About

Want to look your best on video calls? The camera on your iPhone or iPad is leagues ahead of any webcam on the market, and Camo makes it easy to use your iPhone as a webcam.

iPhone cameras are getting better but webcams are getting worse. As the Wall Street Journal reported, some 2020 laptop cameras are worse than 2010 models, and many only do 720p, which even YouTube doesn’t consider “HD”.

We’re taking a fresh approach to solving this: no ads, no spam, no fiddly pairing, no drivers, and a polished, simple app that lets you make the most of the amazing camera you already own.

Using your iPhone makes a huge difference compared to regular webcams, but Camo lets you do even more to look your best on video calls with detailed image adjustment controls. There’s much, much more to come.

For almost a year, I've been struggling to find a great web camera solution that works for Zoom/Meet/Facetime. Part of me wondered, why isn't there just a way to use the spectacular camera on my iPhone when I'm using my iMac?

Answer: There is. @reincubate Camo. Unbelievable. 🎉

Got my Camo beta invite and did some quick performance testing. Uses WAY less CPU than what I currently use and is much easier to set up. 🎊
Will definitely be adding this to my videoconferencing guide as the recommended webcam solution. 👍

Camo Studio free *humiliates* any webcam I've ever tried, including the embedded 1080p one on my previous workplace's LG Ultrafine 5k.

And this is with the free version, using an old iPhone SE.

I can't imagine how good the image can be with Camo pro on an iphone 12 pro 🤯🤯

I have an over-the-top Zoom rig with a big camera, but it’s a hassle to setup/breakdown. I put together a simple alternative for quick sessions: @twelvesouth HoverBar Duo + @reincubate Camo.

Turns out the gap between at the big camera and iPhone is less than you think.

Camo is an incredible app. I’m selling my old 4K webcam because of it.

How is nobody talking about this??

Instead of spending $2K+ for a DSLR setup, you can use your iPhone as a webcam, in just a few minutes!

It's MASSIVELY better than the FaceTime camera.

Over Zoom, it's hard to see the difference between a iPhone 11 Pro and a DSLR:

I needed to show my coworkers 6 different webcams I've tested over the last few months. Here's about 20sec of each, all recorded today.

Verdict? iPhone11 Pro w/ @reincubate's Camo is the best bang for the buck, esp. since you don't need extra hardware (just charge cable+tripod)

Will I go back to using a normal webcam after using my iPhone, courtesy of Camo by @reincubate? Probably not, no. Certainly looks better than my Razer Kiyo!

FAQ

Which video apps is Camo compatible with?

Lots! More than 40, including Zoom, Google Meet, Microsoft Teams, Chrome, Firefox, Edge, GoToMeeting, WebEx Teams, Slack and more. You can see the list on our site, or in Camo Studio itself.

Camo will never ask you to run some random command. We’re not like that.

Will Camo impact my privacy or security?

No. Camo doesn’t know what you’re using it for, and doesn’t capture or transmit your feed. Our privacy policy is here, but the tldr is that your data is your business, not ours.

What’s next on Camo’s roadmap?

We didn't stop at 1.0. Recently, we've released support for audio, "portrait mode", custom watermarks, and Windows. There's plenty more coming up next. You can read more in our FAQ.

How is Camo different?

Camo gives you control of everything from your Mac — with rich image adjustments — and it does all the processing on your iOS device, freeing up your computer’s power for work. It has a beautiful native app with Dark Mode support and full iPad support. It has up-to-the-minute compatibility with over 40 apps, and detailed guides on everything from mounts to calls.

Camo doesn’t bother you with "drivers". It doesn’t have an insecure pairing process — or ads! — and it doesn’t force you to rate it in the App Store. It’s got a built-in uninstaller should you wish to remove it: no need to run Terminal commands.

We wrote about why we built Camo.

How can I mount my iPhone as a webcam?

We bought every type of phone mount on Amazon, and tried them all. We photographed the lot of them, and wrote up our experiences and recommendations here.

What is Camo compatible with?

Camo is compatible with any iOS device running iOS 12 or above, so you could run it on an iPod Touch just as well as your iPhone 11 Pro. Or iPad Pro.

It’ll run on any Mac with macOS 10.13 or newer, and on any PC with Windows 7 64-bit or newer. We’ve made sure it runs on 2012 MacBook Pros and the 2015 12" MacBook. Zoom won’t even let you use virtual backgrounds on them, but Camo’s fine.

Camo is compatible with iOS 14 and macOS 11. It is optimized for Apple Silicon.
