Start button should be bigger and separated from other controls. Please add exposure and focus lock.

I use your app a lot! And I really love it. When I ever show the video results of your app everybody's totally amazed!

But everybody who is playing and me are totally confused with the start/stop button. It is not very user-friendly. As an experienced UX designer I would suggest you to make this control a bit bigger (about 44x44 pixels) and separate it from other controls. This will really enhance your app. Also I see that app becomes very slow for about 2 sec before recording starts. But may be it is a technical issue...

And of course if you add Focus and Exposure lock SteadyLens would just become the best (and almost pro) videocamera in appstore!

Hello Pasha,

The start button will be bigger in the next version. Many UI improvements and new features are also on their way. Stay tuned!

The lifted image format, as seen in Filmic Pro, was my suggestion to other camera app makers many months before Filmic Pro appeared. Feel free to use that.

I like your record button. Dark when no recording is happening. Lit when rolling. Too many other camera apps don't have a record button that bold and obvious.

Exposure, focus and WB lock ideas are to be encouraged.

Is it possible to make this work with previously shot images? That would be a Good Thing.

Exposure, focus and WB locking will be supported in the next release. We've also improved the UI. Still some polishing and debugging left to do, but hope to see it released soon!
