Cinema FV-5 is the perfect app for producing the best footage for any short- to medium-sized production. With it you can record the best material possible with any medium- to high-end device. Cinema FV-5 specially supports Android-based compact cameras, so you can even leverage a high-quality, optically stabilized zoom. The footage captured with Cinema FV-5 can be easily edited on any NLE.


For more information, visit the official website http://www.cinemafv5.com or download the official Cinema FV-5 User Guide at http://www.cinemafv5.com/tutorials/user_manual.php. For technical support, please read the FAQ (http://www.cinemafv5.com/faq.php) or write to support@cinemafv5.com.


The Lite version is a fully-functional version without any time or feature restriction: it just limits the maximum length of the individual clips you can record. Please acquire the paid version to remove this limitation and record clips of any length.


Permissions explained:

- Approximate location and precise location: only used for geotagging functionality (disabled by default, and requires manual GPS activation).
- Modify or delete the contents of your USB storage and take pictures and videos: required for the usual camera operation.

That app seems great However I have installed it in a LG Alcatel phone and a Samsung phone on both phones it does not recognize the SD card therefore there's not much space on these older phones you can't record no more than few minutes worth of video. As far as me using it to be able to try it out to edit some video it doesn't recognize that SD cards. The price of the regular app is not that much I would have no problems in buying it. If someone could help I would appreciate it.

Love this on my Samsung 20 plus. The standard camera suckssss... im disappointed at Samsung. This app has great low lighting with little to no grainy look. The aperture is wide. And the rolling shutter. One thing... can you slow down the auto focus. It looks nice. But too quick. I'd like a smoother tap focus from one subject to the next. Not sure if you get me. Thanks guys.

I like this app, but I can't get full functionality from it on my Moto G6. In settings, under "Set image parameters," changing Contrast, Saturation and Sharpness has no effect on my phone. Furthermore, the app doesn't allow me to change to a different frame rate (e.g., 24 fps). A big disappointment for such a nice app. Suggestion: create an assignable shortcut button (or 2) on the live view, that links me directly to any camera control for faster adjustment (e.g., Image Parameters/Contrast).

What's new

- New option in Settings/Audio to disable the AGC (Automatic Gain Control) algorithm for audio recording. This might help to record audio with less noise on quiet environments, if the internal sound card supports this.
- Now it is possible to start/stop the recording by using a hardware camera key, a Bluetooth remote shutter, or special hardware keys like the Samsung Galaxy S5 Active's Blue Key.
- Fixed issues with rooted devices not being able to write videos to the SD card.
