Videography is the ultimate remote controlled camera app for expert video and photographers. It offers all features you expect from a professional camera and can be controlled remotely in realtime from a browser. Capture stunning wild life or action shots, use it for surveillance or simply as your day-to-day camera app.
Videography's features in detail:
* Full remote control
Videography transmits high quality (up to Full-HD resolution) live video and audio that can be followed with a browser from another device on the same Wi-Fi network. Every camera function available locally can be controlled remotely. For example adjust focus, exposure, zoom, control the torch, start recordings or access the contents of your media library. When mounted on a Galileo robotic motion platform, you can even pan / tilt your camera remotely.
* Full-HD video recording
Videos can be recorded in up to 1080p with CD quality audio. If size of your recordings matters, flexible lower resolution formats can be chosen as well.
* Slow motion and time-lapse
The time scale for video recordings can be adjusted on the fly in a range from 0.25x to 256x to create amazing slow motion or time lapse videos. Retiming is done in real time without any post processing !
* High resolution photos
Photos can be captured with the highest resolution supported by the camera hardware. Videography supports a timer for self portraits and a counter to automatically capture a series of pictures. Configurable shutter sound effects guarantee you a smile :-)
* Motion, audio and face detection
Videography runs advanced detection algorithms on the camera input to detect motion, faces or audio to trigger automated video or photo recordings. Setup an intelligent surveillance camera or capture amazing action and wild life shots !
* Object tracking and Motrr Galileo support
When mounted in a Galileo robotic motion platform (see motrr.com) you can not only remotely pan/tilt your camera: Videography will even automatically follow faces, motion or colored objects to keep them in the center of the view.
* Detailed camera controls
Position focus, exposure and white balance. Up to 16x zoom for video (even on iPhone 4s) and photos. Switch between front and back camera. Adjust the torch mode and level. Control video and photo stabilization. If something can be adjusted on the camera, Videography can control it locally on your device as well as remotely with your browser.
* Dropbox support
You can link Videography with your Dropbox account so that recordings are uploaded automatically to your Dropbox. Access your recordings immediately from any device and everywhere in the Internet !
* Email distribution
Photos and short video clips can be sent automatically via email when they are taken. Get informed immediately when something important happens in front of the camera.
* Beautiful media library
To manage your recordings Videography features a beautiful media library. You can preview your photos and videos or share them via Mail, AirDrop, Twitter or Facebook. You can also directly access recordings from your camera roll and your Dropbox.
* Intuitive user interface
Videography has a clean and intuitive user interface that is highly configurable. It can rotate or you can pin the controls to one orientation. A grid overlay and gyro based horizon helps you to get the perfect orientation for your shots.
* Developer API
You are a maker and want to create your own remote camera controller ? Visit our website, we've even published the full remote control API for Videography.
* Videography runs best on an iPhone 4s or higher. The iPhone 4 does not support detection, tracking and slow motion mode. For highest performance and slow motion recordings an iPhone 5s is recommended.
* Now allows camera and video stream to continue while screen is dimmed
* Now supports exporting photos and videos to camera roll
* Bugfixes and optimizations for iOS9
Ratings and Reviews
Needs lots of work, Updated
There's still tracking bugs and connectivity issues. Plus no updates since July 😕
Face and motion tracking are inconsistent on my iPhone 5. Sometimes they don't even want to work with the back camera. I have to turn settings on and off or restart the app to get them to work. It seems to work much better with front camera. I haven't tried color tracking too much. I have a motrr galileo and it doesn't work too well with it. Sometimes it'll just keep spinning the galileo and it wont stop. When face tracking does work it sometimes moves the galileo past your face then stops. Also when rotating my iPhone the video will sometimes stay upside down and wont right itself. I have to quit the app to get it right side up again. When the app is fully working it works pretty well. The app has too many bugs right now. Needs a lot of work. Hopefully it'll be updated soon and be less buggy and work better with the motrr galileo.
Good but not perfect
This camera app is a great if you take a lot of videos with your iPhone. The slow motion is great for people who don't have an iPhone 5s. The videos that I took took with the app turned out pretty good and I found them to be better than the Apple Camera app. I really wish that the slow motion was slower (120 fps) but I think that 60 fps is the limit of the iPhone 5 camera.
In terms of photo performance I found that Videography is slightly better than the Apple Camera app but it wouldn't be worth buying if you just take pictures. It would be cool to adjust the ISO levels although I'm not sure you can do that with an iPhone camera. Also I'm not really impressed with the night mode as it doesn't really do anything spectacular.
One thing I would love to see it a dedicated burst mode. Currently you have to go into the camera and select the number of pictures per trigger.
I have yet to try the detection so I will update my review after I do so.
Great remote video app
We use this app for videoing therapy sessions with our clients. We use the detection mode so that it takes up less hard drive space when storing the video. There is excellent ability to adjust the sensitivity of the detection, also the frame rate and recording size. And all these features are the same with using it via a web browser remotely or just starting the camera locally. Additionally, the autofocus works very well.
With Family Sharing set up, up to six family members can use this app.
