MagicCam: Transform Your Smartphone into a Pro-Grade Film Camera

Tim Cook surprised viewers by using the Blackmagic Cam app on an iPhone 15 Pro to shoot the presentation for Apple’s new line of MacBook Pro computers. The app, released by Blackmagic in September, offers filmmakers all the tools they would find on professional video and digital film cameras. With complete control over settings such as ISO, frame rate, white balance, and lens selection, users can record professional-looking videos with ease. The app works on iPhones updated to iOS 16 or later and equipped with Apple’s A12 chip. Even with its high-quality features, it’s hard to believe that the app is free.
