Blackmagic Design continues to revolutionize mobile filmmaking with the latest update to its iOS Camera app, propelling it beyond competitors like FiLMiC Pro. The version 1.21 update introduces expanded SLR lens support, extended ISO ranges, and a host of new features that redefine the potential of smartphone cinematography.
The renowned technology company, known for its trailblazing advancements in the cinematic realm, has fortified its iOS Camera app with enhancements that cater directly to filmmakers’ needs. Notably, the update integrates support for SLR camera lenses, enabling users to leverage the cinematic aesthetics and image circle these lenses offer. This enhancement empowers creators to experiment with various aspect ratios, aligning with the preferences of social media platforms such as Instagram and TikTok.
Among the key upgrades is the refined ISO control, allowing users to manipulate the ISO settings from as low as 21 to a high of 2116, granting greater flexibility and control over image exposure. This intuitive adjustment is easily accessible through a simple touch-and-slide mechanism on the app interface.
In addition to the lens and ISO improvements, the update bolsters support for Look-Up Tables (LUTs), streamlining the import process and facilitating comparison between different LUT versions. The app’s settings menu now includes a dedicated space for LUT installation, simplifying the process for users to incorporate and manage their desired LUTs effectively.
Furthermore, the update addresses various user experience enhancements and bug fixes. Blackmagic has rectified issues related to preview quality during phone orientation changes and resolved audio sync problems when switching lenses during recording, significantly enhancing the overall stability and usability of the app.
The Blackmagic Camera app, exclusively available for iOS devices, can be updated to version 1.21 via the iOS App Store, reaffirming the company’s commitment to empowering filmmakers with cutting-edge mobile cinematography tools.
