Powerful controls & adjustments

Camo Studio gives you full control of your video, letting you adjust lenses, exposure, colours, contrast, and more; and it lets you zoom, crop, and focus your image precisely how you want it.

Apply cinematic styling and colour grading to your video with 18 bespoke filters, including support for custom Cube, 3DL, and LUT files.

Overlays in-use using Camo

Overlay your brand, spell out your message

Make it easier for people to learn about you, your business, or your project by sharing information throughout your video using the Overlays Editor. Use custom overlays and lower-thirds to say what might not otherwise fit into the conversation.

Put the Spotlight on you

Stand out in your shot using Spotlight to brighten yourself against the background. It’s perfect for any scenario where the lighting is less than ideal, and makes a remarkable difference to most webcams – no more backlit or underlit scenes.

Portrait mode in-use with Camo

Perfect Portrait

Portrait mode applies a bokeh effect that cleanly separates you from the background and gives you full control over apparent depth of focus. Camo’s Portrait mode offers the best performance around; it looks better and uses less processing power than other solutions.

Virtual green screen and Privacy

Use Replace, Camo's virtual green screen, to cleanly swap any image into your background. Or activate Privacy to cloak your surroundings with a diffused image effect. All without sacrificing on performance.

Find freedom with Auto Framing

No need to stay anchored to your seat. With face tracking features you’ll remain firmly centred in the frame when you move around, and with Auto Framing with zoom, Camo will maintain your on-screen proportions as you move closer to or away from the camera.

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, many newly-released 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, bulletproof 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.

FAQ

Which video apps is Camo compatible with?

Lots! More than 40, including Zoom, Google Meet, Microsoft Teams, FaceTime, Chrome, Safari, Firefox, Edge, GoToMeeting, Cisco Webex, QuickTime, Slack, Discord, WhatsApp 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.

Do you have non-profit or education discounts?

We do offer discounts for students and those working in education or for non-profit organisations. Please get in touch to find out more.

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 complicated and unreliable 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 cryptic Terminal commands.

We wrote about why we built Camo.

How does Continuity Camera compare?

Camo and Continuity Camera share an original thought: that you can achieve great video using just the camera you already have in your pocket.

Camo started from this idea and in the years since has been continuously improved and upgraded. Using a great camera gives you a solid foundation to build from, but there’s still a lot more to looking incredible on video.

Check out our comparison of Camo and Continuity Camera to find out more.

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 15 Pro. Or iPad Pro.

It’ll run on any Mac with macOS 10.15 or newer, and on any PC with Windows 10 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 17 and macOS 14. It is optimized for Apple Silicon.
