If you're looking to take your iPad and iPhone photography to the next level, then the FiLMiC Pro app is one that you should definitely consider purchasing.

Available in the App Store for $4.99, this filmic app has been awarded the Video Camera App of the Year two times in a row as well as received glowing reviews from the likes of,, Macrowld, Wired, and Film Riot.

It has also superseded the $5000 Sony FS100 and tied with the $13,000 Canon C300 in a blind audience testing at the Zacuto: Revenge of the Great camera Shoot Out, so you'll definitely get your money's worth with this amazing and game-changing app.

29.7 MB isn't a lot of space for such a high-end video camera app, so let's take a look at what this app can do for you through our Filmic pro review. Let's see if this os one of the best video camera apps that you have used.

With FiLMiC Pro, you'll forever change the way you take pictures with real-time, 4x zoom along with complete control over focus, exposure, white balance, and frame rates which include a variety of 30 motion effects that can be applied thanks to iOS technology.
