Review on this app:

I ABSOLUTELY LOVE LOVE LOVE LOVE THIS APP! I use it everyday/whenever I get a chance. I’m so happy with my purchase and will/would NOT ever regret my purchase. This app is great for photography, people who just love taking photos, people who might like old looking things and just honestly overall anyone. Never ever will I go back to any other camera app. Thanks to the people who made this app! You really changed my life. I would 10/10 recommend getting this and purchasing the extra $3.99. If you’re reading this and debating on getting this just do it! You won’t regret it I promise!!!!!

The most nostalgic VHS video filter

This app pretty much pays for itself. There’s so many options for customization that you’ll spend hours up to days and days discovering so many fun things. This app beats the rest of the bunch because it imports video footage fast and easy. If you do have clips that are longer than a 1 minute or 2, be patient and make sure that you have your device at least 80 percent charged with the screen option for it to not go off at all while it’s recording your footage. The only part that I would suggest is a sound leveler option between the original sound and the glitch sounds keeping the original sounds loud enough along with the glitch sound effects. Otherwise, this app is the best authentic looking VHS looking app you’ll find if you’re really a big fan of the old school VHS glitch looks. It’s great for importing footage and creating an old school look, but if you are filming yourself keep in mind that good lighting is key for the best results.

Not as many options!

A tad annoyed that the date and time configuration is not the same as the lite app. You can only have it in the bottom right whereas in the lite version it’s in the bottom left, plus I liked that the date and time was together. I wish I had an option to change the configuration. The title I find particularly annoying because you can only have it in the middle. I’d like to be able to move it to the bottom of the screen so it’s not covering everything up that I’m filming and I can have it on the video the whole time. Plus you have to hit menu, then app config to get to most of the app settings. I’d prefer one button to get this. At least I get more recording time and I can change the date. And I do like the old fashioned menu for color settings. I’d like to see some improvement though

Home Movies Never Looked So Good!

RarevisionVHS takes you back, if you’re of a certain age, to those childhood years or family functions that live forever on tape. With true-to-form videocassette audio quality and outstanding attention to detail with titles or time and date stamp, I’ve long enjoyed using this app to bring that feeling back. We even used it to film promos and a tiny bit of footage for an indie film I started in. I had intended to use my actual video camcorder for that, but its battery was having issues and a new battery wouldn’t come in time. Since I’d already had RarevisionVHS downloaded and had loved it, I suggested we try it to see if it’d feel the same, and it did! And it felt authentic to the mid/late-1980’s, the time in which the film was set. All in all, I’ve enjoyed this app for years and will continue to use it. Thank you, RarevisionVHS.

Please look in to my suggestion!! :)

I really love this app! I had the regular version before and this is the best pro version of any VHS camcorder app so decided to buy this one. I wanted to import a video from a few weeks ago and it was awesome how I could change the date to match the exact same day I took the video. HOWEVER, I realised there was no way to change the time on the video which kinda bummed me out (the video I wanted to import was taken at night time and the time I was importing the video the time read ‘3:20 pm’) so i have to wait until sometime later tonight to import it, that way I can post the video without the time being weird. I think it would be really cool if you added a feature where you could spoof the time as well since you already have one for the date. Thanks for taking the time to read this!!

This is a truly well thought through app!

I was skeptical but I was convinced by another reviewer who spoke of how various the app is, and they were dead on. I instantly was satisfied. There are all sorts of little tricks and tweaks you can make to create a solid VHS tape, or Hi8 which is my favorite of the settings. It does look very correct, and I’d like to compliment the zoom especially for being accurate to that style and besting the iPhone 11 Pro’s zoom (which is glitchy and jumpy and RUINS a video.) I would like to see more settings and ways to adjust them. But I do recommend this app if you have a reason to make a video look this way. It’s very cheap and the creators obviously care.

Amazing Retro App!

From it’s 80s purple/blue aesthetic to its videotape recorder button styles, VHS Camcorder nails the perfect time machine into the past of video recording while still maintaining cutting edge videotaping resolutions. It’s everything that any true retro video fan would love, from silly titles to spoofing the date, with multivariable grain levels, filters, and frame dropping. With its function to run up to 1080p at 30fps, it still retains clean and modern video resolutions as well as the option to upload and convert previous videos, a huge plus for this app. However a few changes could be implemented, such as the addition of different filters, more aesthetic control, as well as options to make the video worse or to include more static. Otherwise this app is absolutely amazing, completely worth the money, and serves as an excellent point of true 80s nostalgia

Gotten a lot better! But..

There are some small improvements that I feel are needed. Tapping should remove the graphics, not it and the date. Hiding the date should not also hide the graphics. And when going to Hi8, the tape and the green “TBC” should be removed and replaced with the “Hi8” logo. Change time between from 12 hours (e.g. 6:00pm will be ‘18:00:00’) or what’s available now; also a way to manipulate it as with the date. Also maybe programmable keys somewhere for keeping tabs with certain effects, since static and color bars would be useful if I could get to them and not swipe to them? I still would like for there to be a way to turn off the interference when under other effects

Absolute perfection! 🤩

As one who is really into the genre of eerie VHS tapes, or would say this hits the ball out of the park! The amount of settings to adjust the recorder the way I want is more than enough; not to mention the clever little features like “Spoof recording date” and “Frame Rate” that add a nice touch (there’s many others, but those in particular caught my eye).One of my favorite details about this app is how well the audio and video get distorted compared to an old camcorder my father used to own. The static, barely-able-to-make-out audio, just ties it all in for authenticity.If you’re looking for a quick and easy way to make authentic VHS videos with a click of a button, then definitely spend the few bucks on this app. It’s worth it.

Another note...

Note that most of the reviews are from 2 years ago when the app was in its early stages. Now this app has use of the flashlight, there are 3 filters (none, retrocolor, b&w, and nuclear[which is my favorite]) and the resolution options are 480, 720, and 1080p with 24,25 and 60fps. there is also now an option for random tape dropouts which is great. A few people are talking about making it so you can play music while recording so you dont have “a quiet video, or have to just talk...” Id just like to say that this app looks very authentic and you couldnt play music on your camcorder back then! lol i also think its very unnecessary. also importing videos into the app seems like a cool idea but also, ehh, you dont really need to guys, record what you want to with the app! theres no reason this app shouldnt have 5 stars across the board!
