a couple (unfortunately essential) clips of footage at TWELVE frames per second. The company’s support was very nice and responsive but ultimately of no help as they could not fix or even determine cause of issue. So in summary, my footage was ruined, and also this app does not offer PRO frame rate of 23.98 drop frame to match other actual pro cameras (which is essential) and seems to be offered by a different $100 app (unconfirmed) which I now regret not trying. Also focus assist could be better as shots That read sharp were a bit outside of DOF. All in all, iPhones don’t seem ready to be reliable professional on set tools yet. Will wait another year or two and see where things are at. Not hating this company specifically - they’re very nice - the tech is still simply too young I think.

TXRedneck15's Review of Filmic ProReviewed on 2/8/18 1:38 PM
The user interface is clean and well workable. From a videographers perspective there’s not much missing. However from an iPhone user’s perspective I’d wish there was an option to take still photos as well. That way I could replace the iOS native camera app with Filmic Pro. But that’s wishful thinking, Filmic Pro won’t let you take individual photos. I paid $14.99 for the app and did not find any indication before my purchase that I needed to spend another $9.99 for an add-on to be able to use the full potential of the app. So basically Filmic becomes Pro only when you spend about $25 on it. That was a bitter surprise. So honestly I think it’s over priced. One more thing, the LOG recording works only up to 60fps capturing so creating smooth slow motion footage in LOG mode won’t work. Update, Feb8,2018: I very much appreciate the fast and detailed response of the developer. I take it as proof that they do care about their product and their customers. It doesn’t change my opinion that the pricing should be outlined clearer though. When I buy a Pro product I expect Pro features included. And again the ability to take still shots, potentially even while recording video, would be great. The native iOS camera app shows how it’s done. I changed my rating to reflect the efforts and the customer service.
Cerebrito's Review of Filmic ProReviewed on 2/7/18 1:39 PM
I have enjoyed this app over the years. I for one rarely write reviews however I felt compelled to do so. My biggest issue right now is the mirror problem that has started since the last update. Prior to this issues it would have been a complete 5 star rating. Fix the issue and I will edit this and give it 5 stars. New bites of this app, don't get discourage with this minor bug. This app is well worth the money. I just hope they fix this issue. UPDATE: So they finally fixed the issue and it was working fantastic. Then I updated to the current iOS and now the app ceased to function... I heavily depend on this app to do a lot of my filming. FIX IT!!!

Tfuqua11's Review of Filmic ProReviewed on 2/6/18 11:36 PM
Like with most Apps this involved, I’m sure at some point the multiple issues will be worked out. But using a brand new IPhone X and spending the $$ for the App, you’d think MOST of the bugs ( there’s many) would be not existent at this point. If you’re going to charge at minimum $14.99 for this, make sure the customer is going to be blown away!! I’m not lol. Oh, and the audio pick up is probably the worst of ANY App. Very sad indeed. 💩💯 Edit/ Update: After deleting/ re-downloading the App a couple of times, the App has functioned flawlessly!! Definitely a 5 Star App, and worth every penny 💥

I’ve had this app for a while now and loved it so much but I just tried to use for the first time in a while and now the mic isn’t picking up any sound. I restored to default settings, didn’t work. I uninstalled and installed the app again, didn’t work. I restarted my phone, didn’t work. The audio that’s being picked up is at a level that’s basically soundless. I can barely hear. Also there’s nothing wrong with my phone because my Camera app, Snapchat, and Instagram are still recording video with great sound. I need this fixed ASAP!!!

