Introducing Kino: Halide's New iPhone Video Capture App

Halide, a popular iPhone photography app, will not be adding video capture features. Instead, the development team behind Halide is working on a new dedicated video capture app called Kino. Kino aims to provide professional recording features and takes advantage of Apple’s support for log video encoding, which allows for more detailed post-production color grading. The release of Kino is planned for February, assuming all goes well. Apple’s own version of log video encoding, called Apple Log, is currently only supported on the iPhone 15 Pro and iPhone 15 Pro Max. Details about Kino’s features and pricing have not been revealed yet. The team has set a deadline of February 2024 to launch the app and will be openly sharing updates throughout the development process.
