How to turn your iPhone into a professional camera with Blackmagic Camera

Have you ever wondered how some directors manage to create films shot with an iPhone that rival those shot with big, expensive cameras? Well, I don’t know the answer, but it might lie in the Blackmagic Camera—a tool widely used by content creators and film students. Thanks to this little wonder, you can turn your iPhone into a professional camera.

Featuring a semi-transparent interface, convenient settings, and, most importantly, a connection to the Blackmagic Cloud for recording videos in 4K, this app has it all!

In camera mode, the app provides a plethora of settings to optimize your video recordings. This includes adjustments to frame rate, shutter speed, ISO, white balance, resolution, and more—all with unmatched precision to enhance the exposure and composition of your scenes.

Additionally, the app offers tools for managing assisted focus and stabilization, ensuring pristine video quality. Oh yes, and I almost forgot, you can also zoom up to 15x! Enough to make all the smartphones on the market pale in comparison.

But that’s not all; the Blackmagic Camera also provides access to advanced monitoring features, such as a histogram for checking exposure, audio indicators for sound levels, and even timecode to track recording time. You can also import 3D LUTs to preview a look while shooting.

On the media side, navigating, searching, and downloading your clips is a breeze. You can save them directly to your phone or an external drive. Best of all, all your clips will be synced to DaVinci Resolve using the Blackmagic Cloud.

If you’re working with DaVinci Resolve, the Blackmagic Camera proves to be a valuable ally. Forget the hours spent searching for footage in folders. With the Sync bin and other tools, your editing process will be greatly accelerated, allowing you to sync multiple iPhones seamlessly.