MyEme's Review of Filmic ProReviewed on 2/27/18 3:45 AM
I hardly ever write reviews but Filmic really earned a great review. Works great on my iPhone 6s. A really well-designed and full-featured app that fit my need for creating a more professional video than what I could have done with the native camera app. I had a bit of a hiccup trying to get the already-paid-for pro Kit onto my iPad, but it turned out to be an Apple App Store UI issue. Even so, Filmic Support was super helpful and responsive and helped me get over that hurdle. One minor area for improvements I’d suggest — the linking between the Remote on my iPad and FilmicPro on my iPhone was slow to be recognized and the pairing disconnected once (I’ve used it in 2 sessions so far). That said, I’m very happy with the FilmicPro kit bundle. KUDOS to the Developers and to Support!!
Grittle's Review of Filmic ProReviewed on 2/27/18 12:26 AM
I really like what this app has to offer, however, it drains my battery faster then any app I have ever used. I recorded a 15 min clip at 100% battery life. It drained it completely. Not to mention my phone over heated to the point that I got a warning from my phone that it was too hot. It also crashes multiple times while using it and erases my settings. This is really frustrating. For reference, I’m using an iPhone 6+.
Dan Dunmire's Review of Filmic ProReviewed on 2/27/18 10:46 AM
Review Update: Thank you developers for the quick response and feedback. While I understand the need to update the app; it would take far more time to update the app to replace the 2.59:1 with 3:2 than it would to replace the text in the literature and on the site to reflect that change as well. The manual being a compiled PDF shouldn’t take the time it has taken to address this and on the site itself it still lists 2.59:1 as a framing option. I do thank you for the clarification and quick response. Original Review: Everything I have seen directed me to Filmic Pro for my handheld cinematography. Which to me was a massive testament to this app. $25 for the app and all of its features is a great price. My issue with it is that the entire reason I purchased this powerhouse was to shoot in 2.59:1; an option replaced on my iPhone 8 Plus with 3:2. There’s no literature I can find for how to get this option back; nothing in the manual; and nothing in the Aspect Ratio video on the site. I’ll keep the app as I love the lighting controls as well as the dynamic focal point control; this app gives a fantastic angle of control to my cinematography that I no longer need my Canon or Nikon to achieve.

Danny Dolla's Review of Filmic ProReviewed on 2/24/18 4:01 PM
What I mean: I downloaded this app years ago when it first came out on the App Store and been using it off and on since then. Of course there was some issues back then, like crashing and losing my footage, but it has developed into a portable Cinematic Camera System. Now I’m using it more and in the process of shooting a music video. I’m using the Moondog Labs Lens with the Beast Grip Pro, with the FiLMiC Pro App and every test video I shoot looks like a instant masterpiece!

1. Videos don't capture sounds 2. You'll drain over 5% battery per minute as soon as the app is opened, making me have to keep a charger plugged in at all times 3. Lags too much 4. Before, you'd be able to capture at slower frames & playback at faster frames & still capture audio, now if you want audio, you are forced to match capture & playback frames per second This app is worth less than $10, including the extra features within the app that allows for film recording which I stupidly paid another $10 for

Not a lot of developers take the time to explain what caused an issue and exactly every step to correct it with little to no interruption towards the projects you already have in progress. They even gave me a contact email if the issue wasn’t resolved after preforming those steps. I appreciate the FiLMIC team for the work they put in, back to 5 stars from me. Thanks guys

For some reason whenever I click the record button on the Osmo Mobile 2, instead of starting the recording on Filmic Pro, the app starts cycling through it’s different manual settings.

I was in a hurry because I had to take some videos and thought I’d use this app but while exploring I accidentally clicked the purchase with my thumb on the ID sensor. I pressed cancel twice but it still purchased it. Other than that, it’s a good app. I just didn’t understand what I was doing because I was in a rush to shoot.

App crashes after every shot. I've lost my footage!
flyguy95rrr's Review of Filmic ProReviewed on 12/29/18 1:13 PM
For anyone on the fence of buying this app, do it, it’s amazing and literally unlocks features on your phone that most of us would kill for to have in ALL mirrorless/DSLR cameras. It’s an amazing tool and well worth the money. With that said my only complaint would be for you guys to please change how the shutter speed lock/unlock currently functions and make it more failsafe or add an EXTRA step to unlock it. A setting that most of us would want to ALWAYS remain the same once set (shutter) is right in the exact vicinity of a setting that we will be constantly tapping and swiping to change throughout the shooting day (ISO) making the possibility of accidentally double tapping off the shutter lock very common.

