With iPhocus you will have access to the manual controls for shooting your videos


● EXCLUSIVE AirFocus: With iPhocus installed in two devices you can control the parameters via Wi-Fi.
No more work only done by yourself. One does the framing and the other precisely controls the focus or other parameters, just like in a real movie shooting. Remote controls on your hands.

● Focus: Now is possible to focus (and blur) how you would like.

Use the rack focus to change the foreground in focus. Also you can enclose the distance to get the initial and final focal points of the shot saved with the Focus Range.

● Exposure: Modify the exposure value, balancing the light that your iPhone measures to see details in the darkness and in the bright.

● Frames per Second (FPS): Choose the frame rate of your video up to 240fps in an iPhone 6/iPhone 6 Plus Get ready for slo-mo!

● ISO: is the measure of light-sensitivity.

The lower the ISO number, the less sensitive it is to the light, while a higher ISO number increases the sensitivity of your camera. Your results will be sharper images with less noise depending how you want to adjust it.

● White balance: Set the right color of your images.

No more orange tones. Use the presets settings, the automatic calibration or make your own white balances. iPhocus will show you the value of temperature and dye to show you in real time the image changes .

● Auto/Manual: With the press of a button (or the "turn down volume button") you can give iPhocus full control over the parameters and tap any place of the screen to have the right focus, exposure and white balance.

"A professional tool in my hands! Mandatory purchase for those who use their iPhone on video projects" - Brokentugs

iPhocus is the video camera with manual controls you will always carry in your pocket

It has a simple but highly efficient interface, that won’t distract you from what is most important: the image.

This is the first video app that allows you to take the iPhone in horizontal position and use your thumb fingers to control the focus and exposure. IPhocus has made it easier tan ever.

"The video camera designed for professionals to professionals" - Samuel Smith

"Mobile filmmakers are often frustrated by the fact that depth of field is all too often lost on their smartphones. There are many times when a good rack focus would make a shot more dramatic, if not artsy. However, while the state of the art with smartphone video is improving rather dramatically with even ultra high definition resolution, the ability to ramp through depth of field has been elusive. But apps like iPhocus promise to change all that. And you know what? It actually works." - James DeRuvo

iPhocus was developed by a team of filmmakers, engineers and developers from US, Spain and Colombia who while looking for expensive video cameras realized they had the key in their pockets.

Don’t miss any moment, use your iPhocus app and control the focus on your images and videos.

best rack focus app. but one MAJOR flaw


it does what it's name says it does. handles focus, WELL.

it’s really the ONLY iOS camera app that will allow you to get smooth rack focusing.
cant do it in moviepro, cant do it in ultraKam, definitely not in the onboard camera. filmic pro is probably the best of the tap-focus options. but it still does the zoom search between focus points.

sadly though iphocus still has TWO major flaws (or actually omissions is a better word):
1. lack of assignable “hard stops” or any kind of numerical marker / indicator of where you are along the range. this makes precise repeat-focuses very difficult.
2. considering the lack of number 1 above, a focus-assist would be nice (peaking/false color) to let you know whats actually in focus at any give point in the range.

a zoom would be handy. but i don’t fault them for leaving it out as this is sort of a cinematic “prime lens” (meaning non-zoom capable) kind of metaphor.

controls are all easy to access and make sense. if iphocus had 2k-4k capability and hard stops / focus assist, i’d remove ALL the other video camera apps from my phone.

Amazing idea. Too many bugs.


This app doesn't work all the time. I highly recommend shooting a test video clip before you begin a serious recording of something that you don't want to miss or can't afford to retake. Because all too often the very first thing you record will have an error rendering to your camera roll. So be sure and do a test recording first to make sure that you get that error out of the way. Secondly the app will on occasion decide to close down on it's own in the middle of a recording. But I do love using the app. This is one of the few apps that I would buy again even though I rated it 2 stars.

Excellent potential. Great App


IPhoc been a subscriber to the iPhocus app for videography on my mobile devices for two years now. I find it to offer the best HUD options for a dslr camera feel.

However, downloading their latest version for my iPhone/iPad Pro has some setbacks. Matching frame rates between both devices when each device offers 4K Resolution. The iPhone app reaches 120 fps and bottoms beautifully at the normal 24 fps. While the IPad Pro 2 ranges 60 - 24fps. With resolution restraints it's impossible to use many of these attachments.

And where is the still camera? It would be nice to create director's look book.

The App offers a tethered video remote line from the iPad. have connected with an iPad Pro 2, perhaps early, but would like to see an adjustment to the video encoding time, screen viewing, screen grab, gallery display, and how far is the reach exactly?
