Pro Camera App Update: Enhanced Features like ProRes, Apple Log, and 48MP ProRaw
The Moment Pro Camera app for the iPhone has received a significant update, introducing several new features and improvements. The update includes a new video engine, enhanced color space control, compatibility with Apple’s Log recording, ProRes codecs, reduced latency, and additional features.
Moment is well-known for its accessories and its popular iPhone/iPad pro-level manual camera app. The app is designed for both filmmakers and photographers, offering easy-to-use, full manual control over settings such as shutter speed, ISO, exposure, focus, and white balance. The latest update, version 5.2, brings exciting new features aimed at iPhone 15 Pro and Pro Max users.
Some key additions in the Pro Camera 5.2 update include support for ProRes (Proxy, LT, 422, and HQ), Apple LOG, 48MP (ProRaw, JPEG, TIFF, and HEIF) formats, Dolby Vision 10-bit HDR, REC 2020, and P3 Color Gamuts. These features provide finer control than the native in-phone app, particularly for those who want to utilize ProRes Log and capture 48 MP RAW photos.
The update also includes enhancements to streamline the workflow. Improvements in video pipeline efficiency reduce the chances of dropped frames, while latency when switching cameras is reduced. The gallery stability and performance have also been enhanced.
Here is a look at the full Changelog:
- Added support for ProRes video codecs (422, HQ, LT, and Proxy) on compatible models
- Added support for Dolby Vision video (10-bit HDR) on compatible models
- Added support for Apple Log on iPhone 15 Pro models. ProRes must be enabled in settings to access this log profile.
