Moment is known mostly for their high end mobile camera lenses, which take your smartphone images to the next level. But in version 3.5 of Moment’s Pro mobile app, they bring a host of professional mobile filmmaking features that could give apps like FiLMiC Pro a run for their money.
This our first big update to video. Filmmakers, this update is for you. Pro video features you need, not the ones you don’t. – Moment Pro on iTunes
New pro features to Moment Pro include must have mobile filmmaking features like multiple color profiles, adjustable bit rates, dual channel audio meters, a real-time waveform monitor and video RGB histograms. Other new features in vs. 3.5 include:
- Multiple color profiles – select from default, flat, or LOG color profiles
- Real-time waveform monitor – evaluate video brightness and exposure across the image in real time.
- Video RGB histogram – dial in your video color, balance, and exposure with a live RGB histogram.
- Multiple video bitrates – control over video quality with standard, medium (60Mbps), and high (100Mbps) bitrates to choose from.
- Dual-channel audio meters – provides correct sound levels with real-time precise dual-channel (when available) audio level readout.
- Anamorphic Lens Support
- NTSC and PAL frame rates and associated shutter speeds.
In addition, the news is that Moment is a step closer to releasing an Android version of the Pro Video app, with the expected launch date of later this month.
Does FiLMiC Pro have anything to worry about? Well, probably not … yet, especially considering that there’s going to be some news out next week that’ll make mobile filmmaking fans extremely excited.
But I’m a huge fan of competition, so if Moment can nip at FiLMiC’s heals with a steadily improving app, that envelope will continue to be pushed, and that means nothing but upside for mobile filmmakers.
The basic version of the Moment app is free on iTunes, but to unlock the pro features above, you’ll have to pony up $5 for an in-app purchase. When you consider that FiLMiC Pro is $15, dropping a “fiver” to take full advantage of your Moment lenses is a steal.
