‘Best iOS apps of 2016’– Cult of Mac

‘If you love the look of classic film, or just want to find out a bit more about how different film stocks impacts images, this is the app for you.’– Popular Photography

With film live-preview, gesture controlled white balance and exposure, true-to-film presets, custom curves, and batch editing, you’ll discover the power of your iPhone!


● Gesture Based Controls
Dial in the perfect shot quickly with gesture based white balance and exposure, highlight clipping, 2-Axis Level, Rangefinder mode, and quick review.

● Non-Destructive True-to-Film Presets
Our presets are born from an intensive side-by-side comparison process between actual film scans from a Fuji Frontier Scanner, and digital images shot with the iPhone. Mastin Labs’ proprietary color science makes it so no other app can match film as accurately as Filmborn.

● Curves
Filmborn’s curves control is powerful. The curves tool gives you the ability to control the details of the shadows, midtones, and highlights, allowing maximum creative control.

● Tone Profiles
We’ve included real scanning tone profiles such as all hard, shadow soft, and shadow hard, to help with tricky lighting situations.

● Custom Camera Kits
With 4 viewfinders, 3 virtual lenses, and 9 true-to-film presets, you can create camera kits for specific uses, such as a street photography kit, or a large format landscape kit. Effortlessly switch between your kits with a simple swipe in camera mode.

● Learn to Shoot Real Film
Filmborn™ is designed to bridge the analog history of film with its digital future. Built not only to emulate film, Filmborn also educates digital natives on the techniques and history of film. Users will find education on film photography peppered throughout the app, and ongoing education in our Filmborn User Group on Facebook.

Shoot more, edit less and achieve consistency!

Since I started using Filmborn I’ve seen a huge improvement in the quality of my mobile photography. My work is now remarkably consistent and it takes very little effort to maintain that consistency. The ability to shoot with a live film preview and adjust the exposure and white balance in the camera makes it so much easier to get a perfectly exposed photo from the start. If I need edit the photo after that it’s only small adjustments which take no time at all to do. The darkroom in Filmborn is by far my favorite photo editing experience in any app I’ve used. I love the curves tool! It’s efficient how the darkroom controls are grouped together and that I only need to save once. I find myself shooting more and editing less. Filmborn has taught me to look at my iPhone as a professional camera. It really is! I take my mobile photos more seriously now. Out of the items available in the app to purchase I think the curves tool and the custom camera kits are required purchases to really see the full power of this app. Some things I’d like to see added in the future is the ability to delete from the library and more films to purchase.

Best. Editing/Camera. App. Ever.

I absolutely love this app. I have presets from Mastin Labs for my photography and I love that I can now match my iPhone photos to DSLR photos. But for anyone who's not a photographer should definitely get this app because it has in camera actions where you manually focus and has three lenses which is super fun and looks way better than normal iPhone camera. I've told all my non-photography friends about it and they've all downloaded it and love it. So if you're unsure about this app I would say go with your gut and get it since all the presets are free unlike some other photography apps.

Great Concept, flawed execution.

I LOVE MastinLabs and the film emulations made by Kirk Mastin. I think the app is amazing! Their Lightroom emulations are amazing. But this app is such a headache to use. It's buggy, it lags, and it's locked up my phone multiple times, a few times when I tried to power it back on the red "battery empty" sign came up a few times. It seems that the app crashes the phone and messes with the power management system as well. Until these bugs are resolved, I don't think I'll be using it, hopefully the developer won't rest on their laurels and will make it better, I really want this emulation on the iPhone and I think this is the right direction for mobile photography but it needs a massive overhaul!