Alexander Ill's Review of Filmic ProReviewed on 12/29/18 1:13 PM
I want to like this app so badly, there are so many features and it’s designed so well! However, this app crashes on me constantly! I’m using it with an iPhone XS, I usually shoot in 30fps, 1080p and extreme bitrate using the log profile and I can’t get more than 5 minutes out of the app with it crashing on me and losing the video I was in the middle of shooting. I’ve done a clean install and rebooted my phone but nothin works. Will give 5 stars if the app is fixed. After doing some testing and playing around with the app I’m finding that the app crashes a lot less if you don’t save your footage to your camera roll and just keep them save in the filmic app.
Dean Winkleson's Review of Filmic ProReviewed on 12/29/18 1:13 PM
The first line you read in the description is LOG v2 is here. Well actually that feature doesn’t come with your purchase. You have to purchase a second equal in price package to get that one feature that was advertised in the first line of the description. So very misleading. There are other less expensive camera apps out there. And you will get what you pay for. I want my money back!

The Cinematographer kit price is equal with the app itself. It's too pricey. Your app already too expensive, just why?
MPH674's Review of Filmic ProReviewed on 12/22/18 12:25 PM
While I’m not a professional videographer, I do enjoy making the occasional video for my photography clients or family. The ease of use of FiLMiC Pro, along with gimbal pairing, makes it a far less expensive rig for mobile videography. Now that the remote control video lag has been corrected, it’s even better! Keep up the good work!

Fair warning that the am will not tell you when your storage is full. Just recorded a live music performance or at least I thought I did. After I closed the app and used the default phone can I was notified that my storage was full. Sure would’ve been nice to know I wasn’t actually recording. Lost a couple really good performances. Thanks
PaulMDiaz's Review of Filmic ProReviewed on 12/15/18 12:32 PM
I’ve had this app for a while now, not much has changed since I bought it. I recently purchased the LOG add on and I guess I need to learn to better expose cause the footage gets noisy when it’s not even dark. For the record, I do know how to shoot in LOG as I’ve done so on several other cameras. Not the best $25 spent!
OKchrispy's Review of Filmic ProReviewed on 12/15/18 12:32 PM
Taught foundational filmmaking with it and used it for this entire semester. Having shot with a Bolex for years and years, having this app in my pocket feels like shooting super 16 with nothing more than my copy of the ACH in my AC bag. Sigh, and it’s still all about knowing how to shoot, what a relief. Wish it had a real f-stop scale and an HUD of DOF as I shift focus and exposure. Rolling shutter seems to have disappeared. The crappy latitude typical with the iOS camera is expanded. And footage transcodes to MXF in the AVID beautifully. Sigh. Never thought I’d make movies again with all the time “convenient“ technology has stolen from me. Filmic pro is the real convenience. Add a single framing feature in app and I will actually sell my Bolex.

My gimbal (smooth 4) is listed as a device that works with this app, but it doesn’t work at all. The app will freeze up. When I’m in the middle of recording. Who do I reach out to for a refund.
KillerReviewGuy's Review of Filmic ProReviewed on 12/1/18 12:52 PM
Creates better looking video than the apple standard app, and over the years they have worked hard to create a nifty interface. Not intuitive enough and it feels overly complex for such a small device. But it’s so fantastic to have all that control!

Sure this app is loaded with fancy features and it definitely takes advantage of the iPhone camera. On the other hand there are many bugs were the app doesn’t save footage or it decides to freeze up mid shoot. Is this app cool? Yes, yes it is. Is it worth 14 dollars? No, no it’s not.

I'll press record, the timer will stop somewhere between :01-:06 seconds over and over. Have tried restarting the app, deleting and re-installing and still continuing to have this major issue. I've attended two car events to get footage of, one which was over $100 just to have this issue. Please fix, thank you!

