This app has helped my workflow in a ton of ways. It works flawlessly except for playback. There seems to be issues that cause the camera to freeze when triggering playback through this app. Other than that it’s a great app. A small part of my touch screen on my camera stopped working but I can use this app to change settings. It would be great if the slate on the app allowed for editing project name, director, cam operator the same way it does on the camera. As is it’s a great app and must have.

Powerful For BMPCC Users! One missing feature though.

I’ve only used this app a handful of times, but every time I do it works flawlessly. The UI is clean and robust. The app response to the camera is lag-free. Using with the BMPCC 6K Pro.The only feature I would really like is the ability to see what the camera sees. It doesn’t have to be perfectly smooth. I would mainly use this feature to work with getting my composition right when I’m talking into the camera. If that was a feature, then I can really have a minimal setup for those types of videos, especially when I am out and about.All-in-all this is a great app!

Fantastic app!

I had heard about this app before, but only now considered it after I updated the firmware on my SpeedBooster and was finally able to get AF control of the lens from within the camera (BMPCC4K). Being able to control focus remotely while flying the camera on a Steadicam or similar stabilizer just became possible (without additional hardware investment). One feature request I hope the developers can bring in - the ability to rack focus using the Apple Watch. Like a simple tap to jump between two focus points. Using the watch-dial to manually focus would be icing on the cake!

No focus with Sigma EF but works great otherwise

This app is exactly what I needed, and it’s funny that it took people other than Blackmagic to design the iPhone app that everyone was asking for in the first place. Controls are responsive and simple.Would just like to note that the focus control does not work with the very popular Sigma 18-35, which I know a lot of people who own the BMPCC 4K use. To note, the lens is attached via Metabones Ultra Speedbooster. I tested focus control using aforementioned setup but did not seem to work. If it is possible to amend, an update in the future will be a massive boon.

Solid app, 1 request.

Edit: Developer kindly confirmed you can trigger stills. This app is fantastic - Got this yesterday even though my lens doesn't have electronic zoom, it's still great to be able to control the other features from iPhone in a quick responsive way. Was hoping there would be a trigger stills function.Note if you're looking for live feed or playback of your takes this hasn't been made available for pocket cinema cams yet.

Awesome app....

The app out of the box is very good and convenient. The design and layout is easy to follow and intuitive. So far the only problem I have is trying to manually dial in the shutter speed. If you use the left/right arrows, they toggle between shutter values EXCEPT the most important and most used shutter speed of 1/48. It is virtually impossible for me to manually dial in a 1/48 shutter speed. I have to do that in camera. Another feature that would really help is if they allow for adding letters to scenes (i.e. scene 3a, 3b, 3c etc.) Currently only allows to slate scene with numbers only (3,4,5 etc) Hopefully a future update can address these issues.

2.4:1 option doesn’t work.

I go to tap the 2.4:1 option and it selects it but nothing changes. All the other options change the resolution. I would like to see preset option to select saved recording settings and Lut selection. It would be nice to include every menu option if I’m paying you guys money. What about audio. I would love to have the ability to not have to use my screen anymore. Maybe I should just get the bmd Video Assist. I’d gladly pay $10 to have all options on my phone so I can balance my rig with the vmount battery (blocks my screen)

Please add time lapse toggle (on/off)

This app is a fantastic solution for my underwater housing. I often put my camera in water compromising positions to record time lapses and have not found a toggle in the app. This is the only control I have to open my housing to change. It’s so awesome being able to remotely control my settings, best $5 I’ve spent in a loooong time. But was definitely hoping to have the time lapse toggle for my application which is the only reason I docked a star. Wish I could rate this app 4.5 stars!

please add it abcdefg, May 09, 2021
Fantastic, a request!

EDIT:Just checking in to see if an update might be coming regarding focus pulling controls. Would be super helpful still! Even as a paid add on. Thanks!—-Love this app, this is my new favorite way of pulling focus when on a shoulder rig. Two request that would make a huge difference for the focus pulling aspect:1 - It would be amazing if the sensitivity of the focus pulling could be adjustable by the end user. Using it on my phone means that a small distance on screen can result in a pretty big throw and I would love the ability to dial that back 2 - if the focus screen could react to slides on a wider surface area, possibly the entire screen that would be helpful for eyes-off operation of the focus pull. The current slider is so tiny that if I am not looking it is easy to miss. Otherwise the app is fantastic, been a real life saver. If the functionality ever makes monitoring possible this would be the biggest thing since sliced bread.

