Moment, the corporate that introduced you one of the best glass on your cellular gadget, now provides you DSLR-like controls with their Pro Camera app. Features embody full handbook adjustment over ISO, shutter velocity, white steadiness, picture format and extra.
It needs to be famous that in the event you don’t have a shiny new gadget you gained’t be capable to use the app to its full potential as a few of its key options embody 3D contact, twin lens management, RAW picture format, 120 and 240 fps and 4K decision.
Moment says the app is for “anyone looking for pro, manual controls on their phone.” Being one in all TechCrunch’s resident picture makers, I figured I ought to take the app out for a spin and pit it in opposition to the inventory digital camera app. I enlisted my photogenic pal, Jackie, to be my muse.
Scrolling by the handbook settings was very simple and the UI by no means felt fumbly. The histogram is sweet to have and makes use of that iPhone notch properly. The app doesn’t have portrait mode, nevertheless, which Jackie and I might have cherished, as a result of, who doesn’t love that buttery (pretend) bokeh — amirite? Manipulating the publicity in video mode was equally as simple. The app didn’t have an audio meter or stage settings, so of us recording dialog or VO must plan accordingly. Luckily, our shoot didn’t want it since we have been capturing slow-mo.
For a pair further bucks you will get the identical handbook controls, audio ranges, + RAW with ProCam 5. But in the event you’re already invested within the Moment Lens ecosystem and primarily shoot pictures, the improve may very well be a worthwhile addition.
