  • Please update for Anamorphic 1.55X Moment Lens!!!

    By FoxtrotFling
    I love this app for shooting B&W photography with the 1.33x Moment lens for awhile now but there’s no option in the settings to change for the 1.55x Anamorphic lens that are now available. Please give us a quick external lens swap button on the main camera page and or in the settings menu. 🙏🙏🙏
  • Greedy

    By ImagingInsider
    Won't miss these developers if they go broke. No more ridiculous subscriptions.
  • You went and ruined it

    By Lav0c
    Enjoy the wrath of your loyal customers for treating them like walking wallets.
  • Annoying albums

    By Clowney Appleseed
    Why oh why does this app need to create a new album every time I take a photo. I don’t want a “Firstlight” album. I never asked for a “Firstlight” album. Just wanted a simple camera app. Not yet another app to crowd up my albums to the point of uselessness. Otherwise great in capture function. Just stop ruining the Albums function please. Make it optional.
  • Now useless without buying more

    By Rekitjr
    Showing a complete lack of loyalty filmic abandons the users that originally used their apps trying to grab more money
  • No Zoom?

    By pbarton66
    The developers seemed to have missed adding zoom to the interface. Not a bad app but there are better photography apps available.
  • Lost my trust

    By davidsikes
    With Filmic’s pricing changes, I don’t trust this company any more and uninstalled all of their apps. Lots of great photo apps out there.
  • What happened to you Filmic?

    By Bowser Jr.
    So many bugs on a 14 Pro Max, and the app looks all but abandoned. What happened to you Filmic? You used to make great apps.
  • Not like Filmic Pro

    By Bdjfifjenekdofudyhdve
    I read that the Filmic Pro team made a camera app, and I bought it. I should have read more. This app gives you no shutter speed/aperture/ISO control. It doesn’t give you much more than the ios camera app does. Save your money for a real app. I wish I had. Filmic Pro is so great - what happened to this one?!?
  • App constantly freezes

    By nytimesloverinHongKong
    In iOS 16 with iPhone 14 the app is constantly freezing and makes it basically unusable. There hasn’t been an update for 7 months. Is this app dead?
