Your smartphone is about to take another step toward becoming a professional videography tool. Filmic Pro will soon be releasing an update that will include a log mode, increasing the app's versatility and capabilities all the more.
If you haven't used Filmic Pro on your smartphone, you're definitely missing out. The app is a huge upgrade from the stock camera/video apps on most any phone, giving features like variable-speed zoom, full manual controls with pull capabilities, multiple resolutions and aspect ratios, and more. With their next update, they'll be releasing a feature that should make most videographers jump for joy: a log mode for flat picture profiles. Filmmaker Matteo Bertoli has been using a beta version of the feature on his iPhone 7 Plus. Check out the ungraded and graded footage below:
As you can see, the flat profile allows a lot of versatility in how one chooses to grade the image, which allows filmmakers to render their work more to their personal taste. Remember that what you see above is just Bertoli's personal take; the beauty is the versatility that the log profile allows. There's no word yet on when the update will be released, but hopefully it's soon!
