Full featured. Rock solid. Never crashes.

The best just got better. Supports Tele lens on iPhone 7+ (adds digital stabilisation to Tele lens; very nice). Really nice UI implementation.

There are some nice video camera apps out there, but this is the one to get.
Relatively pricey for an app, but dirt cheap when you consider what it offers when coupled with the iPhone's excellent video capabilities.

:-) thanks for the glowing review! Sorry it's taken a while to get back to you.

Extremely stable!

I have purchased a variety of other Camera Apps but Mavis takes the cake. Mavis never crashes and loads just as fast as Apple’s Camera app.

Wish list
1. I wish the focus and exposure targets could be set to work like Filmic Pro’s.
2. Front facing camera even if not all features are available.
3. The ability to shoot with a flat colour profile like Filmic Pro’s log mode.

That being said this app is amazing.

Problems importing to Premiere pro


6 months and no Update for this... Was working but now I get errors with every format once importing the files to editing software. Apple default app isn't giving me the same errors. Apart from this it's a great app.
