How to record in 720p on iPhone, iPod touch and iPad

Full HD video recording on the iPhone, iPod touch and iPad is an amazing feature, but as you all know, Apple set 1080p as the default resolution for video recording on these devices, which can make the video size become too big and therefore can fill up the storage space on these devices quickly. What's more, you can't find a setting where you can set 720p for video recording in order to save storage space.

Well, you don't have to worry about that anymore because an app called FiLMic Pro will help you to record in 1080p, 720p or 540p. You can also set your own bitrate to further save space on your devices.

What is FiLMiC Pro ? FiLMiC Pro, is the award winning video app that combined with the iPhone 4S, beat the $5000 Sony FS100 and tied the $13,000 Canon C300 in the Zacuto Great Camera Shoot Out.

Other interesting FiLMic Pro features are :

-24p, 25p and 30p mode
-SlowMo, Super SlowMo, 2x Speed, 6x Speed and Time Lapse
-Image Stabilization

This app is available for $4.99 on iPhone (3GS, 4, 4S and 5), iPod touch (3rd generation and 4th generation) and iPad (2,3,4 and mini) running iOS 6.0 or later.

How to take DSLR-like photos using your iPad

We all know that DSLR image quality is amazing. One thing that I like most about DLSR cameras is the ability to take photos with blurred background but the front subject still remains sharp. We called this depth-of-field.

But, do you know that you can achieve similar effect with an iPad/iPhone ? Yes, that's right, but of course with a little help from an app called AfterFocus.

What is AfterFocus ? AfterFocus is a photo app that allows you to take a photo and later add DLSR effects such as bokeh and blurred background to it.

It is very easy to use, all you have to do is first, take a photo or you can select one from your album and second, highlight the subject with the marker tool so you can enhance the background like adding blur effect to it. You can also add Instagram-like filters to the edited photo.


Find a subject.

Highlight the subject.

Set the blur level.

Apply a filter if you like.

Apply a second filter if you like.


If you are interested with this app, you can get it from iTunes Store for only $0.99. That is pretty cheap guys. This is a must-have app for photographers. If you like taking photos, you will surely love this app.

So, enjoy photos that I took using AfterFocus below and I see you guys in my next post.

How to stream your movie collection from your PC or Mac to your iPad

Have you ever wanted to stream your movie collection from your PC or Mac straight to your iPad ? If you do, you can download and install AirPlayit HD on your iPad and AirPlayit Server on your PC or Mac. Good news is, both of these are free to download.

You can stream your movie collection wirelessly via 3G, 4G, Local and Remote Wi-Fi and without using your iPad storage to store movies. Streaming using local Wi-Fi is recommended because it is fast and it does not depend on your internet speed.

Streaming via 3G, 4G and Remote Wi-Fi will depend on your internet speed and will use up your bandwidth, so it is not recommended unless you have fast and unlimited internet access.

With AirPlayit HD, you can stream your movie collection anywhere and it enables you to play almost all video formats including mkv and flv on your iPad. Sounds great ?
