This FiLMiC Pro v5 tutorial shows you how to turn your smartphone into a pro video powerhouse. Learn its limits, shoot within them, create amazing images.

Here’s an in-depth step by step expert tutorial and guide to shooting professional cinematic video with your smartphone using FiLMiC Pro.

Ever since I shot my first test with FiLMiC Pro on my iPhone SE, it’s become one of my favorite cameras. It’s a lot of fun to shoot and as long as you acknowledge the limits of a tiny sensor, a fixed lens and an H.264 4:2:0 codec, you’ll be surprised the results you can achieve by approaching it the same way you would a high-end cinema camera.

In this tutorial I cover everything you need to know.
