A superb app! 5/5
By Bukusai Ashagawa
Works as advertised, well worth the $ As a professional photographer I’m finding it more and more feasible to use my iPhone as a legitimate alternative to my 6lb pro body and lens. Except for depth of field this app works great.
Customized preset kelvin setting would be a nice addition in an upgrade.
Everything you want to do in one app 5/5
By David O in Tacoma
This really is the all-in-one camera for you iPhone. Want to change ISO?. No problem. White balance, exposure time, manual focus.. Everything all in one app. Bought this app two years ago and it's still worth every penny.
The developers are extremely responsive and helpful too!
Great !!! 5/5
Would love to be able to set the ISO for the slow shutter mode
Solid app. 4/5
Looks like they just updated today, but the 240fps has been fantastic. I’ve had a few crashes here and there, but I would still recommend it.
App can be infuriating 1/5
There is so much to like about this app but the little things are driving me nuts:
- constant badgering pop ups to rate the app at every step before you have taken one photo
- forcing you to sign up for Instagram before it will save a photo
- locking you out of certain features until you buy upgrade filters - no advance warning of this.
- other pop up windows stop you from saving the photo until you do what the developer wants in terms of feedback, self gratification or taking you in directions you don’t want to go.
I am an experienced photographer. I want a more sophisticated photo experience than the standard Apple camera app can provide. I want to take photos, save them and share them. I don’t want the app deciding when it will allow me to do so before I have done some trick or step to keep a developer happy - it’s intrusive and unwelcome. That makes it a fail for the user.
Not a Digital SLR 3/5
By Cluedo Man
My review will be short and simple and about the negative. Auto focus is terrible most photos are slightly out of focus every time, I usually have to manually focus the image.
Best app to me 5/5
So far the best camera app i’v tried so far some say not but think so I guess that comes down to a personal opinion:/
How to turn off tips? 2/5
They are really annoying! Also I don’t want the screen to rotate automatically
Thanks so much! 5/5
Thanks so much. ProCam 5 let’s me take control of all facets my mobile photography. Please also consider updating your outstanding Formulas and Stackables applications.
nice improvements 5/5
its getting there love the new features. have been using slow shutter alot adjustments in ISO field also great add. most mobile device camera apps are evolving to include dslr features.
Great Pictures 5/5
Takes picture that are way better than Apple’s standard camera app. The manual controls are SLR like, any serious photographer will appreciate.
Options, Options, Options 4/5
There are lots of options in this app like all the other manually enabled camera apps, but this one feels very slow and sluggish on my iPhone X. I hope they are able to improve this with an update.
Great App 5/5
New update HDR not working on my iPhone X n why not take advantage of the sides of the notch keep them updates going I'll keep giving👍👍👍👍👍👍👍👍👍👍👍👍👍👍👍🌟🌟🌟🌟🌟🌟🌟🌟🌟🌟🌟🌟🌟🌟🌟🌟🌟🌟🌟🌟🌟🌟🌟🌟🌟🌟Definitely worth the $$$$
Developers GOOD WORK & they Listen
The first time in years and 5/5
It teaches and I learn 5/5
As complex as you dream. As simple as point and shoot for the quick The degree of adjustments and tweeting is astonishing. It offers Fibonacci progression for framing, for gosh sakes. It is a photographer's encyclopedia. It does help you capture beautiful pictorial compositions. Head and shoulders above others. As an added bonus, HDR is situated prominently at the top of the frame. It all there for your photographic adventure.
Pass pass pass. 1/5
Was looking for something that would offer better controls for my iphone10, this is not it. The app is too difficult to manage, too many cheap gimmicks without the true manual controls that you need. The worst part is when you try using night mode, it’s super delayed on the play back and makes it nearly impossible to sort out. I sadly prefer the stock apple touch and shoot over this.
the only reason this app won’t replace my stock camera app is because of the design, its too much going on and the design choices just don’t fit in. Yes you can toggle options on or off but for now i’ll continue to leave this app in my photography folder and when I choose to shoot raw photo will use it...
FUN APP 5/5

Just learning this and it’s a easy and has made me a. Better Artist
Eccezionale applicazione, consigliata 100%
Need to add slowmo 5/5
By Mikey G Dope
Add slow motion
Waaayyyy better than apple’s camera 5/5
Just get it.... the white point balance, and perspective correction are worth the 5 bucks!