I bought the app and use it on iPhone X’s max. No issues but guys: you need to fix the flat log for 60 frame rate and higher!!!! What is the point of using the app if I can’t have constant picture on 30, 60 and 120 frames/sec.. All the I save can’t work. I can’t mix slow motion with regular in post. I can’t use it at all in fact. This app is $15. Make it worth.
liftedjk's Review of Filmic ProReviewed on 11/4/18 2:49 PM
I wanted to step my mobile cinematography up and everything I read was saying this app was amazing. And it is. My only issue is that I thought I paid $14.99 for a “pro” version. Going thru the app I see I have to pay an additional $9.99 to unlock more features. Features I would consider to be “pro”. The app is great, just wish the price wasn’t misleading.
Ctoretto93's Review of Filmic ProReviewed on 11/3/18 5:16 PM
App worked most of the time on my iPhone 8 but ever since I switched to the XR the app would initially not load. Then it would open and the camera wouldn’t be working. And now when I try to edit the contrast on a short 13 sec video it keeps crashing. 2 stars because in its current state it’s pretty much useless. If it doesn’t get fixed I’m gonna need a refund.
Fantastic tool's Review of Filmic ProReviewed on 11/3/18 10:56 PM
Very temperamental, do not use on anything but a dedicated latest iPhone, test check and recheck. Nothing like getting to the end of a day of shooting to realize your footage is corrupt or freezes. Recent updates have made this a risky app to use for filming Does not work well with DJI Osmo 2. Frequently disconnects.
amoreno114's Review of Filmic ProReviewed on 11/29/18 12:38 PM
I rarely write reviews for anything really, but, I felt compelled to write something for this app. Honestly, I really like it. There’s nothing like being able to take your phone and shoot a video at a level where it can compete with a DSLR or video camera (to a point obviously). As someone who is beginning to get into the YouTube world and create videos, this is awesome to have. The only reason why I’ve given this 4 stars and not 5, the bugs. Sometimes, while recording for a while, the app will freeze, glitch, crash, you name it. I understand there’s a lot of features to work with, but as an aspiring vlogger/YouTuber, I’d like to work without having any of those issues. Other than that, this app is fantastic!!!
Hdhdnrhrn's Review of Filmic ProReviewed on 11/29/18 12:38 PM
If I could give this app 0 stars I most definitely would. You are better off Recording on your normal phone and then color grading it in your editing software. I brought this for a whole $15 to think that it will give me a more cinematic Look to my film but not knowing you will have to buy the whole kit which is a an additional $10. With them not evening telling you that you will not get these features without it. With me knowing how to work the app and using it comparing it to my normal phone footage it is not worth spending 15 dollars. I wish I could get a refund for this piece of *$% highly disappointed

Hate applications like this...I decided to buy the app for the soul purpose of shooting in Log format. So I pay $15 and open the app and select Log and guess what? I can't use Log because it's blocked by an in-app purchase! So, being annoyed and wanting to get my Log content, I throw another $10 bucks at this to get it enabled. Now guess what? They can't even support Log format for anything above 60fps! Quick and easy way to throw away $25 bucks.

FailureAtLife's Review of Filmic ProReviewed on 11/25/18 12:55 PM
With enough crisp light—some 2ks a handful of 650s and 1ks—you could make a hell of a feature with FilmicPro. I believe that the mistake people make is they think because it’s an iPhone they should go all low-budge and Indie and let their contrast ratios get way beyond 2:1. If you keep your actors moving smoothly and use old school techniques like 3- and 4-point lighting I think 80 percent of an audience wouldn’t know you shot on an iPhone.
Datboiiab's Review of Filmic ProReviewed on 11/25/18 12:55 PM
I love this app and it’s been great creating cinematic film via a smartphone medium but this app makes it so difficult to capture the moment. The app doesn’t save half of the footage I take in app OR to my camera roll. In the app, the video will save as a black screen that is audio-less and the initial footage won’t show up in my camera roll. The black footage is not recoverable so if this happens - which it does very often for me - you’ve lost the majority of the footage you’ve taken. I hope this is fixed soon!!
juliakatherina's Review of Filmic ProReviewed on 11/2/18 1:59 PM
This app has been so great for shooting on iPhone, I really love it. Recently though, whenever I film, the app will randomly freeze, and then a little while later the time jumps ahead to where it should be and it starts again. And then whatever I was shooting gets messed up. It is incredibly frustrating. Also, my husband uses it as well, but he doesnt deal with this issue, so I’d really love to be able to understand why it’s happening. I have deleted and re-downloaded the app so many times and it still does it.
AshuPunjabi's Review of Filmic ProReviewed on 11/17/18 12:35 PM
Someone who recently had a new passion for filmmaking, I wanted to make short films myself. However, while money was tight, this app really came in handy because it has everything a young, raw filmmaker needs to start pursuing his career. Especially with the changes in aspect ratio, resolution, frame rate, etc. Not to mention the fact that this app supports many of the drones, tripods, stabilizers needed to create amazing shots and tell great stories. This app became a filmmaker’s dream real quick and I am truly grateful that the App Store has this app in the first place.

