The application can be controlled via the Apple Watch or with an external app and even supports Dji Oslo stabilizers. A pro app, usable on iPhone and iPad, at a reasonable price. We can also mention the Filmic Remote companion app available here on the App Store which allows you to control the Filmic Pro camera remotely from another device.

Here is a cheaper alternative to Filmic Pro that offers many advanced features like exposure control, focus, white balance, image quality, framerate, video support 4K or the support of external microphones in Bluetooth. For example, it is possible to use AirPods as an external microphone for a video. This app also has a remote control app available here on the App Store to control the camera remotely from another iOS device.


Released in 2015, this app does not benefit from the notoriety of Filmic Pro, but offers tools and settings that seem particularly complete, especially on the level of meters. There is separate control of exposure and focus or shutter speed or color temperature, but also the use of external microphones, a visual audiometer, manual volume control and monitoring via headphones. Intended for connoisseurs, it is not suitable for “leisure” use and does not support the iPad.