Soft focus not a problem after all! 5/5
Thanks to the ProCam team for great customer support. Helped me to understand their product so I can get the most out of it. See below for the story.
I’m not sure why but the app doesn’t focus as sharply as the Apple Camera app. I’m sorely disappointed because the app has so many great features. I like the idea of having a camera with me at all times that can do many of the same things as a DSLR. I’ll keep playing with it. Maybe there’s a solution.
UPDATE: The out of focus problem seems to be related to shooting in RAW. Pics are much sharper in TIFF and JPEG. Still disappointed because I want to shoot in RAW.
UPDATE II: I contacted support and they explained that when shooting in just RAW (instead of RAW + L) I’m going to see a low res version of my image in Photos because Photos doesn’t support the RAW format. It will look great in programs that support RAW. You get a clear preview image in Photos when viewing an image shot with RAW + L because Photos is reading the JPEG copy and not the RAW image.
Nice to know. I can now shoot with confidence. I can’t wait to really dig into it’s capabilities.
This crushes Filmic 5/5
By Perfect reviewer
Where filmic has failed me each time, this has truly shined!
Unclear controls 1/5
I don’t know how to use this and the developers make no effort to help.
Think I'm in love 5/5
This is by far one of the better camera apps with date stamp and its hard to find one with this feature let alone a great app 5stars
Raw photos 3/5
Why all my Raw photos doesnt get focused? The jpg is normal, but raw not
Enjoying this app so far... 5/5
I had an issue with this app crashing. Since it uses a lot of RAM you have to make sure you don't have many other apps open (as per the developers advice). This seems to have resolved the issue.
This is a great app with many awesome features. It really shines in the UI, which is critical when shooting photos. I highly recommend.
I love how you get a full display when shooting a video and you’re able to toggle the necessary settings in and out of the display , is there a way to make this similar approach when you toggle to the photo option? The display gets smaller and you get an awful black border at the bottom , I know there is more information to display such as the histogram and , exposure settings ect.. is there away to use the same approach when taking a video. Honestly the only thing I dislike.
Upgrades iPhones camera app to HD Quality 5/5
I don't leave reviews so all I want to say is it totally transforms your iPhones camera to a much higher level both functionally and performance wise.
Best thing about it - takes a picture in the true HDTV aspect ratio of 16:9, right there=SOLD
All of this for free? Surely I'm dreaming.
You haven't used your iPhones camera until you've used the ProCam app.
Just got new phone and lost all apps, ProCam was one of the first "must have" apps I installed.
One of the few apps that truly make the feature a better one and with no ill side effects. Few will want or need anything more.
Ok that's it!
** 3/14/17 **
The new icon gets a neg from me too- I don't really care but I thought the app disappeared. The old icon looked professional. This looks trashy. Why not put a unicorn flying out of the middle?😁
I read other reviews here saying its to look like Instagraham. I have no use for that or twatter or fakebook. - all of those programs are a curse on humankind.
(misspelled on purpose)
*****UPDATE - 11/17/2017*****
Still loving this app although someone informed me it isn’t free, so somewhere along the line I decided it was worth paying for and ever since I still use it. I can’t tell you the techno-jargon that an Aaron Anderson might know, but I stand by my original impression all these years later. It makes the iPhone as close to a fully functional digital SLR camera as you’re going to get. I tip my hat to Mr Anderson, I’m not lampooning him. If it can attract someone with that level of photography knowledge, they must be doing something right. I have the iPhoneX and the update to Apple’s camera app is still lightyears behind a this. One of the few apps worth paying for. Why not offer Mr Anderson a job? 😁
A great surprise! 5/5
This app is full of details and customizations. Keep the good work!
Best Of The Best 5/5

The finest work of art!

Video Flaws 2/5
By RV Winkle
I’ve used the photo function of the app for many months now and I think it’s wonderful. The photos look great. So, I decided to try the video function for the first time on 11-11-2017 and I noticed some significant problems. Every video recorded, the app appears to work normal because after recording, the video plays without flaws if viewed within the app.
