Shooting concert vids with Filmic Pro app
« on: February 21, 2018, 02:06:03 AM »
So I recently heard about the Filmic Pro app.  The general consensus seems to be that it's a really great app and allows you to shoot much better video than using the standard app that comes with most smartphones.  Not surprisingly, there are several tutorial videos available on Youtube.  However, I can't find a tutorial that talks about filming concerts with the Filmic Pro app.

Does anyone have any experiences they can share?

And just in case anyone is wondering ... Yes - I'd much rather use a real video camera to film shows.  But sometimes it just isn't possible.  But smartphones are no problem at probably 95% of the shows these days.  But my experience using an iPhone to film a show has been rather hit or miss.  So I'm really curious how much of a difference the the Filmic Pro app makes.

Looks interesting but would you actually use any of those features while shooting a concert?
Seems like most can be done in post with fcp if you wanted.
The big plus it seems would be the upgrade in Mbps, I don't think the iPhone does 50 on its own

I'd definitely use the exposure control to adjust on the fly.