Really great app but with one major bug

I use this app on my Blackmagic Pocket 6K Pro. I love all the functionality of this app and it works really well. Only issue I’ve had with it is that the app technically lets you change resolution settings but it doesn’t seem to work when changing codecs. Changing between BRAW and ProRes just doesn’t work. Once I’m in ProRes, for example, it has no issues changing between HD and 4K but I can’t change to BRAW via the app and vice versa. One thing the app does that’s also annoying is when changing the resolution in ProRes— if you change from 4K to HD, it will crop in on the sensor and there’s no way to change this with the app. I have to go into my camera and tell it to use the full sensor in ProRes HD (and not just 2.8k). I don’t think most people would need to change the codec with the app, but if the app says it will do it, then it should just work

-- NEW External Controllers -- Connect Tilta Nucleus Nano & Nucleus-M to control Focus, Iris and Zoom, as well as Start & Stop Recording. Zoom and Focus control supported on Pocket 4K only. This is part of the new Pro feature set, which also includes Multi-Cam mode. -- MULTI-CAM MODE -- Multi-Cam Mode is now part of the Pro feature set, and includes these fantastic features: • Control up to 12 Blackmagic cameras at once • Create up to 3 distinct Control Groups, to give you fine-grain control over different settings for different cameras • You can choose to have changes made on one camera automatically update all the other cameras in its Control Group, or control everything straight from Bluetooth+ • Give your cameras Nicknames to quick, easy control Multi-Cam gives you control over the following features synced across an entire Group: • Start/Stop Recording • White Balance + Tint • Project frame rate (off-speed frame rates not supported) • Shutter Angle/Speed • ISO • Overlays • Slate • Trigger Auto-focus You can still control all other settings on a camera-by-camera basis, including: • Trigger stills capture • Iris control • Focus + Zoom (on supported lenses) • Codec + Resolution • Playback control • You can also set ISO specifically, rather than by camera group And of course, everyone has access to all of these amazing features: • Follow Focus (limited support for EF Mount cameras).

See below for more info • Zoom Control on supported lenses • Trigger Stills capture • Record Start/Stop • White Balance + Tint, including 5 helpful presets and Auto White Balance • Audio Controls • Trigger Autofocus (for supported electronic lenses with autofocus enabled on lens) • Off-speed frame rates • Aperture (for supported electronic lenses) • Shutter Angle • ISO • Auto-Exposure Control • Active Card • Power On/Off • Monitor Overlays • Codec & Resolution • Enter metadata in the Digital Slate (including location data from your iPhone or iPad if you give permission) • Control Lock - locks critical controls while recording, preventing accidental settings changes during takes -- Follow Focus -- You can now pull focus wirelessly right from your iPhone or iPad. There are some limitations outlined below. • Currently only fully supports Pocket 4K, but as of v1.4 we now have limited support for EF mount cameras - Pocket 6K, Ursa Mini Pro G1 & G2 • The camera does not supply the app with any information on the lenses current focus distance, so the app will not update in real time if you pull focus manually on the lens • Due to the nature of bluetooth, focus pulls may not be 100% smooth. It works well for nice slow pulls, but fast pulls my not feel entirely natural and organic. Unfortunately this is a limitation of the available technology. • On EF mount cameras, we can only offset focus from its current position, with no broader knowledge of where the lens is in its focus range. This means that focus marks are not possible. In addition, focus pulls on EF mount cameras can be quite jerky depending on the lens in use. -- Playback Control -- With Bluetooth+ you can control the playback of clips right from your iOS device. There are some notable limitations at this point. Currently you can: • Start playing a clip, either forwards or backwards • Navigate between clips, either forwards or backwards For now, you will not be able to: • Pause a clip that is already playing • Change the speed of a clip that is already playing • Control clip looping -- Zoom Control -- Control the zoom level on supported lenses. For the most part, this will only work on MFT lenses with electronic zoom. We are currently unaware of EF lenses that support this feature -- Slate-Only Mode -- As the name suggests, this feature locks the app into Slate-Only mode, without the ability to change critical camera settings or start/stop recording. This means you can let an assistant keep metadata up to date without the fear of interfering with important camera settings.
