The Holiday Season is upon us; which means it's time to start thinking about (and buying) some gifts for the people in your life. Whether you are looking for a gift for a friend, family members, or yourself, we have some great ideas for you here at VJ. One such gift is MAVIS - Pro Camera App for iPhone.
The MAVIS app is one of the best camera apps for iPhone.
iPhones are capable of shooting amazing video. The newest model, the iPhone X, shoots in full 4K and has a stunning dual camera system that can make its footage rival that of any DSLR on the market. While the native camera app has gotten better and better with each software update, it has it's limitation. While you can control manual functions like focus and exposure from the native app, it is sometimes difficult to use, and certainly not easy. That is where MAVIS is great.
The MAVIS app gives you all the manual control features you would expect with a DSLR right on your iPhone. Not only can you adjust focus and exposure easily, but also you can monitor them with peaking lines for focus and zebra lines for exposure. Additionally you have a waveform monitor, vectorscope to make sure everything is done exactly right. It also give you more audio controls, audio metering, custom resolutions, framerates and recordings formats.
This is a great tool for producers who work with their iPhone for their work and want to ensure the same quality and control that they would get with a traditional camera with the flexibility and ease of use of an iPhone.
The app costs $16.99 but it is worth every penny of the high price-tag. You can learn more and download from MAVIS.
