FiLMiC’s multi-camera magic comes to iPhone 11

Remember FiLMiC’s onstage demo at the iPhone 11 series launch showing off simultaneous multi-camera video recording on the iPhone 11 Pro? I’ve been impatiently waiting for the feature to debut in the popular camera app FiLMiC Pro. Well, the day has come. Sort of. You see, FiLMiC hasn’t launched an updated Pro app with the functionality. Instead, it’s spun off a new free app called DoubleTake.


Yes, it’s true. The new free app, made for the iOS devices only, brings the multi-camera recording feature to the new iPhones—iPhone 11, iPhone 11 Pro and iPhone 11 Pro Max.

It’s odd that it’s being released as a standalone app, but perhaps it’s a testbed. According to FiLMiC, you can quick-launch the app from FiLMiC Pro v6.10.5 lens selector.

Also, it’s worth to note that the maximum resolution for DoubleTake recordings tops 1080p@30.

And, while you can still use the older iPhone XS or XS Max but you won’t be able to record with both the rear cameras.

FiLMiC has kept DoubleTake’s interface simple comprising a compound overlay showing primary and secondary cameras. You can shoot in Discrete Mode (shot/reverse shot) – front and rear cameras or two available rear cameras simultaneously; Picture-in-Picture (PIP) composite mode; or Splitscreen composite mode.

You can also select the lenses you want to capture footage from—ultra-wide, wide, telephoto or front-facing camera. You have the option to show in 24, 25 or 30fps.

Go try it out!

DoubleTake is compatible with iPhone XR/XS/XS Max and iPhone 11/11 Pro/11 Pro Max, iPad Pro 3rd Gen (11-inch and 12.9-inch) models running iOS 13 and is available as a free download from the App Store.

The new multi-camera functionality will roll into the new FiLMic Pro V7 coming in late spring 2020.
