It is designed to give as much manual control as possible over iPhone’s video shooting capabilities, in order to recreate a professional experience.

In FiLMiC Pro iPhone app, there are three shooting modes: Full Frame, Single Reticle, and Double Reticle. Each modes permit different levels of control over the exposure and focus aspects of your device’s camera. For example, Full Frame mode sets the focus and exposure based on the info from the entire frame, whereas Single Reticle sets the exposure/focus through a reticle fixed at the centre of the frame. The final one, the Double Reticle gives you maximum control over the shots; in the said mode, you’ve got two reticles that you can move around in the frame to set the exposure and focus separately.
