The Best Video App


I’ve been using Mavis for the last 5 months for recording product reviews and macro style videos. The manual focus/focus peaking work perfect for my needs, and I really enjoy using them. I also love the new features in the latest update! Zoom works great, and the function button is perfect!

The only comment I would make today is that I recently purchased an iPad Pro (10.5”), and would absolutely love it if the app supported the native screen resolution. I assume this would allow more on-screen Function buttons and capabilities as well. That giant viewfinder can be really nice for certain shots. I’d be willing to buy an iPad specific version.

This app makes my iPhone 7+ my primary video camera. Keep up the good work! You guys are awesome!

Thanks for the review!

My Go To Video App


I really enjoy using this app and like it saves directly to camera roll without having to export it manually. Love the scopes and audio meter. Manual White Balance is not easy to dial in. I wish the app would have the common WB temps ready to select or an easier number slider and same with color shift. I would like to see a horizontal and vertical tilt on screen. I would like manual target exposure and auto focus to be separate on screen selection squares. Also, another competing app has an on screen button to hold down and the camera adjusts white balance quickly based up selection point on screen - it's much better than WB in this app and would be a welcome addition.

Developer Response

Wow! Thanks for all the feedback - it really helps us improve the app. We're happy to hear you are loving it!

Great, stable app

I have used MAVIS for about a month and have shot a couple hundered clips. The clips vary in length from a few seconds to 20 minutes. I have never lost a clip. Even when I accidentally turned the phone off during recording, the clip was saved to the apps file sharing feature. I appreciate the stability of the app. I am shooting on a 7+. Tech support has been great as well. I contacted twice and they were very helpful.

Update: August 2017
Used Mavis app with Moondog Labs anamorphic lens on iPhone 7 plus to film a Scottish wedding. Recorded over 300 clips and 34 gigs in an 11 hour period with no issues. Very stable app. Looking forward to the new updated app for IOS 11.
