MoviePro updated for iOS 8: brings 3K video to iPhone 6, high bitrates

MoviePro as the name implies is an app that will squeeze out the most of the camera on your iOS device, and is a perfect fit for enthusiast smartphone videographers. It’s also our favorite iPhone video replacement app for its stability, and extremely high quality of recordings: you can capture footage at up to 3K resolution and select bitrates as high as 50Mbps for 1080p Full HD video, nearly triple the default iPhone camera bitrate.

Now, MoviePro has been updated for iOS 8 and introduces a host of new features for the iPhone 6 and iPhone 6 Plus. The version number goes up to 3.2, and the price remains at $4.99 - a bit high for iOS app standards, but definitely matching the rich functionality the app provides.

When it comes to the iPhone 6, with MoviePro, you can now record 3K video (3072 x 1728-pixel) at up to 120Mbps bitrate. You can also easily switch between 1080p at 30fps, and 1080p at 60fps, and you also have several presets that you can customize to quickly switch between various recording modes.

Audio controls are equally rich: you can use uncompressed high-quality audio, select audio gain levels, and use the app with external Bluetooth microphones.

Wow, not bad. I do a lot of home movies - but I use iMovie for 90% editing and the rest using 3rd party apps, Gonna give this one a try.

woah.... cant even give the i"Customers" all of the Four Ks........iphone is such a joke...... they literally are robbing people blind!! ;-D (Attn: slow ppl and/or iusers: kuz they apparently cant see the diff between 3K and 4K in their Brain Washing..I mean.. "Focus Groups") BIG MONEY----little tech, has never been more obvious

classic anti-apple vomit.. I can say your Android cant offer 240fps video... what a joke... See I can see the difference in video shot at 30fps, 60fps, 120fps, and 240fps - it's dramatic. the difference between 1080p and 4K is so little that 90% of people dont see the difference, specially when 90% of video watched is streamed thru bottlenecks of internet. But yes, act like 4K is absolutely necessary, but ability to record at 240fps is just a gimmick... Better hold on to those specs... you gonna need em using Android...

waaaiittt D-: so what about the note 3 ???? wait.....what......about.....THHHAAA......NOOTTEE TWWoOO?!?! which came out in...WAAIIIITTT......2012!!!!! ur welcome! :-D p.s. GS4, GS5,...... should i continue ??? naaaaa...... hows all that Crow taste??? (probably even the GS3.....Too lazy to check)

5. g2a5b0e unregistered

He's actually right. There are no Android devices that do the 240fps slow-mo & no amount of periods, question marks, & exclamation points will change that. You're not too lazy to check. You're clearly just lazy in general with spec knowledge & your grammar.

No, you're actually wrong the s5 does actually do 240 fps slow motion as well as the now 2 & 3. I agree the question marks and periods were excessive but everything they wrote was in fact factual.

24. g2a5b0e unregistered Read the article. You are incorrect. I own a Note 3 & I had a Note 2. Neither one has the capability. The S5 can do slow motion at 120fps, not 240fps. As I stated, no Android devices can do 240fps slow motion. There's your link, reckless562.

its called the 1/8th option on the slow motion section. natively it does it. It just doesn't do it that well. I think Iphones strength is that even they come way after everybody else the quality is usually way stronger. Android phones come out with stuff first but usually a rushed and low quality version. Apple waits and then releases a higher standard. and im a android user but facts are facts.

26. g2a5b0e unregistered

I concede. Looks like you're right. I found the option. I never knew that's what it was. Looks like PA was unaware as well. Doesn't make that guy any less of an idiot though.

4 the record, the puncuation helps "tone of voice," and "inflection when speaking," get through a medium of no sound. in this case that medium is text. buuutt, the "excessive" puncuation is needed in order to shamelessly (and almost literally) beat the FACTS in to the shamelessly stewpid. thanks 4 the props?!

you're absolutely right. android doesn't natively do 240fps but some of their phones do support 4k video recording. with that said having an app which doesnt require root/jailbreak to alter the bitrate recording is fantastic. The resolution that a phone can record doesn't mean the world if its in a lower bitrate. I'm a android user and I'm giving a tip of my hat to Apple for this one.

ummm . the note 3 does 240 fps , and the s5 and the note 4 . its hidden in the settings on the slow motion section and they don't advertise it cause the bit rate is low and the quality is pretty crappy. I realize you was trying to put him in his place with your facts but you just FAILED. the weird guy with the periods, exclamation points wins. its the 1/8th setting on the slow motion and its been around for years. No amount of defensive comebacks can change what im looking at on my Samsung note 3 right now. sorry for your fail

It just comes down to an 8mp camera still in the new iPhone 6's. Why Apple would still only put an 8mp camera in their latest devices makes no sense. Considering the first 8mp iPhone was the 4s, and that phone was released back in October 2011. The 8mp camera cannot support 4k video at all, so why even try? Why not release an iPhone with the actual hardware that can actually support it instead of trying to release software that can simulate higher resolutions.

It's really tiring to see all those spec war comments. Come on, guys, let's have a slightly more insightful discussion - we've discussed it time and time again, more megapixels means lower pixel size, and the 1.1 micron pixels for a 13-megapixel camera is pushing it. With equal sensors, you can just see how 13-megapixel devices shoot crappy low-light images (crappier than said 8-megapixel camera with the larger, 1.5-micron pixels). I'm not defending either, but it's about time we got over such superficial statements. It's the same old 'my quad-/octa-/hexa-core is better than your dual-core' nonsense.

yes, but when you have people in the world buying a device (its a computer for people that wouldnt otherwise use a computer -Steve Jobs) because they, know, No better, Apple sets itself up for anomisity towards themselves. most ppl here on the site want what u say. big ass pixels, on a big ass sensor, with Good software, n everything else is icing ex. ois for video (although is now a standard needing to be met for most phones). so most of us get, how more light gets through a biger pixel, but its NO EXCUSE for putting the same MP count! n then you expect people to not notice?? its not what apple did, its what they DIDNT do. it feels like apple always jus does the mininum, i swear. id applaud if they kept sensor size and upped MP count too. at least theyed be "inovating." also we want thinness but would rather have a battery to last us 2 days heavy usage, n expandable memory

Steve Jobs is dead, let it do. When you accept it, only then will you be happy and your Apple anger will subside.

The apps are the only place where android can't be compared to iOS.

Why doesn't apple provide these features in the stock camera app?

14. Victor.H

Posts: 1062; Member since: May 27, 2011

I'd say because some features are too specialized (I'd say audio gain is not something the regular user would need to worry about), while others like the 3K video put too much pressure on the chip and might result in the phone losing its performance stability, but that's just a guess.
