Camo is an app for capturing the absolute best video you can with whatever device you choose. It began by allowing phone users to pair the advanced cameras on their Android, iPhone or iPad with their Mac or PC. Now it works its magic for users of any connected camera, including webcams, DSLRs, mirrorless, built-in cameras and even action cams.

To learn more about Camo and its features, check out Camo's product page.

The core component of Camo is Camo Studio, the central interface where users can view, refine and customise the video captured on their device. For those using their phone as a camera, there’s also a companion mobile app.

Camo vs Camo Pro

Camo is available in free and paid editions. There’s plenty to love in both versions, for different reasons. Here's how we think of them.

Camo's free edition is great for straightforward, high-quality calls, streaming and recording, but lacks image adjustments. It gives you resolutions up to and including 720p video, and for phone users, the choice of the device's selfie or main lens (the wide one), augmented reality (AR) modes and screen dimming. All users will also have full use of Overlay features and the LUT filter gallery, plus access to your device’s audio, if it has that capability. With the free version, you can also connect multiple devices and switch between them.

If you upgrade to Camo Pro, you get the following:

iOS and Android users

  • Access to every lens on your phone (such as selfie, telephoto, ultra-wide & wide)
  • Background effects on supported iPhones and computers, including the bokeh and shallow depth of field in "Portrait Mode," light-correcting Spotlight, diffuse Privacy blur, and virtual green screen. Portrait and Privacy modes are available on Android.
  • Control of the device's flash for use as a light (turn it on and off, control the brightness)
  • Access to any resolution up to 1080p
  • Video mirroring
  • Rotation of the feed in 90° increments (in case your phone is orientation locked)
  • Framing and image transformation controls, including smart zoom (iOS only), auto framing, auto framing with zoom, and stabilisation (iOS only) - all to keep you firmly front and centre
  • Focus adjustments, allowing you to autofocus, focus on a particular area, or control focus manually
  • Shutter speed and ISO adjustments
  • The full suite of image adjustments, including brightness, temperature, tint, hue, saturation, contrast, gamma and sharpness

Webcam and other connected camera users

  • Background effects on Apple Silicon and PCs, including the bokeh and shallow depth of field in “Portrait Mode,” diffuse Privacy blur and virtual green screen.
  • Lighting correction and augmentation with Spotlight on supported OS and computers
  • Access to any resolution the device provides, up to 4K
  • Video mirroring
  • Rotation of the feed in 90° increments (maybe not needed here)
  • Framing and image transformation controls, including smart zoom (Mac only), auto framing, and auto framing with zoom
  • Focus adjustments, allowing you to autofocus, focus on a particular area, or control focus manually
  • Exposure and ISO adjustments
  • Image adjustments including brightness, temperature, tint, hue, saturation, vibrance, contrast, gamma and sharpness

You can see some of these controls in action in adjusting your video.



Camo Studio is compatible with any macOS computer running macOS 10.15 or newer, and any PC running Windows 10 or later. Releases for earlier versions of macOS going back to 10.13 and Windows going back to Windows 7 [64-bit] are available - please contact our support team for more information.


Camo for iOS is compatible with any iPhone, iPad, or iPod Touch running iOS 12 or newer. Camo for Android is currently in public beta and compatible with any phone running Android 7 or newer. You can read more about device and feature compatibility here.

Webcams and connected cameras

Rather than try to list the hundreds of devices that work with Camo Studio, we prefer to say that if you can connect a camera to your PC or Mac, Camo supports it. This means regular webcams as well as built-in devices, monitors with built-in cameras, DSLR and mirrorless cameras, inputs from capture cards and HDMI dongles, action cameras, other software virtual cameras, and just about anything else.

Other apps and platforms

Many popular video calling and streaming apps such as Zoom, Google Meet and Twitch are compatible with Camo. If you’re using Zoom, Camo requires Zoom 5.0.5 or above. For more information, take a look at our list of tested apps.

Thank you so much for this impressive free software! Do you have support for Ubuntu 20.04 and if yes, how? And on Android phones, is full HD (1080p) available already in the free version?

Thank you! Yes, 1080p is available on Android phones that are capable of it. We don't have Ubuntu / Linux support just yet, but we are evaluating it.

Camo's the only app that still works with iOS 12.5

Can I connect two phones at once?

Hey Matthew. You can, though Camo only shows output from one at a time. You can switch between them in Studio. 🙂

Guys, your software rocks! I tried so much softwares that pretended to work as good as yours. But after all, Camo is the only winner!

Good afternoon! Camo is an awesome app ... thank you! How do I use the front camera on my iPhone? I can't seem to find any selector to use either front or back camera. Thank you, Mark

Hi Mark, thank you! You can do that using the Lens selector in Camo Studio. See here.

Impossible de télécharger l'appli avec Apple Store

Oh no! Here's the App Store link. If that doesn't work, please search for "reincubate camo" in the App Store. 🙂
