Blackmagic Design has announced a new Blackmagic Camera app that provides digital film camera controls for shooting cinematic, feature film quality content on iPhones. 

Based on the same operating system as Blackmagic Design’s award winning digital film cameras, these professional features give iPhone content creators the same tools used in feature films, television and documentaries, says CEO Grant Petty. Support for Blackmagic Cloud allows creators to collaborate and share media with multiple editors and colorists around the world instantly, he adds.
