Clearer ideas

Education is communication

While you focus on verbal communication, Camo takes care of the visual, delivering broadcast-quality video and options like customisable lower-thirds to engage your audience and establish credibility.

Now, whether you’re teaching, presenting, collaborating on projects, or sharing your work with the public, your expertise can have visuals to match.

You’ve spent years refining your ideas and methods - now share them clearly with Camo.

Get started

Communicate with quality

Unpixelate your insight

Using just your smartphone and Camo’s intuitive interface, get set up in minutes and start sharing your expertise on Zoom, Meet, Teams, or other platforms.

Simple overlays

Communicate your expertise

Keep the focus on you with bokeh and zoom control, establish your credentials and affiliation with overlays, and refine your image with fine adjustments: you’ll get high definition, professional video, with no IT support required. It just works.

“I've been ecstatic with the Camo-enabled experience both on Zoom and Teams, and everyone comments on how great my video looks! I really love the beta Bokeh "Portrait mode" feature, which does such a nice job of keeping student focus on me, rather than background noise. I also really value the "preview" features you have incorporated, because they allow me to optimize the view prior to joining a meeting. That seems to me like a pretty big plus for those entering the virtual front of a lecture hall.”

– Donald D. Anderson, Ph.D. Professor and Vice Chair of Research, University of Iowa

Clarity that connects

With Camo, what was a stopgap in place of in-person interaction becomes a powerful tool. Present your polished ideas to students, colleagues or the media from wherever you are, without having the experience downgraded by a subpar webcam.

It’s the simplest way to create compelling, watchable video content, using hardware you already own.

Camo is the catalyst behind engaging online learning. Unlocking my iPhone’s camera allows me to create inspiring video content for students to spark learning and cement growth. I was so delighted and comforted when I noticed you already had a section in the app to confirm it works with Mmhmm (and literally EVERY other tool I can think of).”

– Professor Daniel Pfaltzgraf, College of Business & Innovation, University of Toledo

The flexibility to fine-tune your tutorials

Whether you’re streaming live, recording content or both, you’ll have all the options you need to tailor your visuals to your teaching.

In Camo Studio, you can see how the image looks in real time as you choose the picture resolution, select frame rates, decide on landscape or portrait modes, configure multi-camera setup, and adjust the picture.

Stay plugged in and powered up with a USB cable, or get creative with different angles and greater mobility when connecting via Wi-Fi.

Camo is a wonderful and flexible resource for music teaching and streamed performance online, making dual or multiple camera set-ups very doable. I recommend it to all my colleagues and students.”

– Simon Purcell, International Chair in Improvisation, Guildhall School of Music & Drama, London UK

Your phone’s camera has optics far more advanced that most webcams - download a free version of Camo today to try it out.

“After spending months searching and researching a decent web cam, I finally realized my best option was left unused in my desk drawer. Thanks to Camo I am able to use my old iPhone to share a more professional face with my colleagues.”

– Bjorn Bulthuis, Marlborough College Deputy Head (Academic)

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 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 14 Pro. Or iPad Pro.

It’ll run on any Mac with macOS 10.13 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 16 and macOS 12. It is optimized for Apple Silicon.

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 phone 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.