THE BIG PROBLEM ARISES WHEN VIEWING VIDEO CONTENT RECORDED IN PROCAM IN OTHER SOURCES SUCH AS IPHONE VIDEO PLAYER OR APPLE IMOVIE.
I noticed this problem the evening of 11-11-2017 while sharing the videos that I had RECORDED from USING the ProCam app throughout that day with family. (Video recordings of our family vacation this day).
So far, I noticed this BUG arises when I select those videos RECORDED in ProCam and try viewing them FROM my photo/video iPhone library. Every video plays normal for a few seconds and then AUTOMATICALLY drops in speed DOWN to SLOW-MO and CONTINUES to play in this mode until a few seconds from the end of the video, which then switches AUTOMATICALLY back to normal playing mode until finished.
The SAME PROBLEM exists using the Apple iMovie app when REVIEWING those same videos RECORDED in ProCam.
RIGHT NOW, the ONLY way I can view these recorded ProCam videos without flaw is WATCHING them FROM within the ProCam app.
I troubleshoot my settings and recording methods and everything seems fine. The ONLY PROBLEM is viewing ProCam RECORDED VIDEOS in OTHER APPLICATIONS.
I hope this bug can be fixed because the videos I recorded in ProCam, from my perspective, appear RUINED.
Camera freezes & more 1/5
Just upgraded iPhone to latest IOS release and updated ProCam to release 5. Takes one image and freezes - how I wish to be able to downgrade.... Solved problem by deleting and downloading app.
More sinister behavior - images taken with ProCam 5 on iPhone 7Plus, fail to import into Adobe Lightroom CC and cannot be edited.
Fast loading. 5/5
Better than the best app ever. The sensor warping that happens on the iPhone 6 Plus when recording at 4K is a lot better than it was before. The app loads much quicker now. Thank you for the continued updates.
One of the very best and most complete photo apps out there. I've noticed that a number of reviewers noted that this app often crashes. This has not been my experience using an iPhone 7+. The best feature is the manual focus mode which is very precise.
Please add haptic feedback to iPhone 8 4/5
It really helps to know when you’ve taken a shot.
Camera Pro 5 5/5
Great app. Will more than likely make you use this one and leave the old camera app.
Use your iPhone camera like a REAL camera! 5/5
This app provides the level of control prosumer photographers enjoy using real cameras, and it also outputs files in raw format for improved Photoshop and other post processing. More and more I just leave my Sony A7Rii in the bag and shoot with this app. Love it!
Best daytime camera app 5/5
Great daylight camera app. Tons of options. Whoever designed this app knew a great deal about photography. Pictures much better than standard i6 and 5s camera. Night mode also works good but if looking for a great night camera I’d recommend NightCap
Great BUT 2/5
I am no pro photographer but this app does improve on my iPhone 7+ camera. But THE FLASH DOESNT WORK. This is a simple but critical problem.
Was good 1/5
Now it is super slow to load nearly everything and the images are blurry if I choose the raw format
So many great features but a tad unreliable 4/5
This app is a beast. I love the raw format, the autofocus is powerful, and being able to access shutter or iso priority is a godsend.
The raw development editor produces strange blurring that sort of looks like focal length blur, but is not inconsistent. The blurring isn’t present in the JPEG and doesn’t appear when developing the same raw photo in Snapseed. I have been using ProCam for shooting and Snapseed for editing, as a result.
Also, the app does crash more than it should. I don’t think it’s a RAM issue. I have had it crash with an iPhone 6s, iPhone 7+, and iPhone 8+. It generally won’t crash during shooting, which is fortunate, but it will when changing modes.
If the inconsistencies can be smoothed out this app will be perfect.
Simply the best! 5/5
Pro by every definition! I was just about to delete this app because even with all the incredible unique features, it didn’t support true RAW (just a RAW+L)...but now with the newest update, they added true standalone RAW support! The icing on the cake! Now it’s the only app I open to take pictures. The 3D photo feature is super cool too. I love pushing my phone to the limit with this essential app!
Spams you for reviews, not even a good app 1/5
Every time I take a photo and check it, it asked me to rate the app. They even have a pre written 5 star response ready for you. Terrible practice.
Edit: And then for posting a negative review, the dev calls me a liar lol. Really immature response, I am glad I switched to Halide!
Great filter 5/5
Great filter and depth.
