FiLMiC Pro v6 is the most advanced cinema video camera for mobile. Ever. FiLMiC Pro features cutting-edge capabilities and is the most responsive manual filming app available on mobile.

A multi-time iOS Video Camera App of the Year, FiLMiC Pro has been used in more high profile video projects by award winning directors than any other app:

Unsane & High Flying Bird - Steven Soderbergh
Tangerine - Sean Baker
Lose You to Love Me - Selena Gomez
Stupid Love - Lady Gaga
Detour - Michel Gondry
Snow Steam Iron - Zack Snyder
No Love Like Yours - Olivia Wilde

Previously added in v6.19.2 of FiLMiC Pro:


— Support for ProRes 4K 60fps
While the iPhone 13 pro series do not actually support true ProRes 60fps at 4K, it can be approximated by using a lower quality chroma subsample scheme (4:2:0 vs 4:2:2). We want to be upfront about how this is actually achieved, so the first time you select a frame rate in ProRes above 30fps, you’ll get an info alert with some information. But despite the inferior chrome subsample scheme required above 30fps in ProRes, we now deliver some eye-watering file sizes perfect for slow motion retiming in post.

— New Tone Mapping options:
Unfortunately you can’t turn it off, but you can switch between two types of tone mapping: Global Tone Mapping (GTM) and Local Tone Mapping (LTM). Tone Mapping is available under the Settings > Resolution panel. You’ll find it if you scroll down past your bitrate quality. GTM opportunistically lifts shadows and crompesses highlights to approximate higher dynamic range video. LTM works much like GTM, but instead of acting on the entire image, acts on local tiles or ‘pixel neighborhoods’ for more aggressive results.

— Support for Video HDR:
You can now enable Video HDR in FiLMiC Pro for enhanced dynamic range under some shooting conditions. We employ Apple’s multi-exposure image stacking technique to expand shadow detail and make highlights less susceptible to clipping. You’ll find Video HDR if you scroll down past your bitrate quality under Settings > Resolution. It is available in 8-bit and ProRes capture formats.

— Creator Survey:

— Improvements to White Balance:
Now the white balance matrix panel and the white balance temperature values displayed in the lower left of the interface on wide aspect devices are correctly in sync. Custom white balance is correctly applied between launches now, and even saved and loaded from your custom presets.

— Improvements to Clip Selection Logic in Library
Now, after deleting selected clips, we automatically take you out of clip select mode.

— If you start a recording with your audio gain set to zero, we now alert you via a system alert that your clip will not contain audio. You can ignore and never be prompted again, or continue to be alerted if clips are without sound.
