Improving Video Quality of The iPhone 4S with Almost DSLR

The iPhone 4S has one of the best cell phone cameras in the business. However, this doesn’t mean there isn’t room for improvement. One way to improve the video quality of the iPhone is with a little $1.99 app call Almost DSLR.

Almost DSLR gives you almost DSLR level control over your iPhone’s camera. The app allows you to lock exposure, focus and white balance so you don’t get all those shifting colors and focus when filming night scenes. The app also offers a self-timer, anti-shake and gridlines.

The best way to demo the app is to show it in action, and that’s what I did as Sally was riding the carousel at the Irvine Spectrum Center. If you film videos with your iPhone, Almost DSLR is a must have app.

  29. Cheolsu says:

    I was planning to get an Iphone 4s next month. I currently have a 3G. Nice video quality with the app.

  30. Hi John
    Bundle of thanks for the innocent video…

  31. Divya says:

    recently also iphone have introduced some new features. with the camera efficienc….

  32. D says:

    This app doesn’t seem to engage the new stabilization control and makes everything look choppier. I’ve tried it on my 4S with the same results. You CAN lock AE/WB/Fouc on the iphone 4S WITHOUT this app by simply touching the screen where you want it to lock on and holding it down. The screen will blink and you’ll see the AE/WB/Focus lock title come on the screen. I hope they fix the stabilization thing with this program.

  33. AAAaaaaaaaaaaaaaaah… So that’s the difference maker…. I saw my cousin’s phone and I didn’t think the iPhone 4S camera was that good for an 8MPX – but this app changes everything doesn’t it 🙂

    What’s impressive about your video, John is the fact that this was filmed in the night time and it’s constantly moving… Great way to prove quality; I’ll stick to my Kodak Zi8, but the major thing about this is that you have it with you all the time – and my zi8 is almost never with me…

    I think I might get the 4S

  34. video quality is improved with some additional features
