Vizzywig 4K already gives you Hardware Optical Stabilization at 2160p 24fps and 30fps at up to 160Mbps on an iPhone 6 or 6 Plus. Give us a little more time on the Dolby Vision HDR, 120fps and 12bit 4:4:4. Probably less than 5 years though. :)
The moment I get my hands on the 6s, I want to post some 4K comparison footage shot with Vizzywig 4K so we can see the differences between the 5s, 6, 6s and GoPro 4 Black. I'll use Vizzywig 4K's multi-camera mode in 4K to trigger all four cameras shooting the same subject at the same time. Right now we support 160Mbps 3840x2160 at 24fps and 30fps on the iPhone 6. I wonder if the new A9 processor will enable us to push that even higher?
Vizzywig 4K has had this feature since April version 2.2.5
Version 2.2.5 - Apr 23, 2015
• GoPro Preview & Record Integration
• Multi-Camera Now Supports GoPro
• NEW Apple Watch Support (Preview GoPro or iPhone Cameras)
Full 4K editing workflow and distribution, multi-camera support and pro audio on an iPhone or iPad is significantly more complicated than writing frames to a movie file Majed.
When someone else releases a $0.99 app that does only what your app does, you'll understand why we didn't stop at 3264x1836 low bitrate recording. As you said yourself, what you are doing is not rocket science. The rest of the workflow, what we are doing, is significantly more complicated. Just try to add it and see.
Actually, Vizzywig 8xHD produces much higher quality Majed. Our iTunes description is clear about the 3264x2448. We aren't claiming 4K UltraHD like your description is. Update the name of your In-App purchase and your iTunes Description.
If you are able to capture frames at the same quality as we are and maintain the frame rates, why don't you just give users a setting to change the JPG quality setting like we do. If you cannot maintain the frame rates and match our quality level, you should disclose that to your users.
Look. I am glad to see competition. It's good for both of us. I bought your app because we do not yet support 30fps on the iPhone 6 and my personal phone is an iPhone 6. I was looking forward to using your app on my iPhone 6 for now to shoot 4K. However, I could not manually set the shutter speed or the JPG quality and there was no way in your app to upload 4K to YouTube or Vimeo so I had to connect to my Mac and import the file. When I opened in Photoshop, and checked image size, it was 3264x1836 rather than the promised 3840x2160. I realize it takes time to resample up every frame but if you don't do it, I have to do it before I can upload to YouTube in 4K.
More importantly though, I compared the quality. Of course I would want to know if your app is producing the same quality as my app. But it isn't, I shot several scenes with both apps and several issues stand out. In particular the resolution isn't the same. That could be because of lower JPG compression or because you aren't actually capturing 8MP RGB still images. Second is the aliasing around text and smooth objects and third is how gradients fall apart in the sky. If you can fix that, I'll concede that your app has the same quality as ours. Please address shutter sound issue.
The reason we have priced our app so high is because it is doing much more than just using AssetWriter to write frames from the buffer to a movie file. The original full resolution, individual RGB frames at 3MB each are important to us. These give us a completely non-destructive still images editing workflow. If we only save movie files while recording, we would lose resolution and quality each time we process during editing and export.
Vizzywig 8xHD has the following features your ProCam 2 app lacks.
1. Preservation of full resolution RGB still images up to 3MB each.
2. Full Non-Linear editing and finishing in 4K. This is worth $50 alone.
3. Manual Value Controls for Shutter Speed, ISO, Gain, Temperature and Focus.
4. 4K titles multiple fonts and colors.
5. 4K lower-thirds overlays multiple fonts and colors.
6. 4K scrolling credits with multiple fonts and colors.
7. Direct export and sharing in 4K to YouTube and Vimeo.
8. Multi-Camera 4K recording with sound synch across devices.
9. 4K Multi-Camera live switching and switch editing.
10. Sound volume editing, mixing and background music.
I was honestly looking forward to using your app on my iPhone 6 until we add support. When I realized the files were only 3264x1836 (not resampled up) and not 30fps and not the same quality as our app and no way to set manual shutter speed to 1/60th, and no way to upload to YouTube or Vimeo, I was disappointed as a customer and gave your app 1-star as a consumer. If you fix these things, I will give your app 5 stars because even without all of our 4K editing features, it would be worth $7.
In 4K ANA mode, with the Moondog Labs Lens, we are capturing full 3264x2448 RGB still photos at a data rate of 3MB per second. Then we desqueeze the anamorphic frames to 4352x2448 and scale DOWN to 3840x2160. The vertical resolution key to UltraHD is 2160p, we have 2448 scaled down to 2160. Please do your homework before making false accusations publicly Majed.
Also keep in mind the effect that compression has on resolution. I can prove that a 3MB JPG from an 8MP sensor has more resolution than a 500KB JPG from a 12MP sensor.
