In just a few days FiLMiC will release their still photo app, Firstlight. It is currently available for pre-order on iOS (Android beta will begin soon after), and will be released on November 8th.

For those curious to see what is in store for photographers from the makers of FiLMiC Pro - the industry standard for cinematic smartphone capture - I have put together a 'first look' that covers my top 5 favourite features:

The real highlights for me are

  1. Authentic film looks based on classic film stocks in combination with film grain
  2. Cross swipe gesture used for manual focus and exposure in combination with live analytics
  3. ISO and Shutter priority modes
  4. A custom function button that let's you main your most used setting to the main viewport
  5. Support for anamorphic desqueezing in app!
