I think that several (if not all) photographers among us have used a smartphone for making videos and photos, and there is nothing wrong with that, I also do that sometimes. As they say: the best camera is the one you have with you. Even for product shots I dare to use the smartphone, easy and fast. FiLMiC, the site we are talking about here has developed software for your smartphone (Apps for iOS and Android), to get more out of it than the standard available applications, and although the apps are not free, they may still be useful for a few. If you are interested click here.
I haven’t tested the apps, so I can’t say if they’re good or bad, and as always, I am not sponsored by this company either, as far as I’m concerned it’s just about the FREE Luts 🙂
Mobile Cinematography for Mobile Phone.
Apps for iPhone, Android,
Focus Peaking and Film Simulations,
and … Free Luts !
Four luts in Cube format, zipped.
Use : mainly Video (limited usability for pictures – tested in Darktable)
Example of the “FiLMiC_deLog_V2.CUBE” in Darktable, left unaltered, right cube activated – blend mode hardlight @ 85%
Now that I’ve switched completely from Pentax DSLR to Fujifilm, I also use the great features such a camera offers, including Recipes – especially on my new X-H1 !
“Vintage Summer” is one of those I love, but there are many more @ https://onecameraonelens.com/ -> Fuji – or click below :
