Share

FiLMiC Pro is THE Filmmaker’s App. A dedicated video camera app that respects and builds upon the high definition capabilities of the Iphone 4. FiLMiC Pro enables users to take their mobile cinematography to new heights by asserting as much manual control over camera functions as possible and including additional variable frame rates from 1-25 frames per second.

 

Maximum Control

The FiLMiC Pro control bar is thumb based to enable a rock solid grip on the camera. Designed by filmmakers it provides the best camera UI in the business with perfect access to all camera controls from a fixed, two hand grip position.

Three Reticle Systems

At the heart of FiLMiC Pro’s superior manual control functionality are three separate focus and exposure modes. This gives you more ways to personalize your shooting method than any other video camera app. Combined with the lockable control buttons and you have complete control of your shots.

Double Reticle Mode gives you two separate adjustable reticles for spot sampling focus and exposure for precision shot set up.

Single Reticle Mode provides a center positioned spot sampling reticle for both focus and exposure for sports, action or quick run and gun scenarios.

Full Frame Mode samples both both focus and exposure from the entire frame for expedient and simple shot set up.
