Moment Pro Camera App 5.2

Moment has updated its Pro Camera App to version 5.2. This new version features an enhanced video engine, color space control, ProRes support, and other additional features.

The iPhone 15 Pro has certainly increased the level of interest in people wanting to use smartphones for more serious video work, although it is important to keep in mind that while they are certainly very capable devices, they are arguably not going to be a substitute for a proper camera for a lot of professional shooters. In saying that, it does depend on your individual requirements and what tools best work for you.

What’s new in version 5.2?

The biggest new addition is arguably the ability to now record in ProRes 422, HQ, LT, and Proxy. It is also nice that you can choose between Rec.709, Rec.2020 HDR, Display P3, and Apple Log (on compatible devices).

  • Added support for ProRes video codecs (422, HQ, LT, and Proxy) on compatible models
  • Added support for Dolby Vision video (10-bit HDR) on compatible models
  • Added support for Apple Log on iPhone 15 Pro models. ProRes must be enabled in settings to access this log profile.
  • Added support for 48 MP HEIF, JPG, TIFF, and ProRAW on compatible models
  • Reduced latency when switching cameras
  • Added Moment’s new T-Series 75mm macro lens
  • When possible, switching cameras no longer resets the frame rate
  • Improved video pipeline efficiency, reducing the risk of dropped frames
  • Fixed orientation of HEIF timelapses using a slow shutter effect
  • Fixed occasional app freeze when exporting a timelapse
  • Fixed bug when switching capture modes using an Apple Watch
  • Bitrate changes no longer require an app restart
