'This is a great app'

'This app is great and the upgrades in the new version make it even better. I am a cinematographer and find it very helpful to
photo storyboard and weigh the pros and cons of aspect ratios with a director.'

'This video producer loves it'

'It’s a great app for point and shoot moments for people who want to throw a little extra flavor on the video or picture. It’s
not a full on camera app. There are plenty of apps for that. This is for the people who want to choose the aspect ratio for their
memories and maybe toss in a few other

'Finally a way to take pics using the whole phone

'I was looking and hoping for an app like this when Rachel Morrison announced it last year. I’ve been using it for months and
it’s really great. I was hoping they would update it to make it easier to adjust exposure and looks like they have. THANK YOU
FOR MAKING THIS! I used to use the FB Messen

'Thank you!'

'Thank you for the long-awaited update, guys! It’s looking great. I’ve had CineScope on my home screen for a long time and
have used it often. The increase in video resolution, options for RAW photos and slow motion, frame rates, etc.. these are all
very welcome upgrades. One question: is it pos

'The best camera for different aspect ratios'

'This 2.0 update brought every single thing I would want. I can enter custom aspect ratios and adjust by typing in what I want, I
can shoot in whatever frame rate and resolution I want, the UI is still excellent. I am happy to have waited this long for this
update.\n\nIt may not have the powerful ma

'I am absolutely in love with the app and how it allows you to create professional looking narratives, though I am running into a
problem when recording: I am only able to shoot in 720p and you can imagine the frustration I (and I assume many others) are
facing. You have mentioned that you are worki

'Needs Updates'

'This is an incredible app. I truly utilize, and take advantage of this app in all it’s capabilities, however, there are some
updates that are long overdue. I’m aware they’re working on a 2.0 Version, which hopefully will include the addition of manual
controls. Having the ability to control t

'Great app for the up and coming cinematographer'

'I\'m glad they fixed the sound, it\'s like we can now film actual movies with an aspect ratio without having to do it in post
production! Keep up the good work, I always use the custom feature to make 1.43 (IMAX) pictures or videos!'

'I\'m expecting Apple to input the aspect ratio feature soon so I\'m a little disappointed this app hasn\'t been as responsive as
I would\'ve liked. I didn\'t know the no sound issue was a bug, I figured the how the app is! Bummed because I could\'ve had so
much more footage documented by now. Ah we

'Before to get a widescreen scope aspect or even 16x9 shot I would have to crop my iPhone pics with a different app after
shooting. CineScope allows me to compose specifically for those Aspects (1.85, 2.39, 1.78) It\'s fast and straight forward and a
much better approach to composing your shots. Sin

aspect ratio…kind of what I’ve been waiting for. Plus I like the IG ready functionality. Fersure worth $3.99...'

'The iPhone and its associated apps have become indispensable tools for today\'s Cinematographer. While there are a few
viewfinder type apps out there, none of them are as simple and efficient to use, and the point of these apps is to make our work
simpler and faster. I just used this app on a loc

Stabilization needs to be fixed

I wish you could change the ratio in the built in app but you can’t, so I use this app. It’s great except the stabilization is
trash. Please fix it and I will give it 5 stars...

No 4K 24p support

I like being able to shoot in 2.20:1 widescreen on my phone. The issue I have with this app is that I can’t shoot in 4K at 24fps
which my iPhone is capable of doing. So I have a choice of shooting in 1.78:1 in full 4K 24p or reduced quality at 30p. Hope
someday soon this app will allow full 4K 24p v

fix camera mode?

I would love to have the regular camera mode instead of video because the field of view is wider than the native video mode or a
upload from camera roll would be great. thanks

Also I have a few suggestions for the app:
-LED flash support
-Slo-mo (60,120 FPS) support
-Front Camera Support

The option to see photos and videos from camera roll has been updated because of a new iOS 8 update. What needs to be added is a
way to upload an existing video from camera roll
