Excellent Video Recording App

Mavis is a fantastic app. It has a large number of professional, well laid out features. The quality of recordings is very good and it's a pleasure to use.
The servo zoom feature works very well, and as with all its features, is very intuitive.
I delayed buying the app for a while due to the price, but after having made the purchase I have no regrets. Like most things, you get what you pay for, and I think it's well worth the money, given the expertise which has gone into making this app.

If it had support for dji osmo mobile

It would be in a different league.
As it stands, it falls far behind Filmic pro with all its issues.
Filmic can do it to an extent guys. Why can’t you?

Developer Response ,

Hi Skruffe. Thanks for the comments. We'd love to support the Osmo but their SDK is in need of a major overhaul. Incorporating their SDK would dramatically reduce the performance of MAVIS and could even make it unstable. Please email us as we'd love to provide you with more information.

Great so far!

I’ve now paid for the full features of the app.
I’m really liking the professional features this app contains, it puts to shame some professional DSLRs with video features.
I love the zebras and focus peaking features. Mavis has a great choice of frame-rate, resolution and bit-depth. 4k 60f/s at 100mbps! Some sony and canon cameras that cost thousands don’t do that!
In general the app is quite stable! Had no crashes or freezes at all.

I’ve just a few things that would make the app just perfect.
I find that When adjusting my shutter speed to manual and then starting shooting, I see the shutter speed change from my setting to something accommodating for shifts in exposure. That’s unacceptable for a “manual” mode. Those need to be locked off and not be allow to change if not put to auto!
Another things is that I find the zoom technique very gimmicky. I find that digital zoom does not work for me. I tried to tap and tapp and move forward, ain’t working. Better off have a slider along the bottom across the horizon as per exposure and focus sliders, much more straightforward.

Another thing I find is that when I enable stabilisation it crops in a tiny bit. As the iPhone features optical image stabilisation that crop shouldn’t happen, correct me if I’m wrong.

Lastly, and this is a feature that I would love so much! Log! Or at least a flat/neutral color profile would be a dream.
I know filmic pro has it, so hopefully it could be implemented here too.

Thanks to the developers for the solid experience.
I’m using my iPhone 8.
