The new Moment Pro Camera App introduces a bunch of great new features in big update.
Moment has been making high-quality smartphone camera lenses for several years, but their mobile app has given users more control over the images they capture with those lenses.
Today, the company has rolled out a new update for their Moment Pro Camera App that includes exciting features like focus peaking, zebra stripes, as well as a range of integral manual controls for Android users that make smartphone filmmaking more feasible.
I've used the Moment Pro Camera App off and on for almost a year and the previous version definitely had a lot of the features you'd need if you were shooting high-quality videos, including manual control over exposure, ISO, shutter speed, white balance, and focus, not to mention 3D shutter, a live histogram, split focus, and video stabilization.
After dinking around with the updated version of the app for a few hours, I will say that I'm delighted with the addition of focus peaking and zebra stripes. It just makes the app that much more functional, especially since finding focus manually on a smartphone is virtually impossible to do in any kind of accurate way.
- Full manual control:
- Shutter speed
- White balance
- RAW files
- Color profiles
- Live RGB histogram
- Waveform monitor
- Manual focus
- RAW burst
- Multiple bitrates
- Dual-channel audio meter
- Anamorphic support
These new features do come at a cost, however. The iOS app has moved from freemium to a paid download of $5.99, and the Android app, which has always been a paid download, costs $3.99.
To sweeten the deal, Moment is offering those who download the app a 15% discount on gear bought at the Moment Shop, which now carries gear from over 20 different brands.