The playback feature is a joke. I don't know why they insist on having zero onscreen controls for the video playback mode. For certain kinds of content it makes it unusable. This problem has existed for 2+ years and they still haven't improved it.

Update: the screen is no longer black but when I want to playback footage it doesn’t show the footage I just took. It also doesn’t show the filming time consistently. Sometimes it shows that it’s filming for a few seconds and sometimes it doesn’t show it at all.

Jseavers05's Review of Filmic ProReviewed on 10/26/18 6:35 PM
The app has quite a few options I appreciate like locking the exposure and awb. However, the iso and shutter speed settings are not laid out well. These should just be a simple slider like in MoviePro. Also, why doesn’t the zoom work with the DJI Osmo? Or why can’t the app record audio in stereo? The flat video setting is alright but LOG isn’t really usable due to banding during color correction. The exposure and focus locks should just be buttons instead of some off square with double tapping. This app needs to be simplified and more straightforward.

Raskul4's Review of Filmic ProReviewed on 10/21/18 11:47 PM
I hesitate to write this because on the surface filmic pro is unbelievable. An app that really pushes the iPhone to be a filming phone. However after the last update my iPhone 7 has overheated twice which resulted in shutting down. Three days ago and the second time it overheated resulted in my phones microphone not working. So now I need to take it in. Before you say I was doing something irresponsible. I have had this app for sometime now. Also, both times it overheated it was in October and I was filming indoors. This is a high processing app and to some degree might be too much for iPhones in general. I truly doubt filmic pro will but me a new phone or you for that matter so buy at your own risk.
Reviewer235's Review of Filmic ProReviewed on 10/20/18 5:36 PM
I would recommend putting a feature request on your main site so that the community can vote them up or down. I have the Remote app and I know of the Apple Watch feature but why no option in the Pro to enable the physical power button directly on the recording device to start and stop the recording? Also a manual trigger for time lapse option would help with hyperlapse recordings.

I have been using and recommending FilmicPro to my students for the past couple of years. However, I have encountered issues with audio monitoring with the latest version that made me look elsewhere after I contacted their customer service and got nowhere. They did not put much effort in solving my issue and blamed my setup when everything was working properly before the app update. They will not contact you via phone so you will have to keep writing emails back and forth. The issue persists with this latest update (6.7.2) so ProMovie Recorder+ is my new app from now on.

Firstly, I would like to say this app is brilliant! This is my go to filmography app hands down! With that being said I had a couple of questions. - do you all have plans on supporting the Freefly Movi cinema robot now that they’ve released their API? - do you all have any plans in supporting LOG for 4k 60fps? Currently, I’m only able to do LOG at 4k 30fps... - lastly, is there a way, or do you have plans, to adjust the ISO while the shutter is locked without locking the focus? It would be nice to be able to adjust the ISO with a locked shutter on the fly while maintaining auto focus...
Xohmer's Review of Filmic ProReviewed on 10/12/18 7:21 AM
Update: Developer has been very responsive to addressing issues with the app and I believe most if not all of my issues has been resolved. Adding 1 more star! Original Review: I think this app has probably the most comprehensive feature set of any app in its class. And the features are mostly well thought out. I like the look and feel of the interface overall. But there are a few annoying bugs with this interface where things just don't work like they are supposed to. For instance, sometimes the button to bring up the manual controls would just stop working for no apparent reason. Literally nothing happens when you push the button. And the swipe in gesture to activate the manual controls would not work either. This has happened to me more than a few times already. And I have only had this app for a couple of days. Also, I was able to swipe left and delete a video in the library. But when I tried to swipe again to delete a 2nd video, the delete option would not come up. Another one, when I try to bring up the imaging panel, it would tell me that the white balance settings are not available, or something along those lines. Can't remember the exact message. Again, has happened more than once. The only way I have found to temporary "fix" all of the above mentioned issues is to completely shut the app down and restart. Overall, I like what they done with the app. And I am hopeful that they will get all these annoying interface issues patched up soon. Developers, please spend a bit more time testing the app prior to release. I have found all these bugs in less than 5 hours total of using the app. Taking only one star away given the awesome feature set.
