I rarely leave reviews, but I have to express my appreciation for this thoughtfully crafted photo app. It feels like a tool designed specifically for those of us who appreciate the unique latitudes and limitations of shooting on film. It comes with plenty of options when flexibility in post is required, but there’s something special about committing to a shot without getting bogged down in editing that I can really appreciate. Firstlight will be a mainstay for me. Thanks, Filmic.

The app is great, pretty intuitive. I’ve only been using it for a little while and have yet to use it in a professional setting. It’s a little slow on the trigger tho and so you’re not sure you’ve got the shot until it shows in the camera roll. Definitely use some type of stabilizer until you get use to the way it functions, it’s good that they have a big shutter button. However I do like the familiar feel from using FilMic Pro and it has the desqueeze feature for anamorphic lenses. I love that I can shoot RAW DNG & TIFF files, the histogram is like right there and it doesn’t get into the way. I have an iPhone 11 Pro max so I can change between all 4 lenses pretty easily. Although I’m missing one huge feature, I hope it’s going to be a quick and easy update. Give me the ability to use the DOF MK2 adapter from BeastGrip Pro for stills PLEASE!!! I know you can do this. Cheers!

I have to revise my previous lackluster review of first light. It’s not really fair to ding the app for subscription offerings when they’re optional. The free app is quite useful and I love the swipe for focus & exposure. I also like the free grain & filter offerings. I think my fav Chrome Veloura also happens to be free. The battery draining issues reported... could be my device, but the behavior points more toward the latest iOS version I’m running. For manual iPhone photography I think I’d prefer something like the ProCam7 app that I already have and includes all the extra stuff. Or maybe the Halide app that’s been recommended. However, for the stated target use of First Light, I think they get a lot right. For no muss no fuss iPhone snaps, I might reach for first light over the stock app because I love the swiping focus/exposure control, as well as showing zebras for both clipping and crushing. Knocked off just 1 star because I wish they included zooming control though. Seems like they could give the user pinch zooming without degrading the experience at all. Overall, fun & recommend :)

I preordered this app and loved the function but thought it was ridiculous to need a subscription to access the RAW photo options. I’m glad to see the Filmic team has reversed this and found a new profit model. I’m not against companies making a living, but that was a bit much With that said, Firstlight has moved to my goto photo app replacing Halide. Firstlight is really simple to use, I can get shots setup quickly, and the peaking makes sure I’m focused where I want to be.

When I saw that Filmic made a still photo app I stopped reading the article I was reading immediately and went to go buy it. The camera seems good and simple but I will never use apps that require a subscription unless I have to. I will gladly pay up to $60 for a lifetime purchase but the subscription kills it completely for me. Yea I know that’s “the way of the future” but it’s still disappointing.
