App Reviews

  • Amazing!

    By Bamaskater11
    I would totally buy this again if I had to get a new apple account. I use this app instead of the main camera app.. way more functions you NEED with this app!!! HIGHLY recommend!
  • The one, the only.

    By studiomayer
    I'm a pro shooter who's frequently short on budget and personnel, and I've used Filmic on more shoots than I'm frankly willing to admit. Its feature set allows for pro-style features in your pocket and gives you the level of control necessary to squeeze the most out of your phone hardware. On location and short on memory? Filmic has your B-roll covered. Need interview shots inside a vehicle but there's no room? Filmic has you covered. Whether you're learning or you want to add some redundancy to your rig, Filmic has you covered.
  • Extremely Disappointed

    By Atreyuseven
    DON'T USE FILMIC FOR ANYTHING IMPORTANT. I've used this app for almost two years now, and hoped the updates would solve the issues by now but sadly, it is still very unstable and unreliable. I have it on iPhone 6s Plus, iPhone 7 Plus and the latest iPad Pro. Issues include: • Slow load time • Freezes when rotating device • Randomly unlocks ISO and Focus Locks • Delays when recording in 4k • Delays/freezes with "cinematography" settings, i.e. Log, Flat etc. • Delays, freezes, randomly rotates screen and crashes regularly when attempting in-app playback • Freezes/crashes when attempting to down-sample larger files • Remote function is essentially unusable

  • Amazing App

    By Qwertyspal
    Dev helped me solve my problem, this app is next level for filming, like a pocket DSLR.
  • Terrible app, cinematographer kit is an unusable rip off!

    By noroweho
    If there was an option to give zero or negative ratings, I'd do that in a heartbeat. I upgraded for the cinematographer kit to be able to shoot with a flat profile. This app almost cost me hundreds of dollars in lost footage, glad it was supposed to be used as a C camera. The app is jittery, the settings automatically get messed up on a stationary phone that nobody touches after recording stars (going from 30 to 24 frames, shutter and WB changes, and then it just freezes... now I have a bunch of files that were supposed to be 6-7 minutes long, they're gone, file size 0kb... Force quit the all a couple of times, froze immediately after opening again, restart phone, erase everything I could with 150GB left on an iPhone 7 Plus.... Switch to non log mode, surprise surprise, it worked...but I already paid for the basic app, so he extra spent on the kit is a rip off... I WANT MY MONEY BACK NOW!!! Avoid this app as the plague!!!
  • Great, Just Wish for 1 More Feature...

    By sharp40k
    The main app itself is fantastic; literally everything that I would want from a control standpoint on my SE. From pulling focus, locking white balance on my gray card to the live analytics, I really enjoy getting the right shot before going into post. That being said, the one thing that bothers me is not being able to run the "Remote" app on my Android Phablet/Tablet while using Filmic here on my iPhone. I use an iPhone SE because it's the best (and nearly only) phone for the nice, compact size, but the on-screen controls can get difficult to use when only 4" are at my disposal. Getting a separate iOS device just for this single app would really bring up the overall cost of the setup, so here's to hoping that there can be cross platform support! (Unless I've missed something...?)
  • Love this app BUT

    By AceDsk
    It does seem to lag more than expected than what people say in comments or reviews and it did freeze a lot. Could be because of my iPhone but I have an app that clears RAM, boosts memory, and I turn on sleep mode all before using the app. I love this app but really upsets me that it lags so much. When the lag problem gets fixed, I'll give you 5 stars.
  • Not working

    By Dopemurf
    As as the app starts, it cuts off. I turn off the phone and everything and still the same thing.
  • No ready for commercial release

    By LEMD49
    In terms of utility for the client, this app is not ready for commercial release simply because it tends to lock up on initiation or it lags variable times up to more than 10 seconds (blank screen -> reorientation to landscape -> focus adjust and exposure adjust -> ready) to be available for recording video. This is an overriding flaw that makes the App not suitable for commercial, reliable use for video adquision. The app has a wide range of functionalities that are superior to alternative apps but in the fundamental, i.e. responsiveness without variable latency to start recording it has failed. More info at
